Dungeon and Dragon magazines have been around for quite a while, though I can't find an online source to tell when they made the switch to the 3.5 ruleset. Does anyone know?

Issue #364 of Dragon, and #155 of Dungeon were the breakpoints to 4e (when Wizards took over again), but where's the start point for the 3.5e era?


If you really mean 3.5e and not 3e, Dragon #309 (War, Incursion) from July 2003 was the first D&D 3.5 issue. For Dungeon it was centennial issue #100, starring the dragon Flame and also the Incursion mini-plotline.

  • \$\begingroup\$ I was going to say 310-312 because I remembered that they were the Update Issues, but I think you're correct, since the character conversion article was in 309. \$\endgroup\$ – lorimer Jun 11 '12 at 14:19
  • \$\begingroup\$ That's correct, 310-312 dwelled on the new 3.5e changes but 309 was the actual cutover. (You can see on the cover pic at the link above it calls itself "First issue D&D 3.5".) \$\endgroup\$ – mxyzplk Jun 11 '12 at 23:44
