View Full Version : Summon Undead

2007-10-14, 02:18 PM
I recently made a Necromancer character and I was looking at the Summon Undead spells, specificly Summon undead 3, which is the highest I can cast.

I can summon, a Ghoul, a Large zombie, or a Huge Skeleton.

The huge skeleton sounded nice, so I had a look in my Monster Manual..

wait a minute.. that cant be right? a 3rd level spell that summons a 17HD Cloud giant? Surley it means somthing else right? but there was nothing, then started thinking about the Large zombie, it could be anything.

does it mean a Zombie horse? a Zombie Ogre? a Zombie grey render? These are all large creature and All very very different.

and the First level spell one.. a Medium skeleton? A medium -what- skeleton? a Medium human skeleton? a Medium wolf skeleton? a Medium Deva Skeleton?

Am I missing somthing here?

Which version of the Summon Undead spells do you use ?

In the Spell Compendium, the list for Summon Undead III consists of a Ghoul, a Troll Skeleton and an Ogre Zombie.

Aaah, the version of Summon Undead you're looking at must be 3.0.

He's actually looking at Libris Mortis. Spell Compendium is one of the most important books in a long time just because it closes this loophole. (You should NOT be able to summon Marilith skeles at level THREE.)
