Archfiends are fantastic creatures with many exceptions to whatever their type may be. Archfiends possess a particular suite of traits (unless otherwise noted in a creature’s entry) as summarized here.
- d12 HD, with maximized dice.
- Good BAB progression.
- Good Fortitude, Reflex, and Will saves.
- 8 + Intelligence modifier skill points per level.
- Archfiends do not need to otherwise follow restrictions as governed by their type; an outsider with the archfiend subtype may, for example, possess undead traits, or require Knowledge (arcana) checks for a Blue Mage to learn its abilities, even though the archfiend is an outsider.
