|Dungeons & Dragons Supplement III: Eldritch Wizardry|
|Author(s)||Gary Gygax and Brian Blume|
Eldritch Wizardry is a supplementary rulebook by Gary Gygax and Brian Blume, written for the original edition of the Dungeons & Dragons (D&D) fantasy role-playing game, which included a number of significant additions to the core game. Its product designation is TSR 2005.
Eldritch Wizardry introduced psionics and the druid character class. The sixty page supplement added several other new concepts to the D&D game, including demons (and their lords Orcus and Demogorgon), psionics-using monsters (such as mind flayers), and artifacts (including the Rod of Seven Parts and the Axe of the Dwarvish Lords).
Publication history 
It bears the designation Supplement III, following the Greyhawk and Blackmoor supplements, which were released the previous year, and its product number was TSR 2005. Illustrations were provided by David C. Sutherland III, Tracy Lesch, and Gary Kwapisz, with a cover by Deborah Larson. The booklet was edited by Tim Kask.
Lawrence Schick, in his 1991 book Heroic Worlds, refers to the psionics rules as "The Rules Guaranteed to Destroy Your Campaign". Schick also comments on the book's cover: "You can bet TSR wishes they'd never used that cover painting of a naked woman tied to a sacrificial altar".
