Death and Taxes


Philosophy:
The faction Death and Taxes is a profit-driven war faction, raising the dead to their service.
They're quite fickle, and shouldn't be trusted as an enemy or an ally.

Description improvement may happen over time or as needed.

How to Play:

Select the Undead race, or if playing as random, hope you get the undead. Once the map
has loaded, a dialog will be shown, allowing you to play as regular undead or the Death
and Taxes Faction.
