Endday, part five

Let’s talk Demons. And my, what a lot of them there are – but only if you pull in sources other than just the first Monster Manual. That erstwhile tome only contains a mere smattering in the entry for Demons – a bite-size morsel, as it were – but add in the critters from Manual of the Planes and Monster Manual II (or, as we like to call it “The Demon Book”) and the list grows from tiny to a pretty impressive size in no time at all. Insert innuendo here.

There’s a demon in da bathroom what ya gonna do?

In fact here’s the list, ordered by Level. As you can see it covers the entire range from the lowliest Dretch to the mighty Balor – a full spread of critters just ripe for use in my Endday campaign. And I plan to use each and every one of ’em. Oh yeah.

Marilith    24    Elite Skirmisher    MMI
Abyssal Rotfiend    26    Controller    MMII
Balor    27    Elite Brute    MMI

Demons are, by nature, chaotic brutes and that’s well represented by the fact that the Brute is far and away the most common monster type, though every type is covered. Precious few Minions though, but thankfully it’s a doddle to Minionize any monster. Dretch, I’m looking at you.

Which brings me to what we’ll look at next time: Building Demonic encounters among modern day locations!
