Yes, that would be necromancy, I suppose. The thought did cross my mind. I
wouldn't allow it...not for PCs. That's not my kind of campaign.

But it should be possible to work out rules. I worked out a kludge a while
back that allowed the equivalent of necromancy in Glorantha using standard
rules...made it the basis of a big adventure. Nasty, but interesting.
