    FYI: Although Erik said there is no explanation for the transition of Demon Lords back down from deity status .... there is a note about how Clerics serving the Demon Lords get their spells .. p.88, 2nd paragraph.

    Got my copy today. One of the really nifty bits is in the appendices. If you look, you'll see the names of some of the demon lords Erik created in Armies of the Abyss for Green Ronin.

    Actually, they are all names from page 35 of the first edition Monster Manual 2. I was able to use them in Armies of the Abyss because all of them draw their names from real world mythology. If you want to use the Armies of the Abyss versions in your campaign that's sweet, but I must emphasize that that material is not official Dungeons & Dragons and is the intellectual property of Green Ronin. The similarity in names is coincidental.

    Just to be clear.

    Oh I would not have ever suggested any questionable behavior, in fact I suspected one way or the other you knew exactly what you were doing.

    I just picked up my copy of FC:I this afternoon, and I have two responses to Erik and James from what I've read so far. A giddy, gleeful IC response, and a more serious OOC one.

    IC:

    "I want to have your half-yugoloth children!"

    OOC:

    You guys have exceeded my expectations for this book, and I have to absolutely commend you for the work you put into it.

    Just rambling off random things that made me grin after work today: the Obyriths encountering Sun-Sing in quasielemental vacuum, Pale Night's involvement on the layer of Androlynne, a nice integration of the Queen of Chaos into the context of what we knew about lower planar history from the Blood War timeline, Charon and the Marraenoloths given reference, the unified Baernaloth origin myth of the fiends given mention, and the various Factions named and their interest in the Abyss detailed.

    Very very very good work guys.

    It goes without saying, but I'll be doing a full review of the book for Planewalker

    Yeah I agree with Shemmy, some very good stuff guys. Other than shooting the art director for allowing that ugly BoVD pic, I'm pretty to very pleased with FC I. Now I'm on the side of "Stronger" Demon Princes/Lords, but otherwise I'm all good with everything shown.

    Well new thralls would have been nice... But eh.

    Agreed, but a dozen or so thrall prestige classes would have edged out more interesting content, alas. Another reason the book should have been about 500 pages longer. And anyway, we had to leave something for future Demonomicon articles, right?

    Alright just promise me a better Thrall of Orcus Pr-class some time in the near future. That's all I'm saying James. That and maybe Thralls of Malchanet(sp) and Pale Night.

    Erik and James,
    I looked through the book yesterday and, while I didn't have the money to buy the book on the spot, this is my first WOTC must buy since the release of the 3.0 core books!

    Btw, did I overlook Lolth or was she not included? If she was not included, was there a specific reason?

    Thanks.

    hmm, now that's probably even more appropriate! wasn't fenris' release from bondage supposed to be one of the events that need to happen to cause Ragnarok?


    BTW, guess what i got today? i need to find some time to really look over it, but the brief glances i've had so far have been tantalizing.
