Description Edit | History

Vol. X No. 3 of Dragon Magazine.

Cover Art: It's fitting that an issue filled with things we've never done before should start off with a cover that's unlike any of the ninety-nine that preceded it. The artwork is actually a paper sculpture created by TSR's Dennis Kauth, who built up shapes and surfaces from a flat background to produce this scene of a faerie dragon serenely gliding along the edge of a stream, while the sword and small pile of coins suggest that some other creature had come this way before. The sculpture was turned into a photograph after being illuminated to bring out the three-dimensional aspects of the piece, and for an extra touch we tossed in some color on the dragon and the "Dragon" and had the colored part of the cover embossed. Why purple? Because a purple faerie dragon is the oldest and most powerful of its kind. And the faerie dragon itself is symbolic of DRAGON Magazine's contributions to the AD&D game; the description of the creature, originally written by Brian Jaeger, appeared in issue #62 and was later picked up for inclusion in Monster Manual II. (from the contents page)

This issue featured a special center pull-out Saga of Old City Poster by Clyde Caldwell, The City Beyond the Gate - A high-level AD&D adventure, and two special features from Gary Gygax: At Moonset Blackcat Comes - a short story of Gord of Greyhawk, and the Dragonchess game, as well as the regular ARES Section - 16-page spotlight on SF Gaming.
It also listed the "Gamers' Guide," which was an index of all the advertising in the issue.
