Summons multiple undead monsters, creating various ghosts, vampires, wraiths and other lesser undead.

Summon Undead is a monsters-only spell which summons several undead monsters around the caster. Although most of the summoned undead are weak and easily defeated, high-HD casters can summon multiple undead with each casting, and the player may be swarmed.
