Wow. You have 1st edition and 3rd edition. 2nd is the best, but here is my advice/ Play 1st edition, but use the TMR system from 3rd instead of the AP system from first. And steal the extra magic colleges from 3rd.

@John, I MAY have a 2nd edition packed away on a high shelf. It was in softcover format, with the art from the box with a white background. I just can't find it now ;)
Nice purchase! You already know how much I like Dragonquest! Enjoy the exploration of the game.
This is the game I liked the most and still haven't played. I own three copies of the 2nd ed. and one of the 3rd ed.I'm nuts.
