Diablerie is the actual skill used to summon demons. It allows the demonologist the loosest of ideas on how to summon a demon, how to bind a demon, and how to bargain with the demon. The higher the level of diablerie, the more powerful the demon that can be summoned and the more chance of success he has in summoning a lesser demon (common demons are measured in “circles” from 1 to 8. The higher the circle, the more powerful the demon and the harder it is to control).
To gain a level of this skill, the character must have successfully summoned and bargained with a demon of the circle equal to the level of diablerie sought.
May not be bought above level.
This skill may be bought in ascending levels [to level VIII].
