searching through old records 5 Years, 7 Months ago Karma: 5  
I was wondering if anybody could tell me what happend to the old necromancer sect and why they are no longer a part of the tower ?
Did they become the Dymwan ? or were they they just to much trouble to have around ? did they become traitor even ?
Just a curiosity so any knowledgable thoughts would be appreciated, I will also be following ichabod on the next adventure from the tower and I like to know a bit about any enemy i may come into contact with.

As I recall, so many Necromancers were lost during the Agoth Campaign that the guild was considered too small to be viable. Those that were left became members of the Reapers, or were supposed to.

I suppose it's perfectly possible that some may have gone to other towers though I'm not aware of any specific examples.

hmmm Thank you
I had not considered that former members may have joined other sects especially my own.

Vallan,

To add to the conversation, I believe that when the Necronomicon was retrieved and the unfortunate relationship between a Necromancer and the Realm Lords of the Plane of the Sleepless Dead was common knowledge it became distinctly less attractive.

You can read it for yourself from the archives. It is most illuminating, especially on the matter of the spheres.

Ah that is very enlightening indeed.
I see now why the guild was terminated and why the necromancers moved to other sects.
I had the unfortunate privaleledge of meeting an Avatar of Cardinaris last year, a very unpleasent memory to be sure.
Thank you Ichabod for pointing me in the right direction.

i have just been in the Archives doing some research and i have read a lot of disturbing reports on the veer.
i seem to recal these were mentioned the last time we adventured together.
Do you think these will be a threat on our journey and are you fully prepared to deal with them if they are.
i am still young and new to the priest hood so my knowledge at the moment on a great many subjects is very lacking .

Vallan,

Regrettably, I believe dealing with a Vere would be well outside of my capabilities and, although I never met one, by all reports even the mightiest adventuring groups struggled to combat them. Randolphin had first hand experience I believe.

Fortunately, however, I further believe that all the Vere were destroyed with the end of the Agoth Experiment. That said I, until recently, believed that all the Soul Gardens had been destroyed but now we've located one on the POTSD!

The Vere were powered by one (or more) Soul Garden(s) which, as I understand it, are a collection of spirit essences.

The crystal we retrieved at Gilden Far was a Vere essence crystal, so essentially a very strong power source. I believe these crystals were used to start each Soul Garden, contained the essence of a powerful spirit (a once living creature) and all other essences added to the garden were tied to it. I like to think of it as the either the foundation of a tall tower or the keystone of an arch (without which the arch would fall).

I'm concerned that Tiresias' 'child' may turn out to be something along the lines of a Vere, but I don't think he has access to a Soul Garden to power it, so I expect not. It's probably just a worry of mine.

So glad you're taking an interest in these matters, so many seem to concentrate purely upon their own narrow fields of study when in truth there is so much else to learn.

Ichabod.
