Playing the Necromancer

The Necromancer is an informative role that allows you to add interest to the game for the players who are already dead.


The Necromancer's objective is to defeat the werewolves. At night, they can communicate with the dead, to find out important information.
The Necromancer receives all of the messages from the dead during the night.
He can also exchange with them.
Be careful not to reveal your role by sending a message to dead players during the early day !


Discussing at night

Discussing with the dead players is a great source for hints but also for thinking. Even from beyond the grave, an outside point of view can always help find the remaining Werewolves.

The Necromancer serves as an information relay for the dead.
You must always question the dead roles that didn't have time to reveal all of their information:

All the players the Seer observed
The player saved by the Witch
The Guard’s protections
Being helped during the search for the Talkative Wolf

Chatting with the dead Werewolves can help you get some information : whereas it is forbidden for them to reveal their friends, the Necromancer can analyze their reactions and their fake advice to deduce innocent people or guilty ones. Be careful about the information you get !

Checking theories during the day

Thanks to the information of the game and the advice given during the night : look at the other players with new eyes, approach the innocent ones and test the reactions of the suspects.

The infected Necromancer

At night the infected Necromancer can still read dead people’s chat and talk to them, unless during the Werewolves’ turn when he talks with them. It is still useful to get informations from innocent roles and tell them to the werewolves, especially the Seer’s. He can talk and take some advice from the dead Werewolves.
