1st Edition Versions[edit]

What about the two versions of the 1st Edition Fiend Folio? The first "version" had some extra pages and extra, er, fiends (I guess is what you'd call them....). I don't recall all the details, but I do remember that it was a VERY limited printing, and these rare books are much in demand by collectors and players (such as me....).

I just remembered (I think) it was referred to as the "144-page Fiend Folio", if that helps any....

Just wonderin'....

Oops - answered my own question - it's the Dieties and Demitwits book I was thinking of....

Awesome. :) BOZ (talk) 19:05, 28 August 2009 (UTC)
Thanks for hitting that first one; I'll try to look at the rest but I've already been going for a while and might need a lengthy break soon. :) BOZ (talk) 01:02, 30 August 2009 (UTC)
Hey wow, I'm mentioned by name on that link to "The Planes". :) BOZ (talk) 01:18, 30 August 2009 (UTC)
Link please. (I may create an article about you if you can find another one). - Peregrine Fisher (talk) (contribs) 02:02, 30 August 2009 (UTC)
LOL! I am seriously not notable. :) BOZ (talk) 02:10, 30 August 2009 (UTC)

Heh - yeah, not really. :) If getting 7 or 8 articles published in Dragon makes one notable, then there are about to be a whole lot more articles around here. ;) BOZ (talk) 02:16, 30 August 2009 (UTC)
That's cool. I didn't know you worked in the industry. Are you Bart Carroll, Steve Winter, or someone else mentioned on that page? - Peregrine Fisher (talk) (contribs) 10:23, 30 August 2009 (UTC)
Momentarily I did some freelance for Dragon and a couple d20 publishers, yeah. :) Probably made less than $2000 all told, but it was a lot of fun. ;) Neither of those names are me; Steve Winter has his own page, and I'm definitely not him. Think about this screen name and compare it to the names you see there and you'll figure it out. :) BOZ (talk) 13:12, 30 August 2009 (UTC)

Stuff removed from article[edit]

I'm working on this article, perhaps to take it up to GA, but at least to improve it as best I can. While I'm sure much of the below stuff is true, there is currently no source provided for any of it. If you know of a source, please feel free to add the information back in with a citation to said source.

  • Public reaction to the Fiend Folio was mixed, at best, with many gamers criticizing the new monsters as strange or useless. (The flumph is often mentioned as both.)
  • Decades after the book's publication, D&D players continue to debate the book's merits (i.e. [2], [3], [4]).

(OK, well, yeah, that second one comes with its own sources, but we can't generally use forum posts as reliable sources.) BOZ (talk) 22:42, 28 August 2009 (UTC)
