The skeletal lord still stands proudly erect. Skilled in the art of battle, it takes its time, carefully measuring each powerful attack to strike at the enemy's most exposed point. Its body reduced to shreds of flesh, eye sockets now empty, the skeletal lord still attacks with amazing accuracy.
- Skeletal lords are slow, but hit particularly hard with their lances. It is best to get the skeletal lord prone in order to induce a turn spent standing back up.
- Skeletal lords will occasionally attempt to trip and to disarm the player, although they are more likely to attack. They can also infect the player with a disease that starts by subtracting 45 points from their HP and which goes down by 3 every turn thereafter.
