More Information Edit | History

From the editor-in-chief's description of the issue:

Rarely, if ever, has there been an issue of DRAGON Magazine that devoted this much space to the unsavory side of society. In this month's cover painting, artist James Warhola caught a band of bandits in the act. Inside, Roger Moore and Tom Armstrong have teamed up to capture the bandit in words, describing that profession for use as a non-player character class in the AD&D game. And, DMs using the WORLD OF GREYHAWK Fantasy Setting can now get the definitive word on who's where within the Bandit Kingdoms, thanks to the map on page 14.

So much for bandits. Speaking of unsavory characters, the bad guys in CHAGMAT would win a non-congeniality award hands down (and boy, have they got hands!). This AD&D adventure, created by Larry DiTillio, begins on page 33.

Are barbarians unsavory, too? Well, that sort of depends on you. In From the Sorceror's Scroll, Gary Gygax unveils the barbarian character class which is likely to be part of the upcoming AD&D expansion volume, and he invites all of you who've been waiting for such a character to give it a try.

Also inside is the last installment of Roger Moore's series on the major races in the AD&D universe, this one concerning kobolds, goblins, hobgoblins, and gnolls - the creatures we call "The Humanoids," for lack of a more accurate description that's nice enough to print. Maybe you'll understand why these guys are so bad when you see the...things they worship. (The first one to correctly pronouce "Khurgorbaeyag" gets to be an honorary goblin.)

How about some good news? Flip the page to see "Featured Creatures," a brand-new section wherein we'll be showcasing the best of Gary Gygax's menagerie of new monsters for AD&D play. This inaugural column is about the Devas - "the minions of Good," as Gary calls them. And it is the number one, "look-at-this-first" article in this issue - which, even with all the attention we're giving to bad guys, should show you where our loyalties really lie. - KM
