Skeleton Guard

Skeletons' reanimation is the oldest and the most common of necromancy disciplines. Unlike zombies, skeletons aren't just puppets since they possess some of their intravital skills despite they don't remember anything about their lives. When necromancers need skeletons for war, they usually use corpses of enemy warriors or buy corpses of former soldiers from grave robbers. Leftover meat becomes food for ghouls while bones come back to life through dark magic spell. Although skeletons are just pawns for dark mages, latter appreciate bone warriors enough to provide them with weapons and cheap armor. Depending on its skills, skeleton can be equipped with axe, sword, spear, bow or crossbow. Warriors with axes are most common since this weapon doesn't requires skills better than builder's or lumberjack's.
