Components:   V, S, M   Casting Time:   1 hour  
Range:   Close (25 ft. + 5 ft./2 levels)   Target:   One corpse  
Effect:      Area:     
Duration:   Instantaneous   Saving Throw:   None  
Spell Resistance:   No   XP Cost:     
Focus:      Material Components:   A clay pot filled with grave dirt and another filled with brackish water. The spell must be cast on a dead body. You must place a black onyx gem worth at least 50 gp per HD of the undead to be created into the mouth or eye socket of each corpse. The magic of the spell turns these gems into worthless shells.  

A much more potent spell than animate dead, this evil spell allows the character to create more powerful sorts of undead: ghasts, ghouls, shadow, wights, and wraiths. The following types of undead can be created by casters of the specified levels:

Cleric Level 	Undead Created
------------ 	--------------
11 or lower 	Ghoul
12–13 		Shadow
14–15 		Ghast
16–19 		Wight
20 		Wraith

The character may create less powerful undead than the character's level would indicate if the character choses. For example, at 16th level the character could decide to create a ghoul or shadow instead of a wight. Doing this may be a good idea, because created undead are not automatically under the control of their animator. The character may attempt to command the undead as it forms.

This spell must be cast at night.
