It is said that the first ones to create those pacts were a faction of tieflings of Bael Turath, as they sought a way to free themselves from Asmodeus clutches, so they compacted with other entities to gain freedom from their recently forged infernal pacts that created their race. So, they pleaded themselves to a power that can rival even that of a god: the dreadfully powerful Far Realm entities. As you can imagine, Asmodeus was (and still is) not amused. That's why most of the present-day Nerath world's tieflings aren't slaves of the Nine Hells.
mmm... I have to post this in the lore section of the Nentir Vale forum.

Zeromaru X wrote:Regarding your question, if Thoon is a powerful Far Realm entity and want to grant "his" (?) power with a foolish mortal stupid enough to pact with that kind of creatures, yeah, that pact would be called "Star Pact" under 4e rules.
Big Mac wrote:Ah. So is "Star Pact" more correct for Nentir Vale than for Forgotten Realms and/or Dark Sun?
(If this is a Nentir Vale specific thing, I'll have to ask a moderator to shunt this topic over to the Nentir Vale forum. I thought it was a generic 4e thing.)
Zeromaru X wrote:Do the PHB entries for Warlocks give a list of entities that a Star Pact can be made with? Are there extra ones that get added in later PHBs or magazine content or is it a fixed list?
Does the 5e stuff cover the same ground as the 4e stuff, or does it go in a different direction?
Do Forgotten Realms and/or Dark Sun swap out any Far Realm powers for new ones customised for their own settings? (Or is this a universal thing?)
