Abandon All Hope!

As long as mortals have feared what awaits them after death, the threat of damnation has loomed. Powerful fiendish lords rule the deepest, darkest reaches of the Great Beyond: archdevils, demon lords, the Horsemen of the Apocalypse, and more. Such is the power of their evil that even angels cannot resist it—when one servant of Heaven cataloged all the evil in existence in the Book of the Damned, Heaven's judges doomed him to exile, appalled at what he had wrought. And now you hold those horrors in your hands!

Pathfinder RPG Book of the Damned explores the evil planes and their fiendish rulers as they exist in the Pathfinder Roleplaying Game. This imaginative tabletop game builds upon more than 10 years of system development and an open playtest featuring more than 50,000 gamers to create a cutting-edge RPG experience that brings the all-time best-selling set of fantasy rules into a new era.

Pathfinder RPG Book of the Damned includes:

  • Descriptions for dozens of archdevils, demon lords, Horsemen of the Apocalypse, and other fiendish divinities, including the foul boons they grant to their most devoted followers.
  • Explorations of otherworldly fiendish realms, including the infernal reaches of Hell, the death-haunted expanses of Abaddon, and the nightmare depths of the Abyss.
  • Several brand-new monsters to fill out the ranks of all 11 of the fiendish races, from sinister classics such as demons and devils to new favorites like asuras and sahkils.
  • New blasphemous rituals, magic items, powerful artifacts, and spells to arm your villains with or for heroes to discover and defy.
  • Three fiend-focused prestige classes, ready to vex and terrify adventurers who dare stand against their plots.
  • An extensive collection of in-world excerpts from the sinister pages of the Book of the Damned itself.
  • ... and much, much more!

ISBN-13: 978-1-60125-970-7

Content Advisory
Pathfinder Roleplaying Game: Book of the Damned deals with many dark and intense concepts. The topic of demons and devils is not for everyone, nor is exploration of the themes these fiends embody and the practices they demand of their worshipers. You should make sure that your game group is comfortable with the contents of this book before using them in play—if even one player is uncomfortable with including some of the concepts in here, you should set those portions of the book (or the entire book) aside and focus on other plots for your game. Buyers should beware that the content of this book is not appropriate for all ages, and parents especially are encouraged to review the book before buying it.

Five Evil Stars for a Five Star Evil Book!

5/5

Paizo's Book of the Damned does the nigh unthinkable in the increasingly politically correct gaming industry, in that it is filled with truly evil beings that commit hideous and offensive acts upon the universe. This book collects the best selling Book of the Damned series from Paizo and adds new parts here and there. If you have the previous books, it is still worth getting this for the new material, but your mileage may vary.

I absolutely love how much this book triggers people! I'd expect nothing less from a product called "Book of the Damned." The art is absolutely gorgeous, the lore is evocative and the evil contained within will help you unleash the hordes of heck on your unsuspecting players - and they'll thank you for it.

It's sold out now, so if you see a copy somewhere, snatch it up! This will be a much sought after collector's item for years to come.

Thank you for treating your customers like adults, Paizo. Every toolbox needs evil toys and this book helps fit that bill!


crappy overall

2/5

first 2chapters are horrid, the art is garbage. Last 3 chapters steadily grow better. I'd write more and have, but this stupid program keeps deleting my reviews! Therefore, PM me if you really want to know.


Mostly flavor for DMs, little use to players

1/5

I would not recommend this book to anyone except DMs who wanted a lot of deep flavor text on evil gods, evil planes and evil outsiders. The vast bulk of material is stuff that the DM can read in order to form a more coherent world view inside his head, but much of the material is such that it is not only useless to players mechanically, but even further, it is even difficult to convey to players flavor-wise.

Of the 280+ pages, about 120 (so almost half the book) is spent on detailing evil gods that were too small to receive full writeups in previous products. Gods like Baphomet, Dispater, Kostchtchie, Lamashtu, Mephistopheles, Moloch, Nocticula, Orcus, Pazuzu and Szuriel receive two-page writeups -- about 50 in total, covering about 100 pages. The other 20 pages in this section offer two-page writeups for 10 groupings like "Asura Ranas" and "Daemon Harbringers", giving brief detail to groupings gods even smaller than those who merited full two-pagers per individual. This section is essentially useless to players, but the DM can make some use of it for players by building cults that worship these guys and positioning them as enemies that have some of their background fleshed out thanks to this book. Having said that, spending almost half the book to detail the obscure gods of the guys who are going to be sword fodder for the players in three combat rounds? I think a hardcover slot could have been used for something much more useful.

The next 40 pages cover evil planes like Hell and Abyss. This, I think, is one of the more useful sections in the book, because at higher levels, players and campaigns are often going to be venturing into these environments, so getting more detail on them is very good stuff, and the DM can really use this as very concrete setting material for adventures. I actually wish that the art budget from the entire first section had been put into this section, because getting lots of cool images to use as visual aids to show players when they venture into a plane would have been extremely useful to me as a DM. Unfortunately, this is the smallest of the book's four sections, showing a big disconnect between what Paizo thinks we need and what I feel I need.

The third section is essentially the crunch section. Feats, domains, magic items, prestige classes and stuff like that. 95% of it is useless to players, and essentially exists just for the DM to build bad guy statblocks that the players are never going to see. There's a few occasional things that the players can use, like the Moon and Rivers subdomains, but by and large this section is useless unless you are the sort of DM who gets enjoyment out of building statblocks for your bad guys.

The fourth section is called a bestiary, but don't think it's like the Bestiary books simply presenting statblocks -- it has that too, but only about 14 of its 40 pages are statblocks for new monsters. The larger part of this section is flavor descriptions going over existing outsiders (like six pages for devils, six pages for daemons and six pages for demons) and giving them more flavor than existed previously. It's...not useless, I suppose. Some of the evil outsider flavor can be useful for DMs to flesh out encounters between evil outsiders and players. I guess this would be my second favorite section of the book, after the evil planes section.

Finally there's an appendix that presents excerpts from the in-world Book of the Damned in replica-like format as if you were reading the actual book. Kind of neat as a novelty but I didn't feel I got much use out of it.

So essentially there's five sections -- Gods, Planes, Crunch, Bestiary and Excerpts. Gods and Crunch are mostly only useful to build the bad guys of the campaign. Gods is more flavor side, Crunch is more crunch side. But I seriously question the decision to devote over half a hardcover to material that is mostly just useful to build the guys that might be dead in three rounds. My dislike for this decision is a big reason why I only give the book one star. Planes and Bestiary are more useful sections, but they are only about 80 of the book's 280+ pages. Bestiary is about as big as it needed to be -- I don't need any more flavor or statblocks that were presented there, so I wouldn't have wanted to see that section expanded further, but Planes could have and IMO should have been expanded far more. I could have used much, much more detail on the adventuring environments that I as DM could present to players.

Overall I just feel like this book was a big misstep and mis-gauge in what is useful. At least from my personal perspective -- other DMs may disagree. And it's miscategorized -- this book should have been in the DM-focused Campaign Setting line like Inner Sea Gods, to which it is sort of an evil sequel, rather than in the core line where, IMO, books should be more player-useful.

I should add one exception. This book could be really useful and worth its price if you are running an evil campaign. In that case, all the evil gods stuff and evil crunch stuff will actually be player-useful, which rockets the utility of this book upward. If you are running an evil campaign, I would actually consider this a four-star book.


Reprints and Bad Artwork

1/5

The best thing about the new Book of the Damned that can truly be said to be original to it, is the completed list of obediences. The rest of the material consists of reprints from the prior Books of the Damned, or retcons to that material that create new problems. As seems to be the usual case, the demons and the devils take the lion's share of the material, while the daemons, despite theoretically being among the Big Three of the fiendish races, are left to language in comparative obscurity; minor demon lords receive longer write-ups than in prior books, and Asmodeus' Queens of the Night get full write-ups for the first time, but among the deamons the Horsemen and the Horsemen alone receive any attention.

Perhaps the worst thing about the book however, is the artwork. While there are a few good, new pieces, usually marking the spaces between sections, most of the individual portraits of the archfiends are reprints from prior books or stunningly ugly (or in the case of the archdevil portraits from Bestiary 6, both).

I loved the prior Books of the Damned and wanted to like this book. In the end though, what little new material there cannot compensate for the book's faults, and the bad quality art makes it actively cringe-inducing to look on. Save yourself the money and buy something else.

Junji Ito's work is INCREDIBLY influential to both myself (the book's developer) and Wes (the section's writer), so pretty much whenever either of us start doing body horror type stuff... Junji Ito influences are lurking there. That said, there's not a direct influence here. Just a very strong indirect one throughout.

So I'm bit surprised that none of Asura ranas have a pic while all other demigod fiends has at least one pic with daemonic harbingers having two, but I don't really complain since Folca's pic is creepy and Vorasha is surprisingly fluffy. Seriously, her arms and legs look diseased as melodaemons are, but she has really fluffy dog head :D

I did notice that Infernal Duke Eligos doesn't have deity statblock(areas of concern and domains) in the table .-. I guess he was accidentally skipped over, but again not a big deal since Inner Sea Gods has his deity stats. Anyhoo, bit surprised that infernal dukes are apparently CR 26-27 since I thought they were 26-30 but I guess they wanted archdevils be stronger?

Anyhoo, loving the book, only other nitpick(so far from skimming) I have is that I'm kind of missing old Demoniac picture since I'm sucker for faceless look(ya know, face in shadow/robes/mask look) :'D

I sort of regret purchasing this, there's only like 3 pages worth of content I can really use in my games, but I am pretty sure it's my tastes being non-standard rather than being because of the books quality.

So I don't think I should put up a review of it with how biased I am.

New one does better job of getting idea of being possessed by demon across though yeah.

Anyhoo, nice to see that Hell Unleashed book of the damned material was also reprinted, its nice to have all BotD stuff in same book.

I also like that demon/daemon/devil summoning info has been expanded to include all of those fiends from six bestiaries, I guess it doesn't have all of them (since I think AP issues have a lot of misc fiends from each category) but its still great :D

BTW, it does make me wonder if bestiary mentioned devil demigods like are just straight up non canon .-. I guess I could do campaign setting thread to list all demigod outsiders we don't know anything about besides name or deity stats, but I guess also that somebody has already done that and I'd rather not bother people.


It looks like one half of the Sacrifice spell seems either pointless or retcon-y considering you can already get bonuses via sacrifices and can already pay for services through commodities since the CRB.

Is it an error, or is a retcon intended?

I think the Payment option of the spell is to allow people who only have access to planar binding to make offers similar to how planar ally works, that's just me guessing though.

I think Kaikyton would be delighted in corrupting people who are interested in philosophies such as that of the Iridian Fold. But their description suggests nothing akin to her obedience, so I am with Risky on this

Sepsidaemon's picture btw bothers me .-. I think I saw picture of that being summoned by caster in that placeholder art for Monster Summoner's Handbook,(that same pic is in this book too) So wait, does that mean Sepsidaemon looks similar to outsider that was being summoned in that picture, or that Sepsidaemon is based on picture that featured outsider that didn't previously exist?

Spoiler:
It is different, yes. The prerequisites now require that you be Lawful Evil, have the Fiendish Obedience feat, you must have 7 ranks in some skills, etc. Much like other prestige classes, it allows earlier access to your diabolic patron's boons from Fiendish Obedience.

1 person marked this as a favorite.

OMG. Szuriel looks like Diamanda Hagan.


Ahhhh nooooo they nerfed the Diabolist!

Two reasonable nerfs, one that isn't:

1) They've made it impossible to enter before 8th level. Okay, that's reasonable-ish. Previously you could slither in at 6th level if you were willing to pay the middlin' steep price for a scroll. This is more like plugging a loophole than a nerf as such.

2) They require a fiendish obedience now. Ehh, okay. This is more flavorful than a nerf as such. You do get the spells / SLAs. I need to study the available obediences to see how balanced this is. Overall I suspect the net effect will be pretty modest.

3) Now the Diabolist loses a level of casting. Dammit, Paizo. What is it with PrCs and giving up levels of casting? (Yes, you can get it back now by spending two feats. PrCs are already feat-starved, so that's not much consolation.) Presumably this is to make up for getting earlier access to the boons, but this is not remotely balanced; you're getting access to stuff like first or third level spells, in return for delaying access to fifth or seventh level spells.

Seriously, this is irritating. Why can't we have PrCs with full casting? PrCs are already giving a bunch of goodies that the main classes get. Unless you're giving them stuff that's /quite/ good --
as good as two feats or a caster level -- it's really not balanced to do this.

It's still flavorful, and it's still playable. But it's gone from one of Paizo's very best PrCs to... eh, still above average, but nothing special.

Because of the design philosophy that wants to make multiclassing and prestige class options be tough choices rather than no-brainers. We don't want to set things up so that sticking with a single class to 20th level is always a bad choice, and that's a path that 3rd edition D&D went with their prestige classes that we don't want to follow.

Those who want full spellcasting can use the favored prestige class feats I introduced in Paths of the Righteous.

Wait, is there an additional reason I'm missing? ._.

The reason was twofold.

1) I was never a fan of the original art—it seemed too generic and not demon-themed. It felt like that image could have been any cultist, rather than specifically a demon cultist.

2) This was a chance to get one of my PCs illustrated.

In the original Book of the Damned Volume Three, we ordered an illustration of a spellcaster conjuring a daemon. What we got was the art of that green pteranodon-headed daemon being conjured, and due to complications arising from ordering all the art at the same time, that daemon's look ended up being SIGNIFICANTLY different than the look for the phasmadaemon, to the point that the two were entirely different. And so for many years, that piece of art (which we reused as placeholder art, as you noted), wasn't illustrating a monster anyone could use or summon in the game.

Getting specific art for that daemon to support it as an actual monster was something I've been trying to correct ever since. It just took half a decade or so to do it.

I picked my copy up last night. Love it.

I love that all the full Demon Lords finally got full art, and that a lot of the lesser Demigods got worshiper stats (even if they were mostly just a sentence about their realm or appearance). I wish some of them were more fleshed out, but that can always be done in later books/Bestiaries (Probably would not be surprised if we saw some of these Demigods get stats in future bestiaries).

One thing I particularly like is that the Rakshasa immortals don't really care about being demigods, so they all share the same portfolios and domains.

Also, regarding my previous assessment, I could see either Folca or Dachzerul of the Sahkil Tormentors as the Pathfinder Pennywise equivalent.

I also like Mestama's realm. I don't know if this characteristic was present in previous printings, but it seems like a pretty obvious nod to the blair witch project.

That is an interesting thought...who all would you like to see get full stats as monsters in a future bestiary? Since they usually come in threes, hmm...

For daemonic harbingers, I'd like to see Cixyron, Folca, and Zaigasnar.

For infernal dukes, I'd like to see Lorcan, Ruzel, and Zepar.

For oni daimyo, I'd like to see Akuma, Inma, and Onmyuza.

For sahkil tormentors, I'd like to see Charg, Dachzerul, and Velgaas.

Yeah, I think the guys who got artwork in this volume are a shoe in:

Folca
Ruzel
Sugroz
Alichino
Treerazer (Who already has stats in the Inner Sea World Guide, but that's n ever stopped Paizo from reprinting monsters into the main bestiary)
Inma
Yamasoth (Who again, already has stats so that's a no brainer)
and Ravana

Also: I think the Queens of the Night will probably get full stats as well, since they got a lot of focus in this book.

Question: is the Executioner Devil supposed to be coded as trans or hermaphroditic? The write up uses female pronouns and they are heavily associated with Eiseth but the art feels very coded masculine or potentially tran female. I've been mulling this over for a bit now and though I think the art is awesome and potentially raises some interesting questions about gender dynamics in the fires of the Pit I want to pick the brain of the art department and see if this was their intent or was something unintentional.
