Unintelligent Undead

Unintelligent Undead use Warrior points costs for the race they are created from e.g. a Skeleton created from a Human Scout would use Human Warrior points costs. Points can also be spent on the special Undead skills.

When raising a creature as a Skeleton or Zombie, certain skills are retained, all other skills are lost. These skills still count towards the points cost for the Undead, and hence its rank will be higher. This in turn means that a higher rank Animate Dead will be required.

Example: A Necromancer kills a Troll and then decides to animate it as a Skeleton. A basic Troll has an additional 45 Life Points and Strength & Double Strength above a base Skeleton. As Trolls use the Large Humanoid table, the created Skeleton will also use this table, using the Warrior points costs. Strength & Double Strength on this table costs 6 + 12 points and the extra Life costs 45 points, making 63 in all. A basic Skeleton has a minimum rank of 2. Thus the minimum rank that the Skeleton can be is 8.3 which in turn requires an Animate Undead 16.

Example: A Necromancer kills a Troll and then decides to animate it as a Zombie. A basic Troll has an additional 15 Life Points and Double Strength above a base Zombie. As Trolls use the Large Humanoid table, the created Zombie will also use this table, using the Warrior points costs. Double Strength on this table costs 12 points and the extra Life costs 8 points, making 20 in all. A basic Zombie has a minimum rank of 2. Thus the minimum rank that the Zombie can be is 4.0 which in turn requires an Animate Undead 4.

Zombies can learn Enhance Life at half cost. If the base cost for Enhance Life is 1, then the Zombie gains 2 Life Points for each time the skill is learnt. Note that Zombies and do not have a Life Point Threshold and the cost for Life never increases.

Zombies cannot learn Religious or Magical skills, but do learn all Strength skills at half cost.
