|Type(s)||Action - Shelter|
Necropolis is one of the three Shelter cards that players start with instead of Estates in their decks in Dark Ages games. It is the only Shelter that is an Action card. Since Necropolis provides +2 actions, its presence makes Dark Ages games slightly friendlier to engine building, and it broadens the strategic possibilities for opening with terminal Actions, since each player starts the game with one village already in their deck.
