Legacy Power: Zombies!

I've never been one for the slow, shambley type.

A 1 Gift Raise Dead Power created by shady.


The Necromancer stands over a corpse and makes a series of grandiose lifting gestures. The corpse rises from the ground as though suspended by invisible strings, barks a pained groan, and lands on its feet, now a full-fledged member of the living dead.

The monster hungers for brains and will aggressively pursue and attack anyone it sees, including the Necromancer that created it.


Choose a Dead target that has died within the last month, spend an Action and Exert your Mind to raise the dead. The resulting Animate creature is a husk of their former selves, a mindless zombie. It has no memory of its past life, and no hint of its personality remains.

The revived creature will follow any command you speak.

The creature lasts for one hour or until re-killed. It is revived at full health. Any Injuries it had in life are not accounted for when determining its penalties or progression towards re-death, though they may affect its ability to perform certain actions at GM's discretion.

The revived creature's Abilities are all set to 0, and its Charisma and Intellect, are all set to 1. Its Dexterity, Brawn and Perception are the same as it had in life. A revived creature cannot use any Powers.


  • Rigor Mortis no More (The revived creature has the same rating in Dexterity that it had in life and may move normally.)


  • Feral Dead (The raised creature has no obligation to follow your commands and is often aggressive.)
