RFI is back and delving into a little publication put out by TSR UK, called the Fiend Folio. We discuss the history and internal politics of the book, as well as a scathing review of it from Dragon Magazine. And we also talk about all the wonderful and wacky monsters in the book and why it deserves a place on your bookshelf, in this weeks Roll For Initiative.

Thanks Vince.  Keep 'em coming!

FF is an acquired taste, but it has Death Knights, so it is a MANDATORY acquired taste.  :)
Please try my old school computer game (link) and tell me what you think.

I have the Fiend Folio from back in the day, I bought it late as I was replacing my worn-out original AD&D books with the "orange spine" versions, but they never rebound this one. Consequently it stands out on my bookshelf, but it stands out in other ways, being a UK based player we were all familiar with White Dwarf and Imagine, and the content was just as equal to the Monster Manuals, even freed from their Gygaxian yoke.

Great Episode, keep up the good work.

Awesome! Lots go gems in the FF, and lots of crazy stuff that I'd probably never use. But it is a great book that helped make AD&D what it is today.
