AD&D Deities:  Devils
  Devils are worshipped by evils of a more lawful bent.  Despite the clear authority structure of their realm, several of the major ones have their own followings, mostly among monsters.  It should be noted that although Asmodeus is clearly the monarch ruling over all other devils, it is not uncommon for a powerful mortal to seek service with a lesser devil, hoping to be a powerful member of a lesser court rather than an insignificant vassal in a higher one.

 Amon, a Duke of Hell, is a vassal of Geryon.

 Asmodeus is the Overlord of all dukes of hell, acknowledged master of devilkind.  The ultimate evil this Arch-devil represents is hidden beneath his beauty.  His throne is on the lowest of hells, the ninth.

 Baalzebul is also an Arch-devil.  Lord of the Flies, Lord of Lies, he is master of two of the nine hells, the sixth and seventh.

 Bael, a Duke of Hell, is a vassal of Mammon.

 Great Belial is an Arch-devil, ruler of the fourth hell.  He is closely allied with Baalzebul, hates Geryon, and is ever watchful of Mammon.  He commands the abishai.

 Dispater is the Arch-devil who rules the second hell.  There is some connection between him and lawful undead, but it is not clear what that is.  It is also suggested that he supports Mephistopheles over Asmodeus, but he has never done anything which would support such charges.

 Geryon, the Wild Beast, rules as Arch-devil in the fifth hell.  His appearance combines aspects of several different animals.

 Glasya, Princess of Hell, is Mammon's consort and Asmodeus' daughter.

 Hutijin is a Duke of Hell, a vassal of Mephistopheles.

 Mammon is an Arch-devil, king of the third hell.  Although he has never failed to obey Asmodeus, he is rumored to support Mephistopheles.

 Mephistopheles--Mephisto for short--rules the eighth hell.  An Arch-devil, he hopes to conquer the seventh hell, and with this increase in his strength (at Baalzebul's expense) to overthrow Asmodeus and wrest control of the hells.

 Moloch, although an Arch-devil himself, is viceroy of Baalzebul, ruling the sixth hell for his master as a grand duke.

 Titivilus is Dispater's messenger.  A Duke of Hell himself, he has the ability to twist words and use them to confuse.

The best new role playing game....

The Multiverser Information Center
The complexity of creating a D&D character always reminds me of how much simpler it is to play
Multiverser®, the game which incorporates all other games, all other worlds, everything imaginable, with nothing else to buy.

A consideration of time travel....

Temporal Anomalies in Popular Movies
There are enough time travel films out there now that most of the things which could go wrong in time have been shown on the silver screen.  This page applies a new conception of how time works (discussed in the
Multiverser® game system to help referees sort out game scenarios in which player characters travel in time) to unraveling the most popular of such movies.  An Event Horizon Hot Spot and Sci Fi Weekly Site of the Week which has won the author national recognition as an authority on time travel in fiction.
