Lords of Sin

Demons have plagued heroes since the dawn of time. They are legion, as varied as the countless mortal sins that give them birth, and ever eager for new opportunities to destroy the works of humanity. Yet despite the danger, arrogant mortals remain fascinated by demons, and may be the key by which these fiends shall inherit the world!

Demons Revisited presents 10 of the game’s most notorious demons, providing details on the sins that spawn each type, what roles they play on the Abyss, and what particular devastations they prefer to wreak on the mortal realm, given the chance. In addition, each chapter presents a list of unique demons drawn from the Pathfinder campaign setting, along with a full stat block for some of the most powerful demons of their kind.

Inside this book, you’ll find:

  • Balors, the greatest of the demon races and rulers of their own Abyssal realms.
  • Invidiaks, known also as shadow demons—fiends of envy who exist only to possess the bodies of the living.
  • Mariliths, demonic multi-armed generals born from the souls of the most arrogant and proud evil souls.
  • Succubi, beautiful but deadly seductresses who use charm, subtlety, and mind-control to achieve power.
  • Vrocks, bestial and foul avian demons born of wrath and hate.
  • Five other demon types: the slime-dripping babaus, the honey-tongued glabrezus, the toad-like hezrous, the gluttonous nabasus, and the greed-spawned nalfeshnees.
Demons Revisited is intended for use with the Pathfinder Roleplaying Game and Pathfinder campaign setting, but can easily be used in any fantasy game setting.

Great book!

5/5

Read my full review on Of Dice and Pen.

Demons are popular antagonists in many Pathfinder games (not to mention numerous other roleplaying games as well). While they are in the limelight at the moment in many recent products, they have always shown up with regularity in Pathfinder products and adventures. Demons Revisited by James Jacobs is another of the recent books focusing heavily on demons—indeed, in this case, focusing entirely on demons. One of the strengths of this book is that, while it is a great stand-alone product that looks at ten specific demon types in detail, it is also the perfect companion product to several others. Combining them all together provides a huge wealth of information and adventuring opportunities, giving demons a life and “reality” that most other monsters in the game don’t have.


The Best Revisited Book I've Read

5/5

I didn't think this book could top Fey Revisited. I was wrong.

Within you will find delicious details on the Abyssal ecology, wrap your brain around the ineffable evil of beings who enjoy the infliction of suffering and chew on some wonderful crunch.

The Half-Fiend templates will add some wonderful variety to the creatures you'll be able sic on PCs and there's some nice Easter eggs for what (I hope) may possibly be future APs. In short, this book was everything I wanted since it was announced, my only complaint is that it's too short!

And there are still sidebars in each chapter that tell how to adjust the half-fiend template to have specific types of half-demons.

The whole dang reason I've been excited for the book. I'd say "the reason I'm going to buy", but as a subscriber, that kind of loses its punch.

Still, August is going to be fun, between this and Mythic and Wrath.

Hmmm...I see six of the seven deadly sins represented. Which demon type represents sloth (or is there one)?

Dark Archive

For sloth, Hezrous perhaps?

Paizo Employee Creative Director

Dretches represent sloth.

Hezrous represent the sin of drug abuse/poisoning of the flesh/pollution.

Wait, more than Imrijka's "Vampire Gore Explosion Punch" from the APG? That sounds bloody.

Paizo Employee Creative Director

Yeah... turns out, demons are bad news. I personally like the Glabrezu image the best... it's kinda subtle but once you realize what's going on... it's super depressing and hard core.

So whats going on in the Glabrezu vs Lini picture anyway?


That may be the most awesome picture of a Demon I have ever seen.

And the fact that it's based off an office game makes me wonder how much it would cost to rent out Paizo staffers as GMs.


Any demon lord or layer "Easter Eggs" hidden in there? I love those...

Sweet Christmas. Invidiak still has the top spot for shock value, but the Glabrezu takes the gold in twisting the knife.

The invidiak half-pager is a representation of an office game. Good times there. The glabrezu art isn't from a specific example, but the sample glabrezu... I can't read because of spoilers.

We're so screwed.

I'd buy that, but then I'd buy Daemons Revisited with templates for half-meladaemons, half-sangudaemons, half-crucidaemons, etc.


I really already dream about Devil and Daemons revised.

Daemons are my favorite monsters, then devils, still the Marilith and Glabrezu demons are my favorites of all, the other demons however lose against Daemons and Devils.

So hup hup Wes Sneijder, we need a devils revised! :-D

So I got the book yesterday and I'm looking over it now, and I get to Galundari and I realize something. He has the usual ability to greater teleport at will with the 50 pound weight limit. Then I get to his equipment and realize that it weighs much more than the limit he can take with him. I think the sample Marilith, Hezrou, and Vrock in the book are also over the limit. I apologize if I'm asking a rules type question in the wrong spot, but was that intentional or am I'm missing something? Is there listed equipment not counted in the weight limit, the rule about them using their teleportation SLA different than I think it is, or do they just leave enough of their equipment behind if they feel they will need to use that ability?

That's something I considered as well... but too late to change anything.

I may be introducing a new feat later in the Wrath of the Righteous AP that helps these demons out, but in the meantime, yeah... if they carry a lot of gear or wear heavy armor, they'll have to leave some of it behind if they teleport. Fortunately, they're pretty powerful anyway and have plenty of methods of replacing lost gear if they're forced to teleport away and leave some of it behind. (They can still use the ability, they just can't take all their stuff with them.)

I also vote for Kytons Unchained.

(we just need a few more to round out ten!)


Devils Revisited? Absolutely WANT! I’m already drooling over the RP potential of a Chelaxian tiefling transitioning to a full-blown half-erinyes form.... }:)

(And just so you know, Mikaze, she’s an NG bard (archaeologist) and devout follower of Sarenrae who’ll probably be multi-classing into cleric (crusader) in her later career.... ;D I’ve got another in the same vein, an Iomedaean who’s my alias in a PbP, but subject to GM approval she might be better served as a half-succubus.... ;) )

Daemon's Revisited would be awesome.


Pathfinder Companion, Rulebook, Starfinder Adventure Path, Starfinder Roleplaying Game Subscriber

Devils Revisited, definitely, especially if you add in specific half-devil templates. I've always loved the slow, methodical, expanding evil. Daemons Revisited, less likely to interest me, in all honesty. The outsider types I'd like to see books for would probably be...asuras, azatas, devils, inevitables, kytons, psychopomps, qlippoths, and rakshasa. Though you could probably sell me on agathions, kami, oni, and qlippoths. Of course, the chance of most of these are probably pretty slim, but still...

I just finished reading the rest of this. Overall I really liked the book. I like the artwork at the beginning of each section. Those poor poor iconics. The only thing I would really want it didn't have is more examples of individual stat blocks of demons that weren't so high in CR. Most of the ones in there would work as the the final BBG at the end of a campaign.

I see. For me it's not a big deal and I was more curious about how it was intended. I was considering houseruling that anything that appears in their stat block is a part of them because of them either carrying it around on themselves long enough or it forming with them when the Abyss created them, and wasn't subject to it the weight restrictions. It would also explain why so many of the same creatures always appear with the same weapons.

I was also thinking about giving them the normal teleport without error without any restrictions once they reach a certain power level. I figure once they reach the level of being an epic or near epic encounter it's not a game breaking for them to have it.

Another problem with it is that it really hurts the ones that are large or bigger. Since the weight limit doesn't scale with their size they will have a harder time carrying items sized for them.

Devils Revisited would be terrific.


Frankly, I LOVED Demons Revisited. If this is the level of quality we can expect from any other "Revisited" books, I say bring 'em on. I'll buy any and all of them.


Are there enough Kytons already to make a revised book?

Chain Kyton, Interlocutor, Augur, Eremite, Ostiarius, Termagant, another one from the AP that I forgot the name from.

That is not enough to make a revised yet, so we really need more kytons!!!

I hope bestiary 4 has some fresh load of those torturing evils.

Devils Revisited! :two thumbs up:


If there came an Devils Revisited book from Paizo, which devils would everybody like to see in there?

I would love to see:
1: Erinyes (just love these fallen angels)
2: Gelugon (cool appearance and I love ice monsters)
3: Zebub (The little anti-cupid in appearance, love the appearance reminds me of the game Doom which has enemies that look like these.)
4: Gylou (The living cage, really love their appearance and behavior.)
5: Immolation Devil/Puragaus (My favorite high-level devil, its really low on info, so I want to learn more)
6: Bdellavritra (The horror! Just awesome! While a new devil this one is already one of my top favorites)
7: Barbazu (Love the beards, love the D&D snake beard even more, but the hooks will do too)
8: Hamatula (One of my favorite devils, love the wolverine claws in the artwork.)
9: Osyluth (I really didn't like this devil that much until I read about its Mythic counterpart that can make your bones move.)
10: Cornugon (because I really want to like this creature, but its still so generic to me... nothing special, so I hope to see something unique coming out of the Cornugon in Devils Revisited.)

I never cared for Pit Fiends, never will but i'm 100% positive one of these spots is for the Pit Fiend...
I rather see Puragaus in there, want to learn more about those. I hope an updated Puragaus would have the ability to make itself explode into a huge fiery explosion, doing little damage to itself but huge damage to the surroundings.
