Description Edit | History

From front cover:
Tome of creatures malevolent and benign

From back cover:
This tome contains alphabetical listings of monsters designed for use with the Advanced Dungeons & Dragons game system. Each creature is described and most are illustrated for easy identification.

For example:

BERBALANG

FREQUENCY: Very rare

NO. APPEARING: 1
SPECIAL DEFENSES: Nil
ARMOUR CLASS: 6
MAGIC RESISTANCE:
MOVE: 6"/24"
Standard
HIT DICE: 1+1
INTELLIGENCE: Very
% IN LAIR: See below
ALIGNMENT: Chaotic Evil
TREASURE TYPE: D
SIZE: M
NO. OF ATTACKS: 3
PSIONIC ABILITY: Nil
DAMAGE/ATTACK:
Attack/Defense Modes: Nil
1-4/1-4/1-6
LEVEL/X.P. VALUE:
SPECIAL ATTACKS: Nil
III/65 + 2 per hit point

The berbalang spends the greater part of each month in an apparently dormant state, hibernating preferably in a well-hidden cave. Though seemingly comatose, the berbalang is actually roaming the Astral Plane where it spends its time hunting creatures weaker than itself...

Using the new encounter tables contained herein, this work is sure to add new excitement to any AD&D game.

More Information Edit | History

Many of the monsters in the Fiend Folio were created by people who sent ideas into the UK magazine White Dwarf for the column Fiend Factory. A small fraction of these were published in the magazine, but many more were not published. From these new monsters (including a few from TSR), the Fiend Folio was created.

(See the Foreword in the Fiend Folio for more info)
