Talk:Demon summoning

As a chaotic character, I sacrificed one of my own race (elf), and summond the demon lord Yeenoghu. The result was a peaceful demon lord, teleporting next to me every few steps, just getting underfoot. Not very lordly behavior. I finally had to escourt him off the level, just to keep him out of my hair.

What is the reason/value in summoning a demon? -- AngleWyrm 16:42, 2 November 2007 (UTC)

You can summon Juiblex as peaceful, and not have to deal with him later (or as hostile, if you're not chaotic, and fight him on a level where you can pray); but Juiblex is the easiest named demon to kill, if you know his Achilles' heel. Once both Yeenoghu and Juiblex have been summoned, later summonings get a random demon, which might sometimes be a foocubus. This takes a lot of patience to really do well. The bottom line is, unless you're chaotic and going for foocubi, you probably don't want to sacrifice your own race.--Ray Chason 14:14, 29 October 2007 (UTC)
