A dervish is a creature that can be summoned from Hell by a practitioner in summoning, either pure magical or through arcane magicks.



Semievil once summoned thirty-six dervishes by accident when he grew frustrated and starts cursing. At the time he was a sorcerer[Ext 1] character class[Ext 2] from Dungeons & Dragons[Ext 3]. He used the fire-elementals he also summoned to destroy all but one oft he dervishes before an arch demon wiped out the elementals[NeS1 1].


Britt's Commentary

"Originally a dervish may well be a reference to the dervish cutthroats[Ext 4] from the EverQuest[Ext 5] game, as Semievil333 the Writer was a big fan. Alternatively they are a reference to the dervish[Ext 6] humans from Dungeons & Dragons[Ext 7]." ~ Britt the Writer
