The college of Necromancy is both prohibited in many kingdoms of the world, and the forbidden fruit for the magical scholars in all casting circles of society. Some dabble in necromancy in secret in the cellars of their towers away from the eyes of their contemporaries, working to gain the power to enact nefarious plots.
