Animate Undead Minion

1st-level necromancy

Casting Time: 1 minute

Range: 10 feet

Components: V, S, M (part of a dead humanoid)

Duration: Concentration, up to 1 hour

This spell creates a temporary undead minion. Choose a pile of bones or a corpse of a Medium or Small humanoid within range. The spell makes the bones into an undead skeleton or the corpse into a zombie (the DM has the creature’s statistics). You can use a bonus action to mentally command a creature you animated with this spell if the creature is within 30 feet of you. The creature follows your command until the task is complete. If it has no command, the target acts only to defend itself.

At Higher Levels. When you cast this spell using a spell slot of 2nd level or higher, you animate or one additional undead for each slot level above 1st. Each creature must come from a different corpse or pile of bones. Whenever you take a bonus action to command your minions, you can give the same command to multiple creatures you animated with this spell.
