The Penultimate Demon!
While some books have introduced demons with a higher CR, the balor remains the most iconic demon, and its name is synonymous with immense, almost godlike power. These terrible engines of death and destruction have long served as the final challenges for high-level campaigns, and there are few words that can bring excitement — and sometimes just a little bit of fear — to a player’s eyes than knowing that the creature facing his character is none other than one of the might, fabled, and horrific balors. But even these paragons of the abyss shudder at the thought of having to confront one of their mythic brethren, creatures so strong that even mighty demon princes must think twice before battling them!
This book presents game statistics for a mythic balor, including several unique abilities never seen elsewhere. It also contains a selection of powerful balor-themed spells for use by player characters and NPCs alike, each of which also includes information for an augmented, mythic version. Finally, it includes rules for performing special rituals that can be enacted by players of any class in order to summon a mythic balor, which come with both specific game rules for doing so and detailed flavorful descriptions.
The Mythic Mastery series of products builds and expands on the rules for mythic characters introduced in Mythic Adventures. Each Mythic Mastery provides new content and rules for mythic games, with a focus on a single theme or area of play. While some of the content provided in Mythic Mastery products requires the use of mythic characters and a mythic adventure, others, such as those focused on exploring mythic monsters, can be used in games of every sort.
