Death, the final chapter in human life. For centuries people of all the worlds have been studying it. For some this has become an obsession and a way of life. The Necromancers are the ones who draw upon the dead for their magical powers, skulking in graveyards looking for fresh corpses, and some even worship death as a deity in itself.
The Necromancers are feared throughout the universe, few beings can put such terror into a human as a Necromancer with his powers of death. Have you ever come across a walking dead? If you have, you can be sure it was a Necromancer who called it back from the dead. Because no one but the Necromancers and the gods have this power, to undo death.
The Necromancers are people of magic, using most of their time studying this arcane art. Because of this, they are not accustomed to wearing armour, and most of their spells will not work when wearing heavy armour. This is especially true of armour that covers the body and head, and of course shields that hinder the movement of the hands, which are needed to cast spells.
