Myself and one of my players who I frequently let CO-DM for me were wondering if there were any rules in D&D 3.5 for a low level player becoming a demon prince.

The demon prince should give powers similar to a Balor or Abraxas The Unfathomable, but appropriate for a lower-level party.

These rules dont have to be core and can be home-brew.

To clarify atm the party is around level 6 to 7 and will be most likely getting to level 12 in the next session.(They are fighting in a tournament with one on one opponents so they get all the xp to themselves).

I intend for the player to have gained something similer to a divine spark but have it instead be a demon lord spark. It would essentially be a level 0 spark where he would maybe gain a template or a prestige class called demon lord, and then work his way to demon prince at level 20 of that class. Along the way he would gaining power in the class. (With the party is around 6 to 7 now, there is only one player that will have this chance to become that class. The prize from winning the tournament will be the chance to become that class/prestige class).

  • \$\begingroup\$ Hello, and welcome to the site! I would suggest taking a look at the faq and tour, there's a lot of useful information in there about the kinds of questions that fit best with this site. This question is pretty unclear as it stands. I would suggest pulling out the specific problem you're trying to solve, and avoid any extraneous detail. It sounds like the core question is "Are there rules for a low-level character to become a god or demon prince?" If so, you should edit your question to focus on that specific topic, so we can more easily understand what you want. \$\endgroup\$

  • \$\begingroup\$ The most important details that I can see that are either missing or unclear: The level of the party, the specific kind of prince/godhood you're trying to use, and what your DMing structure is. If you are co-DM, do you both have to agree on this, or does one of you have authorial control? Also, I'd suggest removing the lines asking for "suggestions". Terms like "Any suggestions?" are red flags here, and typically indicate a kind of question that doesn't work well in our format. \$\endgroup\$

    \$\begingroup\$ This is a lot closer to a solid question. The one thing still unclear to me is what you mean by "demon prince". Do you have specific rules in mind, or do you just like the flavour of someone being a demon prince, and you're looking for rules to go along with that? I'm asking for more details here because it's pretty clear what "divine rank 0" means, but I don't know of any equivalent kind of template for a demon prince. \$\endgroup\$

    \$\begingroup\$ Is the question What powers should a low-level PC god possess? or is it How can a low-level PC achieve godhood? \$\endgroup\$ Jan 10, 2016 at 4:47
