Vol. XI No. 5 of Dragon Magazine.
Cover Art: "Spirit of the Night" is David Martin's second cover painting for DRAGON Magazine, and one that we thought would set the mood for the Halloween season. In David's words, "No one understands the intent of a painting better than the artist himself," so here's his description of what's going on: "In a shower of moonlight, a lone figure kneels in supplication to the image of a god worshiped long ago. Aroused, the elemental nightwind rises up, phoenix-like, from the ashes of the dead city. It carries the smells of the forest, invisible, yet potent as a prayer in the silence."

This issue featured The Witch by Bill Muhlhausen - From out of the past, a scary NPC updated and redesigned.
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.
