I was working on a True Necromancer (Libris mortis pag. 53) and I wanted to see how many undeads it can control. Assume the Necromancer is level 11, he comes from a cleric/3, wizard/3, true necromancer/5 progression.
When casting Animate dead spell he can
control only 4 HD worth of undead creatures per caster level.
and his caster level for both cleric and wizard is 8 (7 + 1 from the necromantic prowess ability of the true necromancer, since Animate dead is a necromancy spell).
Does this mean that he can control 4*8 + 4*8 = 64 HD of undeads if he casts Animate dead both with the cleric and the wizard spell slots?
It looks like a lot to me, and I'm not even counting the ones he could control with the rebuking of undeads, which, apparently (text of animate dead)
If you are a cleric, any undead you might command by virtue of your power to command or rebuke undead do not count toward the limit
I'd be glad if someone could correct my possible oversights (or prove me right *mad, evil laughter *)!
