Classification Canon

"The Wizards Three" was a series of Dragon articles by Ed Greenwood. The articles featured a trio of wizards (usually Mordenkainen, Elminster of Toril and Dalamar of Krynn) who met on a mostly harmless alternate Oerth known as Earth in the dining room of author Ed Greenwood. There, they feasted (at Greenwood's expense) and swapped magical lore, which Greenwood would secretly record and use as fodder for articles in the magazine Dragon, after translating the spells into game terms.

Publishing history

The series began in Dragon #185 (1992), with only Mordenkainen and Elminster. Dalamar first appeared in Dragon #188, December 1992, and the series appeared sporadically throughout the later publishing history of the magazine. In later installments, Dalamar was replaced with a young apprentice of Mordenkainen's, Rautheene. Greenwood would conclude the series by bringing back Dalamar for a final installment in Dragon #359, the final print issue of the magazine.
