The End is Near!

Since the first spark of mortal life took form, the daemons have sought to extinguish it. Evil in its purest form, these terrors seek nothing less than the end of all existence. Led by the Four Horsemen—War, Famine, Pestilence, and Death—the armies of Abaddon work to corrupt, consume, and destroy everything around them. Perfect nihilists, the daemons seek only to be the last entities looking down on the dying cinders of the cosmos before they themselves are consumed, and only darkness remains.

Within this book, you’ll find:

  • Complete descriptions of the Four Horsemen and their armies of soul-devouring daemon servitors.
  • An overview of the wasteland realm of Abaddon, the private domains of its masters, and several other forsaken locations.
  • Rules for the daemon-worshiping souldrinker prestige class.
  • An introduction to the soul economy, and how captured souls are traded and used by fiends and mortals alike.
  • Secret histories of previous Horsemen.
  • New daemonic spells and magic items.
  • Overviews of the different castes of daemons, plus tips and tricks to aid in their summoning.
  • Statistics for eight new daemons ready to bring the horrors of the cosmos to players’ doorsteps.

Horsemen of the Apocalypse is intended for use with the Pathfinder Roleplaying Game and Pathfinder campaign setting, but can easily be used in any fantasy game setting. While Horsemen of the Apocalypse is a standalone product, it also serves as a companion to Princes of Darkness: Book of the Damned, Vol. 1, which details the legions of Hell, and Lords of Chaos: Book of the Damned, Vol. 2, covering the hordes of the Abyss.

Chilling, Terrifying, and Inspiring


The Daemons are a tricky group to work into a campaign. Devils and Demons occupy more understandable types of Evil, but the Daemons are an entirely more sinister force.

This book does a great job exploring the Daemons, providing depth to their existence and plenty of opportunity for them to enter a campaign of 5th level and above.


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.)



I found this book to be the favorite out of the Books of the Damned series. The Horseman, Abaddon and the Daemons are truly evil. No deals, no wants nothing but destruction. The book is well written, holds together nicely and provides enough information to base an entire campaign around the content. Well Done!!!!

The Most Chilling Outsiders Brought To Life


I did not think Paizo could top their book on Devils. I was wrong. Say hello to the most chilling outsiders you could ever hope not to meet.

Born of the spirits of nihilism, murder, misanthropy and self-loathing, Daemons seek one thing: the eventual annihilation of all life, until nothing remains but an empty universe, as dark, cold and empty as their souls. The writing is top-notch and more than a little stomach churning in a couple areas, as one is faced with a cavalcade of new Daemonic adversaries, each more horrendous and than the last, as well as their four psychopathic masters, the Four Horsemen of the Apocalypse. Abbadon is also described in-depth if ever a GM wants to run an adventure through the abode of the dark plane...although that is bordering on TPK territory right there.

I eventually want to run a few homebrews with a "Silent Hill" flavor to them. Daemons are the perfect outsider for the creepy psychological horror vibe, if ever I've seen one.

This is the darkest book of evil outsiders Paizo has released to date. Unlike Devils, there is no redeeming characteristics to the Daemon. At least Devils do not want to end all life. They just want to corrupt and reshape it. Even Demons are not as terrible as Daemons simply by virtue of the fact that they are generally poor planners who backstab and hobble one another's efforts for the sake of being contrary jerks. Daemons are another story entirely: Cold, logical beings whose only joy in life comes from the ending of others' lives. The scary thing is that they are just well-organized enough to pull it off.
