Arraxian crown warlock's demon pact
« on: August 11, 2016, 10:27:13 AM »
Priestess and warlock both arrived today (yay  :D) and the flavortext speaks of a pact this warlock forged with the demon of blood Bael. It's also kind of obvious with which demon the adramelech warlock forged a pact.

I was wondering with which demon the core set warlock forged a pact. Also Bael? Malacoda?

Will we ever be able to summon Bael? And, who is that horned demon in the back covered in shadows?

Great question Halewijn!

To answer by way of overview, here's an overview of the Major Demons of power that rule Infernia, and by extension, extend their power through blood pacts with the Warlocks of Etheria.

First, and foremost, there's Adramelech, Lord of Fire, Prince of Infernia.

Following him, there's five other major demons of power, each of whom has carved out his own little slice of anti-paradise:

 Abbadon, Lord of Destruction
 Bael, Lord of Blood
 Malacoda, Prince of Pestilence
 Moloch, Lord of Curses
 Thilfel, Lord of Deception

The Warlock in the core set is most closely aligned with Moloch, from whom the most vile and far-reaching curses flow.

Will we ever be able to summon Bael? And, who is that horned demon in the back covered in shadows?

It's possible that a manifestation of Bael might be able to be summoned in future expansions. (Much like Adramelech or Malacoda). In fact, in the alpha versions of Mage Wars, Bael was a creature that could be summoned. (Changes to the needs of the core set and art considerations caused him to be packed back off to Infernia however.) Who knows what the future might hold however?

As for the large demon on the front of the Mage Wars box, he is a type of Shadow Demon. (He hasn't seen light of day in a set yet either -- but again, who knows?)

As a bonus Friday treat, the demons of Infernia can be categorized in several different breeds. The most common kinds of demons are found everywhere, and could be in the service of any demon lord:

 Imps (such as Firebrand Imp, Wildfire Imp, Sersiryx, Imp Familiar, and Skeelax, Taunting Imp)
 Pact Demons (such as the Dark Pact Slayer). Pact Demons are charged with collecting on deals struck with mortals in Etheria, either to fufill the deal, or to reap the souls of those who break deals that have been struck.
 Guardian Demons (such as Cerberus)
 Succubi
Some breeds of demons are led/controlled/used by one of the major demon lords, such as:
 Blade Demons (such as the Drokar), and Blood Demons (such as Guulbrez), and Hellions (such as Flaming Hellion) which are led by Bael
 Chaos Demons, and Forge Demons which are led by Abbadon. (Forge demons work n the dire forges in and around the molten rivers and mountains of Infernia, crafting demonic items for their lord or for the other demons.)
 Mimic Demons, which are led by Thilfel
 Pit Demons (such as the Infernian Scourger), which are led by Abbadon
 Plague Demons and Rot Demons, which are led by Malacoda
 Shadow Demons, which are led by Moloch


Hope this helps! Happy Friday!

Wow!
That is an awesome world of demons.

I am personally looking forward to see a Shadow demon in play. I hope he will feel stronger and darker than grey wraith.
