Demonomicon of Iggwilv
A Massive Chronicle of the Abyss
This thick tome is bound in brass with a cover of deep purple leather. A clasp shaped like a three-fingered demonic hand holds the immense tome tightly shut. At nearly four feet tall, three feet wide, and two feet thick, this massive volume chronicles centuries of research into the nature of the Hells and its denizens.
In 318 CY, Zagig Yragerne, Iggwilv (using the name Tasha), and the rest of the Company of Seven discovered in the ruins of Veralos the Tome of Zyx, an ancient book of demonic lore that Zagig and Iggwilv would later use to help imprison the demon lord Fraz-Urb’luu. After the binding of Fraz-Urb’luu, Iggwilv would steal the book and bring it with her to her lair in the Yatil Mountains, where she added to its extensive lore and renamed it the Demonomicon of Iggwilv after herself.
Since then, five other copies of the book are known to have been made. An abridged copy can be found among cultists of Dagon in the village of Ashenport.
The bearer of the Demonomicon casts all spells with the evil descriptor as if he were +5 caster levels higher. Also, the owner gains a +5 bonus on Charisma checks made as part of a planar binding or similar conjuration spell if the target is a demon, and a +3 bonus if the target is any other type of evil outsider.
The first five pages ofthe Demonomicon arc blank. Each of th ese pages functions as a gem suitable for the purposes of casting spells like magic jar or trap the soul, that bind souls or whole forms to them (but no other spells). These pages are not destroyed when used as the material component of a spell and may be used multiple times. If a soul or creature is trapped within one of these pages, a distorted shadowy face reminiscent of the bound being’s visage appears on the parchment. Although this image does not move while being directly scrutinized, it changes whenever the tome is closed or unattended. Creatures trapped within the Demonomicon are aware of their surroundings but cannot directly interact with them. Trapped beings can be contacted and conversed with through the use of spells like detect thoughts or telepathic bond.
Currently , three creatures are trapped in these pages, leaving two pages blank. The first is a malebranche devil named
Agalamnar who was betrayed by his master, Dispater. The second is an ancient drow vampire bard named Lirr-Uvati. The final creature is a bitter lilitu demon named Avanilara who once served the demon lord Lynkhab.
