I have a Necromancer that is starting to get a decent size army of undead going. It works great, he mainly uses his other spells to fill the support/buff/debuff role and uses the undead as his main source of damage. The only downside is it is starting to slow down combat.

Does anyone have any good homebrew/ house-rules they use to let the Necromancer summon stronger undead but less of them to keep combat flowing?

Many good questions generate some degree of opinion based on expert experience, but answers to this question will tend to be almost entirely based on opinions, rather than facts, references, or specific expertise. If this question can be reworded to fit the rules in the help center, please edit the question.

  • \$\begingroup\$ My DM basically said if I found something he would look it over. So far I have found people either revamping the class features or making a whole separate Necromancer class but nothing about my specific question. \$\endgroup\$ – DragoonKite Oct 14 at 21:56

  • \$\begingroup\$ @V2Blast Then unlock the question. There are at least two of us offering answers as the question stands, "backed up" with rules from other systems. This is not attracting primarily opinion based answers. But, if people are really concerned about the word "good" (which is ubiquitous with asking for an answer in general), then simply edit it out. \$\endgroup\$ – Luck Oct 15 at 17:11
