Necromantic Druid

While death and decay are part of the process of life, harnessing negative energy to give that which once lived a new sense of life through undeath is seen as a perversion of nature. However, that does not stop the necromantic druid from using such energies to protect their lands from others that would seek to defile it in other ways.

Alignment The necromantic druid must be neutral evil in alignment.

Expanded Spellcasting

In addition to the standard druid spell list, the necromantic druid gains access all the necromancy spells from the wizard spell list. These spells are cast as divine spells.

This alters the druid’s spellcasting ability and the necromantic druid does not gain the druid’s nature bond class feature.

Spontaneous Spellcasting

The necromantic druid may sacrifice a prepared spell of the same or higher level spell level to spontaneously cast from the following spell list.

1stray of sickening, 2ndpox pustules, 3rdcontagion, 4thblight, 5thgreater contagion, 6thplague storm, 7thfinger of death, 8thsunburst, 9thhorrid wilting

This replaces the druid’s spontaneous casting class feature.
