Crude Tattoo, Opaline Soul

Aura faint necromancy; CL 3rd; Slot –; Price 1,215 gp; Weight


Depictions of bones and skulls adorn this tattoo, situated on a swirling black background.


Once per day as a full-round action, the bearer of an opaline soul crude tattoo may pull it from their skin and adorn a corpse of up to 3 HD with it. The tattoo expands, covering the corpse and sinking into its decaying flesh, and one round later the creature rises as a zombie under the tattoo bearer’s direct control. This can affect multiple bodies within 10 feet, as long as the 3 HD limit is not exceeded. Zombies generated through the opaline soul crude tattoo gain vulnerabilities to fire and acid and last for up to one hour. At the end of this time period the zombie breaks apart and is destroyed, and the opaline soul crude tattoo reappears on the bearer’s skin.
