Demon Summoning Made Easy: Introduction
By Yvette Tan
You are listening to the “Demon Summoning Made Easy” audio guide. We recommend that you listen to the guide in full, as well as read carefully the accompanying literature, before you attempt to summon anything from the netherworld. We would also like to remind you of the waiver you signed upon purchasing this audio guide that absolves us of any liability should anything go wrong with the summoning. Souls lost to the fires of hell will not be forfeit.
There are many reasons people choose to summon demons. Some use demons to take revenge on their enemies. Others use them to acquire wealth and power in the mortal realm, while others use them for more mundane tasks, such as gardening. Whatever your reasons, we salute you and wish you well.

Before you begin, choose the demon you want to entice onto this plane. Our beginner’s manual offers a wide variety of infernal hosts that, if called forth correctly, can be easily convinced to do your bidding. Make sure that you have all your materials and ingredients within reach. Some of these may be hard to find, and it would not do to be scrambling for eye of newt in the middle of a summoning. Our online store carries most of the items needed. If you purchased this guide as part of our “Demon Summoning Made Easy” Starter Pack, you will find everything you need to summon a minor demon.
If you purchased our expansion kit, please note that your live black rooster will take 3-5 working days to ship. Please note that this is a beginner’s course, so the demons in our catalogue might not be suited to the task at hand. For demons who specialize in fire and brimstone, family curses, and pruning, we suggest taking a look at our Advanced Demonology Booster Pack.
Find a quiet, secure area where you will not be disturbed. Old warehouses work well, as do abandoned apartments. We do not recommend summoning in cemeteries until you are at least an apprentice grand mage, as the Gravedigger’s Union has filed a complaint on amateur demonologists accidentally destroying the landscaping. You will find that it would be a good idea to remain on your local gravedigger’s good side, especially if you plan to advance on to necromancy. It is also important to pick the right time. Our easy-to-read horological chart will help you choose the proper summoning time for your demon.
What you wear is also important. Demons are creatures of habit, and while it generally doesn’t matter what you wear, centuries of summoning have conditioned them to respond to certain symbols and styles of clothing. We recommend a long robe adorned with alchemical and/ or astrological symbols.
Our online store has a wide range of ceremonial robes of different cuts, designs, and material, all of them befitting the serious demonologist. Should you not have the budget for a robe, as most people using the starter kit to summon demons of wealth usually don’t, drawing stars with a marker on an old shirt will do. Glitter also helps, as many demons are attracted to shiny things.
Now that you have everything on hand, let us begin.
