A lesser known aspect of the branch of magic known as Necromancy, this spell temporarily animates the corpse of a small dead animal (no larger than a rat) as an undead thing called an Exanimus. The caster has very limited control of the animated creation. It can be directed to perform very basic movements (e.g. walk forward, turn left, stop). Anything more complex requires another Charms (-3) roll. All actions must be actively controlled, like a puppeteer manipulating a puppet. The Exanimus cannot be given instructions to be followed out of the caster's sight. This spell is used primarily to teach basic reanimation techniques before ascending to more difficult Necromancy.
