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.

I was kind of hoping for the daemon book, but oh well, I guess that all the tanar'ri lovers out there need some hugs.

And I can't wait to see how it stands up to the Fiendish Codex, both written by the same author :) Shame that James can't recycle his ideas from FC...

I certainly hope so. We've got plans for more than 3 volumes in this series, in fact... so hopefully we'll do a lot more in the series!

But yeah... there will at LEAST be one more book in this line, if all goes according to plan.

I can't recycle ideas... but I can build on them. If this book works as a companion to Fiendish Codex AND to Green Ronin's Book of Fiends... then woo!

At least, daemons will get some love, after Bestiary II! In which they will feature! The big question is... will there be demand for the other smaller races of fiends, or will a few get put in the same book!

I really hope they'll release a variant of this series focusing on celestials. I've had some fun moments using celestials as allies and villains and it'd be great for celestials to get the Paizo treatment.

That said, Lords of Chaos is one of the books of 2010 for me as I'm planning a Mendev/Worldwound campaign. Now we just need a Chronicles book focusing on that region. :D

I hope that a celestials book comes long after ALL of the fiends are covered. While celestials are occasionally antagonistic to pc's, it's not often enough for me to be panting eagerly for a 64 page treatment.

That said, bring on Volume 3: Daemons and Volume 4: Denizens of Shadow (fiends such as Kytons that have taken up residence on the Shadow Plane)!

Hmm. When I saw the title "Lords of Chaos", I was actually hoping it would be about the Proteans and the Maelstrom...

Yeah, that does seem a better fit for the title.

For some reason, I imagine getting him to write the book would be easy.

Getting him to write only a books worth of content. That would be harder.

Aye, I was thinking along those lines. It's not something I just have to have in my hands as soon as possible. I can wait until the more obvious villains have had their moment in the spotlight. Just that it'd be interesting to see it get the Paizo treatment. :)

*grin* You're probably right ;)

But enough threadjacking, more talk about demon-boy Jacobs and his book :)


Fiendish Codex I was the best 3e product, I expect something that great.

Can't wait for the daemon book by Todd as well.

See Paizo, now you just need a mockup cover and we can start pre-ordering Todd's Daemon book. No need to even debate on the idea ! ;)

Just photoshop his picture and the words "Todd's Daemons Book (working title)". Best seller. :)

Here's the outline:

Product Name: Matt Daemon Must Die

Page Count: 2 pages.

You hear that, Todd? TWO PAGES!

Easy - tell Todd that he has to turn in a regular 64 pages Chronicles book, while secretly up the count to 256 at the printer. This way, you will have to cut just 44 pages ! ;)

I'll still have to develop 256 pages tho. :/

G, I think he's saying the theory would fit...just the theory, nothing else. But I think I would actually buy 96 pages of Todd's theories.

Plenty!

Asuras (evil outsiders that rise from the mistakes of the gods)
Daemons (physical manifestations of death)
Demodands (perhaps the mercenaries of chaos and evil or something like that)
Demons (the result of sinful mortal souls exposed to the raw nature of the Abyss)
Devils (fallen angels and heretics of faith)
Divs (corrupted genies)
Kytons (shadow-plane dwelling masochists who have been infused with some strange outer evil)
Oni (evil spirits bound into the flesh of a humanoid form)
Qlippoth (the original evil outsider race, perhaps the first source of evil)
Rakshasas (fiends who have abandoned links to the gods and the outer planes in order to try to rule the Material Plane)

Now, there'll certainly be some crossover here and there (expect to see a fair amount of talk about qlippoth and maybe a little about demodands in Lords of Chaos), but I could certainly see a book about all ten of these fiend races eventually!

So just to make sure that we are all on the same page...Book 3 is 256 pages with Todd writing, Sean is the developer, and the under/over on the manuscript is 300 pages....excellent! ;)

PS...I will take the over...

PPS...James - Looking forward to book 2! Book 1 was excellent.

Makes me wonder if Sean didn't have something to do with a certain bite attack aimed at one of your fingers, now...

Nothing is wrong with Republicans, after Helmet is forcibly removed from the elder demons influence, the Republican Movement can proceed without the horrid plans for runechildren in Ptolus as scheduled.
