I am the GM. My players may witness a scene in which a skeletal champion is created, but what must the NPC wizard do to actually create such an intelligent adversary for the melee types?
This thread led me to this link on my mobile device. I don't have Undead Revisited, but from what I read on the forums, it contains the canonical answer from Paizo, and Revisited agrees with d20pfsrd. Do I have that right?
