Special Thanks
This book is dedicated to Rose Bailey, the creator and co-developer of Demon: The Descent. She did the initial outlining and setup for this book, but scheduling issues got me into the developer’s seat instead of her. I hope that I’ve done her proud with the work I’ve done on her game, and it’s been a real privilege to work on Demon with her.

Summary Edit

From the Onyx Path catalog:
Does the mouse in the maze think:
“Today I shall try a different route. Go left instead of right. Chew through a wall. Refuse to run.”?
Does it? I think not.
I think the mouse runs because it only knows the maze. It follows the corridors like a charge following a circuit.
It knows all routes lead to the same end.
You know it, too. You left, but you’ll come back. This is your end”.
- The Triptych, Messenger Angel

  • Expanded information on angels, including a look at how Incarnations apply to them
