They also happen to be pretty good in the game compared to other races.

Divine Divinity
Gothic 2
Diablo 2
You have a skeleton army raising option in Gothic 2 and Diablo 2; in Divinity you can enslave the corpse of Bosses, and thereĀ“s one who can raise an skeleton army everytime an enemy shows up. Yup, is fucking awesome.

No games OP. There are none that really provide an enjoyable necromancer experience. At best you can maybe summon a few undead minions as some sort necromancer-skinned mage

3, 4 and 5 are all good. My personal favorite is 4 since you actively participate in combat with your hero.. which has its upsides and downsides, 4 strongly splits opinions

Can you construct your own undead minion by carefuly selecting parts from townspeople as you stalk the streets at night performing unholy rituals to trap their spirits to fuel your creations?

Soon you will no longer have to hide, soon you will have your army, and they wont be able to hurt you any more

They turn to ash and you can only have 5 active, which have a timer.

Don't get me wrong, zombie mammoths was fun, but it's such wasted potential.

>being this much of a fucking idiot.

Being a vampire in Dawngaurd buffs your undead, and gives you multiple spells in base and lord form to raise shit. The lord form also raises mammoths and giants.

It's like you haven't even played the game or something... oh wait.. this is /v/ isn't it.
>>
>>254538508
Depends how deep you wanna go with it. Either a necro that does necro stuff for greater good (like Arantir in Dark Messiah), or a necro bent on power, or a philosophical necro trying to balance life and death.

Dawngaurd adds skeletons and other summons along with a ghost horse and some new spells.

>>254538508
I described it here
>>254537474

There was a game kind of like this being worked on as a mod for NWN, but it neve happened and im sure you couldnt even find it now.

Basically you played as a necromancer, a secret necro. You had a necromancer lair to do necromancer shit in. It started out with you having to be very careful, because you were learning necromancy and needed corpses and shit but you were just some shitty novice mage. You had to stealthily not get caught as you gathered materials for shit and had to do things to upgrade you lair.

The idea was that eventually you would become a powerful necromancer and could set out taking shit over and having your undead minions be powerful servants.

The long term goal was making your own kingdom or some shit i dont even know.

The point is it needs to be a realistic necromancer simulator, a game based around being a necromancer. Not just some shitty generic fantasy adventure game where you can summon a zombie while spamming life tap on shit.

>>254540025
Sounds similar enough to M&B. I'm not sure sure about it needing to be a simulator though. It could be as abstract as a puzzle game similar to SpaceChem (but with body parts).

Well it wasnt a sandbox, it was more of a linear thing like how the witcher is, with chapters but kind of freedom to do each chapter in whatever way you want to.

You control a loli and she has the power to communicate with the dead.

In battle you can use objects like rocks, trees, weapons, etc. to give your phantoms shape, kind of like in diablo 2 the steel golem you use a weapon as a vessel.

Dunno if it's still true, but Path of Exile lets you have a retarded amount of summoned undead. I think you can get like 10 zombies, 4 spirits (which are just ghost copies of whatever you raise them from) and like fucking 60 skeletons all at once.

If you're after the "Army of undead" thing, I'd recommend it.

no....U ;-;
>>
>>254542951
You can't get 60 skeletons. Nowhere even close. The only way to increase thenumber is through specific uniques and even still the skeletons are only temporary.

You can however, with a fast enough cast rate and spell totems, summon up to 50 raging spirits which are like flaming skulls. These are also temporary.
>>
>>254537457
4 is utter shit and you're a retard for liking it. Heroes participating in combat directly breaks it, there is absolutely no reason to use creatures past leveling a hero early game.
