Tome of Vile Death

Wondrous item, rare

Note: This item is part of the Belongings of the Sanguis Lord magic item set.

This tome has 5 charges. While you hold it, you can use an action to expend 1 or more of its charges to cast the animate dead spell from it. For 1 charge, you cast the 3rd-level version of the spell. You can increase the spell slot level by one for each additional charge you expend. An undead creature you animate or reassert control over with the animate dead spell cast from this tome gains 10 temporary hit points.

The tome regains ld4 + 1 expended charges daily at dusk.

If you expend the tome’s last charge, roll a d20. On a 1, the tome crumbles into ashes and is destroyed.
