Overview

Title: Necromancer
Trained By: Alchemist, Apothecary, Mage, Scribe

The Necromancer studies the dark arts - raising the dead, creating zombies out of lifeless corpses to do their bidding and attempting to create the unnatural.

Most necro spells are difficult to cast - in addition to necromancy, you will also require a magery skillcheck (magery is checked first). If you fail the magery check, you do not lose reagents but if you fail the necromancy, check you will lose the reagents.


Codex Damnorum

The Codex Damnorum is the necromancer's spellbook. Unlike the druid's runebag which can be made, the necro's Codex can only be found, typically on undead-type monsters. Necromancers will also require a lich staff if they want to cast the spells from their powerwords instead of from the Codex. This is also found on the undead, typically liches.

Necro scrolls are found on typically undead loot. They can not be crafted. Once you have found the correct scroll, you must use Inscription to put it into the Codex. If you fail the inscription skillcheck, the scroll will be destroyed.

To use a powerword instead of opening the Codex to cast, you must be holding a lich staff and say the word exactly. Your codex must be on your top level of your backpack.

You can perform other actions while the Codex is open.

The Codex is not newbified. If you die, it will have to be retrieved from your corpse.
