Devil’s Advocate 

A Guide to Infernal Contracts

Devil’s Advocate: A Guide to Infernal Contracts is a 5th edition supplement for creating, role-playing, and extending infernal contracts at your table. Despite the rich history of devils in Dungeons & Dragons, I felt like there was a gap in official material on this subject. Devil’s Advocate includes:

  • Infernal contract lore

  • Sections on the five essential components of a contract: consideration, the offer, obligation, fine print, and acceptance

  • An alternative system for extending offers, complete with a table of mechanical benefits designed to entice your players

  • Role-playing tips for players

  • Randomized tables and guidance on writing infernal contracts of your own

  • 3 new monsters – the collection agents

  • A prop contract handout

  • And more!

I love the prop handout!

I'm DM'ing DiA, and both myself and one of my players are law students. This guide is perfect for me to define what he would have to roll to notice something or other in the contract.

Any chance you could adapt this to FG (Fantasy Grounds)?

Hi Robert! I'd love to have it adapted for FG, but much of the art would have to be repurchased and re-licensed, including the cover. Unfortunately, the cost is somewhat prohibitive.

This is simply beautiful. I've been doling out contracts to my rogues and assassin-flavored rangers for a couple years now, home-brewing it from lore to mechanics to role-play. I didn't know I needed this until I found it. It is a masterwork of manipulation, a monument of infernal beauty. Bravo!

This is such a fun book! I like how the rewards scale with tiers of play based on how much of your soul you're willing to sacrifice for assistance, and love how there's different bargains offered during casual negotiations vs "NARG MAH PARTY TPK HALP!" bargains.
I tend to get planar entities involved with the campaign as early as 1st tier play... this really helps looking at setting up "Bad Deals" for the heroes to accept then try to dig out from under for the next x adventures.

As a publisher myself, I can't leave reviews, but this would be a solid 5/5 from me.
Champion effort. Very satisfied.

Scanned image
These products were created by scanning an original printed edition. Most older books are in scanned image format because original digital layout files never existed or were no longer available from the publisher.

For PDF download editions, each page has been run through Optical Character Recognition (OCR) software to attempt to decipher the printed text. The result of this OCR process is placed invisibly behind the picture of each scanned page, to allow for text searching. However, any text in a given book set on a graphical background or in handwritten fonts would most likely not be picked up by the OCR software, and is therefore not searchable. Also, a few larger books may be resampled to fit into the system, and may not have this searchable text background.

For printed books, we have performed high-resolution scans of an original hardcopy of the book. We essentially digitally re-master the book. Unfortunately, the resulting quality of these books is not as high. It's the problem of making a copy of a copy. The text is fine for reading, but illustration work starts to run dark, pixellating and/or losing shades of grey. Moiré patterns may develop in photos. We mark clearly which print titles come from scanned image books so that you can make an informed purchase decision about the quality of what you will receive.
Original electronic format
These ebooks were created from the original electronic layout files, and therefore are fully text searchable. Also, their file size tends to be smaller than scanned image books. Most newer books are in the original electronic format. Both download and print editions of such books should be high quality.
