Hell Knight (Lesser Boss)
rating: +1+x

By Mailanka

These powerful, armored demons serve as the captains of Hell's legions. While not as intelligent as some of the greater demons, they are more than capable of holding off an entire band of experienced delvers on their own. With sufficient DR to stave off even the most powerful weapons and complete mastery of their blade, a party of Delvers should think twice before taking one on.

Hell Knights take to the front-lines, using their considerable defenses to hold off the Delvers while his other demons do the necessary work to take the players down. He's also very capable of killing off players.

Notes: 400 point Demon. Costs 40 energy to summon. Willing to Negotiate if not on a mission. The Hell-Rune Dark-sword is lootable (the dark armor is not): treat it as a fine, unbreakable Greatsword with a curse on it, determined by the GM. The curse often seems beneficial when it really isn't. Truly Evil.
