Spellbook.png Necronomicon
Primary school Necromancy
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.
