Questions You Should be Asking the World Around You

Necromancy. Why You Shouldn’t Do It.

debbiedoesdongs

If we look at all the ancient cultures that practiced necromancy and where they are now, it’s easy to conclude that necromancy is not a good thing.  Ancient Egypt, Babylonia, Ancient Greece, Ancient Rome, Ancient Israel. None of these cultures were permitted to expand, and thrive on through to the 21st century.

I read fantasy novels. I used to be a big D&D fan.  The word necromancy was introduced to me as a fun and magical thing to complement lore. But if we really think about the main component of necromancy, which is the dead, then we start to understand why it’s an incredibly dangerous thing.

It’s hard enough to get friends to like you in the land of the living, but with spirits?

The dead cannot interact with the living through physical touch or verbal speech. They cannot express their thoughts to other people. They cannot experience the things that living people do on a daily basis. They cannot experience joy or happiness, they’re forever bound to voyeurism and can never return to a state of living.  That’s enough to drive anything insane.

The second part is the inability for the living to communicate with the dead. Casting your words into the ether is foolish.  There are no guarantees of a non malevolent entity listening. No guarantees that they will do your bidding. No guarantees that they’re the recently deceased, or if they’re human even.  There is no established metric to gauge the successful or unsuccessful interactions of people engaging in necromancy.   Imagine their corrupted egos.

So, if you’ve been hankering for a bit necromancy lately, don’t do it. It’s dangerous. Even if it’s just for jokes and roleplay, it’s never a good thing.
