"The reason I put "necromancy" as that, is due to the fact that the Ximaxian system does not have a class named necromancy. Spells that deal with bringing life to the dead are spread across the various classes of fire magic. However, nothing prevents a mage to be taught by somebody somewhere about the dead and the magic of animating them and all that."

AFAIK, necromancy does not bring life to the dead.  It merely uses the dead bodies as puppets which the mage controls.  Creating actual undead will probably end up being Xeua, as I don't see how fire magic can ever bring something back to life.

Don't stop.  If you stop, you may as well quit right now.  

Yes, it is possible for someone to learn just about necromancy.  However, the magic system is in shambles at this point and we are not sure exactly how one would go about this.  But there is no problem with someone only learning one type of spell within an element.  And I do suppose it's possible to use more advanced spells without learning the full basics of lower levels (using necromancy without the ability to create or manipulate fire for example) but that would only happen in private training.
