The resulting undead creature will have a form dependent on the original creature’s fame and body and the caster’s necromancy and spirit speak skill:

For the table below, Value is equal to ((caster's Necromancy skill * .3) + (caster's Spirit Speak skill * .3)) * 180. If the resulting Value is higher than the target corpse's Fame, Value is instead equal to the target corpse's Fame.

Default Arachnid Draconic Elemental Equinae

The undead creature cannot be commanded, but will tend to follow you and attack anything except humans. You can have at most 3 undead summons at one time; creating another will result in the destruction of one of your existing creatures. Also, the animated dead slowly decay in hit points with time. Animated dead do not use follower slots.
