Don’t they both try and summon spirits (of the dead)?
The term medium or spiritualist widely used – in fact people quite often claim to be one of the other and their services are even advertised in the papers.
Necromancers are relegated to video games and fantasy novels, wearing long black cloaks and using cheesy dialogue, I have near heard of anyone claiming to practice that. So what is the difference, if any?

  1. Concrete dog, can we ourselves truly say if something is possible? A long time ago people said the technology we have now would be impossible and in the future a lot of things might exist we thought was impossible even now new creatures and discoveries are being uncovered so who are we to say it’s impossible?

  2. Necromancy is the summoning of the dead to communicate and receive information. However, usually someone is referred to specifically as a necromancer if they summon spirits of the dead by means of ritual or occult magic in order to receive divinatory information, and / or to request a special service of the spirit. A medium is a type of necromancer,, but this person has a different connection with spirits. They use spiritual gifts (for example clairvoyance) and act as a sort of channel for the spirits of the dead and the living to have open and direct communication. Mediums, in general, are more in the business of using spirit communication as a way to heal, either the spirits or the living; And necromancers seek more so to use spirits as a way to serve their own purposes and carry out their personal wills.

  3. Necromancers can summon skeletons and blood golems, create bone walls and shoot bone spears
    They can weaken their foes with curses and summon ghastly demons

  4. A medium would converse with the dead and then release them back to wherever they were before, a necromancer actively binds the dead and uses them for his own purposes.
    However neither things are actually possible.
