Description Edit | History

Vol. IX No. 12 of Dragon Magazine.

Cover Art: "Music Lover" is Robin Wood's first cover painting for DRAGON Magazine - an enchanting depiction of a kindly old silver dragon being swept off his, er, claws by a bard who apparently knows just which strings to pull. "Sorry it took so long," wrote Robin when she turned in the finished piece. "It usually doesn't, but there were all these scales, see." (from the contents page)

This issue featured a center pull-out, the GEN CON 18 Convention Pre-registration brochure, and the 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.
