Default Old Dragon Magazine Articles

Found some interesting stuff using internet search magic:
41-had four Melee variant articles
32-had a page of new spells
33-had a short review of Wizard

Not much else there.
Anyone know if there were any articles in White Dwarf or Challenge magazine?

I don't recall ever seeing anything in White Dwarf and I had issues from mid teens up to '70s when it got all Warhammered.

If you enjoy magazine articles, then you need the Companion book.

I was reading through it and thought, I wonder what I can find in that Dragon Magazine archive? The Companion is wonderful!

The companion is great; I also own all 8 editions of Interplay, which has a lot of stuff, and dragon #41. The old zine materials are highly variable in quality (that's the polite version...), but you can mine it for a few gems.

There was a review of Grailquest in No. 45. Interesting thing about The Dragon No. 32 and the article on Wizard spells ("Spells for a Very Smart Wizard", IIRC, by Brian McMilan) , the content is identical or nearly enough so to an article on new spells in Interplay No.1 ("Advanced Wizards - A Few More Spells" by David Doucette) - that the latter appears to have plagiarized the former. At least that was my recollection when looking over the articles, since they seemed to have roughly the same material, but I really do need to do a side by side comparison. At the least some of the spells in the Interplay article appear to have been reworked to fit into Advanced Wizard better.

Not familiar with Challenge but White Dwarf had a review of Melee in No. 4 - that is the only TFT related item I'm aware of in that publication.

Ares No. 10 had a review of Lords of Underearth.

Alarums and Excursions has several variants in at least issues 65, 66, 68, 69, 70, 71, 80, 81. There are probably many more, but I only have a handful of the hundreds of issues out there, and they are very hard to search through.

Yes, the Interplay #1 article was an intentional plagarism. There are enough changes in wording to make it clear that the author was trying to stay within the letter of the law, but the details and even some of the phrases are such close matches with the Dragon article that it is obvious what was going on.

Great! We may have enough content for a second volume in the future.
