|An extremely rare book, powerful and sinister. Many foolhardy magicians have tried to study this tome, only to find themselves entangled within necromantic forces they could not hope to control.|
The Necronomicon is the highest level Necromancy book.

- Prior to 0.27, the Necronomicon had Infestation, and Kikubaaqudgha directly gifted the spellbook. This book was also one of a few "special books" that could not be gifted by Sif Muna.
- In 0.19, Infestation was added to the book.
- Prior to 0.17, reading the Necronomicon required you to either have both level 6 in Spellcasting and level 10 in Necromancy, or to be a follower of Kikubaaqudgha.
- In 0.14, the Necronomicon can sometimes be found at the end of the Crypt.
- Prior to 0.12, failing to memorise a spell from this book could produce severe Necromancy miscast effects.
