Casting time: 1 bonus action
Range: Self
Components: V, S, M (a musical instrument)
Duration: Concentration, up to 1 minute


You begin to play an eerie tune. As an action, you can cause one corpse or skeleton within 60 feet of you to lash out at a creature within 5 feet of it (using your spell attack modifier), dealing 1d4 bludgeoning damage and 1d4 necrotic damage on a hit.

At 5th level, you can expend a 1st level spell slot as an action to cause a corpse or skeleton within 60 feet of you to rise as a zombie (or skeleton, respectively) for a number of rounds equal to your spellcasting ability modifier multiplied by 2. The zombie or skeleton is under your control and obeys your mental commands to the best of its ability. You can't control more than 3 zombies or skeletons at one time using this ability.
