    Default Where are all the demons?

    In all swords and sorcery games and books which have their own internal mythology and lore have demons of various types. Why are there none in EQ2 (night bloods don't count) , surely the gnolls, goblins, orc and various other sentient life in norrath have they ow mythology? so where is Norrath's equivelant to LoTR's Balrog, or the demons of chaos from the Warhammer series (not the MMo the table top game im referring to).

    Anyone able to answer my question? =/

    There isn't an equivalent.

    Not all Swords and Sorcery / Fantasy settings require by default a cosmology which includes demons and devils. EQ2 isn't behoved to have them just because they exist in: D&D /AD&D / <insert book / game series here>.

    Demons and Devils are used in Swords & Sorcery / Fantasy settings to illustrate the battle between good and evil. There is no overarching battle between good and evil in EQ2, just "threats from beyond." Because there's no overarching battle between good and evil, there's no need for Demons and Devils.

    EQ2 doesn't have demons as such...There are planes where diffrent gods reside and they have servants that might be considered demonic, but they ain't.Most of the threats to norrath come from either the void or other planets.

    There are no demons or angels in the EverQuest cosmology. The closest thing you will find are the minions of Innoruuk in the Shard of Hate and the minions of Cazic-Thule in the Shard of Fear and Temple of Cazic-Thule. The amygdalans are pretty cool. However these are not demonic beings, but creatures of the Planes of Power.

    Nah, Void denizens are more like alien beings from various other worlds which have been corrupted by the Void. If you do the book quests in OoLS they actually explain the origins of each void race. The grathok(the big purple ones with pincers) actually used to be some sort of lobster-man race. The Void itself is more like a buffer dimension between Creation and Oblivion.
