Despite the immortality epidemic, necromancy is still widely practised in Deadrealm. The lack of widespread civilized society means that necromancers are less likely to be scorned or at least it’s easier for them to hide. Sometimes necromancy is even welcomed. Certainly still unpleasant to many folks, but one would have to be a hypocrite to completely oppose necromancy and also be immortal. Also many immortal take their situation for granted and end up fearing death more than mortals.

However, there is one place where necromancy is outlawed: the City of Light. The Arm greatly opposes necromancy magic because it compounds the population problem. Raising the dead in the city requires special permission that is very rarely granted. Practising without a license results in expulsion from the city and any returning law breakers are punished with complete destruction.
