Necromancer and Nethermancer Preview

While I was severly unimpressed with the other Heroes of Shadow previews, this looks very cool.

DO WANT!

Lasting pets? Wow, that is something new and exciting for me!


Yes, the lasting animated dead seem very interesting.
I sometimes think that there is a tendency in 4e for it to turn into a series of encounters where the game takes a break in between for some hand-waved exposition (D&D encounters is big on this). Anything that bridges the gap between encounters and reminds players that the game is still 'on', that there characters are still acting in the game world, is a good thing in my opinion.


The ranger already has a permanent pet, and the shaman has something similar called a spirit companion. I believe the essentials druid has a pet, so the idea is not foreign to 4E.


Wow, Finger of Death is seriously powerful. Espically when certain spells and such give Players an actual idea of how many HP a creature has, what resistances it has, what it's bloodied value is....Soo looking forward to this supplement!!

Yeah - I have a feeling this next book is going to be scary-licious! Read with all the lights in the house ON, however ... O.O
