The Gray Necromancer

Suggested Price $0.00

A dwarf clad in robes lights incense and prays to her ancestors, as the monsters break through the main gate. The bodies of dwarves from centuries past take up their posts and drive the invaders away, before returning to their slumber.

A Will-O’-Wisp in a dark swamp leads a child back to the path, before returning to the clawed hand of the dragonborn who summoned it. They tug their hood higher to cover their face, as they pass through a village that would drive them out if it learned the truth of the strange noises in the night.

The side of a mountain quakes, and a human mage cackles as the skeleton of a dragon rises from its stoney grave. A warning beacon sounds in the town below as the dragon takes flight, roaring black fire into the sky.

The Gray Necromancer was an attempt to create a necromancer class that was fun to play, and not inherently evil. The PDF includes 20 levels of the class, 3 subclasses, and 10 undead Horde stat blocks, along with instructions on how to make your own Horde based on monster stats from the Monster Manual. 

If you get a chance to play this, I would love to know how it goes!

Author's note: I realize that some of the formatting is not OCD friendly... for some reason the Homebrewery doesn't like me. However everything should be legible. If I ever manage to fix the formatting I'll upload a new version.

Rules Edition(s)
Original electronic
Scanned image
These products were created by scanning an original printed edition. Most older books are in scanned image format because original digital layout files never existed or were no longer available from the publisher.

For PDF download editions, each page has been run through Optical Character Recognition (OCR) software to attempt to decipher the printed text. The result of this OCR process is placed invisibly behind the picture of each scanned page, to allow for text searching. However, any text in a given book set on a graphical background or in handwritten fonts would most likely not be picked up by the OCR software, and is therefore not searchable. Also, a few larger books may be resampled to fit into the system, and may not have this searchable text background.

For printed books, we have performed high-resolution scans of an original hardcopy of the book. We essentially digitally re-master the book. Unfortunately, the resulting quality of these books is not as high. It's the problem of making a copy of a copy. The text is fine for reading, but illustration work starts to run dark, pixellating and/or losing shades of grey. Moiré patterns may develop in photos. We mark clearly which print titles come from scanned image books so that you can make an informed purchase decision about the quality of what you will receive.
Original electronic format
These ebooks were created from the original electronic layout files, and therefore are fully text searchable. Also, their file size tends to be smaller than scanned image books. Most newer books are in the original electronic format. Both download and print editions of such books should be high quality.
