    I picked up a 2nd account at the $45 level so that my 6-year-old son and I could play together.

    Scene: Leaving Graff Gem Mines after taking on some Kobolds.
    Me: "What do you want to do next? Do you want to visit Adoris? It's a beautiful city of canals, like Venice."
    Son: "No."
    Me: "Do you want to visit the Brave Coast, and try or watch PvP combat?"
    Son: "No."
    Me: "Do you want to explore the ruins of Ravensmoore? Together, we could slay the Lord of the Undead!"
    Son: "No."
    Me: "Well, what do you want to do?"
    Son: "I want to take our gold and buy more furniture for our house!"

    ;)

    A conversation with my son (at age 9) went something like this.

    Me: What kind of character do you want to make?
    Son: A Wizard
    Me: What's his name?
    Son: Ruthless Bobby (Name changed to protect the innocent, but believe me it was equally silly)
    Me: Really, Ruthless Bobby?
    Son: Yeah, Bobby is a funny name.
    Me: Ok, what are you going to do as a wizard?
    Son: I'm going to kill things, bury them under my house and turn them into an undead army.
    Me: ....

    That was honestly his first thought. My in-game neighbors are going to be so pleased!

    That's a smart kid (invest), but you should have told him "let's save our Gold, and build all our furniture. First we need to gather some Wood...".

    Not to my knowledge. I can tell you with great certainty that if it exists I did not put it there.

    I can also state flatly that I've never played a Necromancer in any games. Dead things, ick.
