Ascension Address: Because I Could Not Stop For Death

The Old King’s spirit drifted out of his body as the Grim Reaper completed the swing of their scythe, severing soul from corpse. As it drifted away, the Grim Reaper stood back, satisfied by their work. Something caught their attention…the Grim Reaper sniffed the air, and then vanished.

Hundreds of miles away, a group of Necromancers gathered to perform their midnight rituals under a starless sky, using the energy of the night to recharge their powers. As they tapped into the necrotic energy field, each one felt the same disturbance - a sign of a powerful force approaching, and there was no doubt to any of them what it was. Seconds later, the Grim Reaper appeared among them and spoke in their minds.

“You continue to interfere with the natural order of life and death, despite my earlier warnings to you. I will now be forced to take more drastic measures. You will find your abilities waning over time, as each power you have created dies by my hand. Do not forget who has dominion over Death!”

As quick as they appeared, the Grim Reaper disappeared. The necromancers were silent for a moment, then began whispering among each other. After some debate, they all agreed on a plan. They would have to find a way to overcome the Grim Repear’s promise to kill off their powers, but more importantly, one of them would need to discover the steps necessary to become the new Grim Reaper and stop this threat once and for all.

The dynasty’s theme shall be “Necromancy”.

Repeal all dynastic rules except for the rule named “Hibernation”, reset all Special Case rules to their default values, and fail all Proposals except those making changes to the Core Rules, the Special Case Rules or the Appendix Rules.

Set the synonym for Player to “Necromancer” and the synonym for Emperor to “Grim Reaper”.

Change the gamestate tracking page to “The Graveyard”.


My Imperial Style will be: Gardener, Protective, Powerhouse, Scam-Neutral, Guarded, Methodical.
