World's Edge — Dungeon Craft: Undead

Undead are in general either created by nefarious magic-users or dark clerics, or else free-willed creatures who can create more of their own kind. Most undead are vulnerable to the turning powers of good clerics, however, as shown in the table below. (Evil clerics can control undead instead of turning them, and they can also turn paladins as well.)

Servitor Undead

The lowliest of undead are bound to the wills of their creators. Mostly mindless, only the juju zombies have a burning, evil sentience. Although the creation of undead is a generally evil act, the non-sentient undead are not actually evil of their own accord.
