Today we’d like to show you a preview of an enemy we’re working on!
The Necropolis Scavengers are pitiful yet frightening to behold, their undead bodies neglected compared to the Empire’s military. Where soul magic effortlessly maintains the forms of other undead, the weak amount present in the Necropolis Scavengers results in them having to bind their bones together with string, cloth, whatever scraps they can find - including the remains of other undead. By sharing the remnant soul magic they ease their need. It is not uncommon to find Necropolis Scavengers that appear almost like a mass of skulls and limbs bound by cloth, as they have huddled together to share soul magic only to lose their individuality.
The filth and neglect of their forms have attracted other scavengers, rats and gathering around their bodies and even dwelling within whatever cavities they can find, the contamination of soul magic waste extending their own lives beyond the limits of death as well.
