Necromancy is an old but simple practice. To be a necrotic spell master requires only three things.
Magic, a limitless yet difficult power to master. Raise undead, one of the first and most basic spells any magic user will ever learn across their lifetimes. An open class slot.
But this isn’t a story about an up and coming necromancer. No this is about the faithful minion that’s been summoned by their fledgling master.
If you think being a Necromancer is hard, just imagine how hard it must be for a Lv1 Skeleton.
