D&D: Putting The Fling In Tiefling With Mordenkainen’s Tome Of Foes

3 Minute Read
May 8 2018

Just a couple of quick updates for you folks. In between attempting to solve the riddles of the Immortal Fortress and prepping for the Stream of Many Eyes, WotC has released another few previews of their upcoming book. Come see some of the new Tiefling options in Mordenkainen’s Tome of Foes.

This one’s coming to you courtesy of the Sage Advice website, where the Sage has gathered together images taken from the Fireside chat that went over some of the new Tiefling options you’ll find. Now all of the nine hells are getting an update for their Tiefling descendants. Below you’ll find rules for Tieflings from as far away as Glasya, Levistus, Mammon, and Cania (plus a little bit of Phlegethos as well.)

So get ready for some Infernal Affairs, but not the kind starring Andrew Lau and Alan Mak.

What did I just say?

Let’s kick things off with this sweet sweet preview image, taken from Kate and Nathan’s Fireside chat, previously seen only on Twitch.

We’ve got the Legacy of Phlegethos, which gives you a few of the more Face of the Party type spells, letting you charm your way out of trouble.


Glasya is really cool–this one seems a lot more for the stealthy/subterfuge character. Getting a small boost to Dex and being able to cast Disguise Self, Minor Illusion, and Invisibility for free is pretty amazing for folks looking to get in where they definitely shouldn’t.

Levistus’ Tiefling option is downright interesting. It’s this bizarre mix of Ice/Cold-based spells and an increase to Constitution that makes me think it’s more for Tankier Warlocks. Which also gives me hope that maybe, just maybe we’ll get to see what a hard-hitting Bladelock can look like.

Especially since Mammon proves to be an interesting choice for Tieflings who want to play with Arcane Powers. Especially since they find themselves perfectly equipped to play a Wizard specializing in weird random magic.

Finally we come to Cania, the last of our previewed Infernal bloodline today. Again, this one seems to be for an Int or Cha based caster, but in particular seems to play well with the sheer amount of fire these Tieflings can play around with.

And finally we have another sneak peek at one of the plant monsters in the book…


And of course, check back for more from Mordenkainen’s Tome of Foes, folks. In the meantime, happy adventuring!
