The dead walk.

Necromancy was a school of magic whose spells manipulate the power of death, unlife, and the life force.[1] A wizard who specialized in the necromantic school was called a necromancer.[2]

Spells involving the undead made up a large portion of this school, including animate dead and finger of death.[1] Highly focused on the Negative Energy Plane, most spells from this school drained abilities.[citation needed]

This school was the one most associated with lichdom, a process that allowed the caster to live (or rather, exist) in an undead state indefinitely by securing their essence in a receptacle known as a phylactery.[citation needed]
