Vaguely humanoid and extremely cunning, the Endo-Daemons are wicked beings spawned within the mad labyrinths of Mudarra, a fractured ante-planar fragment caught-up within the Cerulean Vortex.

Originally, the Endo-Daemons were intended to serve as yet another series of synthetic shock troops in yet another squabble between two adepts, but the Endo-Daemons determined that the most expedient way to carry out their work was to kill their creator. This did in fact end the conflict, and it did conform to the parameters established by their creator who has since become a text-book cautionary example of unbridled hubris coupled with lack of fore-thought. The Endo-Daemons have since gone on to colonize a number of fragmentary planar remnants and generally do not interfere in the matters of other beings unless summoned.

Alas for the Endo-Daemons, they were developed from materials that their creator had pro-actively bequeathed to posterity, and so everything necessary to create or summon these beings is fairly well known and available even to first-year sorcery students. Endo-Daemons have become one of the first creatures that most sorcerers attempt to summon and even after achieving a fairly high level, many spell-casters still rely upon these beings as cheap, literal-minded transplanar mercenaries.

Bowing to the realities of supply and demand, and realizing a good thing when they are caught-up within it, the Endo-Daemons have begun to develop a variety of sub-types including pike-men, archers, petardists, artillerists, and others, all available by way of a simple summoning spell that even the most humble Endo-Daemon foot-soldier can teach to its summoner. For a small fee, of course.

  1. Somehow I missed this clever post. Nasty idea, planar summonable demons who are developing new product lines on their own.

  2. Yep. Endo-Daemons are real go-getters and consummate self-marketers. They will happily customize each order to the customer's satisfaction, but there's no money back guarantee...
