Necromancy is the study of dark magic. With it, and the special book called The Tome of Necromancy, you can curse your foes, animate the dead, transform into wicked creatures, and summon some of the most deadly spells in the world.

To use the skill, you simply have to cast any of the spells available to you in the Tome of Necromancy. The more proficient you become at the skill, the more successful you will be at using the spells.

Necromancy Reagents
As with Magery, reagents are required in order to use Necromancy spells. When combined in different ways, these benign substances result in powerful magic that can be harnessed by Necromancers.

Necromancy is a special mode of divination by the evocation of the dead. Understood as nigromancy (niger, black), which is the Italian, Spanish and old French form, the term suggests "black" magic or "black" art, in which marvellous results are due to the agency of evil spirits, while in "white" magic they are due to human dexterity and trickery. The practice of necromancy supposes belief in the survival of the soul after death, the possession of a superior knowledge by the disembodied spirit, and the possibility of communication between the living and the dead. The circumstances and conditions of this communication — such as time, place, and rites to be followed — depend on the various conceptions which were entertained concerning the nature of the departed soul, its abode, its relations with the earth and with the body in which it previously resided. As divinities frequently were but human heroes raised to the rank of gods, necromancy, mythology, and demonology are in close relation, and the oracles of the dead are not always easily distinguished from the oracles of the gods.

Necromancy is the act of conjuring the dead for divination. It dates back to Persia, Greece and Rome, and in the Middle Ages was widely practiced by magicians, sorcerers, and witches. It was condemned by the Catholic Church as "the agency of evil spirits," and in Elizabethan England was outlawed by the Witchcraft Act of 1604.

Necromancy is not to be confused with conjuring devils or demons for help. Necromancy is the seeking of the spirits of the dead. The spirits are sought because they, being without physical bodies, are no longer limited by the earthly plane. Therefore, it is thought these spirits have access to information of the past and future which is not available to the living. It has been used to help find sunken or buried treasure, and whether or not a person was murdered or died from other causes.

The practice of necromancy has been compared by some to modern mediumistic or practiced spiritualism. Many consider it a dangerous and repugnant practice. Dangerous because it is alleged that when some spirits take control of the medium they are reluctant to release their control for some time.

Necromancy is not practiced in Neo-pagan Witchcraft, but it is practiced in  VOODOO. There are two noted kinds of necromancy: the raising of the corpse itself, and the most common kind, the conjuring or summoning of the spirit of the corpse.

First of all I want to apologize for the use of the negatory discrimative word featured above in the fourth paragraph. Let me make it clear that I am by no means prejudice and that this was NOT written by me. I gained this information from the Catholic Encyclopedia so please do not be offended. I also want to thank Origin. If you are interested in Necromancy, you should go there to learn more about it. More thanks to the MYSTICA
