Undeath researchers, like many things, rose in numbers as a reaction to the break of the life-death cycle. A researcher can live anywhere or be anything, though there is a high concentration of these academics in Pilk – a city that supports many places of higher learning.
Researchers often collaborate heavily with other researchers. Their studies can be funded and aided by cities or universities. Usually, it is not hard to find a patron as mostly everyone feels the pressure to find a solution to the undead problem.
