    The Gates of Hell: Devils for Dicefreaks!

    The Gates of Hell continue to gape!

    What mortals have come to expect from the devils of Hell is not necessarily accurate. The true nature of Hell has been muddied by rumor, legend, and myth, confusing mortals and causing many to go astray. Now, with new information gleaned from those who have braved the Powers of The Pit, many of these myths and legends have been clarified. Herein discover the differences between the enigmatic cosmic entities and the gods of the Creation. Herein uncover the secrets of diabolical advancement. And, herein, discover new devils heretofore unseen by most mortals. From the chromatic legions of the squamugons, who lead arcane spellcasters into depravity, to the god-like malefircareim, the Children of the Devil, become privy to ever more secrets of Hell!

    Can you withstand the glare of the ancient power that waits patiently in the Nine Hells of Perdition, ready to overwhelm you and the Cosmos you hold dear? Look into The Gates of Hell and find out!

    Just so you know, the link in your sig leads to the chapter 1 pdf instead of leading to the downloads page...

    Great job, by the way, like most of the material in the forums (I often lurk there)

    Exactly what is a Cardinal of Hell and could a High level Dark Druid qualify.

    P.S. Serge, what are Asmodeus's domains. I'm trying to design an ogre dark druid of Asmodeus.

    Could a Lawful Evil Dark Druid be a Cardinal of Hell?

    Dark Druids


    Where as Druids were the priests of the ancient Celts the Dark Druids were the servants of nature demons and other evil spirits. While the Druids were respected and held in awe, Dark Druids are seen as worshippers of darkness and corruption. They used their powers and those of their dark gods for petty vengeance and in an attempt to bend nature to the will of their dark lords.

    Saving Throws: Fort; Good, Will; Good, Reflex; Poor

    Base Attack Bonus: Poor

    As Dominate Animal at level 27 but any animal you control that tries to escape suffers 3d8 points of damage +1 per Dark Druid level every hour until it returns or dies. Or if the animal refuses to obey your commands it takes damage per minute of mutiny.

    It both desecrates the area and gives all and plants and animals Lawful Evil alignment and either the fiendish or half-fiend templates unless they pass a will saving throw with a Difficulty check equal to 10+ your wisdom bonus+ Dark Druid Level+ levels in either Cardinal of Hell or Sorcerer(my diabolist class).

    All powers listed in dark red can not be used on hallow ground.

    Would a Dark Druid make a better Dispoiler of Lillith or Cardinal of Hell.

    Would you check and tell my if my converted nethermancer class is overpowered (please look at the most recent posts and revisons). Are their any Priestige Classes that you think are appropriate for it.
