Necromancer's Tower

The Necromancer is the character responsible for raising the dead throughout the game. He can be found at the top of the Necromancer's Tower.

He is a shriveled old man who is unable to do or say anything when you approach him. Your only real choices are in how you kill him.


  • You may choose to destroy him for 540 - 567 XP.
  • If you have read all 3 runes on the way up the tower you will have the option to consume him instead.
    • You "replace" him, and receive his Necromancer's crown as a reward, as well as 666 XP.
      • In Hard Mode the crown immediately crumbles to dust.
    • Note that Doc Alice will abandon you as a pardner if this is done.
      • After expressing her disapproval, you have one chance to back out. If you do, Alice will not leave you, but you will forgo the XP and crown rewards.
