Does it really count as 'hurting kids' if the orphans in question all have terminal diseases and I'm basically granting them immortality?
Actually that'd be me.

Hm, necromantic death god disliking death for necromantic purposes if it's children. Bet there's an interesting story there. Does he have children? Might answer that question.

Well that settles it, I'm off to go make undead familiars/apprentices out of terminally ill orphans!

I can see it now.

"Yaay, Poppy Skelling-ton, Poppy Skelling-ton, please tell us a bedtime story!"

"Yah Mr. Skelling-ton, tell us a story! Please!"

"Alright, alright my little atropals... You see, way back, late into the night I was setting up a ritual, and was trying to stop the blood from coagulating..."

Yeah, that's probably what will happen. But I WILL have little undead orphan apprentices.

Rossy, what would happen if I tried to infuse all the souls in the world into myself?

My guess? Probably impossible. If actually done though, I'd guess you'd rival that of the gods. But at that point, what's it worth? There's no land anymore, no people, only that of the gods. None of the living or the undead, just barren rock and sand.

A kind of pyrrhic victory, I imagine.

All of that heavily assuming that would actually rival the gods, and actually be theoretically possible though.

I'd worry about owning all the souls and collecting them before thinking about that.

If you ever get the chance, ask Mingan, Shin, Kuro, or Pellegrin about how they became gods. Not that just anybody knows it for any of them aside from Kuro.

Ah, so that's how you manage godhood then.

A couple of questions about magic/other stuff:

  • Is there such a thing as 'chaos magic' which... is pretty much what it sounds like?
  • Can I learn some sorta spell that fires souls like a cannon?
  • Can 'ecosystems' of death and undeath be set up?

Sort of, and part of it.

Yes. What do you think it sounds like? xD
I'm sure you could invent one.
Yes.

Think of chaos as more than just a random roll chart spell. All innate powers stem from Chaos. Before Arnum, Mingan, Coranthiir, Malu, Chelan, and assorted representatives of the races created the semi-order of the current power system, there were only two kinds of power: Arnum's divine magic and chaos magic.

So, you could equally call it Free Magic in the unbound sense, Wild Magic, or Elder Magic. Yes, all of those are prestige classes. B, A, and S.

In a sense, current Chaos magic involves harnessing bits of chaos-stuff with will and ritual. Specializing in it lets you put more in, then shaping natural chaos, and then directly invoking raw Chaos and manipulating it to your ends.  It's kind of a Jack of all trades class, only limited by will and imagination.

With CHAOS, you can do EVERYTHING, NOTHING, SOMETHING, and/or ANYTHING.

ANYTHING is a GENERAL, NON-SPECIFIC ENTITY and/or ACTION.
SOMETHING is a SPECIFIC, UNKNOWN ENTITY and/or ACTION.
EVERYTHING is all KNOWN/possible ENTITIES and/or ACTIONS.
NOTHING is all IMPOSSIBLE/unknown ENTITIES and/or ACTIONS.

Chaos magic is not just LOL TACO RANDOM QUERTY VAGINAS HILARITY. Think of it as PRIMAL MAGIC, as the RAW COSMOS made MANIFEST. Think of QUANTUM-LEVEL BULLSHIT making THINGS HAPPEN. Or NOT HAPPEN.
