Dragon Magazine was originally designed to support the roleplaying industry in general and grew into a house organ for TSR.
- It was a periodical that regularly featured Traveller articles.
- The last Dragon Magazine article to feature Traveller content materials was issue 120 in 1987 CE.
- After 1987, many periodicals were increasingly transformed into company magazines only featuring the flagship products of their owners.
- Occasional product reviews still occurred after that date of 1987.
Dragon Magazine featured a number of articles in the early years of Traveller, even publishing them while TSR sci-fi RPG game titles coexisted alongside Trav. The industry later changed.

Dragon magazine was born in 1976, as an outgrowth of the popularity of Dungeons and Dragons.
- Between 1976 and 2002 Dragon was published by TSR, and then by Wizards of the Coast.
- Although Dragon Magazine was originally designed to support the roleplaying industry in general, it has always been primarily a house organ for TSR's (or more recently Wizards of the Coast's) role-playing games with a particular focus on D&D.
- In 2002, Paizo Publishing acquired the rights to publish Dragon under license from Wizards of the Coast.
