Great sourcebook for when you need extra mature options for the villains your players are going to face.
While the appendix does give you options for playing such villains, I think the options were designed with NPCs in mind. It packs in lots of options, some of the interesting ones include two new subraces, lots of evil spells, your typical assortment of feats, and new magical items; all themed with evil and horror. There's also background, stat blocks, and plot hooks for the demon lords of Abys Great sourcebook for when you need extra mature options for the villains your players are going to face.
There's also background, stat blocks, and plot hooks for the demon lords of Abyss and the diabolic rulers of the Nine Hells. Some of the poorer bits include the small section on new monsters. I think it's minor and uninteresting enough that they shouldn't have bothered, and used that space for fleshing out the other sections. The prestige classes were pretty poor I think. The majority of them were meant to be themed to their respective demon lord or devil prince, but I didn't find them coherent or thematically interesting.
What I would have liked to see more was more evil ideas and hooks. For example, the options on drug use and torture was useful, but would have been better if ideas on how to use them were also present. Overall though it's a great resource for options you could throw in sparingly into your campaigns, even if you don't want to deal with the subjective morality questions raised in the book.
May 13, SSJKailan rated it liked it. A strange book which varies between interesting and probably unintentionally hilarious. On the interesting side, you have stats and information on the Demon Princes of the Abyss and the Archdevils of the Nine Hells, and their respective plots and deranged mortal cultists. Plus, there are plenty of new spells, items, and prestige classes although some of them fit into the Stupid Evil category.
There are definitely some good ideas floating about, among the daftness. Also, some of the art is pre A strange book which varies between interesting and probably unintentionally hilarious. Also, some of the art is pretty good, if creepy. On the hilarious side, there is the "serious" attempt at looking at the concept of Evil. I'm honestly not sure if I'd recommend this or not.

Okropnie tandetne ilustracje. May 15, Juho Pohjalainen rated it it was ok. Tries to be "mature" but only manages "edgy". Feb 12, Alyssa rated it really liked it. Great resource even for 5e. Aug 23, Nathan Johnson rated it it was amazing. There have been many supplemental source books released for tabletop games. This is one of the many books that deals with questionable and downright evil material, unlike many other such books this remains tasteful and fun material to use.
I should start off with a warning that inside the book there are some graphic illustrations and the material is of an adult nature. The book warns about this and as long as you act maturely the content can be used with great effect. The content and rules contain There have been many supplemental source books released for tabletop games.
The content and rules contained in this book are perfect for a dungeon master to use for their evil NPC's. All manner of evil practices are addressed in this book. Fantasy drugs and poisons, torture and evil religious ceremonies. I myself played a game with this book where it pretty much replaced the dungeon master's guide and player's handbook.
It contains classes, monsters, spells and core rules for a variety of settings. It allowed our great DM to provide us a unique and memorable experience that I would love to visit again in the 4th edition. May 03, Lumina added it.
Interesting, if somewhat revolting book full of slightly gory and dismal imagery. Artwork seems a bit dated. Nothing out of the ordinary, but something of worth perhaps to any proficient DM who would like to become more well-versed in all arenas of roleplaying lore.

Think of it as an antagonist cookbook. Great ideas and classes for some truely demented villians. Jun 28, Stephen Simpson rated it liked it. The notion that this is any sort of in-depth source or treatise on the nature of evil is amusing.
As a source of in-game material on the politics of Hell and the Abyss, it's pretty good. Mar 05, Tom Van Boening rated it really liked it Shelves: my-updated-shelf. Always a great book to inspire some fantastic evil. Jun 11, Abraham Ray rated it liked it Shelves: role-playing-games.
