You infuse the dead with the power of shadow, animating their bodies to life once again.

This spell turns the bones or bodies of dead creatures into undead skeletons or zombies that follow your spoken commands.

The undead can follow you, or they can remain in an area and attack any creature (or just a specific kind of creature) entering the place. They remain animated until they are destroyed, or the power ends. (A destroyed skeleton or zombie can’t be animated again.)

Regardless of the type of undead you create with this power, you can’t create more HD of undead than twice your caster level with a single casting of animate dead.

The undead you create remain under your control until the spell ends. No matter how many times you use this power, however, you can control only 4 HD worth of undead creatures per caster level. If you exceed this number, all the newly created creatures fall under your control, and any excess undead from previous castings become uncontrolled. (You choose which creatures are released.) If you are also a cleric, any undead you might command by virtue of your power to command or rebuke undead do not count toward the limit.

When this power ends, the bodies of the undead you animated are destroyed and may not be used to animate again.
