Post #7 - Necromancer reveal!

Postby Drildgen » 19 October 2016, 15:05

As we continue our reveal of the Undead Warband, let us introduce the cold, somber Necromancer!

When the thirst for power or fear of death twists the mind of a wizard it can lead him to study the black art of necromancy. A necromancer's magic is focused upon two effects: the destruction of life and the usurpation of death. Their spells can wither a warrior in his prime or restore animation to a corpse in its grave. Many of these men have been drawn into the service of the von Carsteins, enjoying the protection of the vampires against the Witch Hunters who would see them destroyed.
