Gaze into the Abyss!

Spawned from the darkest depths of the Abyss, the howling hordes of demonkind rise up to destroy and devour all of existence, their slavering, fiendish forms built to rend, enslave, and beguile. Whether in their horrid domains of madness in the Outer Rifts, or called forth into the material world by insane spellcasters, demons represent the fundamental immorality of the universe, evolving from sinful souls into entities both wretched and godlike, united under their vile taskmasters toward a single goal: to destroy all that mortal life holds dear.

    Lords of Chaos is a 64-page book that includes:
  • Complete descriptions of more than 40 demon lords and their terrifying realms, including the demon queen Lamashtu, Mother of Monsters.
  • New rules and special abilities for worshipers of individual demon lords.
  • Rules for the demoniac prestige class.
  • A detailed history of the Abyss and the disturbing origins of demons as a race.
  • New demonic spells and magic items, plus rules for demonic implants and becoming a demon.
  • Overviews of the different types of demons, plus tricks to aid in their summoning.
  • Descriptions of the Abyss's other residents, such as writhing soul larvae and the sinister, primordial qlippoth.
  • Rules for creating new nascent demon lords.
  • Statistics for four new demons ready to bring the horrors of the cosmos to players’ doorsteps.

Lords of Chaos is intended for use with the Pathfinder Roleplaying Game and Pathfinder campaign setting, but can easily be used in any fantasy game setting. While Lords of Chaos is a standalone product, it also serves as a companion to Book of the Damned—Volume 1: Princes of Darkness, which details the legions of Hell.

Everyman Product Reviews: Book of the Damned


Final Score & Thoughts
Crunch: 5/5 Stars
Flavor: 5/5 Stars
Texture: 4.5/5 Stars
Final Score: 14.5/5 Stars, or 4.75 Stars/5, rounded up for its flavor.

Individually, the three volumes of the Book of the Damned are amazing, excellent reads. The fact that the series managed to hold the same level of quality throughout several years of printing and a slew of authors is a testament to Paizo’s mastery over the evil realms. These planes are ripe for use in adventures of all sorts, and I am pleased to have such a thorough, encompassing guide on the topic. I would highly recommend all three volumes to any GM’s toolbox: they will meet your needs and exceed them a hundred times over.

For the full review, head to the Everyman Gaming blog.

(Note: This review is for all three volumes of the Book of the Damned combined. Not that it matters much; this score applies to all three books equally.)

A glimpse into the Abyss, and not just Noticula's!


While many individuals have expectations of finding their favorite demons from earlier editions of the World's Most Popular Role-Playing Game, the realists among us know for fact that the unyielding forces of Litigation and Intellectual Property Rights forbid certain known names from making their appearance. Certainly, to some, this is a disappointment and a detraction from what they might think is otherwise a pretty enjoyable product.

What those individuals forget is that, for one thing, this book does not render prior tomes about such beings obsolete - they can keep those named individuals in their own games. This tome focuses, as it should, on numerous fiends and entities from the Abyss that impact and influence Golarion, as well as how they might interact on the countless worlds across the Multiverse. On this premise, the book exceeds all expectations; details and insights into the workings of the demons, how to best summon them, items that have Abyssal origins, what was lurking in the far corners of the Abyss before there were even such a thing as demons - all this, and delicious details about everyone's favorite Mother of Monsters, within a easy on the eyes package filled with goodies for your villains...and maybe a villain protagonist or three.

Oh, and of course, the cover-girl (and her sinful relations with her brother, among others). Can't forget that, now, can we?

Damned Well Done.

Demons; you need a score card or a guide book to keep them straight. Well here you go. A great suppliment about one of the most Iconic of threats in the game. Check my full review: Lords of Chaos

Demons! :)


I love the flavour of the infernal realms in Pathfinder. They show a bit less restraint than older 3E infernal books and while a bit more vaugue (due to lack of space of this format probably) it offers a good idea about the way the Abbys works and thinks and thus sends the imagination on the path of destruction, which is really al we need. In hindsight I commend Paizo's decision not to stat superpowerful planar entities. We have High CR balors and other such horrors to present their will and displeasure to the players.

I must resist the urge to use the Seraptis demon untill my players have at least a slim chance of winning.

Wow! I really needed this book.


I love books about any of the planar realms and societies and this book does not disappoint. I have already been inspired by this book several times to create stories and threats in my campaign and I know I will come up with even more from this book as I seem to come up with something every time I read it. I thoroughly enjoy this book and wholeheartedly look forward to Vol. 3.
