There are two kinds of undead in Mind Weave: animated undead and called undead. They are named according to the means by which Necromancers take them under their control.
While called undead come into existence independently but can be dominated by a necromancer to put them under his control, animated undead must be created by a necromancer from corpses.
Animate Dead is the means by which a Necromancer creates animated undead by infusing them with a portion of his magical capacity. At higher levels the cost of capacity to animate dead is reduced, the maximum number of undead that can be animated increases, and the maximum level of undead that can be animated increases.
The form an undead takes depends on its class prior to death:
- Dead Lord-Necromancer
- Death Knight-Paladin
- Reaper(Dread Wight)-Priest
- Root Walker-Druid
- Shadow Walker-Assassin
- Void Walker-Battle Mage
- Zombie-No Class
