Grasping Corpse

1st-level necromancy

Casting Time: 1 action

Range: 30 feet

Components: V, S, M (pinch of powdered onyx worth 1 gp)

Duration: Instantaneous

Classes: cleric, sorcerer, warlock, wizard

You can cause one nearby corpse to animate for a brief moment. Choose a creature within 30 feet of the corpse (even if the creature is outside the spell’s range). The corpse shambles toward the creature and then grapples it (Escape DC 12). It otherwise has the statistics of a zombie.

At Higher Levels: When you cast this spell using a spell slot of 2nd level or higher, the number of corpses you may animate doubles for each slot level above 1st.
