Nod.

"And sometimes you get spontaneous necromantic occurrences, when there're too many bodies around and their death forces get tangled up."

"And you still have graveyards? Really?" She shakes her head to clear the thought. "Anyway, that's besides the point. We should figure out what we're going to do while we still have a spirit to translate."

Permalink

"Bodies in graveyards get their death forces obliterated first, what's dangerous is when you've got people quietly disposing of bodies for years in a bog because they don't know bogs preserve dead bodies. And other stuff like that."

"Oh, okay." It's... probably a bad idea to ask Ane to explain all the details of her magic, given everything. Although - "Your necromancy doesn't do transportation, does it?"

Permalink

"Not unless you want to be carried by a reanimated body, but I could do that if you did."

Permalink

"Nnnno, I was thinking more 'get me back home'."

Permalink

"That I wouldn't have the first idea how to start."

Permalink

"Yeah, me neither."

Permalink

"Don't apologize, not your fault. I'll figure it out somehow."

Permalink

"Okay. How does your magic work?"

Permalink

"Do you mean what does it do or how does it do it?"

Permalink

"I can communicate with the dead - they're not them, they're just an impression, I can't bring people back - animate bones, cleanse to prevent someone else from getting anything from the spirit, which is what I was offering, and... a lot of other things, really, but the limit seems to be that I can only affect living things, or what used to be living. It works by imbuing diagrams or other channels with energy which everyone has in varying amounts, though most people don't know how to manipulate it."

Permalink

"How would you use that to get back?"

Permalink

"If I knew I'd be doing it already, but we can do a lot with location, if we have the remains of someone we're oriented towards, and I don't know how it'll merge with your necromancy yet. I can at least try."

Permalink

Nod. "I don't know if your energy is like our energy, can I check?"

Permalink

"What does that involve?"

Permalink

"...Energy-sensing at you?"

Permalink

"Will that do anything other than check if I have your energy?"

Permalink

"...It would tell me things about your energy if you have it? Like if I look at you to see if you're naked or not I'm also going to see what you look like."

Permalink

"Sure, go ahead."

Permalink

 

She frowns.

"Nothing. That's eerie."

Permalink

"Does everyone here have some?"

Permalink

"Everything that's alive does. People, animals, plants..."
