Dungeon magazine, originally called Dungeon Adventures, is a magazine focused on role-playing games, particularly Dungeons & Dragons. It was first published by TSR, Inc. in 1986 as a bimonthly periodical. Since then, Dungeon has regularly produced a variety of self-contained, pre-scripted, playtested game scenarios, often called "modules", "adventures" or "scenarios".


Advertised for the first time in sister publication Dragon magazine issue 107 (March 1986), Dungeon Adventures debuted in the fall of 1986. At first, Dungeon Adventures was published by subscription only by TSR, Inc., the publishers of Dungeons & Dragons. However, Dungeon Adventures (later simply called Dungeon) was soon available via newsstands.

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