Hey all. So I’ve been playing on and off since heart of thorns and now I am getting quite interested in the game. Something keeps bothering me tho, and I’ve searched and searched online and have been unable to find an answer to this particular question.
I’ve been playing with my friend, and I keep calling nexromancer “warlock”, probably because I am a big dnd nerd. I DID find a Disucssion from 2012 about people being kitten about the distinction, but that’s about it.
My question: if the core game has zombies as the main enemy, and Kralkathoric raising the dead, and the whole central plot is about how waking the dead is an aweful profane thing that is terrible for the world and all around negative... why are necromancers considered “heros”
TLDR; wouldn’t a zombie class be a bad guy in a game whose core gameplay revolves around killing zombies? Is there something about a necromancer that is different in some way?
