Exterminis: Reign of Destruction

Spirits, Demons, and Monsters

There are three types of  supernatural enemies to thwart the player characters in Exterminis: Reign of Destruction. These are demons, spirits, and warpchanged animals. No natural or normal animals will attack armed adventurers. 

Demons are creatures who arrived through portals opened up during the cataclysm. Almost all of the enemies in the world are demons. Beings that might be natural creatures in other fantasy worlds, such as goblins, kobolds, orcs, and so forth are demons in the world of Exterminis, as are almost all of the monsters found in other worlds. This is in addition to the entities that actually look like demons and devils. Victory over demons is worth two karma per rank of the demon

Spirits are astral entities summoned by conjurers. These include all undead creatures, spirits who inhabit physical bodies such as golems and elementals, and spirits that stay in a ghostly, noncorporeal form. Victory over spirits is worth two karma per rank of the spirit.

The third kind of enemy are warpchanged animals. These are natural animals that have been corrupted, twisted, and driven insane by contact with the warp, an invisible, chaotic energy that floats across the land. Victory over Warpchanged animals is worth one karma per rank of the animal. Warpchanged animals do not have any special powers like demons and spirits do.

Power Ranks

Demons, spirits, and warpchanged animals are ranked from 1-10. This rank determines everything about them, from characteristics to damage to the number of special powers they possess. The higher the rank, the more powerful they are, and the more karma they are worth. 

In the chart below, Rank is the power level of the spirit, % is the percentile of all the spirit’s characteristics, and Powers is the number of special powers the spirit has (see listing below).

Rank % Powers
1 50 0
2 50 1

4 60 3
5 70 4
6 70 4
7 80 5
8 80 5
