Most paladins are righteous heroes who spread light and justice throughout the multiverse, this is not true for paladins who swear themselves to this oath. The Oath of Hellfire is often sworn by paladins of a darker nature. The Oath of Hellfire speaks to individuals who wish to invoke the powers of hell to enforce their will upon the world. Paladins of this oath swear allegiance to an archdevil such as Asmodeus, Moloch, or Beelzebub. Paladins of this oath channel the flames of hell into their vicious attacks carrying pain and oppression with every strike. Paladins of this oath become adept at destroying the forces of light and manipulating people with a magically influenced word. Eventually paladins who swear themselves to the Oath of Hellfire learn to strike back at those who oppose them. As these paladins continue their shadowed path, serving a great archdevil they slowly change to resemble their diabolical masters, becoming resistant to many of the hazards present within The Nine Hells. Eventually a paladin of this oath will learn to unleash their true potential becoming a fiendish avatar to better serve Hell’s plans. Paladins of this oath are often known as Hell Knights. Lower ranking Hell Knights serve as shock troopers in the battle for dominion over the multiverse. The highest-ranking Hell Knights command armies of devils and leave devastation in their wake. Often as part of taking this oath a Hell Knight must sell their soul to the devil, they serve so that even in death they will continue to fight for their dark lord. Paladins who swear themselves to this oath become diabolical masters of the battlefield.
Tenets of Hellfire
The tenets of this oath are enforced to invoke loyalty and brutal efficiency in those who follow this path. Backstabbing is in a devil’s very nature and these tenets are meant to prevent paladins from practicing the same brand of betrayal that devils utilize themselves.
• Betray All But I. Lies, deceit and betrayal are tools to be used to further your own goals but if you turn these tools against your master, be prepared to be annihilated.
• Bring Glory To Hell. When you defeat your foes, or when you do battle, bring glory to hell so the multiverse may quake before it.
• Obey Your Master. To disobey your fiendish master is to die, obey every command
