Episode 45: Seasons in the Abyss


This week on Spellburn, we’re taking a deep, dark look at the world of DEMONS.  Sure they’ve been around since the days of AD&D, although they apparently got a little too hot for some game companies in the late 80s.  But they’ve always been a part of Appendix N and nothing could be more old-school than featuring them in your Dungeon Crawl Classics game.  We’ll talk about how to use them as bad guys, Patrons and NPCs, the spells that bind them and even thoughts about running campaigns on their home turf– in the Abyss.
