Demonology 101

The Art of Summoning

Obscurity (X/Y) – X represents the commonality of the demon species and Y represents how common accurate facts about the demon are.

Knowing of Demons (Automatic) (BoS v5 p 26) – Take a character’s Occult score and subtract two. The character automatically knows of every demon with an Obscurity rating equal to or lower than the result—the name and a brief description, if (Occult – 2) is equal to or greater than the first number, and the full details if (Occult – 2) is equal to or greater than the second number.

Binding: Opposed Essence + Willpower, Demon of the First Circle subjects the demon to a -1 internal penalty per 5 motes spent. Whoever reaches a 3 success advantage first succeeds.

Banishing: Should the binding fail, make a reflexive Wits + Occult at difficulty 3 to banish the demon back to Malfeas. Failure looses the Demon on Creation.

Equipment: Resources 2 cage with Resources 1 consumables or suffer -1 external penalty to binding and -2 external penalty to banishing. Resources 3 cage provides a +1 die bonus on binding rolls. Resources 2 consumables also provides a +1 die bonus on binding rolls.

Oaths: The sorcerer may offer an oath to the demon for 2 automatic successes in the binding. Deceiving the demon allows it to read motivation as normal.

Ideal Conditions: (Essence + Willpower – 3) / 2, the number of dice the sorcerer can afford the demon. Ensures 99% chance of success.
