AsmodeusRender

I have heard it said evil is nothing more than good’s absence, as if evil was the darkness to good’s light. A comforting thought, I imagine, for those seeking redemption, but, I tell you, put such thoughts from your mind. You need only peer into a demon’s eyes to know evil is not some vacuum waiting for virtue to come and fill its emptiness. Evil is a force. It is an influence in the cosmos, an agency equal to or perhaps even greater than its antithesis. There are two sides in this eternal struggle, one light and the other dark. You might find evil’s works reprehensible, yet to those whose hearts belong to corruption, good deeds are equally deplorable. Understand, there is no redemption, only treason against the side you were born to serve.

Summary

Asmodeus is an Archdevil and the current ruler of hell in Dungeons and Dragons. His origin is clouded in myth and lies. Ranging from a fallen Solar who stole a shard from the Abyss to kill his creator god to a primordial being who helped shape the multiverse itself. No matter his origin, his strength and intelligence allows him to rule the Nine Hells with an iron fist and his goal is nothing short of complete control of the multiverse.

Supernatural Abilities (Archdevil)

Aura of Submission (Su) At the end of each of Asmodeus’s turns, creatures within 20 feet of him must succeed on DC 36 Will saves or submit to all of Asmodeus’s commands for 1 day, doing whatever he asks as if every request of his was a suggestion spell against which the target cannot resist. This is a mind-affecting ability. A creature that successfully saves cannot be affected by Asmodeus’s aura ever again.

Chill Gaze (Su) As the slow spell; DC 36; caster level 20th. Chill gaze has a range of 30 feet. On a failed saving throw, the target also takes a –2 penalty on all attack rolls, damage rolls, saving throws, ability checks, and skill checks for 1 hour.

Demand Submission (Su): Once per round as a standard action, Asmodeus can force any single creature who can hear and understand his voice to attempt a Will saving throw (DC 37). If the creature fails, it submits to the ruler of hell for 10d10 days, doing whatever Asmodeus asks as if every request of his was a suggestion against which the target cannot resist with a saving throw. Once a creature succeeds at a saving throw against this ability, it is forever immune to the effect.

Fear and Weakness Gaze (Su) As fear and ray of enfeeblement spells; DC 36; caster level 20th. Fear and weakness gaze has a range of 60 feet. Those affected by Asmodeus’s gaze must succeed on two saving throws, one for fear and the other for ray of enfeeblement.

Regeneration (Ex) Good weapons, and spells and effects with the good descriptor, deal normal damage to Asmodeus. If Asmodeus loses a limb or body part, the lost portion regrows in 1d6 minutes. Asmodeus can reattach the severed member instantly by holding it to the stump.

Summon Baatezu (Sp) Three times per day, Asmodeus can automatically summon one pit fiend or two of any other kind of devil (including the aspects of other archdevils). This ability is the equivalent of a 9th-level spell (CL 20th).

Tongues (Su) As the tongues spell; always active; caster level 20th.


Keys: Solar | Avatar | Archdevil | Lesser God | Greater God | Ahriman


Note: Asmodeus’ origin is clouded in mystery and contain multiple contradicting elements. In some he is a fallen angel, in others a massive serpent who’s fall created the Nine-Hell’s, in others a Fallen God who has waited for eons to regain his divinity, and in one even the creator of the multiverse itself. As such the profile may contain contradicting information. The Avatar key shares the same power and abilities as the Lesser and Greater God keys, just on a much lower level. Also as of this profile, Asmodeus is a Lesser God after having his power reduced.
