Soul of the Empire
Symbols surrounding a body lying in front of you glow, and suddenly the body’s arm twitches. You watch as the glow flows onto the corpse, and as it does so the body also continues to stir. The last of the glow disappears into the mouth of the body, and as it does so the corpse finishes rising to its feet. It looks expectantly towards you, waiting for its first command.

Using the bones or bodies of dead creatures you create undead creatures to follow your spoken commands. The undead can follow you, or they can remain in an area. They remain animated until they are destroyed, and remain under your control indefinitely. You can not control more than three undead at any given point, and the undead you create are your level or lower, and require you to make a skill check equal to the level of the undead you wish to create to succeed on the casting.
