As create undead, except that this spell allows the character to create more powerful and intelligent sorts of undead. The type of undead created is based on the character's level. The following types of undead can be created by casters of the specified levels:

Cleric Level 	Undead Created
------------ 	--------------
15 or lower 	Mummy
16–17 		Spectre
18–19 		Vampire
20 		Ghost*

*Ghosts created by this spell have three ghostly powers in addition to manifestation: malevolence, horrific appearance, and corrupting gaze.

The character may attempt to command the undead as it forms with a turning check.

Certain types of undead, such as liches, cannot be created by this spell. Such undead are created in other, very specific ways.
