Description Edit | History

Vol. XI No. 12 of Dragon Magazine.

Cover Art: Jim Holloway's sixth cover was one he particularly enjoyed doing. Samurai clash, wu jen hurl spells, and the earth trembles beneath the ferocity of the battle, bringing the essence of warfare in Kara-Tur to life. Looking down over the chaos, a general solemnly weighs the outcome, as his fate - and that of his fortress - hang in the balance. (from the contents page)

This issue featured ORIENTAL ADVENTURING: The realms of Kara-Tur and Oriental Adventures - Five articles, plus a 3-D castle you can build!
It also listed the "Gamers' Guide," which was an index of all the advertising in the issue and "TSR Previews," a list of upcoming products from TSR.
