Description Edit | History

Vol. X No. 2 of Dragon Magazine.

Cover Art: Clyde Duensing III, whose work is gracing our cover for the first time, makes a point of not giving titles to his paintings, feeling that the image is more important than its identity. So you can call this painting whatever you want to - as long as you're not too cryptic about it. (from the contents page)

This issue featured Treasure Trove II - a section on new magic items for AD&D, 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, and "Coming Attractions," a list of new products from TSR.
