Power, domination, tyrannyAsmodeus is the evil god of tyranny and domination. He rules the Nine Hells with an iron fist and a silver tongue. Aside from devils, evil creatures such as rakshasas pay him homage, and evil tieflings and warlocks are drawn to his dark cults. His rules are strict and his punishments harsh:
- Seek power over others, that you might rule with strength as the Lord of Hell does.
- Repay evil with evil. If others are kind to you, exploit their weakness for your own gain.
- Show neither pity nor mercy to those who are caught underfoot as you climb your way to power. The weak do not deserve compassion.
Asmodeus in Nerath since the Time of the Dark
Asmodeus has a strong following in what was the Empire of Alketch. The invasion by the Dark triggered a civil war when the Emperor died without a heir. Since then, petty despots have been trying to gain the throne as the country fractures more and more. The ambitious men are ruthless and slick. They see in Asmodeus everything they aspire to be.
