The necromancer is the darkest of classes. Almost necessarily evil, this second tier branch of magic use typically takes on the worship of a deity of death in order to help in their work among the dead. Alternatively, a cleric could take this path, gaining magical ability and leaving combat by the wayside. Necromancers retain their magic-user abilities, but are not generally suited for direct combat, rather wielding a force of undead in battle. The necromancer class is automatically a fanatic of his deity and so can gain god-granted abilities and skills as normal abilities and skills.

SoulDrainThe decision to become a necromancer is not made lightly.  Whether in a moment of rage or in a time of derangement and desperation, emotion can drive a mage or a cleric to seek out the god of death.  They may acude to death to destroy their foes, to preserve their loved ones, or to empower them to create a better world.  Whether their origin is in magic or religion, they will be devout to their god of death, for a while, if their despair is not too much.
