The Necropolis is a blasted and ravaged city, perpetually shrouded in darkness, a barren warren of mausoleums and crypts, thick with the bodies and souls of the departed. The Necropolis is considered neutral territory for practitioners of Necromancy, a forbidden college of magic. The Necropolis is used as a sanctuary for necromancers, a place to safely exchange knowledge and spells and practice their dark arts in safety. No one necromancer will strike down another while within the boundaries of the dead city, or else bring down the wrath of every other dark practitioner within reach…and perhaps another even greater power.
There is much debate as to why the Mage Guild has never moved against the Necropolis despite their fierce and adamant condemnation of necromancy.
