Re: Crusader's Companion Necromancer

Thanks for the thoughts all, they are much appreciated. Seems there are more than enough Necromancers to go around.

On another note, howdy serleran, it's been a long time. How goes the gaming?

Re: Crusader's Companion Necromancer

Thanks for the information, and I agree. What confuses me most is the Necromancer spell lists seems to imply there is a specific Necromancer class (much like the Pyromancer in the same Companion), but I see no such class.

Crusader's Companion Necromancer

Hello all, it has been too long, but Castles & Crusades has called me back! In catching up on all that I have missed, I found the Crusader's Companion, and then found it to be something of a mystery. I dug up two versions out there: http://www.castlesandcrusades.com/downloads/peter-j-schroeder/crusa...

<t>I find it to be less of a problem in C&C than most other similar games. C&C's creature saving throw system gives many creatures a good chance against many spells.<br/> <br/> That alone gives the CK more tools to work with than the magic immune. <br/> _________________<br/> Baron Greymoor<...
