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