Skigeles of Jerbiton decided to be a healer, but found his true talents lay more in physical necromancy. After running into problems with angry soldiers and townsfolk, he decided to design this spell to give himself a way to escape and run away and use for shock value. Due to his Enduring Magic, he was confident that a Diameter duration would be sufficient.
The Wall of Flesh and Bone (Creo Corpus 35)
R: Touch, D: Diameter, T: Group
This spell conjures an organized wall of human corpses, each body stacked like brickwork atop of the others and their limbs entwined and stiffened with rigor mortis to add shape. This wall of conjured corpses fills space up to two paces wide and twenty paces long, and is as high as a man can reach. It also could be used to make a ramp leading up to a higher point, but the footing is rather infirm and grim. Due to his sigil, when Skigeles casts this spell, all the conjured bodies are clean and preserved.
(Base 5, +1 Touch, +1 Diameter, +2 group, +1 magnitude for group size, +1 magnitude for the complex body arrangement)
Side Effects table (1d10)
1 Exaggerated Sigil: Due to his sigil, the every single corpse in the wall is shockingly clean, almost glistening to a pale bony polish and any hair trimmed and styled and coiffed.
2-3 Minor Flaw: The rigor mortis wears off relatively quickly, and by the time the spell ends, it has collapsed into a series of piles.
4-5 Minor Side Effect: Any nearby scavengers will be attracted towards the corpse piles.
6 Minor Benefit: The bodies will let out a sound similar to a low wailing moan if they are attacked or disturbed, as air trapped in the lungs escapes.
7 Major Flaw: The wall of corpses is really more of a pile, and tends to end up as a geometric cone. More like a Pyramid of Flesh and Bone. Grisly.
8 Major Side Effect: Every single one of the corpses is an exact copy of the caster's naked, recently dead flesh. Every. Single. One.
9 Major Benefit:
10 Fatal Flaw: The summoned corpses are in terrible condition, and rapidly decay into a pile of bones and rotting flesh, the structural integrety of the wall collapsing in a matter of seconds and decaying more every moment. This can still create quite a mess, and dangerous terrain for people moving through it quickly.
