    If demons breed, do they lay eggs? You could gut a pregnant one after killing it and take its baby or egg. Then raise and train it to do what you wish. It could work like a stronghold thing. Every so often you would have to do quests in order to keep it alive, fed, trained or bound to you. The whole time it could be growing and getting stronger. Just like your pc going up in xp. There could be some real cool sidequests like going to other planes to find it food or capturing female demons and milking them or whatever. I don't know what demons eat but I'm sure whatever it is, that could make interesting side quests.

    Heh, deathbringer, and here I was thinking that the guys who wrote the script for Planescape: Torment needn't worry about their jobs... Somehow, I suppose at least some might be created in something like breeding pods (remember the LotR movie?) although I suppose different ones have different methods. Judging by the fact that there are a few tieflings and cambions here and there quite a few must reproduce in a way reasonably close to the mammal one.
    Another possible idea for how a demon might join your party is as a result of a kind of a quest - for example, if you do not do something it will kill you or a certain NPC, and if you do, it will have to obey you for a certain time period. A bet, for example.

    An NPC succubus like Fall-From-Grace on PS:T would be cool. Or an Aasimar or Tiefling. Something with wings, anyway :)

    If they are allowing subraces such as asamir and teifling then they better have an extensive list to choose from... And other logical choices other than demons becuase everybody will be playing one... which is corny consitering they are EXTREMLY rare in faerun and would usually be stoned to death on sight...

    Nah, they'd have to wait their turn after the mobs finished burning the half-drows to an even darker, crispier hue...
    BTW, that might be an interesting race, if they allow it. Then again, why would they... normal drow usually do well enough in the eye-candy department.

    I could imagine that a mage (maybe a certain kind of specialist) could learn to turn himself into a demon for a short time, or slowly turn into a lower demon while leveling up.

    ...like the palemaster class, for example.

    when leveling, a interesting thing would be to add demon monster class - or devil monster class.

    but with restrictions, of course. an 3th fighter/2nd balor would be unreal ;)

    -Anyone can summon a demon?
    Yes.In fantasy novels like Drizzt Do'Urden series.
    No.In Ad&d settings.You should be exceptional at arcane or divine arts(which requieres you to be some kind of magiccaster)or you should have highly exceptional magical items.(Drawing a protection circle or knowing the demons real name ONLY helps)

    -A demon race playable or a demonkin bound to you?
    Don't think so..Since people of forgotten realms doesn't tolerate demons(reasonable thing)Think travelling in Baldur's Gate(the city i mean) as a/with a balor.Probably all the powerful npc will try to banish or capture you.
    Maybe playing as a lower demon or having one bound could be possible but still hard i guess...

    in the AD+D book Tieflings and Aasimar (something to that effect), it claims Cambions are the name for something that is half-demon while Nephilim is something that is half-celestial. Tiefling is anything that has demonic blood without a demonic parent, while Aasimar is anything that has celestial blood without a pure celestial parent.

    Nephilim and Cambion get much better abilities and a much nastier level adjustment then simple Tieflings or Aasimar.

    I like the idea of having a demon race. I made a similar comment in another thread that I'd love to upgrade lots of things in BG 3 -- including races and classes. In BG 2 I will frequently play as a monster or other creature, (by changing the image) just because I like playing as those types of characters.

    So there you are with your pet demon/devil etc. Now we go to a shop and drat, everone is gone. Moments later the town wizards come and they do not ask questions. Or, drat the demon does not fit through the door. The lesser more, I will say it since most of us like me are male, human female centerfolds looking ones will work nice. But it is all in gameplay, questing, and dialogue where the strengt lies.

    A strong pet devil/demon, no, a quest wherein you get saddled up whit one, yes. Make ik comical, not just plain evil.

    After much thought how about this: one bound by a god to wander for a fixed time to be a pacifist. not able to harm a fly. The frustration it will vent.

    A female Cambion would work (if you can get past the +4 level adjust) as female Cambions have much in common with Succubi or the Erinyes appearance wise (Male Cambions much more ferocious and imposing). A cambion is also far more likely then a pure blooded Baazteu or Tanar'ri to take player classes instead of NPC classes. With a +4 to STR, +4 to DEX, +2 to CON, +4 to INT and +2 to CHA, there really isn't any class they couldn't do well and because they get such extensive stat adjusts and the bonus 2d8 they get at level one, a Cambion Wizard/Barbarian (or fighter if she's a Baazteu) can really take care of itself in any situation.

    It might not be of a demon's best interest to mess in a big city. It could draw the attention of powerful, heavenly beings from the upper planes. Demons DON'T want to mess with them.
