Necromancers can already sort of raise the dead.
9th level spell called Stasis Clone. Incredibly slow, but still able to raise the dead.

If you want to change Granted of the Mind and Body, you could do some more with the word "Grey", like Scholar of the Grey.

I'm bad at naming things when I run out of ways to re-use the same word.

Never interested in raising undead army but its alwasy nice to see some extra stuff for debuffing.
Yeah, deviantArt was good this time.

Gives some new bite to reason to those low level spells and new bark to the higher ones.
What I would like to see are more spells listed under the studies, but still balanced. Maybe if it was stretched over 10 levels, it would be easier to balance, I don't know. It's your call.
All in all, I like this and hope to use it at one point, either as a PC or as an NPC my players face.
Keep up the good work.
The problem with having studies for higher levels spells is that... well....
How do I make them better, but still powerful? Necromancy gets scary at high levels.

After all their fluff is "Grey" and based on raw manipulation of life force so their methods should be much more varied than the traditional Necromancer.
Nice argument. Will think about how to go about this.
