So, my Wizard just got Tenure at a Wizarding university.

I need to think up at least 24-36 interesting and original lectures that he's going to give in his spare time.
Subject?
Necromancy and the non-evil uses of it. No actual spells, just theoretical of course and partially an ethics of magic course to compliment the Necrology aspect of it.
Problem is I suck at names.

Help me /tg/, you're my only hope, I need names for Necromantic subjects and lectures.

How about one about the general sociological role of the undead in various cultures? You could have ones comparing different models of undeath in different species and time periods. Say pointing out how some nations practice necromancy as a way to preserve the honored ancestors, thus making the undead a priveleged elite in their society.

Totally depends, mostly its all going to be about Necromancy from a scholarly perspective though.
Since the game is based in a world where Necromancy is a big no-no, this is a pretty unique and controversial step.

Necromantic basics: Classifications within this realm and beyond
Necromantic basics: The Rayabur Construct (a.k.a. the Simplex Construct) (2 parts)

But necromancy is going to be inherently disturbing simply because it's NECROMANCY. Maybe change the name?

How about calling it metapathology? Start googling terms from pathology - especially forensic pathology - and see how you can twist them to magic.

Actually, there's an idea. How about a lecture about the boon that necromancy could be to the field of criminal detection? Just summon up the ghost of the victim and say "who murdered you, sir? And would you be willing to testify to this under law?"

It is, but I can at least point out the arbitary nature of Necromancy vs Spirituality.
I mean, fucking christ, there's 3 other PCs in the party at least who have some kind of ancesteral connection or communicate with the dead in a way that's considered Okay.

Use that. Start borrowing shamelessly from their language and terms to describe necromancy in socially-accepted ways. That's going to be the quickest and most effective way to say "necromancy is something you already 50% approve of" - by just talking about stuff they already approve of while BEING A NECROMANCER.

D&D, we're using Pathfinder, but with the undead being more playing with fire, rather than out and out evil as per Pathfinder RAW.
So a Skeleton released from service might hunt someone down, but its more because of crude beastial instinct rather than because its directly channelling pure elemental malevolence.
And so there are ways around that.
But, naturally since most necromancers in D&D are MASSIVE DICKS and most good gods hate Necromancers; there is a stigma.

If it was a family member they could lie about it, forcing them to tell the truth would also be unethical. So if it happend (the murder) when family members were present it would be suspect. They ghost might not have even seen the killer and then decides to say someone they had disliked in life did it.

In this regard they are no different than any witness ever.

But bear in mind this is a setting where a decent chunk of the population can determine a person's moral alignment by looking at them in a special way. You can reasonably rely on the testimony from a Good-aligned ghost and could be generally aware you'd need to take the testimony of an evil one with a pinch of salt.

As for truth compulsion.. honestly, that's a whole different kettle of fish, but given that magical methods of compelling the truth would be objectively more effective and less cruel than mundane torture, I imagine the ethical objections and problems would be far less than you're imagining.

Maximinus of Rome was actually shorter than 8'6". Roman foot is 11.65 modern inches (29.6 cm). Modern foot is 12 inches (30.48 c). That means by sheer feet alone, he loses 2.77165 inches 7.04 cm. Toss in the additional subtraction of 0.69 cm per inch for the left over and you get another 4.14 cm off. So in total he actually loses 4.40157 inches, making him 8'2". And that isn't even assuming the most well known account on his height talked him up a fucking lot. Problem is, a lot of shit on that list uses different measurements.

To further clear it up, artwork and coinage depicts him with several traits of acromegaly. Which may mean he was significantly larger than people of his time, but considering the average height back then would have been around 5'3" to 5'6" with tall individuals (generally those being from outside of Rome) being around 5'9" he was realistically probably capping the height limit around 7'6" max with his actual heigh being between 6'3" to 7'3" imo. Beyond that he would be having some issues with circulation. Hell, even 6'4" would have been really fucking tall.

Necromics: Maintenance 101
-A beginner's course about daily maintenance of undead servants. Cleaning them, making them not smell like decaying flesh, and how to prevent the flesh from falling off.

Necromics: Macroeconomics
-Theories as to how the undead could potentially solve a future labor crisis. Lectures include basic history lessons about the past working conditions and how the undead may solve this and make life better for all. Also includes theories as to how to implement them into the modern economy.

Necromics: Ethics
-Ethical debates on whether the undead should be used for menial labor and when. Is it okay to keep a worker employed after his death?

Also, during the lecture he should start having sex with a female vampire, constantly screaming at the students "YOU CAN'T DO SHIT I HAVE TENURE"

I can't think of names for lectures, but I browsed through the PHB and came up with Astral Projection, Blight (pest control,) Death Knell as a (possibly) painless method of euthanasia, Clone for... Cloning, I can't think of anything specific in a setting where organ transplants aren't exactly necessary, Death Ward, Death Watch for hospitals if such a thing exists in your setting, Disrupt Undead, False Life, Gentle Repose, Ghoul Touch as a paralytic, Halt Undead, possibly Horrid Wilting if your DM allowed to specify something as minute as a tumor (maybe cancer treatment for giants?) Speak with Dead, and Vampiric Touch on an ally to save your life.

And that's only in the PHB.

human souls or animating energies:what propels our machines?

purely hypothetical discussion of morals in light of our ability to perceive the lands after life. (be sure to mention before you begin speaking that if any of your students have a revelation in this lesson, that the town guard does NOT share their Ubersmenchen worldview.)

anatomy of the human body: where can I best staple these grippers to?

one specialized servant or many simple ones to a task?
Add on to the above: maybe ask them to observe an ant colony in their spare time to see how they deal with problems.

Let us know how it goes, OP. I'm a big fan of necromancy and how to apply it to a setting without making it inherently evil (Of course with all the inherent temptation that makes so many bad dudes so bad) so this is interesting!

Wouldn't that be covered under Necronomics: Ethics?

That could just sort of be your intro piece to some of the issues brought up by Necromancy. There could be upper level courses that tackle specific, dense subjects.
