      Why can't we talk to the corpses right after killing them, having to swap characters out every time just to do so doesn't really add anything to the game

      We already forcing them back into the land of the living, might as well make them talk too regardless if you're the killer or not

      • So two things
        1: I'm pretty sure you can get this spell as an Arcane Trickster (Lv. 3).
        2: Use this in conjunction with "Speak With Dead" spell after you've killed your target to question them so they cannot identify you as their killer. (I'm unsure if this works in-game, about to go test it out, but I thought of this playing my Warlock.)

          Can talk to the dead archer at the grove gates, dosent do much, reveals his sisters name, former professions and where his belongings are hid, but you can already highlight the bag with 'ALT' key

            You can cast this on Gomwick, the dead body near the dog below blighted village. He tells you about letters he had to deliver
