Archduke (Elite Trait; 1/Rest). The first time Asmodeus is bloodied, all conditions and effects he is suffering end for him, all of his abilities recharge, and his Elite Actions and Traits are active for 1 hour.

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

Infernal Might. While in Hell, Asmodeus's attacks ignore all resistances of creatures with less than 20 hit dice and he scores a critical hit on a roll of 17 or greater.

Limited Magic Immunity. Unless he wishes to be affected, Mephistopheles 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 Nessus. While on Nessus, Asmodeus can’t be surprised or changed into another form against his will, he can’t be 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.

Additionally, while on Nessus, any creature hostile to Asmodeus that starts its turn within line of sight of him must either avert its eyes (if the target is surprised, it cannot avert its eyes) or succeed on a DC 20 Wisdom saving throw at the end of each of its turns. If it fails three attempts before it succeeds on three attempts it is dominated, as in the dominate monster spell. If a creature succeeds on its saving throw or the effect ends for it, it is immune to Authority of Nessus for 24 hours.

Lord of the Nine. While in hell, Asmodeus can revoke or grant control of a layer of hell. To do so he must be on the layer and then must spend a full round doing nothing but concentrating on this task. At the end of the round the Lordship of the layer changes as Asmodeus desires. If Asmodeus revokes control without assigning to another, he gains control of the layer and that plane is considered Nessus for any of Asmodeus' traits or abilities.

ACTIONS
Multiattack. Asmodeus makes two melee attacks. He can replace one of these attacks to cast an at will spell.

Ruby Rod. Melee Weapon Attack: +21 to hit, reach 10 ft., one target. Hit: 30 (4d8 + 12) magical bludgeoning damage plus 27 (6d8) acid, cold, or lightning damage, Asmodeus’ choice.

Slam. Melee Weapon Attack: +18 to hit, reach 5 ft., one target. Hit: 19 (3d6 + 9) magical bludgeoning damage plus 14 (4d6) fire damage and the target must succeed on DC 26 Strength saving throw or be knocked prone, grappled, or stunned until the end of its next turn (Asmodeus’s choice).

Hellfire Pillar (recharge 5-6). Asmodeus chooses a point on the ground that he can see within 480 feet of him. A cylinder of fire, 100 feet tall with a 15-foot radius, rises from that point and lasts for 1 minute. Creatures in the area when the pillar erupts, or that end their turn in the area, lose their immunity or resistance to fire damage, or gain vulnerability to fire damage if they did not have any resistance or immunity, for 1 minute. In addition, each crearture must make a DC 27 Dexterity saving throw, taking 55 (10d10) fire damage on a failure, or half as much damage on a success.

Meteor Swarm (9th level). Mephestopheles selects four points within 1 mile of him. A sphere of flame strikes the ground at each point and explodes in a 40-foot radius. The effects of a sphere reach around corners. Creatures and objects in the area take 14d6 fire damage and 14d6 bludgeoning damage, and flammable unattended objects catch on fire. If a creature is in the area of more than one sphere, it is affected only once.

Summon Devil (3/Rest). Asmodeus magically summons one of the following type of devils: 2d4+2 bone devils, 1d6+2 horned devils, 1d6+2 erinyes, 1d4+2 ice devils, or 1d4 pit fiends; or one of his Dukes; or (25% chance of success) one arch-devil.

Teleport. Asmodeus teleports, along with any equipment he is wearing or carrying, up to 120 feet to an unoccupied space he can see. While on Nessus, the distance Asmodeus can teleport is doubled.

Planeshift (1/Rest). Asmodeus can

REACTIONS
Asmodeus can take two reactions per round, but only one per turn.

Counterspell. When a creature Asmodeus can see within 60 feet of him casts a spell, he can attempt to disrupt it. If the spell is 3rd level or lower, it fails and has no effect. If the spell is 4th level or higher, Asmodeus makes an Intelligence check (DC 10 + the spell’s level). On a success, the spell fails and has no effect.

Diabolical Influence. If Asmodeus is targeted for a ranged weapon or spell attack, he adds +4 to his AC, if the attack misses then he can telekinetically move the closest creature to him (aside from the creature who targeted Asmodeus for the initial attack) to take the hit instead of him. If the attack still hits, then this reaction does not take effect.

LEGENDARY ACTIONS
Asmodeus can take 3 legendary actions, choosing from the options below. He can use one legendary action option at the end of another creatures turn and any unused legendary actions at the end of the round. Asmodeus regains spent legendary actions at the start of his turn.

Elite Recovery. Asmodeus ends one condition or negative effect currently affecting him. He can do so as long as she has at least 1 hit point, even while unconscious or incapacitated.
Fling. One medium or smaller object or creature held or grappled by Asmodeus is thrown up to 60 ft in a direction of its choosing and knocked prone. If a thrown target strikes a solid surface the target takes 3 (1d6) bludgeoning damage for every 10 feet it was thrown.

If the target is thrown at another creature, that creature must succeed on a DC 27 Dexterity saving throw or take the same damage and be knocked prone.
Regenerate. Asmodeus regains 40 hit points.
Slam. Asmodeus makes a Slam attack.
Teleport. Asmodeus uses his Teleport action.

EQUIPMENT
Ruby Rod

Absorption. While holding this rod, you can use your reaction to absorb a spell that is targeting only you and not with an area of effect. The absorbed spell's effect is canceled, and the spell's energy — not the spell itself — is stored in the rod. The energy has the same level as the spell when it was cast and is stored as a charge, see Spells below. Once the rod is fully charged (50 charged), it can't absorb more. If you are targeted by a spell that the rod can't store, the rod has no effect on that spell.

Heaven's Bane. On a hit, the rod deals an extra 10d10 radiant or necrotic damage to celestials, your choice.

Lord of Hell. While holding the rod you can use an action to cast Mass Suggestion at 9th level. If you are in hell, the spell ignores immunity to the charmed condition, the range is 1 mile, there is not limit on the number of devils targeted, and devils have disadvantage on the saving throw.

Rulership. You can use an action present the rod and command obedience from each creature of your choice that you can see within 240 feet of you. Each target must succeed on a DC 20 Wisdom saving throw or be charmed by you for 8 hours. While charmed in this way, the creature regards you as its trusted leader. If harmed by you or your companions, or commanded to do something contrary to its nature, a target ceases to be charmed in this way.

Spells. The rod has 50 charges. While holding this rod, you can use an action to cast one of the following spells (spell save DC 20, +12 to hit with attack spells): arcane eye (4 charges), bestow curse (3 charges), acid arrow (9th level; 9 charges) cone of cold (9th level; 9 charges), lightning bolt (9th level; 9 charges).

The rod regains 3d10 + 10 charges daily at dawn.

Returning. The rod magically returns to Asmodeus' hand when summoned (no action).

EQUIPMENT
Staff of Fraz'Urb-Luu
Staff, artifact (requires attunement)
This staff can be wielded as a magic quarterstaff that grants a +3 bonus to attack and damage rolls made with it. While holding it, you gain a +3 bonus to Armor Class, saving throws, and spell attack rolls.

The staff has 20 charges for the following properties. The staff regains 2d8 + 4 expended charges daily at dawn. If you expend the last charge, roll a d20. On a 1, the staff retains its +2 bonus to attack and damage rolls but loses all other properties. On a 20, the staff regains 1d8 + 2 charges.

Power Strike. When you hit with a melee attack using the staff, you can expend 1 charge to deal an extra 1d6 force damage to the target.

Spells. While holding this staff, you can use an action to expend 1 or more of its charges to cast one of the following spells from it, using your spell save DC and spell attack bonus: cone of cold (5 charges), fireball (5th-level version, 5 charges), globe of invulnerability (6 charges), hold monster (5 charges), levitate (2 charges), lightning bolt (5th-level version, 5 charges), magic missile (1 charge), ray of enfeeblement (1 charge), or wall of force (5 charges).

Fraz-Urb'luu's most impressive possession was the Staff of Fraz'Urb-luu. It was essentially a weapon with the combined powers of a staff of command, a rod of beguiling, and a rod of rulership.[8]

This rod can be wielded as a Large magic mace that grants a +3 bonus to attack and damage rolls made with it. Additionally, it deals an extra 6d8 cold, fire, or acid damage, your choice. on a hit.

Absorption. While holding this rod, you can use your reaction to absorb a spell that is targeting only you and not with an area of effect.

If you are targeted by a spell that the rod can't store, the rod has no effect on that spell.

Heaven's Bane. On a hit, the rod deals an extra 10d10 radiant or necrotic damage to celestials, your choice.

Lord of Hell. While holding the rod you can use an action to cast Mass Suggestion at 9th level. If you are in hell, the spell ignores immunity to the charmed condition, the range is 1 mile, there is not limit on the number of devils targeted, and devils have disadvantage on the saving throw.

Rulership. You can use an action present the rod and command obedience from each creature of your choice that you can see within 240 feet of you. Each target must succeed on a DC 20 Wisdom saving throw or be charmed by you for 8 hours. While charmed in this way, the creature regards you as its trusted leader. If harmed by you or your companions, or commanded to do something contrary to its nature, a target ceases to be charmed in this way.

If harmed by you or your companions, or commanded to do something contrary to its nature, a target ceases to be charmed in this way.

Spells. The rod has 50 charges. While holding this rod, you can use an action to cast one of the following spells (spell save DC 20, +12 to hit with attack spells): arcane eye (4 charges), bestow curse (3 charges), acid arrow (9th level; 9 charges) cone of cold (9th level; 9 charges), lightning bolt (9th level; 9 charges).

Archduke (Elite Trait; 1/Rest). The first time Asmodeus is bloodied, all conditions and effects he is suffering end for him, all of his abilities recharge, and his Elite Actions and Traits are active for 1 hour.

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

Infernal Might. While in Hell, Asmodeus's attacks ignore all resistances of creatures with less than 20 hit dice and he scores a critical hit on a roll of 17 or greater.

Limited Magic Immunity. Unless he wishes to be affected, Mephistopheles 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 Nessus. While on Nessus, Asmodeus can’t be surprised or changed into another form against his will, he can’t be 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.

Additionally, while on Nessus, any creature hostile to Asmodeus that starts its turn within line of sight of him must either avert its eyes (if the target is surprised, it cannot avert its eyes) or succeed on a DC 20 Wisdom saving throw at the end of each of its turns. If it fails three attempts before it succeeds on three attempts it is dominated, as in the dominate monster spell. If a creature succeeds on its saving throw or the effect ends for it, it is immune to Authority of Nessus for 24 hours.

Lord of the Nine. While in hell, Asmodeus can revoke or grant control of a layer of hell. To do so he must be on the layer and then must spend a full round doing nothing but concentrating on this task. At the end of the round the Lordship of the layer changes as Asmodeus desires. If Asmodeus revokes control without assigning to another, he gains control of the layer and that plane is considered Nessus for any of Asmodeus' traits or abilities.

ACTIONS
Multiattack. Asmodeus makes two melee attacks. He can replace one of these attacks to cast an at will spell.

Ruby Rod. Melee Weapon Attack: +21 to hit, reach 10 ft., one target. Hit: 30 (4d8 + 12) magical bludgeoning damage plus 27 (6d8) acid, cold, or lightning damage, Asmodeus’ choice.

Hellfire Pillar (recharge 5-6). Asmodeus chooses a point on the ground that he can see within 480 feet of him. A cylinder of fire, 100 feet tall with a 15-foot radius, rises from that point and lasts for 1 minute. Creatures in the area when the pillar erupts, or that end their turn in the area, lose their immunity or resistance to fire damage, or gain vulnerability to fire damage if they did not have any resistance or immunity, for 1 minute. In addition, each crearture must make a DC 27 Dexterity saving throw, taking 55 (10d10) fire damage on a failure, or half as much damage on a success.

Meteor Swarm (9th level). Mephestopheles selects four points within 1 mile of him. A sphere of flame strikes the ground at each point and explodes in a 40-foot radius. The effects of a sphere reach around corners. Creatures and objects in the area take 14d6 fire damage and 14d6 bludgeoning damage, and flammable unattended objects catch on fire. If a creature is in the area of more than one sphere, it is affected only once.

Summon Devil (3/Rest). Asmodeus magically summons one of the following type of devils: 2d4+2 bone devils, 1d6+2 horned devils, 1d6+2 erinyes, 1d4+2 ice devils, or 1d4 pit fiends; or one of his Dukes; or (25% chance of success) one arch-devil.

REACTIONS
Asmodeus can take two reactions per round, but only one per turn.

If the attack still hits, then this reaction does not take effect.

Asmodeus can take 3 legendary actions, choosing from the options below. He can use one legendary action option at the end of another creatures turn and any unused legendary actions at the end of the round. Asmodeus regains spent legendary actions at the start of his turn.

Elite Recovery. Asmodeus ends one condition or negative effect currently affecting him. He can do so as long as she has at least 1 hit point, even while unconscious or incapacitated.
Fling. One medium or smaller object or creature held or grappled by Asmodeus is thrown up to 60 ft in a direction of its choosing and knocked prone. If a thrown target strikes a solid surface the target takes 3 (1d6) bludgeoning damage for every 10 feet it was thrown.

If the target is thrown at another creature, that creature must succeed on a DC 27 Dexterity saving throw or take the same damage and be knocked prone.
Regenerate. Asmodeus regains 40 hit points.
Slam. Asmodeus makes a Slam attack.
Teleport. Asmodeus uses his Teleport action.
Ruby Rod (Costs 2 Actions). Asmodeus makes a Ruby Rod attack or uses on of the artifacts powers.
Puppet Master (Elite Action). Asmodeus exerts precise control over one creature he has dominated and forces to use its reaction to move and/or attack one of Asmodeus' enemies.
Chill Gaze (Elite Action; Costs 2 actions). Asmodeus can force one creature within 240 feet of him that can see him to look into his eyes. The creature must make a DC 27 Wisdom saving throw, taking 65 (10d12) cold damage and be paralyzed until the end of Asmodeus next turn on a failure and half as much damage on a success.
Hellish Recharge (Elite Action; Costs 3 actions). Asmodeus recharges hellfire pillar and uses it.



EQUIPMENT
Ruby Rod

Rod, artifact (requires attunement by a lawful evil fiend)

This rod can be wielded as a Large magic mace that grants a +3 bonus to attack and damage rolls made with it. Additionally, it deals an extra 6d8 cold, fire, or acid damage, your choice. on a hit.

Absorption. While holding this rod, you can use your reaction to absorb a spell that is targeting only you and not with an area of effect. The absorbed spell's effect is canceled, and the spell's energy — not the spell itself — is stored in the rod. The energy has the same level as the spell when it was cast and is stored as a charge, see Spells below. Once the rod is fully charged (50 charged), it can't absorb more. If you are targeted by a spell that the rod can't store, the rod has no effect on that spell.

Heaven's Bane. On a hit, the rod deals an extra 10d10 radiant or necrotic damage to celestials, your choice.

Lord of Hell. While holding the rod you can use an action to cast Mass Suggestion at 9th level. If you are in hell, the spell ignores immunity to the charmed condition, the range is 1 mile, there is not limit on the number of devils targeted, and devils have disadvantage on the saving throw.

Rulership. You can use an action present the rod and command obedience from each creature of your choice that you can see within 240 feet of you. Each target must succeed on a DC 20 Wisdom saving throw or be charmed by you for 8 hours. While charmed in this way, the creature regards you as its trusted leader. If harmed by you or your companions, or commanded to do something contrary to its nature, a target ceases to be charmed in this way.

Spells. The rod has 50 charges. While holding this rod, you can use an action to cast one of the following spells (spell save DC 20, +12 to hit with attack spells): arcane eye (4 charges), bestow curse (3 charges), acid arrow (9th level; 9 charges) cone of cold (9th level; 9 charges), lightning bolt (9th level; 9 charges).

The rod regains 3d10 + 10 charges daily at dawn.

Special. While Asmodeus is in possession of the Ruby Rod it uses his save DC and attack bonus and attacks made with it ignore resistance to cold, acid, or lightning damage. Additional, it has the following property:

Returning. The rod magically returns to Asmodeus' hand when summoned (no action).

A few thoughts on the big man:

  • The Lord of Nessus ability feels clunky. The combination of both "averting your eyes" and "3 successes before failures" feels like too much complexity. I think this can be toned down.
  • You mention that all spells are "cast at the highest level" but your example has fireball and counterspell as a 3rd level spell. Did you mean that all spells are now 9th level for effects? If you did, your attack damage may need to be buffed, right now it feels like casting 2 at-will spells a round is going to bring a lot more general pain than his attacks.
  • Does the ruby rod spells do anything different than Asmodeus' innate spellcasting? Its a bit strange that Asmodeus casts lightning bolt at will himself and from the rod.
  • Lord of Hell, I would change the language a bit to make this clearer. I would say "devils do not count against your maximum number of targetted creatures"...something like that to clarify how the spell works when you target non-devil and devil subjects.
  • Regenerate 40 actually feels pretty low for a CR 29, I could see that buffing up a bit.
  • One thing that is always talked about Asmodeus, he has schemes within schemes within schemes. While he has the 30 int, it would be nice to have some ability that highlights his tactical genius. A few ideas:
    • Asmodeus instantly knows the stats of any character he sees.
    • He is immune from surprise (I knew you would do that!)
    • Some lair type ability that activates when a player moves (aww you fell right into my trap, as I knew you would).

This was a carry over from my epic update that was designed by someone else. I agree it could be significantly streamlined if not removed.

The rod is an artifact that others can use. That doesn't mean Asmo has to have it to cast some spells. There will be some overlap. Also, some of the repeats are cast a higher level on the rod. Since it takes a full action to use the rod it shouldn't mess with the CR.
  • Lord of Hell, I would change the language a bit to make this clearer. I would say "devils do not count against your maximum number of targetted creatures"...something like that to clarify how the spell works when you target non-devil and devil subjects.
I like that, thank you.
  • Regenerate 40 actually feels pretty low for a CR 29, I could see that buffing up a bit.
The regenerate amounts are a little all over at the moment. I need to come up with a guideline and then apply to all the archdevils.

Great ideas! I really like this idea of giving mechanical weight to his schemes. I will give it go when I get some time.

Thank you as always for your review and ideas.

I've revised Lord of Nessus, Spellcasting, and Lord of Hell. I also added "Master Tactician." let me know what you think.

Coven Sisters. When all three Malagard sisters are within 60 feet of each other they regain some of their former power. They have access to their Coven Magic, they each gain 40 temporary hit points, their melee attacks inflict an additional 10 (3d6) fire damage on a hit, and they are each worth 13,000 XP (CR 15) for defeating them.

Magic Resistance. Unless she wishes to be affected, Malagard has advantage on saving throws against spells and magical effects and any creature that makes a spell attack against Malagard has disadvantage on the attack roll.

ACTIONS
Multiattack.
Malagard makes one Claws attack and a Bite attack. Malagard can replace one of these attacks to cast an at will spell.

Bite. Melee Weapon Attack: +10 to hit, reach 5 ft., one creature grappled by Malagard, incapacitated, or restrained. Hit: 8 (1d6 + 5) piercing damage plus 10 (3d6) necrotic damage and the creature must make a DC 17 Constitution saving throw or be poisoned. While poisoned this way, the target cannot recover from exhaustion from resting and instead gains one level of exhaustion after each long rest.

Claws. Melee Weapon Attack: +10 to hit, reach 5 ft., one target. Hit: 17 (2d6 + 10) slashing damage plus 9 (2d6) poison damage and the target must make a DC 18 Strength saving throw or be grappled.

Change Shape. Malagard magically polymorphs into a Small or Medium female humanoid, or back into her true form. Her statistics are the same in each form. Any equipment she is wearing or carrying isn't transformed. She reverts to her true form if she dies.

Innate Spellcasting. Malagard's innate spellcasting ability is Intelligence (spell save DC 17, +9 to hit with spell attacks). She can innately cast the following spells, requiring no material components:

At will: detect magic, magic missile
2/day each: animate dead, dispel magic, plane shift (self only), ray of enfeeblement, sleep
1/day each: fireball

Coven Magic. When Malgard's Coven Sisters trait is active, she cast the following spells, sharing the number of uses with her sisters and requiring no material components:

3/day each: identify, ray of sickness, hold person, locate object, bestow curse, counterspell, lightning bolt,
2/day each: contact other plane, phantasmal killer, polymorph, scrying
1/day each: eyebite, finger of death, incendiary cloud

Magic Missile (1st level). Malagard magically conjures three glowing darts that automatically strike one or more targets Malagard can see within 120 feet of her. Each dart inflicts 7 (1d4 +5) force damage.
Fireball (3rd level; 1/Day). Malagard casts the fireball spell. A bright streak flashes to a point Malagard chooses within 120 feet of her that then explodes in flame. Each creature in a 20-foot radius sphere from that point must make a DC 24 Dexterity saving throw, taking 28 (8d6) fire damage on a failed save, or half as much damage on a successful one.
Finger of Death (Coven Magic; 7th level; 1/Day). A creature of Malagard's choice within 60 feet of her must make a DC 20 Constitution saving throw, taking 61 (7d8 + 30) necrotic damage on a failed saving throw or half damage on a success. A humanoid killed by this spell turns into a zombie under the Malagard's control at the start of her next turn.
Incendiary Cloud (Coven Magic; 8th level; 1/Day; Concentration). Malagard selects a point she can see within 150 feet of her. A boiling cloud of hot smoke and embers erupts into a 20-foot radius sphere from the point. The cloud spreads around corners, is heavily obscured, and lasts for 1 minute. When the cloud appears and a creature is in it, when a creature enters the cloud for the first time on a turn, or when a creature ends its turn within the cloud it make a DC 17 Dexterity saving throw, taking 45 (10d8) fire damage on a failed save, or half as much on a successful one.

The cloud can be dispelled by a wind of at least 10 miles per hour. After it is cast, the cloud moves 10 feet away from you in a direction that you choose at the start of each of your turns.


BONUS ACTIONS
Teleport (Recharge 5-6). Malagard magically teleports, along with any equipment she is wearing and carrying, up to 60 feet to an unoccupied space he can see.

REACTIONS
Counterspell (Coven Magic; 3/Day).
When a creature Malagard can see within 60 feet of her casts a spell, she can attempt to disrupt it. If the spell is 3rd level or lower, it fails and has no effect. If the spell is 4th level or higher, Malagard makes an Intelligence check (DC 10 + the spell’s level). On a success, the spell fails and has no effect.

Fiendish Escape. Malagard can take the Dash, Disengage or Hide action.
