Cooperation of the town Lords was very encouraging, at least at first. There were practically no usual bureaucratic problems as in other towns.
Archives were wide opened for my research in the history of the Necropolis town.
Such an attitude was very unusual for the undead creatures that have never been known for their warm welcome to strangers. Perhaps, my position of the researcher protected me and gave me a possibility to look into the undiscovered secrets hidden behind the boring repetition of names and titles; dates of births and deaths, victories and defeats on the pages of the thick volumes of necro chronicles.
On the second thought, I must admit that the reason was probably the tough conditions of the life in the new world which forced Necromancers to curb their tempers and be pleasant with neighbors, at least temporarily. Can't say that I wasn't glad for such an excellent opportunity. Though, such a behavior was suspicious and especially so when I have seen by my own eyes that all the rumors about how necro town was changed and weakened by the transporting through the magical portals were exaggerated and moreover, launched into circulation by the Necromancers themselves.
Working round the clock while I still have had the access to the old dusty books I couldn't fail to notice that something strange is going on with the wide known history of Necropolis. It was simply not right. The schoolbook facts were inconsistent with what was revealed for me in the archives. I think that finally the necro Lords became suspicious and I was lucky to escape with my head on the heads from the capital of Necromancers. However, I managed to take with me my precious notes, which I am happy to present to all those who is concerned with the history of the old world.
