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
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.
