Conjure Lesser Undead

4th-level necromancy (ritual)

Casting Time: 1 action
Range: 40 feet
Components: V, S
Duration: Concentration, up to 1 hour

You summon a lesser form of undead to appear in an unoccupied space within range. These undead come from the host of dead that lie beneath the soil in nearly any place in the world. Choose one of the following options:

  • One undead of challenge rating 2 or lower
  • 2 undead of challenge rating 1 or lower
  • 4 undead of challenge rating 1/2 or lower
  • 8 undead of challenge rating of 1/4 or lower

The undead remain until the duration of the spell ends, and any undead summoned disappears when reduced to 0 hit points.

The summoned undead are friendly to you and your allies. Roll initiative for the undead as a group, though each has its own turns. They obey any verbal commands you issue them. If you do not issue them any commands, they defend themselves from hostile creatures, but take no other actions.

At higher levels. When you cast this spell using a higher level spell slot, you choose one of the summoning options above, but more creatures appear; three times as many with a 7th level slot, and four times as many with a 9th level slot.
