Spell References – Necromancy Spells

Necromancy spells manipulate the energies of life and death. Such spells can grant an extra reserve of life force, drain the life energy from another creature, create the undead, ar even bring the dead back to life.

Creating the undead through the use of necromancy spells such as animate dead is not a good act, and only evil caster’s use such spells frequently.

A list of all the available necromancy spells in my game and where to find them for easy reference.
