Description Edit | History

Vol. IX No. 8 of Dragon Magazine.

Cover Art: Jeff Busch's second contribution to our cover in the last four issues is this colorful scene of a weretiger in the process of changing shapes - while a real tiger stands guard in the foreground. (from the contents page)

This issue featured The Gypsy Train - a moving scenario for AD&D game play, 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.
