The prophet can call on any undead creatures within range. The prophet can be as specific or as general as desired when summoning the creatures, but must specify the total level of the creatures desired and is limited to creatures within range. If there are no matching creatures within range, the spirit does not manifest.

The total level of the undead that respond can be no more than the level of manifestation. None of the creatures’ moral codes can conflict with the prophet’s. A Chaotic Evil prophet could press Chaotic, Evil, and Chaotic Evil undead into service, but not Ordered Evil or Ordered creatures.

The undead must be given a single action to perform. The action must be describable in level times two words, but it doesn’t have to be spoken in a language that the creature understands.

The focus is two or more identical bone torcs carved with symbols of the prophet’s religion. The prophet wears one, and each creature wears one as well. If the undead fail their willpower roll, they willingly accept the torc from the prophet, and will resist having it removed for the duration of the manifestation. If either torc is destroyed, the charm is ended for that creature. Torcs are reusable, but each torc is specific to one type of undead.

Once the task is completed or the manifestation ends, the target is free to act as they wish (the first thing they’ll likely do is remove the torc). Intelligent undead will probably be unfriendly to the prophet, though they will not unduly endanger themselves. Unintelligent or low intelligence undead will continue with whatever they were doing before pressed into service.
