Necromancer

Necromancer #

A Necromancer is someone who’s followed a forbidden (or at least socially unacceptable) path towards magic dominance. Their purview is death and undeath, and their command over both leaves many uneasy.

Necromancers often make a point of hiding their abilities, often disguising themselves as wizards. Some were wizards, in fact, and use that knowledge well. While many Necromancers simply crave power, others were cursed in such a way as to lead them down that path, were raised from the dead themselves and maintained control, or got there through veneration of a deity whose purview is death. Some might have come from a different priestly tradition that isn’t well understood by the commonfolk.

Examples of Necromancer Skills: Power-Hungry, Former Wizard, Former Cleric, Touched by Death, Returned from Beyond, Death Shaman.

A typical Necromancer Skill should cover at least some of these:

  • Brew a tincture.
  • Conduct an autopsy.
  • Get a crowd’s attention.
  • Inspect traces of the arcane.
  • Intimidate someone.
  • Perform a ritual.
  • Recall a historical fact.
  • Remember laws for a region.
  • Research something.
  • Trick someone into believing something.

Necromancer Skill uses are augmented by Cantrips.

Uncommon Terms in Necromancer Abilities #

Necromancies: Occult incantations and forbidden methods involved with raising the dead and channeling forces. Necromancers may prepare a certain number of these in a day.

Blaspheme: A word in an ability indicating that using the ability in question provokes a Blasphemy check (see Blasphemy) after the ability has finished resolving.

Class Features #

All Necromancers have Focus, Academic Occultism, Summoner, Wasting Away, and Blasphemy..

Focus #

Necromancers use Focus to power many of their abilities. Every Necromancer has 3 Focus in Adventurer Tier, 4 Focus in Champion Tier, and 5 Focus in Epic Tier. It’s restored during a Quick Rest.

Once per turn, you can spend 1 Focus as a free action on or outside your turn to give 1 Disadvantage to an attack against your MD.

  • Champion Perk: If the attack against your MD hits, your target takes psychic damage equal to double your level.
  • Epic Perk: You have one extra maximum Focus.

Academic Occultism #

In your studies, you’ve brushed up against the formal Wizard school of Occultism. You gain the two Wizard cantrips under Occultism, Eulogy and Wither. You can perform rituals with them to achieve stronger effects by Pushing your Limits.

Eulogy
Cantrip

You can use this on a recently dead body to know roughly how they died.

Adventurer: You can tell the general cause of death through feeling their last seconds on your own body.

Champion: You get a shadowy glimpse of the character’s last thoughts, including some generalities of the last things they saw or heard.

Epic: You can see the character’s last moments clearly.

Wither
Cantrip

You can make plant life in an area wither and die. This probably won’t affect intelligent plant life, but will certainly make it very mad.

Adventurer: You can kill something grass-like or make a bush die.

Champion: You can reduce some overgrowth or kill a field of crops.

Epic: You can rot out a forest or kill a settlement’s worth of crops.

  • Adventurer Perk: You may take Draining Touch (see 1st level spells).

Summoner #

Many Necromancy abilities summon creatures. Summoned creatures act after your turn, have one move action and one standard action, can make opportunity attacks, and do not add the escalation die to attack rolls by default. Unless otherwise specified, they are destroyed at the end of the encounter. For the purpose of Augmentations, their melee attacks count as your melee attacks and their spells count as your spells.

You can use your Necromancer class skill to raise a skeleton or summon a spirit for a short period of time. If you want it to accomplish anything beyond small actions or distraction, you’ll have to use this with a ritual (via Pushing your Limits).

  • Adventurer Perk: Once per day, one summoned creature or group of summoned mooks can last through to a second encounter, but it loses half its current health (in the case of mooks, this is in total as a group, so it would lose members if there’s more than one left) at the end of the first encounter.

Wasting Away #

Necromancy requires a certain proximity to death’s door to be used properly. When using Necromancies, your Volition has a penalty equal to your Vitality. You may spend 1 Focus as a free action to negate this penalty until the end of your turn.

You’ve learned to cling to life as a result of this focus. It takes five failed death saves for you to die instead of four.

  • Adventurer Perk: If you have 0 Vitality, you may choose to reduce that to -1 Vitality (this is multiplied by tier as usual for recoveries) to gain +1 Volition when using spells. If not, you may take damage equal to your level instead of spending 1 Focus to negate the Volition penalty.
  • Champion Perk: You gain a bonus to death saves equal to escalation.
  • Epic Perk: A successful death save now counts as a crit (you may act immediately).

Blasphemy #

Many Necromancies and Necromancer Talents are an affront to natural existence, and using them can upset or off-put allies. When a Blasphemy check is called for, roll 3d6 and compare the result to 9, 11, or 13 as indicated. If it’s lower than that value, after the ability finishes resolving, the escalation die is lowered by 1 (or if it’s 0, you lose a recovery).
  • Adventurer Perk: You may spend Focus to succeed at a Blaspheme check you failed. This costs 1 Focus for 9+, 2 Focus for 11+, or 3 Focus for 13+.
  • Champion Perk: On a failed Blaspheme check, an ally may volunteer to lose a relationship die or recovery in exchange for no negative consequences otherwise.
  • Epic Perk: Once per day, you gain 1 advantage on all Blaspheme checks during an encounter.

Talents #

You underwent some amount of training as a Wizard before adopting Necromancy. You gain one of the basic Wizard cantrips (Light, Arcane Mark, or Prestidigitation) as well as one cantrip from any Wizard talent other than Necromancy.

You may spend 1 Focus as a free action to change the damage type of a spell to any type other than psychic, force, or radiant.

Arcane Training #

You underwent some amount of training as a Wizard before adopting Necromancy. You gain one of the basic Wizard cantrips (Light, Arcane Mark, or Prestidigitation) as well as one cantrip from any Wizard talent other than Necromancy.

You may spend 1 Focus as a free action to change the damage type of a spell to any type other than psychic, force, or radiant.

  • Adventurer Perk: You gain another cantrip from the choices above. You may now change the damage type to psychic, force, or radiant if you reduce the damage dice by one size (or halve the damage if it isn’t rolled).
  • Champion Perk: You gain both remaining cantrips from the choices above.
  • Epic Perk: You no longer need to spend Focus to convert to any damage type other than psychic, force, or radiant. You also no longer reduce the die size for psychic, force, or radiant (though you still have to spend 1 Focus to change to those types).

Cackling Soliloquist #

If you spend your move and quick action as well when casting a spell that normally takes a standard action, it’s 13+ Recharge instead of Daily (or you reduce the Recharge value by 2).
  • Adventurer Perk: When you use Cackling Soliloquist and spend 1 Focus, any engaged enemies are Shaken until the end of their next turn before you cast the spell (including before any Opportunity Attacks are made).
  • Champion Perk: If the spell missed or rolled minimum on the number of targets or summons, you may roll its recharge as an Interrupt before the start of your next turn. If it fails, you may roll its Recharge at the next short rest as well.
  • Epic Perk: Once per day, you can steal the escalation die when you use this. Until the end of your next turn, no ally or enemy can use it, but it counts as 8 for you, and all Blaspheme checks automatically pass.

Close to the Veil #

You don’t need to eat, sleep, or breathe (though some magical effects can still asphyxiate you). You can choose to count as undead if it would be an advantage to you to do so for the purpose of abilities that specifically care about that.

Every spell with Form in its name is 13+ Recharge instead of Daily when used on yourself.

  • Adventurer Perk: You have Resist Necrotic 13+.
  • Champion Perk: You can fool unintelligent undead into thinking you’re also undead with no effort (you can also fool intelligent undead, but you’ll still have to roll).
  • Epic Perk: Undead that aren’t under the direct control of a necromantic icon can’t attack you unless you attack them first.

Deathspeaker #

You can talk to the spirits of the dead, through a seance that takes about 5 minutes to set up and perform, and ask a handful of questions of them. These can be specific spirits of specific people if you have a nearby corpse in any condition. Spend 1 Focus and have the GM roll your Necromancer class skill secretly against Adventurer, Champion, or Epic difficulty. On a success, you get mostly correct information. On a Natural Odd success, the information is intentionally or unintentionally misleading (though still largely correct) or cryptic.
  • Adventurer Perk: When you use this, you may designate one ally to be one Initiative band higher during the next combat.
  • Champion Perk: Once per day, when you use this, you can choose to automatically succeed (though you still have a 50% chance of misleading information).
  • Epic Perk: When you use this, you give 1 Disadvantage to all attacks against you during your next encounter while Escalation is 0.

Lust for Power #

Your methods are controversial, but effective. You gain +1 Volition with spells, but you create Twists when you use a 2 on a Positive relationship die or a 5 on a Negative relationship die (in addition to 1’s or 6’s respectively).
  • Adventurer Perk: Once per day, you may make a 13+ Blaspheme check instead of creating a Twist from a relationship die if you use one in combat.
  • Champion Perk: When you use a relationship die that creates a Twist, you may give the roll it’s being used on 1 advantage or disadvantage.
  • Epic Perk: Once per relationship die per day, as a free action, you may reroll a relationship die if it wouldn’t create a Twist. No matter the reroll’s result, it creates a Twist when used.

Redeemer #

Unlike many Necromancers, you attempt to maintain an ethical approach to summoning the undead. Your Necromancies with Summon in the name no longer have Blaspheme, and the summoned undead are no longer Weak to radiant damage.
  • Adventurer Perk: Your Summoned undead may deal radiant damage if it would be advantageous to do so.
  • Champion Perk: If a spell that deals necrotic damage has Blaspheme (inherent to casting the spell and not as part of its description, Easy or Normal only), you may ignore it. If you do, change the damage type to cold and reduce the damage dice by one size (or halve the damage if it isn’t rolled).
  • Epic Perk: You may choose to deal damage equal to double your level to an undead summon under your control to reroll a Blaspheme check.

Souldrinker #

You take a little part of most enemies you kill as they pass on. During a turn where you’ve killed a non-mook enemy, as a quick action, you may choose to consume part of its soul. If you do, you heal HP equal to your level. You can drink more deeply to heal HP equal to double your level, but make an 11+ Blaspheme check if you do. Any abilities involving speaking with or getting information from this enemy from beyond the grave gain 1 disadvantage.
  • Adventurer Perk: You may allow a nearby ally to heal instead of you when you use this.
  • Champion Perk: If you kill more than one non-mook enemy during your turn prior to using this, heal 1d4 x Level instead (or 1d8 x Level if drinking more deeply).
  • Epic Perk: You may regain 1 Focus instead of restoring HP (regain 1d3 if you drink more deeply) when you do this.

Thrallmaster #

You have a knack for bending the undead to your will. You gain Command Undead as a bonus spell.

Command Undead
Spell, At-Will, Standard
Provokes, Spend 1 Focus

Choose one nearby summoned undead (or group of undead mooks) that you control or a nearby undead enemy.

If you choose a nearby summoned undead or group of undead mooks you control, they may take a turn immediately in addition to the turn they normally take after your turn.

If you choose a nearby undead enemy, make an attack vs their MD.

Hit: The target is Confused (11+ save ends). If the target is double-strength or triple-strength, it’s 9+ save ends.

Miss: Regain your spent Focus.

Special: This ignores any penalties to Volition from Wasting Away.

  • Adventurer Perk: Your summoned undead add the escalation die to their attacks. When you use Command Undead, you may compel the target to answer a short question or follow one non-damaging suggestion instead of attacking its allies while confused. (If used out of combat, make one 11+ save per question/suggestion).
  • Champion Perk: When you use Command Undead, if all attack rolls miss, you regain 1 Focus.
  • Epic Perk: You may choose to keep one summoned undead creature after an encounter where you cast a summon spell. It doesn’t regain health between encounters unless you spend one of your recoveries during a short rest to heal it.

Necromancies #

You can prepare Level / 2 + 4 (round down) Necromancies during a Full Rest. You can only take Necromancies of a level less than or equal to your current level.
  • Epic Perk: You may prepare one extra Necromancy, but if you do, you start the day with 1d3+1 fewer Recoveries.

1st Level #

Channel Life
Spell, At-Will, Standard

Hit: The target takes weapon damage equal to your level.
