The Necromancer Guild, or more precisely the organization of the Philosophers of the Knife, began accepting students (in all instances simultaneously) at 6 PM CST Friday the 11th of December.
The Necromancer Guild is releasing with 20 spells, 19 of them on preview (and will stay that way for about one week). The 20th spell, Spiteful Rebirth, can't be previewed anyway due to how it works, so it was left out.
I'm not really going to spend any time talking about mechanics or anything in this post, there'll be plenty of time for that later. To all the rest of the hopefuls, I want to say: happy searching, and I hope you enjoy what you ultimately find! It was a labor of love for a lot of us, and despite a bit of playful sadism in the guild itself it was certainly made so that you, the players, would have fun with it.
Much discussion going on here!
