Humacti follow in the tradition set by the great Priest of Life, Humact. During his life his goal was to rid the world of all Undead and those who created them. The Humacti are loosely affiliated to the Temple of Life, though they have their own leaders and command structure.
Though the Spirit Guides of Barbarian Witch Doctor’s register as Undead, the Kingdom’s position is that this does not violate the laws against Necromancy as they appear to be self willed, voluntary manifestations. The Humacti publicly accept this interpretation, though individual Humacti are free to make up their own mind, and on the occasions where a Humacti has “accidentally” destroyed a Spirit Guide, the individual has always received the full support of the Humacti.

A starting character can join the guild immediately.
A non-starting character must prove their worth before joining the Humacti. The usual test is for the character to defeat an Undead of higher Rank, or by destroying many Undead with total Ranks exceeding twice the character’s Rank. Only after proving their devotion are they inducted as full members of the Humacti. The Character Ref will decide if/when they are ready.

A member of the Humacti gains the following bonuses.
Example: Cecil casts Detect Undead 2. This grants him the ability to call “Recognise Undead Mastery”. Additionally he decides to gain a Creature Lore bonus against Skeletons, gaining +3 Damage and +2 Dexterity against Skeletons.
Cecil had received a briefing from a party Pathfinder with Rec Creature Specialisation against Skeletons. This has no additional effect. Later he asks the Pathfinder for advice on fighting Zombies. Cecil now has +3 Damage and +2 Dexterity against Skeletons and +1 Damage and +1 Dexterity against Zombies.
|Casting||Type of Undead||Damage Bonus||Dexterity Bonus|
|Detect Undead 1||Zombies, Skeletons||+1||+1|
|Detect Undead 2||Ghouls, Ghosts, Shadows, Death Knights, Guardian Spirits, Liches, Vampires||+3||+2|
|Detect Undead 3||Any||+5||+3|
Example: Redferne, a a Guild Rank 22 Humacti has 2 natural Willpower, his Humacti bonus gives him an extra 2 Willpower added to Turn Undead. This gives him a combined 4 Willpower added to Turn Undead, but this is still halved as usual to 2. Hence he could cast:
Turn Undead 1 as Turn Undead 2.
Turn Undead 2 as Turn Undead 4.
Turn Undead 3 as Turn Undead 5 etc.
Redferne could also use this bonus on Destroy Undead:
Turn Undead 3 as Destroy Undead 1, which becomes Destroy Undead 2
Turn Undead 4 as Destroy Undead 2, which becomes Destroy Undead 4
Turn Undead 5 as Destroy Undead 3, which becomes Destroy Undead 5 etc.
