Life and death are two sides of the same coin, and controlling one gives
great power over the other. There are many uses for necromancy, some
more potent and dangerous than others. On one level, using corpses as
animated labourers is little different from using golems or elementals.
Many healing spells are partially necromantic in nature, working with
dying instead of dead flesh. Other benign uses of necromantic arts
including calling up or otherwise contacting the dead as part of
religious ceremonies, or even as part of respectful scholarly inquiry.
Some cultures or races may accept such forms of necromancy, as long as
the dead are honoured and respected, even if they object to sorcerers
marching corpses around.
Necromantic Arts is a toolkit for making despicable and terrifying
enemies for the players in your Runequest games. Material in this book
can be applied to any setting using the Runequest rules, from Glorantha
to Lankhmar to Elric or to your own homebrewed games.
