Dragon (originally called The Dragon ) was a print magazine for the role-playing game rules Dungeons & Dragons . It was first published in June 1976 by D&D publisher TSR as a follow-up to The Strategic Review magazine (9 issues, from 1975). The magazine appeared on a monthly basis until September 2007, when it was discontinued as a print edition with issue # 359 of Wizards of the Coast, as did its sister magazine Dungeon . Instead, it was continued as an online magazine with a consecutive issue number.

Although the magazine generally dealt with the topics of fantasy and role-playing games, it mainly served as a communication organ for the D&D manufacturers TSR and Wizards of the Coast and therefore also focused on reviews and articles accompanying the corresponding products. In addition to the role-playing and fantasy articles, the magazine published reviews of computer games related to fantasy, science fiction or role-playing games.

Between 1999 and 2003 the Körner-Verlag published Dragon: your official magazine for Dungeons & Dragons, a German offshoot ( ISSN  0946-9826 ).
