    'sup necro-bros

    So I'm taking Prof. Phyl's class , you know Ascension to Lichdom? I've got the textbook and study guide and you know what, that thing is 1500 pages - hell i'm not reading that bro, I've got a life.

    Thing is I have to rise as a lich by noon Wednesday to pass his class and if I don't pass his class I die. Don't want that one second bros - got better things to do in my afterlife than being some prick's zombie minion.

    So you guys who have already Risen, help a bro out, eh? What are the horrible deeds rituals you did before you took the potion and came back as Undead? Come on guys it's almost Tuesday now, gotta help a bro out, weren't you guys just as bummed about the final project as I am?

    Well, I only got a B average, but I think I can help you out, I did my finals project in an afternoon with some help.

    What I did was summon a Fire elemental, infuse it with enough negativity to almost push it into Ash elemental territory, did the same with the other traditional elements. Vacuum isn't really necessary, but it mixes the salt/ash/dust better and gives it more negative kick. Then I had an artificer buddy of mine help me bind all of them to the hourglass. It's important that at least ONE of you can make that shit Wondrous, otherwise we're wasting our time here.

    So now, you've got a fiercely negatively-attuned object for your phylactery, you can do the usual bindings and rituals to start transferring your soul into it. When you're finished, all you need to do is turn the thing upside down, and when all that Ash/Dust/Salt is at the bottom, you'll be a lich, presto.

    I should note however that there are a couple of downsides to this method. First of all, it's a pain in the ass convincing those elementals to help you out, and subjugating them can be even harder. And trust me, you do NOT want to know what happens if you other turn that thing upside-down again....

    If we need undead, we just summon one for a while.
    Of course, I don't deal with them. Nasty smell never leaves, even when they do.
    I summon nature spirits and celestials. As long as I keep my nose clean, they keep me comfortable.
    Also, I have a deal with the church of a certain goddess of pleasure. I can summon pleasure slaves for 8 hours at a time once per day.
    Before you get the wrong idea, I don't use this for myself. I use it for the clergy's rituals and for the nobility who want all the fun without any of the bastard heirs in a few decades.
    tl;dr: I'm fukken rich man, I can still eat and use my dick, and I'm respected and loved. Not a bad deal.

    I confess to know little of spellcraft - such things I leave to the shamans and farseers of my people - but I do know this: magic is largely a matter of focus and willpower, both in using it and fighting against it. And one can easily agree there are few others that can rival a barbarian in such matters of determination.

After you return, he determines if the epic is still told a hundred years later. If it is, welcome to the bard faculty! Your first assignment is writing another epic, this time to last for 1000 years.

    Well, it was more like field study.
    I had six months to learn all I could about nature spirits and elementals. I was to procure at least one item capable of holding a bound elemental lord permanently, and I had to leave the tribe on good terms.
    Ask the dean for paperwork, they're pretty cool about it. The divination stuff is pretty primitive, but you can't argue with taking drugs and being ordered to fuck young women to increase the high and satisfy the body completely.
    It's to help train your astral awareness so remote viewing becomes easier. Eventually, their prophets can stand on hot coals with a sword in their gut and still cast completely, because they're so comfortable with leaving their body.

    Only certain people can weave energies in that way, and you'll easily be in your third year before you even begin practical study. Before then, it's all physical training, theory, and drills.
    I'd take another look at the basic schools first. Sure, there's a hundred of us to each swordsage, but we have more or less complete control over reality within our respective areas of learning. You learn combat techniques only. Face it, you'll only have the life of a soldier to look forward too.

    Oh no...has nothing to do with that final exam thing about "having to kill a lich". Anyway, that's not true, we just give a skeleton a wand of lightning and kill that...honest. That's definitely the exam, and I'm not terribly desperate. At all.

    Things that are dead should remain so. It angers the spirits of one's ancestors and pains the soul of oneself to fight against the proper way of things - that the living die once and do not return from that death to live again. This is why those who exist beyond the grave are so full of hate and torment - they know their very existence is an offense to the gods.

    So, I just had a client come in. I promised him a stone that creates a normal fire whenever it is struck by a piece of metal (put in fireplace, hit with poker, boom, instant ambiance!).
    He's pissed because he thought it would create fires wherever he wanted. He came in with burned hands and demanded that I not only refund him, but pay for his medical expenses as well.
    I showed him the contract and where the exact effects of the item were described in detail. He ripped them to shreds.
    I set my guards on him. I have two roper statues that can become real ropers for a total of one hour a day each. I use them for situations like this. They held the guy still while I called the guard, showed them my copies of the contract, and also slapped him with attempting to evade a contract (because he tore them up).
    I may be nice, but I'm not taking shit from a wannabe arsonist. Anyone else have any mixups like this?

    If you have a lot more money, I can make a statue that turns into the same girl for X amount of time every day/week/month/whatever. She'd even keep her memories from previous times, too! Sort of like a pocket wife!
    Only issue is: They aren't real, in a sense. They're automatons programmed to react like real people. They have no souls, no real feelings, and no personality outside their programming. Still, it's nice to have a warm body to lay beside some nights!

    Damnit, this is why the Applied Theurgy major gets such a bad rap. Yes, some of the gods do take a hostile stance toward magic. But guess what? WE USE MAGIC, TOO. Same shit that all the other little spellslingers use every day, with only the font of our power being any different.

    Actually, no. I take that back. They're no different. The same ambient magic that permeates the various universes is used by god and wizard alike. Theurgists (like me and I reluctantly say you) just have it channeled through a god first.

    Man. I wish more people understood that. Being an Oghman Theurgist is hard sometimes, because all the other students just want to go crusading or prosyletize, when they could be brushing up on their spellcasting like they should be! How hard is it to apply yourself to something that doesn't require you to swing a mace, guys? (No offense to you Practical Violence majors.)

    Shattering? No, just being exactly what I expect of any jumped-up cannibal and bone-worshiper. That you put threat to someone for simply putting voice to what everyone says is proof positive. That you don't deny is further evidence.
    So I ask you, is truth offensive to you and your ancestors? Is merely speaking the truth something shameful, to be dealt with brutally? Is that the measure of honor to your kind?

    I say this is truth because you had the opportunity to say otherwise but chose not to. Would you threaten to draw steel on a child who spoke of what his or her playmates spoke of as the truth or would you correct them and move to more permanent solutions after they persist in error?

    You disgust me. Not for your primitive ways, but for your hypocrisy of claiming to honor those who passed before you and then acting as if their traditions and their acts are matters of shame. I imagine your ancestors feel much the same.

    So yes, kill me if you must, but know that my blood will further mar your honor in that you were to shameful of who you are to take a moment to correct an errant child if I am wrong or proudly embrace your people if I am right.

    I though I saw another gun user in Archery. I also tend to use a rifle but my favorite weapon is the pump action shotgun. I got a few alchemist/artificer friends that give me some alchemist shells every month or so. In return I tend to help them out with the ladies, or if they're desperate I keep a few zombie hookers around. Kept fresh via necromancy, they're just like a real hooker. Except you don't pay, and are disease free.

    Every class of importance comes with its danger.
    As a translocations mage, I have to practice for hours everyday so to not some day blink while leaving my brain behind.
    Especially given that once, in second year, while learning how to apport small objects to my hands I instead somehow managed to apport a heavy iron sphere right into my stomach.
    That wasn't fun at all.

    I dunno about Principles of Altruism, but Universal Wizarding, and it's successor classes Universal Theory and Unified Arcana both look really tempting. Hard to get into, though, but I shouldn't have too much trouble having worked so long under a god of knowledge. I've already read some of the coursework. It's amazing!

    The afterlife benefits package does sound tempting, and you're right, angels are very nice people (and nice to look at, too~). They do tend to be single-minded, though, which makes it hard to have a good conversation with them.

    The Hrig... I know some things of them, though not much. They are proud people, almost boastful. If they ask you to tell them of a great deed of yours, be sure to speak boldly, and do not fear embellishing the truth to make for a good tale - but do not lie. Just as their totem salamander is said to walk through fire unscarred, they can tell when a lie burns the lips of he who speaks it, and to purposely lie to one of them is a dire insult. Also, it is likely, should they find you favorable, that they will offer you a fine horse or goat when you leave. Take it, even if you need it not, for they consider it rude to reject a gift of parting, as it suggests they are unworthy to see you again, even if you do not intend to actually return.

    I know truth. I strive to speak only truth, and thus to honor my ancestors. Your words are only lies - your ancestors surely must weep in shame when you open your mouth to speak.

    So, Good deeds? I'll have to give those a try. I'm more a 'True Neutral' kind of guy, but only because I focus on books and learning and the moral requirement of objectivity in all intellectual pursuits, than because of some disagreement with the credos of other alignments. I think I might dabble a bit in Evil first. Just to see what it feels like. Nothing, you know, TOO extreme. Just a little petty evil here and there to try it.

    Because most sorcerors tend to be arrogant, self-centered shitstickers with a trumped up sense of their own worth. We get that a lot on the divine side of things, with the Blessed Souls. Yes, you've been handpicked by a god to channel his or her or its might directly, but that doesn't make you special.

    Remember, just because you have great talent in something doesn't mean you don't have to apply yourself. Most of the Blessed Soul students have failing marks in every class because they can't be arsed to do the work.

    Humility and hard work's the key. Talent just helps.

    We of the northern lands are not like those in the cities, who quarrel and seek to war over our gods and which is best. If you know of some gods that some northern clans follow, then it is likely the Hrig follow them as well, and if not, then surely they will teach you of their gods - we fight over more important things than whose gods are better, like hunting grounds and where to camp in the bitter winters. If a man says to me that his gods of wind or sky are better than my mountain-god Cruach, then I laugh at him, he laughs at me, then we feast together. The gods do not fight between themselves who is better, so why should we fight to decide such a thing for them?

    I see. In the northlands, our gods are strict and stern - as many things are in our world - but judgements many would think as harsh or cruel is done fairly; few northlands gods are truly Evil, and those that are have no worshipers... or at least, none who admit to worshiping them. They are beings of death and fear, not admiration and supplication.

    Well, there are a few ways.
    First, if there's an antimagic zone anywhere, go stand in that for a while. There is one in the basement, in the Enchantment classes somewhere, unless they moved it. If she enters it, she should disappear unless she isn't summoned.
    If she isn't summoned, that can only mean she was Called. Calling is different than summoning. It brings a creature here on a semi-permanent basis for extended tasks. Normally, a bargain has to be made for a calling to work. Summoning puts chains on the summoned creature, while callings require ceremony and diplomacy.
    If you Called her, she may be around for a long time. Try stopping and asking her what her business is, and if she is unwilling to make a deal, that you have no use for her.
    Reject any and every deal she offers. Either she'll give up and un-Call herself, or you might find out other stuff, like... maybe someone else called her and made her follow you?
    Whatever you do: Don't fuck her, don't kiss her, don't hug her, don't even hold her hand. You won't even realize your life force is being drained. Remain strong, and attack her if all else fails. Succubi are demons of stealth and trickery, and cannot stand up to a full assault.
    Good luck, kid.

    Well, first you're going to need to become some form of undead (I found shade works best). Due to your undeath, you only need your brain and heart to survive.

    You then take mythril, adamantine, and cold iron into a ritual smelting process to make quasitine, a panplanar metal capable of surviving time travel. The process is long and expensive, so being a shade allows you to replace one part at a time.

    The last bit is to kill a shardmind. you'll take their crytal heart and mind and translocate them into your core, where you then overpower the remaining soul with a phylactery ritual.

    From there you can choose to shard your soul, allowing you to create duplicates of yourself without use of conjuration. It also allows you to separate your emotions as well as ensure your continued existence by leaving a duplicate at end of time so you can port your shards there and reconstruct.

    Really, this process renders you nigh invincible. It just requires you to have ample time, as well as time travel ability.

    Also, when you're done, you should look me up. I'm still working on mapping out the totality of the multiverse spacetime.

    "Lawful Evil"? Bah. Mere words. I hold no belief in the ways your scholars measure such things - Evil is evil, it has no laws as men do, only convenient borders it can cross or stop at when it pleases it or suits its goals.

    Evil is when the Grey Lord kills the wintergrass so it starves your cattle and their corpses poison your rivers so that your family dies when it is too cold to go forth and seek better lands. Evil is when She Who Hates slays a firstborn son fresh from his mother, when a man only has daughters otherwise, and is too old to raise another son to carry on his family name. Evil is when a warrior, rather than seek his fellow warrior to fight, pursues the weak and unskilled that he might have victory without effort. That, my friend, is evil.

    Or it could be totally innocent, but you're right. Don't drop your guard. If you want it to work for you, you're going to have to apply yourself and push things along a bit. And stay vigilant, of course.

    Also, I'd love to meet the fiend who could bust through my wards. Tough as greensteel, they are. Still, no sense in tempting fate. I'll see if I can lean on a buddy of mine who's even better at wardcraft. If, that is, you decide to keep her around.

    But then where would be the fun of watching how this plays out? Skipping straight to the end?

    ...sorry, trying not to go overboard on the whole Evil thing. It does feel pretty awesome, and the schadenfreude is a definite plus. I'm new to non-Neutral alignments, so it's kind of going to my head.

    Actually, Evil (capital E) is measurable and quantifiable. If you skim through the textbook for 'Mechanics of Horror' you'll find a scale detailing just that. You can, in fact, hold a unit of Evil (called a Curry, not to be confused with Curie which is radiation) in a container. It's tricky, and expensive, but I've seen it done.

    Good's harder to do, but there's been research into it.

    Law and Chaos are also quantifiable and measurable, though measuring Chaos is an effort in futility since its state is so fluid (or not) that it makes it essentially meaningless to try. And stabilizing it enough to get an accurate reading usually renders the whole point moot anyway. But it can be done. Just have to be careful about it, is all.

    Actually, it can. I've done it in the lab many times.

    Kilonazi is the most widely used industry term because that's the usual quantity in most Evil things people study or work with. The most basic unit of Evil is the Curry. Ten Curries make a Price. One Hundred Prices make a Nazi. A thousand Nazis make a Kilonazi, and a thousand Kilonazis make a Hitler.

    The Outsider system is flawed.

    True evil is made by choice, evil outsiders are by default evil, their bodies are evil, their thoughts are evil, the entire bio-system is evil.

    Ultimate evil is committed by beings that clearly could choose to do better, but who chose otherwise.

    Good and evil are subjective, yet we have planes suffused with it. We can feel it when we go there or hold natural materials from those planes. How do we know the exact Evil power of a liter of evil fluid compared to how much is in the Nether Chalk I use for Abyssal summonings? We really can't, because Evil can't exist in a vacuum. We can only compare it to Good and say "Yep, that's a lot more evil than this is."

    It was named for the person who discovered how to quantify it. The rest are all naming conventions he used from his native world. Like how we use the Curie to measure radiation, and Watts to measure electricity. Those are all people's names. Pretty common, actually.

    Which is why we use the Curry and not the Outsider scale. At least, any serious researcher does.

    Here's the thing. Magic works. Magic follows a sane, logical process and it increases efficiency and gets results. The magical method is the greatest creation of sentient society. Now, I get it. You're a luddite, and you were raised that way. That's okay. It's even okay if you don't want us to make your life better.

    Basic Wilderness Survival. It's required by all OUT students, and most other colleges as well. We're not unsympathetic to you, chief. It's just that neither of us is morally superior to the other. And there is great value in knowledge, even of the meanest and most simple sort. Oghma, and his students, and most gods of knowledge, hold your tribal ways and hard-won knowledge in just as high esteem as my rarified academia.

    All knowledge has value, bro. It's just how relevant to the current situation it is that makes it worth knowing. Basic Wilderness Survival does nothing for me in an academic institution, but I'm still glad I know it.

    It's because your people are doomed if you don't become like us.

    Our system may not be the best for personal happiness. In fact, I can pretty much guarantee it's not. But you know what it is the best at? Strangling any other modes of civilization it encounters.

    We will inevitably come to your lands for their lumber, and their ores, and their water and pastures and farmland and anything else that we deem of use. And you will not be able to stop us forever, any more than the land can resist the tide. To fight us, you must become us, and that will murder your society as effectively as our actively murdering you would.

    Your only hope is to find a place so worthless that our civilization would never want it, and even then the ecological effects of our civilization are still going to overwhelm you in the end.

    And without it? What if somehow, you were cut off from your arcane incantations? Could you survive? I doubt it. You have grown reliant on your spellcraft, it is to you as a crutch is to a wizened elder. Take it away and it sounds as if you will falter and fail where others such as me will manage to press on and survive. Yes, you have your magic, and it is of great worth to you... but are you of any good without it?

    I do not argue with your numbers and your reasons - even my people understand the value of avoiding waste. What I question is the point of trying to measure and calculate the worth of Good and Evil itself, as if they were things as solid and definite as the meat from a calf or the timbers of a fence. You cannot determine the weight of a kind gesture, or measure the height and length of a cruel thought. It is foolish.

    It's not a bad idea. Both options The insular academic and corporate circles of Necromancy mean any volunteer with be in demand outside those circles, and you'll get a good pedigree if you ever do decide to get a more traditional Necromantic job. Witchcraft has a lot of overplay with Necromancy but it's a completely nontraditional learning environment. The way witchcraft is learned, even the way its used, is nothing like the standarised academic system someone learns Necromancy or Conjuration in. You'll have to find a tutor, too - most commonly another witch, but you can seek a magical patron if you'd prefer (the first real witches are thought to have learned this way and it is usually seen as more prestigious). Just be prepared for crippling student debt if you go that route; your choice of payment plan will be very important.

    I'm not boasting. I'm just stating fact, a truth that's existed ever since the dawn of agriculture: when hunter-gatherers and farmers meet, the hunter-gatherers are pushed aside. It's a matter of numbers, and a matter of how much power can be put into the hands of the warriors. Your people still survive because nobody has had reason to come to your home in vast numbers, and to keep coming for years on end, until your people are exhausted and broken by the effort required to resist an inexhaustible swarm of invaders.

    I wish I could say that the world is some other way; I bear your people no ill will, and the world will be a lesser place without them in it. But at this point, the only way to save your people from their eventual fate would be to murder my own and their entire civilization, and one thing I expect we both agree on is that one's own family and tribe must be valued above all else.
