Theres one question that I've been mulling over for a couple days now. I've been thinking about the position of Asmodeus in the whole dynamic of good vs evil. Whats mostly been in the back of my mind are the Hellknights, a Lawful Evil organization.
The Hellknights, who model themselves after the armies of the nine hells are one of the most effective (if brutal) police forces in the inner sea region, they throw down no matter the threat but still apply the law evenly to the mortal races no matter their alignment. Which is more than can be said for a number of paladins I've played with who use Detect Evil as a writ of execution.
How does Asmodeus see himself in the grand scheme of things? Is he really the prince of lies trying to claim all the realms for himself? Is he the Final Judge and Jury, holding the threat of his Devil Hordes above the heads of the other gods should they decide to cross the line? Or is he something else entirely?
