[Demonomicon] Astaroth, Diabolus Part 3 Minions of Astaroth

Astaroth's realm is known as the Terminal Archives. It was formed from the lore of a thousand Prime world and is said to even contain lore that pre-dates even the Chaos Queen. This is the only place in which there is a neutral truce. Both demon and devil are welcome in the library. All are welcome as long as they make the payment of adding new knowledge to the collection.

The minions of Astaroth are varied. The only common denominator is their thirst of knowledge. However, Astaroth favors the Librarian Demon. Their ability to utilise knowledge to their own advantage best exemplifies the demon lord's portfolio. The Terminal Archives are maintained by a cadre of these demons.

A hooded figure floats 6 inches above the ground. Holding a book, it illuminates the pages with an eerie glow emnating from its hoods.

The favored minion of Astaroth, the Librarian Demon often acts as a scribe for other demon lords. Constantly seeking knowledge to add into Astaroth's collection, these demons roam the Material Plane to make bargains with reckless mortals to give up precious secrets. When threatened, they would try to talk their way out. However when cornered, they would unleash a barrage of spells and aim at weak spots of the creatures.

Dark Knowledge : The librarian demon could use the Dark Knowledge class feature of the archivist. Use the Librarian Demon HD as the archivist level to determine the number of times used and what benefits could be conferred to its allies.

If the Librarian Demon gains level in Archivist, this stacks with the Archivist level.

Librarian Demons can cast divine spells as 14th level Archivist. The save DCs are Wisdom-based.
