Magic exists in limited form in Dwarf Fortress. It normally only shows up in the form of necromancy and ghosts. With modding, however, it is also one of the many ways that interactions can be manifested.
Necromancy is obtained in Adventurer mode by reading a slab that contains the secrets of life and death, traditionally obtained via necromancer towers (
I). Their towers are often packed tightly with undead and usually more than one necromancer, who will not hesitate to raise any fresh corpses you make, or even the limbs of their minions that you chop off. But of course, if you can overcome the danger, the power is yours.
