Master Necromancer

Drifting between the living and the dead, a Master Necromancer summons Undead minions to fight enemies on his behalf.

As a man follows the dark path of the Necromancer, he becomes ever more detached from his mortal roots. Morbidly questing after the secrets of death, a Necromancer deeply steeped in the lore of the dead stands on the threshold between worlds, neither wholly alive, nor one of the Undead. His body twisted with unholy power, his mind seared by the horrors he has witnessed, a Necromancer often has more in common with his lurching, moaning minions than with the living he seeks to slay.

Abilities

Master Necromancer
  • Arise! Do not falter! Do not crumble! Back to life once more!
  • Necromancers can not only marshall the dead, but leech the power from any souls fleeing their mortal remains.
  • The dead do not rest easily in the Old World. Those summoned by Vampires and Necromancers no longer have mortal concerns - they serve only their master's will.
  • The Dark Magic binding has failed. Both flesh and necromantic energy slough off the subjects leaving naught but dust.

Attributes

  • Causes Fear
    This unit frightens all enemy units, reducing their [[img:icon_morale]][[/img]]leadership when nearby. It is also immune to fear. Fear penalties do not stack.
  • Encourage
    This unit provides a [[img:icon_morale]][[/img]]leadership bonus to nearby allies. Units within range of both the [[img:icon_general]][[/img]]Lord's aura and an encouraging unit will receive the larger of the two bonuses.
  • Hide (forest)
    This unit can hide in forests until enemy units get too close.
  • Undead
    The unit is Undead (does not rout, immune to terror, becomes unstable when [[img:icon_morale]][[/img]]{{tr:morale}} is low). It will suffer from [[img:icon_attrition]][[/img]]attrition when moving through territory not owned by the Undead.
