Stranger Things first season featured a villain that was introduced to as the Demogorgon, a creature from Dungeons & Dragons. Lead rules designer Jeremy Crawford recently talked to D&D Beyond in a video about some of the demonic enemies coming in the upcoming Mordenkainen’s Tome of Foes supplement book. While he doesn’t name the Demogorgon, he does talk about the demon princes making a return and the Demogorgon was one of those princes. He is a very powerful creature, “a two-headed demon with mandrill-like heads and tentacles for arms.” ComicBook also points out that not only is the Demogorgon a demon prince, but it has the title, Prince of Demons putting it above the others.
The Demogorgon has made an appearance in the current 5th Edition ruleset in the Out of the Abyss adventure along with the other demon princes. The Tome of Foes, however, will extend the reach to more players who didn’t want to buy a pre-made adventure. Many more demons and devils will accompany the Demogorgon in the Tome of Foes and it’s going to be a huge hit.
Mordenkainen’s Tome of Foes will release May 29, 2018, pre-order it from Amazon now!
