- The Maleficia
- The Maleficia are Infernal powers that work, mechanically, somewhat similarly to Hermetic Arts. The caster combines one Unholy method (analogous to a Technique) and one Unholy power (analogous to a Form) to create Infernal effects.
- Ars Goetia
- The Goetic Arts deal with summoning spirits; most, but not all, are Infernally aligned. The Goetic Arts include summoning (goetic Art), ablating, binding, and commanding.
- Black Magic
- This chapter, contrary to what its title suggests, includes rules and background information for demon-hunters as well as diabolists. It includes Hermetic spells for dealing with demons. It describes cthonic magic, which straddles the boundary between the Magical and Infernal Realms, Goetic Magic, a Virtue that allows a magus to combine the Hermetic and Goetic Arts, and False Magic, a means by which Infernal powers can imitate other magical traditions.

- There are nine traditions, each described with a page or two of text and referring to rules from previous chapters.
- The Luciferans
