[New Spell] Reclaiming the Dead

Reclaiming the Dead

As night fell wicked creatures crawled forth from their lairs to roam the land around the Drear Forest. It was no place for a band of adventurers.

Shall we make camp here?” suggested the elven magic-user, Sovir.

Looks good to me,” replied the dwarf fighter, Ironkeg.

It is very near the woods, which look quite dark and dangerous,” Firemead the halfling said shakily.

Bah, little one! You worry too much,” snorted the human cleric, Vindri.

A couple of hours later, as the foul undead were creeping in, Firemead glanced over at the cleric.

You have already repelled those returned from the grave at Dilba Crossing, what are you going to do now?” the halfling asked.

Sovir threw a ball of light amongst the creeping dead, revealing them to be a band of hungry ghouls.

Vindri looked at the halfling and winked. Then he shouted to his gods. A strange quiet fell,, broken by the hissing of one of the ghouls that turned into a cry of terror.

Questing and probing hands, made of earth and rock were grabbing and clutching the wicked ghouls, pulling them underground.

Sometimes, just sometimes, you humans aren’t so bad,” Firemead said, nodding in respect at the priest’s magic.

Vindri laughed and patted the halfing on the head.

Yes, little thief, and I am sure we will find a use for you one day too,” the cleric replied, laughing.

Reclaiming the Dead (Cleric)

Level 2

Range: 50 feet per level of cleric

Duration: Permanent unless the undead dig there way out or are dug out

This cleric spell will claim the bodies of those undead who walk the land in a physical form (skeletons, ghouls, zombies, etc), dragging them back underground where they are trapped unless able to dig themselves out or someone comes by to release them from their second graves. A cleric may affect up to 4HD of undead per level with this spell. When cast earthy hands reach for whatever type of undead creature is nearby and pull it down, about six feet, underground and the creature is released, but trapped with earth compacted all around them.

    That’s a goody. Great imagery, but also very useful.

  2. David says:

    Would this spell work in an area of worked stone? Say in a dungeon or basement?

  3. Blair says:

    I wish these jokers got eaten by the ghouls…Koram & Chalk forever!

    Thank you, John, I hope the spell works well for you!
    David, that is up to you, I would say yes and give the undead less of a chance to escape the clutches of stone hands over earthy ones.
    Blair, oh, I hear you, but I needed a new crop of expendables, like the halflings last year that were eaten by the carnivorous swans. Don’t worry, these clowns will bite it.

    “like the halflings last year that were eaten by the carnivours swans.”

    Dang, I’ve got to comb through your archives again!
