Golems would be perfect for if we ever need to leave property unattended, and in general as gaurds.

Let's face it, golems are just better than zombies. They're tougher, stronger, and less terrifying to the peasants. A bit more expensive, but meh.

...Who is suddenly wanting a platinum golem?

Golemancy would require many souls. Bad option for our ethics

And again, necromancy would be unethical for other reasons.

We kill people left and right, and you guys are arguing that souls shouldnt be spent?
We need to eat people to survive, at least use SOME remnant of their body for something, whether it be body, or soul

It's already been explained, we don't get any afterlife if the souls of people who we effect don't carry suffering from us with them when we die, souls used as a power source don't go anywhere.
There's a reason that enchanting is taboo for us, it's not just cause.

We will probably kill plenty of people before we die anyways, who is to say we can't destroy any and all enchantments to free the souls?
No point in a useless enchant, just scratch the runes off

I don't think that's how it works, i believe the soul is *consumed* in the process of enchanting, into raw magical energy that is refined with additional magic and woven into an object.

Do we know if that's for real how it works?  It could just be our father's justification of his bullshit custom.

Alice seemed to know about it, and we've never talked with her about it.
