About Demons

  • Demons do not suffer from conditions.
  • Demons have almost no mass. They can run up walls and change direction without losing speed. Their will shapes and guides their body, so they cannot be blown away or carried by the wind against their will, as if they had no weight.
  • When a demon is slain, no body remains behind (all that is left is a small amount of slime, sulfur, or similar material).
  • Attacks with mundane weapons do half damage against demons (halve the damage points after subtracting the demon’s PRO).
  • Attacks with weapons blessed by an opposing deity inflict double damage against the demon (roll for damage, multiply the result by two, and then subtract the demon’s PRO).
  • Attacks with weapons blessed by other gods, as well as attacks with magical weapons, inflict normal damage against demons.
  • Demons are immune to spells with the properties Healing, Illusion, Influence, and Transformation.
  • Their Spirit applies as a modifier to all other spells (even if you would not normally use Spirit). If a spell uses Spirit as a modifier, modify it with 2xSpirit when cast on demons. When a spell uses Toughness, it is modified by Toughness and Spirit. Demons use Spirit as additional Protection against spells that cause direct damage.

  • Elementals are immune to spells with the properties Healing, Illusion, Influence, and Transformation.

Elementals use Spirit as additional PRO against spells that cause direct damage.
  • Elementals are immune to poisons and diseases.
