Not surprisingly, the sphere of necromancy concerns death and the undead. Communicating with the dead or raising them as ghastly servants both come under the influence of this rather creepy sphere.

Uses Edit

In combat, a player with this power may be able to drain the life out his or her enemies, or summon living dead minions. Outside combat its uses are comparatively few (but quite powerful, in some quests).

Combat EffectsEdit

Necromancy effects cannot be resisted.

Wraith TouchEdit

Necromancy's Instant Effect is called Wraith Touch. When it's cast successfully, the combat screen will say:

  • Your wraithlike touch sends a deathly chill through your enemy

This replaces your normal attack.

Summon UndeadEdit

Necromancy's Sustained Effect is Summon Undead. When you cast it, you will get this message:

  • You summon (a/an) (Undead Summoned) to assail your enemy...

On following rounds you will get a version of this message:

  • Your summoned (Undead Summoned) (mercilessly/savagely/relentlessly) (attacks/assails) your foe...

The undead will distract your foe, giving you a bonus to MR:

  • +(see chart) to your Melee Rating this round.

You will continue to attack alongside your undead.

There are a total of ten types of undead creatures which may be summoned. Testing suggests that all the single-name undead have approximately the same strength and that the two "Greater" undead have approximately the same strength. It is possible to summon any type of undead at any level of Necromancy. The MR bonus seems to be affected both by the strength of the undead and by your level of Necromancy, and also varies from one round to the next even for the same undead.

*The ranges are the raw results of testing. The value in parentheses is the dice roll that most closely fits the range and average found in testing.

  • Lesser = Cadaver, Corpse, Ghast, Ghoul, Skeleton
  • Greater = Greater Spectre, Greater Wraith
  • GP = Ghoul Prince
  • AG = Abyssal Ghast
  • WL = Wraith Lord

Irrespective of level, when against undead foes, the description is:

You use your necromantic powers to attempt to destroy your undead foe...
