War with the Necromancers 2 Encounters & Wonders
Under my gothic section in the emo rules index on sidebar are more

probably don't need A-Z necromancer lairs or carousing with necromancers  

So as usual for opening of the war encounters and wonders start off simpler allowing you to use a d10 or d20 in the opening phase before things go to hell. If night time a issue replace undead with light tolerant variety or use weather such as dark clouds or fog which only adds to the effect.
