Heroes 3 Necropolis is a faction/race of undead creatures in Heroes of Might and Magic 3. Its alignment is death. Usually castles are built on dead creature bones. This town is the perfect home base for the hero classes Death Knight and Necromancer. The “Necromancy” is their natural passive ability. At the end of each battle a percentage of fallen living creatures turn into undead and join Necropolis Hero’s army.
The creatures built in this town include skeletons, vampires and ghost dragons. Being undead they are unaffected by negative morale penalties, by mind spells and blindness. Their strength consists in the ability to weaken their opponents, making even stronger enemies easier to defeat. This is particularly useful if you use Vampire Lords against living and non-elemental enemy creatures.

Unfortunately, there are only two ranged creatures: Lich and Power Lich. Zombies and walking dead creatures will slow down your army. And, the strongest creatures (Bone and Ghost Dragons) are the least useful Level 7 creatures.
Heroes from the necropolis have the secondary skill “Necromancy”. Thanks to this ability the hero can bring back creatures killed in combat as skeletons. The more advanced is this skill, the more creatures will be brought back as skeletons.
