THE DRAGON Vol 1 No 3 PREMIER ISSUE - TSR Dungeons & Dragons Magazine,AD&D,1976. Condition is Used. Shipped with USPS Priority Mail. Single owner put lots of miles on this early issue which provides articles on "Women & Magic-Bringing the Distaff Gamer into D&D," "A New View of Dwarves," several new character subclasses for Original D&D (healers, scribes, samurai, berserker, idiot (yes, that is correct), and jesters). The aspect I used most when I was a ref was the original D&D birth tables for ascribed social class, skills, father's profession, and race.
The editor of the issue, Timothy J. Kask is the one responsible for the introduction of the original D&D to my community while I was in high school, he attended the local university and it filtered down to us through my friends' older siblings.
Issue is in fairly poor condition, but considering how much it was used in over three decades by this former ref, it is still quite readable and useable. The cover has tears and is barely hanging on, but still is. My name and childhood phone number are scrawled on it in blue ink. But hey, that just makes it more authentic, right? Inside there are some underlined text and a few marks, but not too many.
