Some of DQ files are now in my gaming folder online, which is shared to members of our gaming group. If someone is needing/wanting access to my DQ gaming files and isn’t on the current permissions for it, drop me a note so I can add you.

Some of these are from the Yahoo dqn-list · DragonQuest Newsletter List group out of NZ that has been running DQ for a very long time (20+ years, I think…)

Should your interest include Sci-Fi RPGs, check out SPI’s “Universe” RPG.

DragonQuest appeared in four editions: first edition and second edition published by SPI, a revised second edition in conjunction with Bantam Books, and a third edition published by TSR when they acquired SPI.

As of 2006, the game belongs to Wizards of the Coast, a wholly owned subsidiary of Hasbro, through acquisition of TSR.

The DragonQuest trademark prevented the Dragon Quest video game series from being published in North America under that title. In 2003, Square Enix registered the Dragon Quest trademark in the US. This trademark abandonment by Wizards of the Coast indicates that they have no interest in future DragonQuest publications, possibly reflecting a change on the part of TSR/Wizards of the Coast from their letter of 12 Dec 1996 indicating they wished to retain copyright “for the indefinite future.”

About Weregamer

"Weregaming: a term Ashleigh created circa 1976 when the gaming group at the Defense Language Institute was looking for a name for their unofficial organization. There was already a wargaming group, who focused on SPI's games such as War in Europe, War in the East, War in the West, and War in the Pacific (among many others, but you can grasp the concept). As "our" group focused on the newly emerging Role-Play Gaming, epitomized by TSR's Dungeons & Dragons, I called the bunch were-gamers. Clever pun, yes? No? Ah, well."
