Unique to the Abyss, the dreaded Demonosaur is sometimes used by demon lords and princes as grounds patrollers, steeds, beasts of war, and even personal bodyguards and companions. The beast uses a claw-claw-bite routine in combat, and posesses the following natural demonic abilities as well: DARKNESS 10' RADIUS, DETECT MAGIC, DETECT INVISIBILITY, cause FEAR (as the wand), cause HORROR (as -4 Charisma). Its breath has the effects of a STINKING CLOUD, and can also scorch skin for 1-4 damage to all in its immediate presence.

Demonosaurs can be summoned to the Prime, but at double the normal cost due to their sheer size.

This beast is not quite a demon, because it doesn't have the innate mental capacity or magical nature of their Abysmal neighbors. It therefore cannot cast spells or use psionics, although it does have a state of mind equivalent to a permanent TOWER OF WILL psionic defense.

A Demonosaur resembles a jet black wingless drake, with dark grey abdominal plates and dorsal ripples. Its eyes appear black but glow a fiery red when gazed into.
