The rock cities of the Necron are well-known around the northern regions of Ozul. These bird-like people are famous for their mountaineering skills and the fear-inducing trails to reach their homes. Although it may seem that they share the abilities of many of the bird-like races, the Necron does not have wings or any flight ability. Their lean and humanoid bodies are perfect for scaling rock cliffs and that is where they tend to spend most of their time.
Whenever someone needs to navigate through the northern reaches of Ozul, they will generally hire several Necrons to guide them through the treacherous territories. The Necron have built alliances with many of the mountain races and have very specific paths that they can follow through the mountain.
As mentioned before, the Necron is well known for their cities. Carved within the base walls of mountains, the Necron have created a series of caverns that can only be navigated using a series of extremely thin stairs. The stairs are also not continuous. There are plenty of spots where they discontinue and the Necron lightly jumps to another set. This is extremely harrowing since many of the steps may be several hundred to a thousand feet up.
In addition to the steps, the walls themselves are hand-carved with decorations. Climbing the sheer walls, you can see them hold on with one hand while they use their rock-axes and carve delicate symbols. It is unknown what the symbols represent. More study needs to happen to understand this and they are reluctant to even talk about it.
Necrons tend to be a quiet and accepting race. They will listen more to what a non-Necron is saying rather than offering their opinion about something. When they are together, they will discuss more about the family or trips or other bits of information in low tones. There is a secretive feeling that you get when speaking with them and it’s very apparent that they are always watching you.
As extremely competent climbers and mountaineers, their first option during combat is always to escape to higher locations. This is especially true if they are also anxious to continue the fight. In the mountains, they have an uncanny ability to disappear in the rocks and ledges. It seems that they can become so still that they disappear.
Their preferred method of fighting is by grappling. With the extremely strong arms and lean bodies, they are able to subjugate many opponents while other Necrons come over and use knives or other small implements to eliminate the threat.
