Hail to the glorious (un) dead
Demons are powerful creatures from nightmare that can only be harmed by good. Weapons bounce off, spells fizzle, fears become reality. Avoid them at all costs. Don’t talk to them. Don’t listen to anything they have to say. I’ve only met one. I and my child nearly didn’t make it before we even began to fight it. And I understand there are many worse.

*Editor’s note: Ah, the days when I knew of but one demon. Please, readers of later editions, reference my Encylopedia of Devils and Demons, much more detail is to be had there, and is sorely needed by anyone who might find themselves dealing with these nasty denizens of the infinite Abyss and the Nine Hells.
