Causes all affected targets to be transformed into the undead should they die while under the spell's effect.
Any living humanoid (aside from a select few of your choice) within a mile of the caster must make a either a wisdom or constitution save (Whichever is higher) or become branded with dark energies. They will be unaware of this effect, but every night that it is active upon them they will have terrible nightmares and may make a Wisdom (Insight) check to realize they have been cursed. Should they die while under this effect, (should their bodies not be cleansed or destroyed) they will reanimate 24 hours later (Or one hour later, if they were killed via necrotic damage) as a random undead. The Undead will be under your control and remain so indefinitely. Additionally, all undead created by this spell are immune to all effects that turns undead.
When an undead is created via this spell, roll a d20. On a 1 to 3 their flesh is seared away and they become a skeleton. On a 4 to 12, they become a zombie. On a 13 to 17, they become a ghoul. On an 18 to 19, they become a ghast. On a 20, they become a wight.
