So last night's reading material was the classic original Dungeons & Dragons Eldritch Wizardry book. Through a series of phone calls to DM Steve we got on with some of the campaign details we were working out. But my mind quickly traced back down to original Dungeons & Dragons Eldritch Wizardry book again. There's something about the description of the Type V demon. That certain something that makes them a far more dangerous NPC or monster then it first appears; "Type V: Another of the female demons with a multiarmed female torso atop the body of a great snake, they are taller than a large man and far more terrible. Their six arms are all able to use weapons. These demons are 80% magic resistant, cannot be hit by non-magical weaponry, and their intelligence is high. When desiring to do so, they cause darkness in a 5' radius. Other extraordinary abilities, any one of which can be performed as desired are: Charm person, levitate (as an 11th level magic-user), read languages, detect invisible objects, cause pyrotechnics, polymorph self, project image, and gate in a Type I (30% chance), Type II (25% chance), Type III (15% chance), Type IV (15% chance), Type VI (10% chance), or one of the Princes (5%); but the chance of successfully opening such a gate is a mere 50%."
These 'ladies' are the ring leaders & coordinators of demon kind. And its gotten me thinking about the Burroughs/Bakshi realms . These realms in my mind overlap the demon lands of the Wilderlands of High Fantasy fame. This realm is sort of a elastic mini plane or domain that washes against the shores of a pre Nineteen Eighty Four prime material plane. The inspiration for this was Ralph Bakshi's Spiderman 1968 trippy other dimensional jaunts. You can see half demonic things like this guy just waiting just waiting outta of sight.
