Greenwood’s Dragon Contributions (Partial List)

Because the Pen & Paper RPG Database entry for Ed Greenwood is incomplete and the search function for the Dragon Magazine Archive isn’t the greatest, I had to do the research for Wednesday’s post the old-fashioned way: re-reading old Dragon magazines. Since there doesn’t appear to be a collected listing of Ed Greenwood’s Dragon articles and contributions available on the web (at least, not one that I found) and I have the information at hand, I thought it might be a nice gesture to list those articles so that later researchers might avoid the painstaking process I endured. Those of you looking to fill any gaps in your Greenwood reading might also find some use for it.

The following list only extends as far as issue #125, as that was the issue that immediately followed the release of the Forgotten Realms boxed set and was at the end of the scope of time covered in Wednesday’s post. Those looking for anything after #125 (September 1987) will have to go it alone. The list is chronological, with article title appearing first, followed by the issue number in parentheses.

Quite the impressive list! The guy was nothing if not prolific.

There's a fair number of entries in the rpg.net's index, though I have no idea if they are reliable.

DragonDex is my favorite Dragon Index; it's at http://www.aeolia.net/dragondex/

Roger Moore also compiled a FR index similar to his GH index, and it lists all of Ed's FR articles in Dragon, Dungeon, and Polyhedron (up through when the index was compiled, of course); they're at http://www.wizards.com/forgottenrealms/fr_index2.txt and www.wizards.com/forgottenrealms/fr_index1.rtf

Greenwood wrote the Assasin's Run? That was possibly my favorite DRAGON module ever... I also think it's the only one I ever ran from a DRAGON magazine.
