The magic of darkness is characterized by particularly perverse and brutal rituals in which the organs of living or dead victims are an essential ingredient. Fissures are made in the fabric between the different planes of existence in order to release power from the demonic dimensions. The use of this kind of magic is strictly forbidden and is punished by burning at the stake or exile. Notwithstanding these harsh penalties, the numbers of dark brothers and sisters are not inconsiderable. The dark magicians' desire for power extending beyond the world of the living and into the realm of the dead is very strong. The most common practitioners are the Necromancers and the Dark Elf matriarchs.
