Type/Color: III/Gold
Target: One Character, Hired Leader or Controlled Monster
Duration: Day

Type V Spells

Animate Zombie

 Spell: Animate Zombie

Type/Color: V/Black
Target: One Character, Monster or Native killed earlier in the same Day

Medium VUL: Medium Armored; Att: M4; Move: 4
Heavy VUL: Heavy Armored; Att: H5; Move: 5

A Zombie never flips in combat. The Zombie is a Controlled Monster that is destroyed when the spell expires. If the zombie is killed in combat it is destroyed. Also, it does not yield any Fame or Notoriety bounty but does count as a kill for determining multipliers. A destroyed zombie cannot be targeted by this spell.
