For the necromancers in the audience: do you believe that you see/sense the dead stuck here or ‘beyond the veil’? For me, it’s mostly the latter.
What’s dead energy like for you? In my experience, it’s ink black, it’s absolutely still, yet it disintegrates everything that comes into close contact with it. It has power to erase absolutely everything.
People often speak of ‘sticky’ dead energy. That’s decay/entropy, IMO. Almost equally deadly, more nasty somehow, but it isn’t fully dead yet. And never shall it be. Dying isn’t death.
Also, how many of you have utilized said energy in your spells? If so, what do you ‘house’ it in? Sigils, human bones, graveyard dirt?
