Devils are a race of creatures native to Lawful Evil-aligned planes. They are Evil Outsider type monsters. Baatezu is an AD&D 2nd Edition terminology, back then the game was accused of being "Satanic", so TSR, Inc. renamed it.
Most Devils possess the following traits, unless otherwise noted in a creature’s entry.
- Tip #206: Devils are Lawful Evil and tend to dislike silver. Demons are Chaotic Evil and tend to dislike cold iron.
- Tip #206 (Other version.): To bypass the Damage Reduction (DR) of Devils, you need a silver or good weapon or a weapon that is both silver and good, depending on the Devil. To bypass the DR of Demons, you need a cold iron or good weapon or a weapon that is both cold iron and good. Good metalline weapons can bypass the DR of both types of creature.
Devils have many sub-races, with highly varied forms and characteristics. These include:
