Raise Zombie
Duration: 10 minutes or until slain.
Description: When cast only upon a felled foe (i.e. a body is Wounded or in their Death Count), the corpse rises as a mindless zombie and obeys simple and direct commands from the caster. All zombies have 20 body, are proficient with any weapon or shield, swing for base weapon damage plus a Strength bonus of +1, and can “Sense Life” at will unless otherwise specified by the caster. Zombies can only follow commands that are 5 words or less, and to the letter.


It was my understanding that zombies can be raised from Finalled corpses as well as those who are wounded or in their death count. Is that not the case?

If you can cast Raise Zombie on a Finalled corpse, does the body's condition matter as to whether or not it can be the target of Raise Zombie? For instance, can one cast Raise Zombie on an ordinary skeleton (e.g. one that's not already a different kind of undead), or does it have to have a certain amount of flesh left on it to be a valid target?

While there's nothing strictly preventing you from using the spell on a finalled body, under most circumstances you cannot do so because a finalled body almost never has a someone repping it. There's no limit on the condition of decay the body is in - raise zombie can result in a skeletal zombie - but outside of rare occasions where someone is repping a finalled corpse, they are not valid targets for the spell.

Fair enough. I suppose one could always request that a body be repped, with the understanding that Plot/NPCs might not always be available for such a scene to happen, given that the majority of zombies that are sent out are created out of Finalled corpses.
