Diabolism is a philosophical interest in understanding, serving, and promoting the organizational structure of Hell. Diabolists do not venerate Asmodeus or his Archdevils in particular, preferring to come to a greater understanding of the hierarchies, structures, and philosophies which are the underpinnings of their interactions. They believe that Hell is the most ordered and rational society in the Great Beyond and they wish to transform themselves and their surroundings to model this perfect structure. Diabolists understand the necessity of opposing forces, and – more often than not – seek to respect the powers that govern one of the best established hierarchies of lawful order in all the planes. Most do not see this respect as evil, simply as a necessity to maintaining functional order.
