Description: Animate Dead summons forth an undead minion. The type of undead summoned is dependent upon the caster level:
Levels 1 to 5: Tyrantfog zombie
Levels 6 to 9: Skeletal warrior
Level 10 or more: Skeletal Chieftain

The creatures created by the Animate Dead spell scale up in power as the caster gains levels and necromancy foci, beyond the normal scaling of creature type by level, varying slightly in power from casting to casting.

At level 40 and beyond, the Animate Dead spell creates a variety of powerful undead. The power of the creatures depends on caster level, spell level (3-5), necromancy foci, and random chance. More powerful creatures are created as these factors increase, and they continue to scale in response to those factors.
