Create Undead[edit]

The corpse before you begins to stand up. Apparently the ritual worked, and you have a new servant.

Level: 3 Component Cost: 50 gp
Category: Creation Market Price: 25 gp
Time: 20 minutes Key Skill: Arcana
Duration: Permanent

You animate a corpse you have prepared into an undead creature. The result of your Arcana check determines the ability scores of your minion.

Arcana Result Check Strength Dexterity Wisdom Constitution Intelligence Charisma
5-10 10 4 6 9 1 2
11-15 14 6 8 10 1 3
16-20 16 7 9 11 1 4
21-25 18 8 10 13 1 5
26-30 20 9 11 15 1 6
31+ 24 11 13 17 2 7

Once the ritual is complete a Zombie Minion will be under your control. Outside of encounters it can be commanded to do simple tasks, but nothing beyond moving or breaking things. A common tactic is to use the minion as a pack mule, to keep the burdens on fellow party members light. There is no limit to the number of minions a single necromancer may command, but when you attempt to create another minion you incur a -5 penalty to you Arcana check. If your arcana check result is below 5 the ritual fails and the materials are used up, including the corpse.
