(image)

No matter how useful talanted apprentice is, sooner or later he become too dangerous since he able to become competing necromancer - and you don't want to reveal to the competitor your secrets which you discover to your subordinates. So one day mentor announces to his disciple that his education is complete - usually it occurs shortly after young necromancer learn how to call all kinds of undeads, including ghosts. From now on newly high sorcerer may create his own undead army, teach his own apprentices and do anyting he want while his former mentor is always happy to help him with advice - but only with advice. With a certain point high sorcerers are less influential than apprentices they were before as they can't more participate in the performance of their master's global plans. On the other hand, ambitious young necromancers usually able to succeed in daring designs, which senior would not risked to attempt.
