The Book of Fiends

Students of the arcane have catalogued at least as many different forms of demons as layers of the Abyss itself. Complicating matters, demonkind often exhibit numerous physical variants that nonetheless share a common racial lineage. Few adventurers examining the remains of a vulture-headed vrock and an alluring succubus would conclude that both share a heritage, but indeed both are demons, the largest and most politically dominant group in the Abyss.

Demons are a race of creatures native to chaotic evil-aligned planes. They are ferocity personified and will attack any creature just for the sheer fun of it-even other demons.

Demon Traits: Most demons possess the following traits (unless otherwise noted in a creature's entry).

-Immunity to electricity and poison.

-Resistance to acid 10, cold 10, and fire 10.

-Summon (Sp): Many demons share the ability to summon others of their kind (the success chance and type of demon summoned are noted in each monster description). Demons are often reluctant to use this power until in obvious peril or extreme circumstances.


Except where otherwise noted, demons speak Abyssal, Celestial, and Draconic.
