Default Special Raise Dead

Hey ppl,

I'd like some help here, I'm working on a custom spell, the idea is very similar to Zombie, but it should raise the dead with all of it's previous abilities including spellcasting and psionics, but while in control of the caster.

Much like The Lich King from Warcraft raised Anub'arak and other folks like Mograine and the Death Knights...

The idea, is to work something like "Enslave" with adding a undead template.
Any suggestions?

Personally? I would still use Zombie, but up the energy cost. Check improved zombies on Pyramid 3.1 to a less extreme example. Of course, another option could be to make a new spell, with Zombie among it's prerequeqs.

If the raised creature does not loose any of their skills, I would make the cost the same as ressurection though

Or MORE than resurrection. Resurrection raises the person, but does not give you control over them.

control comes from Enslave, a 30 point cost spell, that is basically small change next to resurrection.

Rethinking it, I would add at least Zombie, Enslave, and Resurrection to the prerequisite list, and make the cost 300+

Both less and more. While the raised subject does "come back", as with a resurrection, the raised subject is saddled with a new Undead template that, in many ways, reduces his functioning.

Does GURPS have no category of undead in between zombies and liches?

I've got Wights in Sagatafl, as a sort of corporeal undead lieutenants, for necromancers, same way Wraiths are incorporeal undead lieutenants, and also greater ("lord") versions of both.

I gues I'll do that so, 300 for the ressurection, 30 for the Enslave and 8 for the zombie...
I'll round up to 350ER to cast...
Where the caster will get a "fully functional" lieutenant...
