Will you be getting around to finishing the elder evil statblocks anytime soon?
I am doing the Lords of the Nine at the moment. Since these are just updates from my previous Epic Updates it shouldn't take to long. However, I have another project I need to work on for a bit before I can work on the elder evils again. I probably will not get to them until the summer, so maybe June or July? I can do Atropus or Pandorym next if those are still the one you are looking for. Also, regarding Atropus, IIRC the Elder Evils on presented a stat block for his avatar. Is that what you are looking for? I ask because Atropus itself is planet sized IIRC and really outside the scope of these stat blocks.

In anticipation of Planescape next year and getting ready for the blood war, I give you the Lords of the Nine Hells of Baator (+1)! These are Works in Progress (WIP) as these first drafts are mostly a copy/paste from my old Epic Updates series with a few quick tweaks. I still want to do some updating, but I would love to get some feedback before I finish these. Anyway here you go:
  • Lord of 1st (Avernus): Zariel (Elite, CR 24)
  • Lord of 2nd (Dis): Dispater (Elite, CR 24)
  • Lord of 3rd (Minauros): Mammon (Elite, CR 24)
  • Lord(s) of 4th (Phlegethos): Fierna (Elite, CR 24) & Belial (Elite, CR 24)
  • Lord of 5th (Stygia): Levistus (Elite, CR 25)
  • Lord of 6th (Malbolge): Glasya (Elite, CR 26)

Attack (Costs 2 Actions). Orcus makes a Slam or Wand of Orcus attack.
Creeping Death (Costs 2 Actions). Orcus chooses a point on the ground that he can see within 100 feet of him. A cylinder of swirling necrotic energy 60 feet tall and with a 10-foot radius rises from that point and lasts until the end of Orcus’s next turn. Creatures in that area are vulnerable to necrotic damage.
Spellcasting (Costs 2 Actions). Orcus cast a spell or makes a Necrotic Bolt attack.
Quickened Spell (Elite Action). Orcus cast an at will spell.
Empower Undead (Elite Action; Cost 2 Actions). All undead within a 60-foot radius of Orcus gain 50 temporary hit points and advantage on their attacks until the end of their next turn.
Entropic Escape (Costs 2 Actions). Orcus beats his wings. Each creature within 15 feet of the dragon must make a DC 26 Dexterity saving throw or take 20 (3d6 + 10) magical bludgeoning damage plus 14 (4d6) necrotic damage and be knocked prone on a failure, or half as much damage on a success. Orcus can then fly up to half his flying speed.



EQUIPMENT
Wand of Orcus

Weapon (mace), artifact (requires attunement)

The wand can be wielded as a magic mace that grants a +3 bonus to attack and damage rolls made with it. The wand deals an extra 2d12 necrotic damage on a hit.

While attuned to the Orcus, the wand deals and extra 3d12 (5d12 total) necrotic damage and inflicts on level of exhaustion on a hit.

Protection. You gain a +3 bonus to Armor Class while holding the wand.

Spells. The wand has 15 charges. While holding it, you can use an action and expend 1 or more of its charges to cast one of the following spells (save DC 18) from it: animate dead (3 charges), blight (4 charges), circle of death (6 charges), finger of death (7 charges), power word kill (9 charges), or speak with dead (3 charges). The wand regains 2d6 + 6 expended charges daily at dawn.

While attuned to the wand, Orcus or a follower blessed by him can cast each of the wand’s spells using 4 fewer charges (minimum of 0).

Call Undead. While you are holding the wand, you can use an action to conjure skeletons and zombies, calling forth as many of them as you can divide 500 hit points among, each undead having average hit points. The undead magically rise up from the ground or otherwise form in unoccupied spaces within 300 feet of you and obey your commands until they are destroyed or until dawn of the next day, when they collapse into inanimate piles of bones and rotting corpses. Once you use this property of the wand, you can’t use it again until the next dawn.

While attuned to the wand, Orcus can summon any kind of undead, not just skeletons and zombies. The undead don’t perish or disappear at dawn the following day, remaining until Orcus dismisses them.

Abyssal Might. While in the Abyss, Graz'zt's attacks ignore all resistances of creatures with less than 18 hit dice and it scores a critical hit on a roll of 18 or greater.

Banishment. When Graz'zt drops to 0 hit points, and he is not in Azzagrat, his body is destroyed but his essence travels back to his domain in Azzagrat, and is unable to take physical form for a time.

Demon Prince (Elite Trait; 1/Rest). The first time Graz'zt is bloodied, all conditions and effects it is suffering end for it, all of its abilities recharge, and its Elite Actions and Traits are active for 1 hour.

Immutable Form. Graz'zt is immune to any spell or effect that would alter his form.

Limited Magic Immunity. Unless he wishes to be affected, Graz'zt is immune to cantrips and he has advantage on saving throws against all other spells and magical effects and any creature that makes a spell attack against Mephistopheles has disadvantage on the attack roll.

Lord of Azzagrat. While on Azzagrat, Graz'zt can’t be surprised, targeted by divination magic, perceived through magical scrying sensors, and is immune to any effect that would sense his emotions or read his thoughts. Additionally, Wisdom (Insight) checks made to ascertain his intentions or sincerity have disadvantage.

Prince of Seduction. When Graz’zt cast a spell or creates a magical effect that imposes the charmed condition, the target has disadvantage on the saving throw. Additionally, Graz’zt’s charms ignore immunity to the charmed condition if the creature has fewer than 18 hit dice.

ACTIONS
Multiattack. Graz’zt makes three melee attacks. He can replace one attack with a use of Spellcasting or an Acid Jet attack.

Wave of Sorrow (Greatsword). Melee Weapon Attack: +18 to hit, reach 10 ft., one target. Hit: 24 (4d6 + 10) magical slashing damage plus 14 (4d6) acid damage and the target must make a DC 25 Strength saving throw or suffer one of the following effects (chose or roll d6)
1. Twist. The target takes an additional 7 (2d6) magical slashing damage.​
2. Trip. The target takes an addition 3 (1d6) magical bludgeoning damage and is knocked prone.​
3. Shove. The target takes an addition 3 (1d6) magical bludgeoning damage and is pushed 10 feet.​
4. Slow. The target takes an addition 3 (1d6) magical slashing damage and its speed is reduced by 10 feet.​
5. Disarm. The target drops a item they are carrying, Graz'zt's choice.​
6. Daze. The target has disadvantage on their next attack roll and cannot take reactions until the end of their next turn.​

Slam. Melee Weapon Attack: +18 to hit, reach 5 ft., one target. Hit: 24 (4d6 + 10) force damage plus 14 (4d6) acid damage

Charming Touch. Melee Spell Attack: +17 to hit, reach 5 ft., one creature. Hit: The target is charmed.

Jet of Acid. Angdrelve releases acid in a 90-foot line that is 5 feet wide. Each creature in that line must make a DC 25 Dexterity saving throw, taking 33 (6d10) acid damage on a failed save, or half as much on a success.

Spellcasting. Graz’zt casts one of the following spells, requiring no material components and using Charisma as the spellcasting ability (spell save DC 23):

At will: charm person, detect magic, dispel magic
3/day each: darkness, dominate person, telekinesis, teleport
2/day each: dominate monster
1/day each: greater invisibility

Summon Demon (1/Rest). Graz’zt magically summons a number of succubae and mariliths whose total hit points do not exceed 400.

Teleport. Graz’zt magically teleports, along with any equipment he is wearing or carrying, up to 120 feet to an unoccupied space he can see.

REACTIONS
Graz'zt can take two reactions per round, but only one per turn.

Negate Spell (Recharge 5–6). Graz’zt tries to interrupt a spell he sees a creature casting within 120 feet of him. If the spell is 5th level or lower, the spell fails and has no effect. If the spell is 6th level or higher, Graz’zt makes a Charisma check against a DC of 10 + the spell’s level. On a success, the spell fails and has no effect.

Parry. Graz'zt adds 8 to his AC against one attack attack that would hit him. To do so, Graz'zt must see the attacker and be wielding a melee weapon.

LEGENDARY ACTIONS

Abyssal Magic. Graz’zt uses Spellcasting or Teleport.
Caress. Graz'zt uses Charming Touch.
