    Quote from Chronocide: “So is the logic that the Dark Gods can't create/benefit from undead because they are part of the Mother Cosmos, at least in a metaphysical capacity? ” Sort of, but also they're just not that interested in that kind of power, they're much more interested in getting their own supernals across to the mortal realm or (in the case of warriors) inflicting destruction by themselves, not via puppets. Plus necromancy is very rare and difficult to learn - very few cultists would ha…

    Yes, metaphysically the mortal plane is cosmos and the immortal is chaos, though there are a lot of nuances. As you say, the beings that live on each side don't necessarily "serve" or care about that distinction - many supernals serve cosmos and many mortals serve chaos. So if you're asking about alignment, undead are aligned to neither "side". If you're asking about their metaphysical constitution, undead are the same as living beings - they have a physical body made of mortal matter, and they …

    That's not really true. Most factions fall somewhere in between or are not particularly related to either - elves and other factions that use cosmology do so because they find a balance between chaos and cosmos, for example. It's only really the SA and WDG/DL which are strongly aligned.

    Quote from Chronocide: “But regarding your statement, is it that the dark gods "Cannot" create/control undead, or that they "Do not" create/control undead? ” Probably both. We don't have any mechanism for gods or supernals practicing necromancy - we have never discussed that, so I'd say that gods can't create undead. Additionally, the dark gods would not want to do so - they gain nothing by it, their goals are chaos and destruction, not returning life to things they already killed. Quote from Ch…

    Quote from Krokz: “Would a Vampire have a Cult that worships and summons dark gods? ” No. We've made these two worlds quite separate. Vampires are pathologically opposed to all religions and gods, and that includes dark gods. Quote from Krokz: “Can Daemons possess zombies or vampires? ” Hm. Technically I suppose so. Daemons can possess any physical object, so much like a living person they would be taking control of the undead vessel from the soul that already inhabits it. However, I do not thin…

    An undead cultist would not be part of the DL/WDG/cultists universe, they would be part of the VC/UD. Undeath is a specific condition with a precise definition in T9A - it involves putting a soul into a corpse, either by vampire necromancy or some other condition affecting a population, in the case of an undying dynasty. The Dark Gods do not create or control undead creatures. Let me know if that answers the question, happy to expand as necessary.
