Hail Satan! Or the deity of your choice. The demonic followers of Dungeons & Dragons have whole pantheons of dark divinities to champion, of course.

This month, Wizards of the Coast is releasing a brand new bestiary full of creatures and foes for your intrepid parties of adventurers to punch in the face until gold drops out of them (or, you know, sometimes run from in terror).

Mordenkainen’s Tome of Foes—similar in style to 2016's Volo’s Guide to Monsters in that it’s part lore book, part rule book—is based on the life’s research of Mordenkainen, the legendary wizard of the World of Greyhawk, imagining all sorts of fantastical creatures from across the planes of existence that he’s encountered over a lifetime of travel and scholarly exploits. This includes the horrifying cults and demonic forces found below, which io9 is proud to exclusively debut!
