Monster memory[]


These foul creatures have turned their attention to the creation of the undead. Bonding the souls of recently died creatures to their corpses, they strive to create an army to serve their every whim. Even though they are shunned by most good people, there are always those who would not see the error of their ways. If you ever meet necromancers, beware, for their undead slaves are seldom far.

Females only

She has learnt to use powers no living thing can touch without tainting their soul. Necromancers are hated everywhere and almost every community kills them as soon as they are found out. A hunted soul looks out of those eyes, knowing that for her even death will not mean deliverance from the suffering she brought over herself in her living days.
