What's the story behind the name "Antiriad"? In the game, barbarian hero Tal searches for a prized artifact, a radiation suit. On one of artist Dan Malone's sketches, this suit had »ANTI-RAD« printed on the front. However, there's a small tear between the letter R and A so that it looks like »ANTI-RIAD«. The term stuck.
