Animate Corpse
 School  Necr.

   When this spell is cast upon a corpse of a humanoid the corpse will animate into a zombie or skeleton. This undead state will only last for a short time, 1 day per level of the caster. The animated corpse can be a medium (2E, 1 HD) skeleton 3E MM 165 or medium (2E, 2 HD) zombie 3E MM 191, caster's choice.

   Due to the instability of the spell when it is cast the animated subject has a 10% chance of not being under the caster's control. If this happens it will attack immidiately.

   The caster can only control as many undead hit dice as he has levels. This limit counts toward the animate dead spell limit also. In all other respect this spell is like animate dead, just weaker.
