Wanted: Treasure and Fame
Animated by dark magic and composed entirely of bones, a skeleton is emotionless and soulless, desiring nothing but to serve its creator.
Skeletons are often used as guardians in dungeons and tombs. They also serve as basic infantry in undead armies.
These skeletons appear to have had time put into their creation, unlike their decrepit counterparts. Tougher then the individual parts it is made up of, they are armed with a heavy shield and longsword. Normally they are armored in chainmail, sacrificing the shortbow for practical defense.
Although made of bones that grate together when it moves and lurches when it attacks, if an opponent gives it an easy opening, it takes it with a precision not evident in anything else it does. When it does connect, it knows how to keep its targets attention or make it pay.
