Anatomy?

Hey guys, I was wondering how a knowledge of human and animal anatomy would show via skills and knowledges. Would it be a set of knowledges you acquire through other skills like biology or medicine? Could I get an understanding of anatomy through necromancy, like Necromancy: The Anatomy of a skeleton?

Thank you for any help :)

I would say medicine and surgery would be the most likely place to get that knowledge.

Really, it's up to the individual grader, and whether they decide it should fit better under surgery or Necromancy. You could always get the knowledge through investigating necromancy, but I'm not sure if the knowledge would end up being awarded as a necromancy knowledge.

I know personally I wouldn't give it as Necromancy, simply because magic knowledges are supposed to be related to the actual practice of magic, and that would be a knowledge that would fit much better under surgery. (We don't have a biology skill).

I will, however, leave this up to Plague for the final call.

Ah that makes sense. It shouldn't contribute to the magic if the magic was not a part of the knowledge. I just meant it as he gained the knowledge via necromancy. But surgery makes much more sense.Thank you Golem!
