Necromancer (Ultima I manual)
|Only appearance:||Ultima I|
Even before Mondain appeared in Sosaria, necromancers and their undead progeny had long plagued the lands. Although unskilled in ranged combat like their wizard brethren, they are cunning opponents and should not be taken lightly.
Necromancers were usually found on Sosaria's surface, having already loosed the skeletons and liches of their creation into the dungeons to roam and kill freely. With the defeat of Mondain, most of them were either exterminated or branched out into other areas of magical study.
The Necromancer is a mage whose specialty is the practice of the arcane arts that pertain to the dead. Practitioners of such a morbid specialty were naturally drawn to the foul Mondain as jackals are to the carrion of the plains.
