Wizards who deal with the macabre mysteries of death and undeath are a staple of sword and sorcery fiction and fantasy gaming. While the Old-School Essentials magic-user class has access to some spells within the necromantic domain (for example, horrid classics such as animate dead and death spell), such magic is not the class's primary focus. Enter the necromancer...
To celebrate our recent 10 year anniversary, we’re thrilled to release a free PDF of the necromancer class for Old-School Essentials, written by Gavin Norman.
The PDF contains the necromancer class and the complete list of 72 spells, including such creepy delights as corpse visage, carrion stench, vampiric touch, wall of bones, veil of life, and necrotic gaze.

Fiends and demonology are indeed next up.
Very well done! I’m looking forward to seeing this in hard copy. This sort of thing adds much to the game because the B/X style editions have always been relatively limited in spell diversity. Any plans on doing more in the same vein, e.g., write ups of summoners, witches, etc.? Perhaps a format that would also let you finally present the classic demons and devils from 1E?
