Necromancy

One of the darkest forms of magic, Necromancy is the manipulation of dark energies that result from the great Darkness in the universe. These powers, while not inherantly evil, are present to twist, bend, and destroy things, to remove them from the natural order of the universe. The dead walk, the seeing are blind, and poisons and toxins can ravage a countryside all in the interest of the will of the user.

Necromancy can only be cast by the Necromancy school of magic, which in turn requires Elemental Affinity: Darkness to possess.

This spell creates a powerful storm over (Mage Level) Areas and deals non-elemental magic damage with a barrage of acidic rain, lightning, and hail; however, this spell also inflicts Acute "Shock", Acute "Melt", and Acute "Freeze" status on all targets within the affected Areas.
  • Cursed Earth - The character is able to desecrate and curse a wide splotch of earth in an effort to merge it with darkness and foul it with disease and undeath. This spell warps (Mage Level) Areas around the caster; any living creature that passes into this area must pass a Magic Defense check each round spent inside of it to resist Chronic "Disease" and Chronic "Poison" status vs. the caster's original spell cast, and any dead creature inside of those Areas are raised as various types of Undead-, Dark-, Demon/Devil-, or Ghost/Spirit-type enemies. This effect lasts until the caster's concentration is broken.
  • Overwhelming Presence - The character exudes a powerful, intimidating spiritual pressure, causing all targets within (Mage Level) Areas to either pass a Magic Defense check or be magically forced to bow and submit themselves to the caster as if he/she were divine or had similar power over the characters. This effect lasts until the caster's concentration is broken.
  • Polar Midnight - The character is able to shroud an Area in deep, bone-chilling Darkness. This spell descends an area rapidly towards Absolute Zero with Dark energy, dealing Dark-element magical damage and inflicting Chronic "Freeze" status to all targets in that Area.
  • Symbol of Strife - The character places a runic symbol on a smooth, flat surface about an Area wide, and when it is triggered by another person crossing over it, inflicts Chronic "Confuse" status on all targets within the Area for (Mage Level) rounds.
  • Symbol of Vulnerability - The character places a runic symbol on a smooth, flat surface about an Area wide, and when it is triggered by another person crossing over it, inflicts Chronic "Feeble" status on all targets within the Area for 5 rounds.
  • Summon Monster IX - The character is able to summon a Level 9 Dark-element monster to fight for him/her for 5 rounds.
