Idol of Undead Creation

Wondrous item, legendary (requires attunement by a cleric of Orcus)

Once you have attuned to the idol, any undead you create while within 150 ft. of it have advantage on saving throws to resist being turned. In addition, any skeleton or zombie you create while within 150 ft. of it receives double its normal hit dice and a maximum number of hit points per hit die, and a +2 bonus to AC, damage rolls, and saving throws. The undead retain these abilities as long as they are within 150 ft. of the idol.

Undead created under the influence of the idol will pursue it to the best of their ability if the idol is moved away from them.

Anyone other than a cleric of Orcus who touches the idol must succeed at a DC 16 Wisdom saving throw or lose 1d6 points of Strength until after their next long rest; protection from evil and good reduces the DC by 2.

Dispel magic successfully cast by a good cleric against a 6th level spell effect cancels the idol’s power for 24 hours.
