Death magic is a long lost form of magic, centuries ago death mages were able to control death and prolong their own life. this, however, came at a great cost to the mage. Death magic encompasses the use of necromancy to raise and control the dead.
Death magic was largely prohibited across all of Valeria from the instant it was discovered by the authorities. Death magic was run underground and many mages found practising death magic were executed in a mass campaign to rid the world of these mages.
In current Valeria there are currently no known mages that have the ability to practise death magic.
