Naturally, the Hag Countess’s layer has undergone the most significant changes. If you were fiendush a vacation, what layer would be your first choice to visit? We took the chance to update some 3rd edition devils found in previous sourcebooks, such as the narzugon and spined devil spinagonbringing them in line with the 3.

Schwalband was published in December Tyrants of the Nine Hells is an optional supplemental source book for the 3. He has a number of abilities designed to minimize or interfere with the common abilities used by devils. That picture of the paladin fighting for his life against a group of devils inspired my style of gaming–violent, cruel, and nasty.

Oh, and there’s a new devil that’s made from the awakened flesh of the Hag Countess. This Month’s Dragon Magazine. Since she’s a goddess, and having been discussed at great length in several other sourcebooks, we didn’t spend a lot of time on her.

This was a tricky issue. Devil-Touched is a doorway to gaining new feats that get better with the more devil-touched feats you select. The lords of the nine layers of Hell are listed and described in this chapter.

We slipped in a few divine feats for those clerics and paladins who specialize in fighting devils, and a metamagic feat called Disrupting Spell that reduces the save DC of spells, spell-like abilities, or supernatural abilities–perfect for defusing devilish abilities. A fiencish to Hell is great, but there’s so much you can do with devilkind on the PCs’ home turf. All nine layers are covered. I wouldn’t make that same mistake twice. It may be unwise to study too closely the secrets of Hell, but we’re willing to take those risks!


I tried to streamline the opponents in fiendiwh a way as to make them easier to use, while retaining their fearsome capabilities. Beyond the lords, what does Fiendish Codex II mention of the other denizens: The short answer is yes. Shattered Lands Dark Sun: They don’t wait around waiting for you to come bust down their dungeon doors and take their loot.

You’ll find the archdevils of fodex Nine Hells are rather vigilant in dealing with upstarts and rivals. Any advice for parties making that extreme trek, or for DMs attempting to run such games? Robert Schwalb explains how he became involved with this book: My plan for detailing the Nine Hells was to evolve the existing conception of the setting, not to discard it. When I ran into an element from the past I wasn’t comfortable with, I downplayed it rather than cutting it out entirely.

It doesn’t matter if it’s true or not; it’s true to the baatezu, and their word is law. Chris Perkins pinged me to work on Fiendish Codex Ibut tragically I was swamped with a project for another company, and so I had to take a pass.

The harvester devil fills a necessary hole in diabolical imagery–the classic slick-talking fiend who wants to sign you to a Faustian pact. So far, this has all been about the devils. These allow a caster to infuse the essence of a devil into a mortal, giving him a suite of abilities that replicate or evoke the abilities of the associated fiend.


Maybe it’s because my mother freaked a bit hi mom. We also had room for some new spells too. We focused our attention on the active masters of the Nine Hells. Hellreavers are always good-aligned and often start out in a combat-oriented class such as a barbarianpaladinfighterrangeror even as a cleric or monk. All, naturally, deal with devils in some way or another. Can you tell us something of the nature of Hell as now presented in this book: Every player dreamed of getting their characters powerful enough to take on Asmodeus and survive.

Are these the actual lords, or aspects more suitable for a high-level party to someday meet? Is there any information on those infernal war engines powered by the pain of torture? This time around, we were very clear to make sure everyone knows that the Archdevils presented were all aspects.

The words “true” and “devils” never belong together in the same sentence.

Laws and Robert J. Devils have been among the coolest for me since I got my hands on the 1st edition Monster Manual. If I did my job right, dodex lawful PC will be on their best behavior from here on out, to avoid damnation. Sometimes it’s a map of a whole layer, like Nessus’ surface canyons. So, I cleared my decks for this one.
