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

Summon Undead is a monster-only spell which summons multiple undead monsters around the caster. While many are weak, flayed ghosts are threatening even to endgame characters, all types of wraith can slow you, and phantasmal warriors can cut your willpower.

Creatures summoned equals 1 + 1d(HD/5 + 1). It can create these monsters, with equal probability for each:[1]
