Reanimation is a type of necromancy which instills dead bodies with life - but not awareness. All necromancy is black magic.

Specific Details

Reanimation is the process of making zombies. The magician responsible must make some sort of blood sacrifice, ranging from a cut on their own hand to the slaughter of an animal, depending on how old the body is and how powerful they are. Once reanimated, a body stays animate until the animator re-inters it - however, the body does continue to decay.

Used By


Reanimation is standard operating procedure for necromancers. Powerful necromancers use this to create zombie armies that they can then control.


Other magicians can attempt reanimation, but unless they are true necromancers the process is difficult.
