Tethered to a threadbare string, to a world that is no longer yours to take;
to a fate that is long past due. The burden of your chains are a solace
to the hollow within.

Necromancer by *SARYTH
The word is adapted from Latin necromantia, itself borrowed from post-Classical Greek νεκρομαντεία (nekromanteía), a compound of Ancient Greek νεκρός (nekrós), “dead body”, and μαντεία (manteía), “prophecy or divination”; this compound form was first used by Origen of Alexandria in the 3rd century CE.
In other words, it is a form of magic involving communication with the dead by summoning their spirit or raising them bodily – for the purpose of foretelling future events or discovering hidden knowledge.
It is most likely evolved from shamanism, which calls upon spirits such as the ghosts of ancestors.
