What are games where I can play as a necromancer? No MMO's or ARPG's (like Diablo or PoE).
A friend of mine says that a summoning necromancer scales fucking terribly into the harder difficulty.
I'm too casual for Dorf fort or ADOM but I might give Dungeonmans a try
I know there's DnD but I'm looking for something a little more actiony than those games.
I really should have specified more in the OP
Your friend's wrong. Summon Necro's can solo Hell with shit gear better than anyother class. Amp damage, corpse explosion big groups. Decrepify, crushing blow revives and teleport for bosses.
The only real problem you'll have is Act II because of narrow dungeon design and those fucking beetles and normal Diablo because your skellies won't be strong enough at that point.
The actual process of becoming a Lich is necromantic in nature, yes (although it changes depending on the setting), but there are plenty of non-necromancers who become Liches.
Being a Lich doesn't mean you're a necromancer, and vice-versa.

Is this one of those threads where OP asks for necromancy games, and then when a good discussion is going someone (OP?) posts pics and links to that necromancer game that this Hopoo games (Risk of Rain) artist/programmer is developing?
No, but I'll post the link anyway since you're that much interested:
Can't be arsed with unreleased games.
I'll pick it up when it's actually out, before then I'll just actually play something rather than read about something I can't play.
Thanks anyway though, shill-bro.
People joke about having 7000 skeletons in HoMM, HOW ABOUT HAVING THAT AS A NORMAL GAME NOT AN EXCEPTIONAL ONE?
IN SIMULATED BATTLES WITH EACH SKELETON BEING ON THE BATTLEFIELD AS AN INDIVIDUAL UNIT
ALONG WITH SPELLS THAT LET YOU DO STUFF LIKE CAUSE GHOUL ATTACKS OR EVEN MIGHTY SUPER UNDEAD SUCH AS WRAITH LORDS AND THE EATER OF THE DEAD, A TERROR SO POWERFUL IT THREATENS TO BREAK FREE OF YOUR CONTROL AND CONSUME ALL LIFE
Sometimes the Gods themselves turn followers into Liches.
There's the Lawful Evil god that turns cleric followers into Baneliches, and the elven god that turns certain elves into Baelnorns.
Lichdom, it has nothing to do with necromancy or liches.
