"You have destroyed the Council of the Thirteen. Now, you will complete it yourself, becoming a Sorcerer of the Witch-king. Faithfull to the Iron Crown until your death."
The Shadow of Angmar, The Council of the Sorcerers (Angmar-RPG)

The Sorcerers of Angmar are magicians who have been taught witchcraft by the Witch-King. They are support units, and can specialize in specific skills to fit a certain strategy. They cannot attack directly but instead are used to power up nearby troops and debuff enemy troops. The Sorcerer uses the life of his acolytes to power his spells and must wait for them to regenerate; however, they regenerate faster than other battalions. The Sorcerers are recruited from the Temple of Twilight; this is also where their specialization upgrades can be bought.

The sorcerers of Angmar are the magical part of the evil faction's culture of different forces, and embody the aspect of sacrifice in the faction's strategy. The sorcerer himself has the most hitpoints and constantly regenerates a number of acolytes, who can be sacrificed to produce a variety of effects. The more acolytes that are sacrificed, the more powerful the spell becomes. But in common, all of the powers that the sorcerers have are meant to empower friendly units and weaken enemy units. Sorcerers do not have normal attacks of their own.

Using Sorcerers is a tricky task that requires a lot of micro-management, but the effects they have on the battlefield are more than rewarding. They serve as unit interferers, and to a lesser extent, mass slayers with the well of souls and corpse rain spells. It is imperative that they are set behind a group of normal soldiers however, as they cannot defend themselves from enemy soldiers, and are especially weak to cavalry.
