Demon Lord, Baphomet (3pp; Demon Lord of Beasts)

An aura of powerful evil permeates the area surrounding this demonic-looking creature. It stands twice the height of a normal man, has powerfully muscled arms and burning crimson eyes. Its body is covered in shaggy black fur and marred with what appear to be century-old battle scars. It wields a wicked-looking halberd.

Baphomet attacks using his bite, butting with his head, and slashing with his Huge halberd, Musileim. He is relentless in combat and rarely shows mercy to his opponents. Should he become bored with combat, he summons a slew of demons or minotaurs to dispatch of his opponents as he stands and watches the slaughter.

Baphomet’s natural weapons, as well as any weapons he wields, are treated as chaotic-aligned and evil-aligned for the purpose of overcoming damage reduction. His natural weapons are also treated as epic weapons for the purpose of overcoming damage reduction.

Rend Armor (Ex)

As a full-round action Baphomet can make a single attack with his halberd against a foe. If he hits, he pulls apart any armor worn by his foe. This attack deals 2d8+23 points of damage to the opponent’s armor.

Creatures not wearing armor are unaffected by this special attack. Armor reduced to 0 hit points is destroyed. Damaged armor may be repaired with a successful Craft (armorsmithing) check.


Unique Item: Musileim

Baphomet’s unique weapon is a Huge +4 unholy halberd of speed. He is able to wield the over-sized weapon without penalty.

Servants of Baphomet

Followers of Baphomet are usually minotaurs and fiendish minotaurs and consist of clerics, necromancers, and sorcerers or adepts. Devout followers of Baphomet are called Horned Ones and must sign a pact of evil with Baphomet. Horned ones are granted access to two of the following domains: Chaos, Evil, and War.


Environment any (Abyss)
Organization solitary or troupe (Baphomet plus 2–8 minotaurs or 3–6 fiendish minotaurs)
Treasure Double Standard

Baphomet is revered by minotaurs as their lord and deity. His iron keep is located within a large stone cavern on a desolate plane of the Abyss. It is said his castle is a maze of twisting rooms and corridors, with his personal throne room located at the heart of his maze keep. Those that have ventured there remember little about the place other than the never-ending corridors and maze of rooms.

Baphomet stands 12 feet tall and weighs about 4,500 pounds.
