With The Elder Scrolls Online's Elsweyr expansion right around the corner, the first outlaw class is about to join the long-running multiplayer RPG with the arrival of the Necromancer. “In broad strokes, necromancy is about the creative manipulation of the soul, or animus, which is one of the basic building blocks of life in Tamriel,” explains Leamon Tuttle, ESO’s Loremaster. “Necromancers use their power to cast spells, bind souls into service, and use lesser Daedric spirits to reanimate corpses.”

Which, as expected is illegal and frowned upon. “The practice is frowned upon in most cultures, but some people such as the Redguards and Dark Elves see it as the ultimate blasphemy,” adds Tuttle. “To them, messing with their ancestors is a huge no-no, and organizations like the Mages Guild reject it on ethical grounds, since it involves messing with mortal souls.”

This means, depending on the spell or skill used, the denizens of Tamriel will react aggressively to necromancy even going so far as to alert the authorities. This doesn't apply to all Necromancy skills, but adds a new layer to the game as players will need to hide their true identities when out in public.

“It’s only things that we consider to be very obvious necromantic actions,” explains Kyle Nowak, the combat designer behind the Necromancer class. “There are abilities that are borderline, like Render Flesh, but raising bodies out of the ground is glaringly obvious and will get you in trouble.”
