Gods do not have a monopoly on the energy generated by the faith of sentiant beings. Many 'Holy' or unholy relics come into being not from the direct intervention of the divine, but through the sincere belief of the masses. If enough followers can be convinced of the power of an item, then this faith will help make this a self-fufilling prophesy. Obviously this type of energy source is generally beyond the reach of normal PCs', but kings, high preists, and even demons could make use of this to create and power items.
A dark necromancer has discovered a way of making the magical energy cost of resurrection less than the energy he can gain by draining their life force. Given a sufficient supply of mind-drained minions, ultimate power beckons.
