*shakes my cane* Why back in my day young whippersnapper there used to be three Voteups a week.

When I was new they were doing VUACS and Afro was doing his weekly Vote up a Villain.

I'm just glad we've started them back up and they're getting attention again.

Mid to high evoker... oh look, I ignore half of your immunity to fire or cold damage. Thank you Frostburn and Sandstorm.

*also, you don't get resistance versus chosen element.

Otherwise: Epic Generalist, I know all spells, I'm not limited.

Voting for kitschy and assuming we keep all the melodrama that comes with it.

I want undead standing around imitating famous statues in this moving fortress.

Tangential question: How do you figure the carrying capacity of a mob of zombies? You know, so we can figure out how big this castle can be.

Depending on how you look at the current votes, we either have an epic kitschy necromancer, or an epic kitschy compassionate paranoid necromancer. Personally the latter looks most interesting to me.

Agreed. I said happy originally because "happy necromancer" is unusual...but I guess kitschy compassionate paranoid is better.

You may suffer one point of ten points of Con burn to restore life and fully heal your target

Is this suppose to be one point, or 10 points?

Nice, though. I particularly like the idea of giving sentience to an undead AND taking away their movement at the same time.
