What's really dumb is in fantasy literature, and mythology, life and death usually ARE two sides of the same coin. Someone who can heal you probably can also harm you, magically-speaking. Only D&D would backtrack on that and decide to try and make them entirely separate coins.I mean in truth the school of Necromancy should be renamed 'Animancy' or 'Biomancy' and be about the entire circle of life and death, in which case healing would go here. But the Necromancer concept is so ingrained in D&D that no one has really ever tried broaching the idea of changing the school's name to make the healing spells really fit. So what can you do?
