Dissidents in the Seven Cities, Necromancers were first persecuted and hunted. However today, they stand in the rear of waves of undead armies, countless in number, infinitely obedient and immune to fear or pain. Heroes from Necropolis can raise dead enemies to reinforce their ranks and replace their own fallen lines thanks to their racial ability: Necromancy.
As all members of House Eterna, Ebon Knights can raise the dead to reinforce their army after each battle, but their talents are best used on the battlefield itself, as they can leverage the full extent of warcries, warfare units, offensive maneuvers and spells to send their enemies to Asha. They are also experts of dark magic, casting terrifying spells to weaken their foes even more.

Death Knights are the spearheads of the Undead armies, usually tasked with expanding the Necromancer’s dominion.

But while they are good administrators they remain masters of Necromancy, able to raise large armies of skeletal regiments to serve their purpose.

As patient as death itself, Bone Guards are the protectors of Heresh. Masters of Necromancy, they can raise and control Undead armies, but they also know when to negotiate the surrender of their enemies instead of killing them.

Emissaries of Asha, Magic Heroes of Necropolis also master the secret art of Necromancy, focusing on the erosion of the body and domination of the spirit.

The Wizards of House Eterna are powerful spellcasters, using dark, prime and water magic to terrify, hurt, slow or freeze their enemies, before raising their corpses to reinforce their own troops.

Embalmers are the keepers of balance. Educated and passionate, they have an interest for both the dead and the living.

Masters of time, Archons learned the art of Necromancy from Belketh, the Angel of Death, himself. They still use dark magic and even fire magic from time to time, but they are scholars first and foremost, students of Asha’s eternal cycle of Life and Death. Less fanatical than the other members of the Spider Cult, they act defensively in battle, and wear down their foes with infinite patience.
