Dragon Warriors is a fantasy role playing game system written by Dave Morris and Oliver Johnson and published by Corgi Books between the years 1985 and 1986. In 2009 it was re-collected in a new hardcover edition by Mongoose Publishing. This print run included the publication of several supplements to the Dragon Warrior's world "Legend", but as of September 2010 this publication run has been discontinued, the books continue to remain available in pdf format and the current publisher, Serpent King Games, has Print On Demand availability planned for all the new books.
Unlike most RPGs which were (and are) primarily presented as box sets or large hardback or softback books, Dragon Warriors consisted of six paperback books of ordinary size. This innovation may have contributed to its demise as the books superficially appeared to be some sort of gamebook rather than a full-fledged role playing system.
Aside from its publishing format Dragon Warriors was chiefly notable for having a game system which was quick to use and easy to learn whilst retaining enough flexibility and realism to satisfy role playing aficionados.
Dragon Warriors is set in the world of Legend, the same as that of the Blood Sword game books.
Magnum Opus Press announced that Mongoose Publishing would publish a new edition in October 2008. This has now arrived in hardback, and is essentially the previous books collated into one, without the incremental rules. It contains new artwork, some revised material and better organisation.
As of April 2011, Serpent King Games is the owner of Dragon Warriors, and has re-published updated versions of the Mongoose books which are available on DriveThruRPG.com .
