Dark Plague
9th-level necromancy (ritual)
Casting time: 12 hours
Range: 20 mile radius
Components: V, S, M (12,000 gp worth of black diamond dust, plus one unholy relic that becomes the focus of the spell)
Duration: Indefinate


When the spell is cast, one unholy relic becomes the focus of this spell, and the following effects occur as days pass:

  • Staring on the 1st day, dark clouds dim the sky.
  • Starting on the 2nd day, plants within the radius of the spell begin to wither
  • On the 3rd day, all dead bodies revive as zombies and skeletons. They do not obey the casters orders, but will ignore the caster and any creatures the caster wishes, unless provoked.
  • Dead bodies continue to revive within one day after death.

The spell can end with a Wish, by using a 9th level spell slot to cast Dispel Magic anywhere within the boundaries of the spell, destroying the focus, removing the focus from the spell's area, or by killing the caster.
