Dragon magazine, and later its sister publication Dungeon magazine, is a magazine focused on role-playing games, particularly Dungeons & Dragons. It was first published by TSR, Inc. in 1976. Since then, Dragon has regularly produced various supplemental materials for Dungeons & Dragons and other role-playing games.


After a failed launch of magazine The Strategic Review, gaming company TSR, Inc. tried again, launching a new magazine under new editor Tim Kask. Dragon magazine became a success, and published a number of supplemental articles over the course of the next few decades, including introducing new campaign material, such as the Forgotten Realms campaign by Ed Greenwood.

TSR, Inc. was purchased in whole by gaming company Wizards of the Coast in 1990, and Wizards of the Coast acquired the rights to all Dungeons & Dragons materials, including Dragon magazine. Wizards of the Coast continued to publish Dragon magazine until late 2002, when Paizo Publishing acquired publishing rights to both Dungeon and Dragon as part of a move by Wizards of the Coast to divest business ventures not related to its core business.

Paizo Publishing continued to release the monthly Dragon magazine until September 2007, when Wizards of the Coast announced it would not renew Paizo's publishing rights to Dungeons & Dragons materials. Dragon magazine was on hiatus until June 2008, when Wizards of the Coast relaunched Dragon as online content to coincide with the launch of the 4th edition of Dungeons & Dragons. Dragon magazine continues to be released online monthly.
