The Hells' Belles Contest

She's just a devil woman
With evil on her mind
Beware the devil woman
She's gonna get you
"Devil Woman" by Cliff Richard

This month's contest is to describe and design a new layer of the Abyss or Baator, some creatures that exist there, and the layer's female ruler. Obviously, the Abyss has infinite layers to play with but with Baator (The Nine Hells) your ruler will have to usurp one of the Nine existing layers.

The contest begins with the posting of this thread and will continue until Noon, August 18, 2007 (Eastern US Time). Please remember, as always, to follow the general contest guidelines.

The Rules:

1.) You will be creating a layer of hell, some unique inhabitants of that layer, and the layer's female ruler.
2.) Your entry must include the following:
A description of the layer with appropriate planar traits and other stats.
A description of some inhabitant (or inhabitants) unique or native to that layer with appropriate stats.
A description of the female ruler complete with stats.
Entries should be set in the standard D&D cosmology, and not any particular setting (e.g. Forgotten Realms or Eberron.) Try to avoid referencing non-core/SRD books where possible, but obviously, this contest may require some reference to non-core material.
Each new entry should be started on a new thread here on the Contests board, dedicated to just that set of items and the discussion of it. Put the tag [LAYER] in front of the title of that thread. Any thread without this tag will not be officially entered.
Post here in the Entry Thread to let the mods know that you have completed your [LAYER] entry. We'll try to create a post with all the entries listed in one place for easy reference after the contest closes. You must post a link to your thread here in the ENTRY thread to be officially entered.
Categories of voting and judgment will include the following:

Best Layer
Best Inhabitants
Best Female Ruler
Funniest Entry
Rookie Award
Roland's Choice (Staff) Award

If you are eligible for the Rookie award (this is your first entry in an official GitP Design Contest) please note that in your post to the Entry Thread. Otherwise, everyone is eligible for everything else - no need to indicate anything.

If you have any questions or concerns, feel free to post them to this thread. Good luck!
