Necromancy is an evil and ancient magic that has been lost for generations until the Styvarian nobleman, Tiberius Jakivus III, accidentally discovered it recently.
WARNING: NECROMANCY INVITES EVIL AND DARKNESS INTO YOUR SOUL AND MAY CORRUPT YOU INTO A SCHRIVELED, INVISIBLE BEING OF PURE MALICE
In lore, the act of necromancy is killing another person and siphoning their life force, using it to make themselves more powerful. It may take years to learn how to do it, with the man who re-discovered it knowing that it is possible but not how to do it, as he does not wish to explore this evil further. In-game, however, this is how to do it:
- Kill another player.
- Collect their death compass (if possible)
- Disenchant the compass
Long ago, this vile practice was common, and caused great havoc in the ancient civilizations of the world of Alathra. The necromancers, however, slowly turned into invisible evil spirits. The ancient peoples soon burned all books teaching the way of necromancy to stop more necromancers from arising. The ancient peoples then found a way to banish the spirits to the Nether, where after thousands of years they found how to take physical form and became the many evil demons and creatures that inhabit that evil realm.
