Zeitgeist

8th-level necromancy

Casting Time: 1 hour

Range: Touch

Components: V, S, M* (a piece of paper or parchment with the creature’s name written on it, which the spell consumes.)

Duration: Until dispelled or ended

You spend 10 minutes attempting to call into the history of the location you are in to call forth the spirit of a creature that can that has died in this location. That creature must have been able to be a type of creature that can speak a language or use telepathy. That creature becomes a harmless undead spirit by your side in the same form it was last alive, recalling all of its memories, and is aware of their death.

That undead spirit is now under your control.

They must obey your commands, and every time you ask it a question, it must answer honestly and to the best of their ability. They are aware that they are under your control, but they can still speak disparagingly to you and you cannot control how this creature thinks. They are indestructible and cannot interact with or harm any living creature or object, even on the Ethereal plane.

This undead spirit lasts until you dismiss it as an action or cast this spell again, or until that creature is resurrected.
