From cults' secret sanctums to the fortresses of diabolical demigods in Hell itself, the machinations of devils permeate the world of the Pathfinder Roleplaying Game. Explore the unholy minions of Hell in this fell grimoire, which features a dozen specific devils and other infernal influences ready to bring their sinister plots to any gaming table. Each heinous foe is presented with a detailed history, lair, minions, and full statistics, allowing Game Masters to use them as wicked additions to any game or as the centerpiece of intricate plots that form the very core of campaigns of intrigue and treachery. Muster all your courage and explore the pages within to find:

  • Unholy manifestations of powerful devils and deities, allowing the denizens of Hell to exert their will upon the mortal world.
  • A glimpse into the soul-markets of the infernal metropolis of Dis, including the steep prices of the unusual items peddled there.
  • Details of the Hellknights' lethal test of worthiness—one-on-one combat with a summoned devil.
  • Profane particulars on the infamous Book of the Damned, including a self-contained demiplane within the book holding all of its sinister secrets.
  • The exorcism of an innocent child, possessed by a sadistic devil and used as a puppet in an intricate infernal plot of revenge.
  • A march through the fortress of one of Hell's godlike gatekeepers—the infernal duke Furcas.

Pathfinder Campaign Setting: Hell Unleashed is intended for use with the Pathfinder Roleplaying Game and the Pathfinder campaign setting, but can easily be used in any fantasy game setting.

Written by F. Wesley Schneider and Jerome Virnich.

Never make a deal with the Devil

4/5

If you're like me and you adore the Lore of the Pathfinder universe, this book definitely pulls you in and provides details into several small plots that any GM with a mind for it can work into their campaign.

Such delicious tidbits include:

The Cult of Alichino in Ustalav

The Test to become a Hellknight

What happened to the Book of the Damned after it escaped from Heaven?

A Gallery of Damned souls who are all connected to various events in Golarion History, rightfully receiving the punishment they deserve, but all of which hold secrets to vast treasures any Adventuring Party would die for!

All in all, I'm quite pleased with this book, and recommend it.

I would prefer a Devil Revisited to this but I am willing to give it a shot.

Hopefully that will happen as well...

I have been waiting years for a cleaned up version of the Cabal Devils ;)

I don't know if we will...I seem to be remembering somebody w/ Pazio saying the revisited line does not sell well.

I would kill for there to, somewhere in this book, be a picture of an army of devils trying to kill a green-clad fighter ripping them apart bare-handed whose dialog only consists of "RIP AND TEAR!!"

Any references to obscure 1990's video game tie-in comic books will be more subtle than that.

Rip and tear was not all he said. He also demonstrated exquisite perception and analysis. "You are huge, that means you have huge guts."

Personally, I really hope we get more information (Hell forbid, even a statblock?) on that third vampire, a little stud named Ruithvein the Blood Emperor.

But then again, pretty much anything Dragon78 feels is worth skipping is must have material for my bookshelf. Bring on the brimstone.

lOOKS INTERESTING. I just hopes the encounters are not just designed for high level characters.

I wonder if anything in here will be useful for Way of the Wicked.

I just hope the maps of the related sites are better than the ones in "Tombs of Golarion".


Will this book have a Gazetteer on the metropolis of Dis?

It has be said on Paizo Con that one Archdevil is statted in this book.

My money is on Mammon! ;-)

F. Wesley Schneider writes this book AND the first installment of the Hell´s vengeance AP (#103 Hellfire Compact) and he did write an article on Mammon way back (in Book of the Damned i think)...

Mammon would be hard to stat up because of his genius loci nature. Not impossible, though, and it might be useful for the most dedicated Council of Thieves players...

Of the Nine, I would guess either Dispater or Moloch, although I wouldn't mind seeing more of Belial (and vice versa, I suppose). ^_^

This is not Devils Revisited, unfortunately. ^_^

These are specific devils in specific encounter locations - more akin to the recent Undead Unleashed.

Agreed. Very nice cover (and a book I'm looking forward to a lot also).


This looks wonderful! And I love the cover. Will we ever see Titivilus in Pathfinder?


"Unholy manifestations of powerful devils and deities, allowing the denizens of Hell to exert their will upon the mortal world."

I wonder what that means.

What, are there going to be avatars of Asmodeus and all the archdevils!?

I hope so, we really are in need of divine avatar/manifestation/whatever rules.

Really incredible picture in high def with no marking on it!!!


Is this book theme gonna be tied with the upcoming adventure path Hell's Rebels?


Am I the only one who's excited to see what they have planned for Furcas? As far as we know, he's a "knight" who has power over fire and herbalism. I'm interested to see how he's portrayed.

Oooh! I didn't realize they'd revealed the big devil. Also super excited for this. ^_^

EDIT: Actually, some sort of herb witch just came out in Heroes of the Wild. Might be a future character concept...


Great looking cover!!!

Not directly. The book has a lot of supplementary Hell-themed encounters you could use as side quests or the like in ANY campaign, Hell's Rebels and Hell's Vengeance included, but there are no direct ties.

Furthermore, knowing that we'd be doing two APs worth of content in Cheliax, we specifically chose locations on Golarion other than Cheliax for this book, since it's not the only place where devils and devil worshipers appear in the Inner Sea. That said, in all but a few cases, a GM could quickly and easily adapt the encounters within to take place anywhere, as they're designed to be self-supporting and modular.

Whats the chapter opening art like is it art featuring iconics or more generic openings?


Excellent. I am certain that a number of my regular clients will be included in this editorials' contents. While they are typically very reclusive, I think allowing the limelight to shine on themselves a bit more will be good for them. Lady knows they they are all wonderful enough souls as it is!

The book largely follows the format of past "Unleashed" book. There is only one illo featuring an iconic (the best iconic) in the whole book.

He's got a line in Inner Sea Gods. It's not much, but it's something.

I just talked about this book a bit on my personal site—mostly teasers (if you're into that sort of thing).

We've got a more in-depth preview planned for the blog closer to this product's release.


If this whole "Fortress of Furcas" article is well-written and Furcas' stats are strong enough I may make him the villain of a level-20 one shot. :)

Ah...one of the things I liked about the Revisited series was seeing the iconics getting killed at the start of each chapter.

Okay -- for anyone who has that PDF -- did the section describing the Hellknight test have any surprises?


Also, could someone share the details of the Furcas article? What's his challenge rating and appearance?


Any new game material like feats or spells or any new monsters?

Nothing unexpected, I feel. It did offer a list of higher CR creatures to challenge higher level characters.

Axial wrote:

It details his stats, his artifact weapon named Avernus Claw, his fortress with a detailed map, and his cult.

Furcas is a CR 27 Infernal Duke. He appears as a centaur with a body made of hardened vines and a laurel crown.

Barachiel Shina wrote:

No new feats or spells that I'm aware of. There are rules for manifestations, which are like divine haunts. However, they are not necessarily evil, as manifestations can be that of good or neutral gods.

In terms of monsters, most of them are unique stats of existing creatures, such as a unique imp or an advanced pit fiend. Along with Furcas mentioned above, there is the Voice of the Damned, protector of what lies within the Book of the Damned. There is also a new giant worm with planar portals in its gullet called the hellmouth. It lacks stats, but is listed as being at least CR 24. I tried to stat one up myself. If you're interested, it's located here.
