Description Edit | History

Vol. XI No. 3 of Dragon Magazine.

Cover Art: This is probably the first cover painting we've ever published that owes its existence to a real-life experience. As Daniel Horne tells it, "On weekends some of my fellow SCA friends and I go into the countryside in costume. It was late afternoon and we stopped in an apple orchard for a rest. Then we started to sing the song that the dwarves had sung in The Hobbit. I looked ot the sky and saw ragged scarlet clouds - one of them in the shape of a dragon! I went home and quickly did a sketch of it." Daniel told us the painting is untitled, and suggested we come up with a name for it if we wanted to. Well, "Easy Pickings" seems like an appropriate title, no matter which point of view you consider it from. (from the contents page)

This issue featured The Ultimate Article Index - compiled by Jean Black, and the TSR Staff GEN CON Event Listing.
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.
