Since playing the #GrimWorld #Necromancer on Saturday in David Reichgeld s game, I started thinking about my first custom moves:
When you Raise the Dead, you can raise two corpses instead of one. These corpses have to be one size category smaller than the corpses you normally are able to raise and deal each one die category less damage (d4 instead of d6).
The Three Corpseteers
Requires: Dead Duet
You are able to raise three corpses under the same requirements as Dead Duet.
What do the senior #DungeonWorld designers think?

One of the dangers in our current game is a death knight that the party accidentally released from its tomb-prison.
One of the dangers in our current game is a death knight that the party accidentally released from its tomb-prison. Needless to say, there is a definite #undead presence in the game.
Now the wizard character has been using Spout Lore a lot to determine specific undead-related stuff. For awhile I neglected to ask how his character knew about such things. Then after he rolled a 12 once and after I detailed some very specific information, I suddenly asked, “how does Lilliastre know about these things?”
Interestingly, the other players responded with, 1) “yeah, the elf does know an unusual amount of stuff about undead.” 2) coughcough #necromancer coughcough 3) ‘maybe s/he’s not as pristine as s/he looks.” To which the elf replied, “hey, we all have our hobbies.”
Eventually the game went on, but after the end of session move, the wizard player then asked me if there was a way for his character to start delving into “undead matters.” I told him that I’ll look around for options online.
Now here’s the thing – my Google-fu is weak right now and I can’t seem to find any. Can anyone help me loom into necromancy options in Dungeon World? Anything from new wizard spells to relevant compendium classes to actual necromancer classes to just straight-up advice would be appreciated.
