I love magic. I love burning people. Recently, I also learnt how to bring them back to life.

I'm using the Raise Undead spell to raise enemies I've killed already, not mainly to aid me in battle, but just so I can kill them again. This provides a lot of experience in spell-casting.

However, after I've killed them again, they are reduced to an ash pile that cannot be reanimated.

Is there any kind of spell or another way to kill someone more than twice?

I miss the murder tag... – Wipqozn Nov 23 '11 at 19:50

Everybody misses murder. @ArdaXi - I suspect the answer to this is just "no," but as far as "kill something twice," I recommend summon familiar (or an atronach) for easily repeatable murder. – Ian Pugsley Nov 23 '11 at 20:11

Unless you're using console commands, there is no way to kill someone more than twice, as all spells will reduce them to a pile of ash, for the exact reason that you would be able to farm too much exp by resurrecting the same person over and over again.

It's disappointing, because I really wish I could kill Anise over and over whenever I get frustrated.

Do I want to know who that is? – Raven Dreamer Nov 24 '11 at 5:25
@RavenDreamer It's the lady in the shack near Riverwood, she always sends thugs if you steal even one thing from her (also, she has a hidden lab under her house, coz she's some kind of witch or something) but her thugs have killed all 3 of my low level characters at least twice each. – Mr Smooth Nov 24 '11 at 6:01
