From the back of the book
30 years in the making!
For three decades, Dragon magazine has been the official monthly resource for Dungeons & Dragons players. Many monsters, classes, and even campaign settings that have gone on to define the modern game first appeared in Dragon's pages, and a history of the magazine is a history of the game itself
The Dragon Compendium collects the most popular classic articles from throughout Dragon magazine's proud history, all updated to the current edition of the D&D rules. Selected with the input of current and former editors and D&D fans across the world, the articles in this 256-page volume are proven favorites - material you will want to reference again and again.
