Description Edit | History

Vol. X No. 7 of Dragon Magazine.

Cover Art: Whenever Denis Beauvais sends us a new cover painting, he describes it as "The best thing i've ever done" - and so far, he's been right every time. His latest work, "Spinning Tales," depicts a wizard and his distictive way of telling a story about a dragon, a princess, and a knight. You might know how the story comes out before he finishes it - but when you can see it as well as hear it, you can't help hoping that it never ends. (from the contents page)

This issue featured SUDDEN DAWN - their first "magazine module" for MARVEL SUPER HEROES, and 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 and "TSR Previews," a list of upcoming products from TSR.
