6th-level necromancy

Casting Time: 1 minute

Range: 60 feet

Components: V

Duration: Instantaneous

Classes: Bard, Wizard

This spell creates an undead servant from up to six Medium or Small humanoid corpses within range. The target becomes a zombie that can speak. You can the zombie up to five questions. The zombie knows only what it knew in life, including the languages it knew. Answers are usually brief but truthful.

On each of your turns, you can use a bonus action to mentally command any zombie you made with this spell if the zombie is within 60 feet of you (if you control multiple zombies, you can command any or all of them at the same time, issuing the same command to each one). You decide what action the zombie will take and where it will move during its next turn, or you can issue a general command, such as to guard a particular chamber or corridor. If you issue no commands, the zombie only defends itself against hostile zombies. Once given an order, the zombie continues to follow it until its task is complete. The zombie is under your control for 24 hours, after which it stops obeying any command you’ve given it.
