Dragon Radieux started as a French RPG fanzine, started in 1984 by Paul et Pascaline Chion. It later evolved to become a full-fledged magazine. There were 23 issues, the last one published in 1991.
The magazine's focus was more on player-oriented content (scenarios, player aids, gameplay tips) than on hobby news and game reviews. Dragon Radieux also published special issues describing their high fantasy setting (le monde de Trégor).
