The Necromancer was encountered first when the party pursued the thieves of the Jade Warrior of Styrewood. After defeating several cadaverous Iron Circle soldiers, the group followed another group to the edge of a waterfall. Here, they were ambushed by the Necromancer and his guards, stunned, hurt, and warned to cease their interests in the Jade Brotherhood. The Necromancer told the party that there was little connection between the Brotherhood and Sultan Hakim, the sworn enemy of our heroes, but this was not received very seriously by the party, who believed, for the most part, that Hakim’s hand loomed here.
The Necromancer, himself, was not readily identifiable, robed and hooded in black. He did, however, leave one clue for the party in his warning: the name Hadron Graves.
