Legion

(image)

Legion is the most horrible of necromancers' creations. Leaving aside draugs and death knights who also considered to be ''necromancers' creations'' although these monsters appear against the will of necromancers and occasionally causing hatred of latter. Legions is product of joint activity of necromancers and undeads. Group of revenants merges together via magical ritual. They combines their bones, creating body of desired shape. Legion acts as organic whole although each of its parts has its own consciousness and skills. Equipment and number of Legion's skeletons may differ, but even little Legion is far more dangerous than its parts separately. Bone whopper of the Legion looks so impressive than enemies flee, not having the courage to approach it. Nevertheless, Legions still not very frequent due to their need in large number of specially trained revenants who have not only an ability but also a desire to working together. Not every necromancer could afford such collection.
