A rod of demonology provides you with all the tools you need to gain access to moderately powerful demonic support. Call Imp can create several weak but willing minions capable of taking down jellies, mummies, and other opponents you'd rather not face yourself. Summon Demon generates significantly more powerful allies, useful well into the late game, but be aware that these will occasionally arrive hostile. Fortunately, the rod's final spell (Abjuration) is perfectly suited for sending unfriendly summons back to whence they came. While Call Imp is effective even without significant Evocations training, the other two spells are best avoided until you've gotten some skill under your belt.

Although this rod is considered evil by the good gods, they don't mind if you use it for Abjuration.
