    E.N. Publishing took a while, but we really embraced tieflings for ZEITGEIST. French aristocrats with horns.

    Ryan "RangerWickett" Nock
    Director of the ZEITGEIST campaign saga.


    The most cinematic adventure path for 4th Edition and Pathfinder.

    The final adventure is now available - Avatar of Revolution! As the grinding gears of the Gyre draw the world toward its oblivion, people of every nation, culture, and creed yearn for liberation. The villains need only complete a ritual at Axis Island to impose a thousand years of perfect obedience, but civilization has seen and rejected the future they offer. Though it may be their doom, they choose revolution. For Pathfinder and D&D 4e.

    Thread Necromancy!

    Looking back at the 2e Planescape art, I've concluded two things...

    1. I really don't like DiTerlizzi's style.
    2. Upon further review, 4e's unified tiefling style was a good thing.

    Now, I'd probably tone down the tail and horns a touch, but they at least had a defining visual element to them.

    The 4e Blackmoor book went the route of portraying tieflings as subtly different from humans, though in that setting they weren't the offspring of demonologists, rather the result of exposure to subtle, evil magic.

    Just a hint of horn on the forehead. Very understated, but definitely there.

    Very, very nice. You tiefling has...*drum roll*...big guns!

    I'm glad I'm not the only one who likes tieflings as a single, cohesive race. I imagine that horns can vary in size, too, though I doubt they'd get as small as the above picture. I could definitely see a tiefling raised by humans going the Hellboy route, though, and sawing through the horns.

    And, to continue the double entendre ...

    Is she skilled in the use of a sword, or does she just hold it?
