The Fiend Folio

Per this tweet, today seems to be a good candidate for celebrating the release of D&D, so I'm marking the 49th anniversary of its release.

Alas, I'm not playing much lately, due to a combination of several factors, chiefly being busy with work and too exhausted to have much of a social life on weekends. But I'm planning something for next year, the last Sunday of January, where I hope to have a game going.


This is the really deadly (and really ugly) #Grell, another LJN-made D&D monster bendable #toy which likely got little to no respect in the early 1980s.

There’s a lot going for it. Brains, tentacles, and … a beak. The Fiend Folio creature has these features, but the accompanying illustration is better than the effect here, which is sort of brains-on-a-cracker with green extremities.
