Undead Minions

From Sagataflwiki

Jump to: navigation, search

This article contains the rules for making and using Undead Minions: Wights, Wraiths, Wight Lords and Wraith Lords. When a character Summons or Animates an Undead Minion, he does so using Spells that are on the Necromancy Realm page, and as part of the process he chooses traits that are listed and documented in the article on Undead Minion Abilities.

Please note that Undead Minions are created as powerful as they'll ever be. They do not, in any sense of the word, "level up". They can learn but do so very slowly relative to living beings, and they can only improve mundane Skills this way, e.g. Languages. Creating an Undead Minion costs Essence, with a small base cost, and then additional cost dependent on how many and how powerful special traits they are given; it is common for a necromance to have a single very powerful (thus costing a lot of ES) Wight Lord or Wraith Lord as his lieutenant.

Wight, Wraith, Wight Lord and Wraith Lord, should all redirect to here. Later on separate articles may be written, one for Wights/Lords and one for Wraiths/Lords, but for now this one article is sufficient.



Examples I

Getting more in depth

Examples II


Include any and all pertinent advice here. The goal is to increase the chance of each player having fun, by giving advice helping the player to decide whether to buy the ability or not (if the article is about one or more abilities) or use the option (if the article is about something that characters can choose to do), and later on how to make use of the ability (e.g. to avoid any pitfalls that aren't extremely obvious).

Please note

Clarify, elaborate, try to predict and answer questions that are somewhat likely to be asked during character creation or during play.


Put in sub-sections (three ='s) each containing multiple Q&As, and insert a blank line between each individual Q&A.




The world

A section mainly for the GM, or worldbuilder, about the world impact of the phenomenon, e.g. an Item Creation Power, or an attribute or other stat that may sometimes be starkly high or low relative to the Human average.

World impact

Talk about the effect on the world that this phenomenon would realistically have (taking into account such facts of human nature as greed, ambition and sexual impulses).

The Ärth setting

Talk about how this trait appears and functions in the Ärth historical fantasy setting.

Design Notes

Talk briefly about what the purpose of the mechanic is. Omit this section if it is extremely obvious to the target audience.

Quick mini-glossary

Explain terms of great relevance to the subject matter of the article here, but not terms that are of generally great importance (e.g. RD).
