AND THE DEAD SHALL RISE, just because I say so!
~ Magnus Hainsley
Perhaps the most evil of the black arts, necromancy is the summoning of the dead to do one's bidding. These villainous Necromancers wield the power of death, either for power, fear, or even worship.

Necromancers are not necessarily only manipulators of dead bodies, but may also seek manipulation and/or experimentation of the spirits of the deceased as well. Necromancy is often a second nature to Warlocks and Death Gods.
