Dragons Past (1979-1995)

Dragons Past has been used as the title in three different article series by Greg Stafford:

  • Dragons Past was Greg Stafford’s section of the APA press The Wyld Hunt. The 10 issues contained notes, comments to letters, and background and stories from his personal RuneQuest Campaign. Parts of these issues have been republished.
  • Dragons Past was a section of Wyrms Footprints, often containing parts the above Dragons Past, but also including new or supplemental material.
  • There is also an unrelated article called Dragon’s Past 1, Gloranthan Military Experience in Different Worlds #28 (1983).
