Right, not exactly remote but collectively avoided for various reasons
of which the least is not the presence of my temple. But you do have a
point there, I'd imagine the Necrolytes wouldn't enjoy being squeezed
between the elves and the trolls.

Right, Nabor Thaan is fine but I still think they shouldn't live in the
volcanic areas, more like in the eastern peninsula. Who occupies the
city of Eterra btw?

I'd like that there would be a little information about Necrolytes among
the more "illuminated" races such as the elves and certain human tribes,
and orcs naturally because of the geographical closeness of the
Necrolyte areas. This is simply because if no-one would know about
Necrolytes they would serve no purpose, and I'd like Necrolytes to play
a fairly important part in the world of Majik, at least more important
than being a mere curiosity. They deserve it because of their
originality and potential. But as far as the players are concerned, they
should NOT be aware of the existence of the Necrolyte race nor the
location of the Necrolyte areas without having to work for them, ie.
they are a secret race for people to discover as they play.
