Paizo Publishing, LLC
The Dragon Compendium collects the most popular classic articles from throughout Dragon magazine's 29-year history, all updated to the 3.5 edition of the Dungeons & Dragons rules. Selected with the input of current and former editors-in-chief and D&D fans across the world, the articles in this 256-page volume are proven favorites—material you will want to reference again and again.
Packed with new races, classes and prestige classes, equipment, and spells as well as popular feature articles from the past, the Dragon Compendium is a useful game aid as well as a living record of the world's premiere gaming magazine.
The Dragon Compenduim is full of unique and effective options for players and DMs alike. Filled with feats, monsters, class options and equipment, this book brings a lot to a gaming table... which is what it should be.
I know that there a quite a few people out there that wanted to get their hands on a book chock-full of classic disscussions on lore and famous characters, and while the name and tagline could lead you to suspect that was what you were getting, Dragon Magazine was decidedly more than that; it was a tool to improve the gaming experience.
And as a tool, The Dragon Compendium come through. It takes some of the more unique ideas presented in the magazine and updates them in order to make them more accessible to a modern gaming troupe. As a player and a DM, I highly recommend this book.
