Both templates explicitly change the resulting creature's type to Undead, and both state the resulting creature "uses all the base creature's statistics and special abilities except as noted here". Regarding saving throws, the ghost template is silent; but, the skeleton template specifically notes:
Saves: Base save bonuses are Fort +1/3 HD, Ref +1/3 HD, and Will +1/2 HD + 2.
These are the exact same saves as are the default for the Undead type. Is the inclusion of this line a redundancy in the rules, or does the absence of that line in the ghost template mean the base saving throws from the base creature are retained?
Using an Adult Silver Dragon as a base creature, the resulting skeleton unambiguously has Fort +7, Ref +6, Will +10; however, the resulting ghost might have either Fort +12, Ref +7, Will +17 if recalculated as the Undead type base saves or Fort +17, Ref +12, Will +17 if recalculated with Dragon type base saves.
Which is it, and why?
