Making a Evil Demon Blade
Abilities: Strength is obviously important for the Demon Blade, as it makes his opponents easier to hit, and his hit more dangerous. Charisma determines how many and how strong your spells are. Dexterity is good for more armor class. Constitution is extremely useful for hit points, of course, and the concentration skill.
Races: Human, Half-Elf, Drow.
Alignment: See deity.
Starting Gold: None. Prefers to Rape and pillage for that.

Spells: A Demon Blade casts Dark spells, which is a sick cross between arcane and divine, but are neither. They cast as a Warmage in that when they gain a new spell level, they automatically know all their spells of that level. Dark magic is considered arcane for the purposes of meeting requirements for prestige classes.
Like other spellcasters, Demon Blades can cast only a certain number of spells of each spell level per day. Their base daily spell allotment is given on Table: Demon Blade. In addition, they receive bonus spells per day if they have a high Charisma score.
Casting Like Eschew Materials but greater, The demon-Blade need not the materials required for his spells.
Levels At every 2nd Spell-Blade level, they gain one more Spell level.
