|Summary||0002650: Animating skeleton from ugly thing corpse fails|
You see here an ugly thing corpse.
You attempt to give life to the dead...
Before your eyes, flesh is ripped from the corpse!
Things that are here:
2 chunks of ugly thing flesh; an ugly thing skeleton
Reproduced with very ugly thing and shapeshifter corpses. General issue with mutagenic corpses?
|Tags||No tags attached.|
|No, the issue is just with monsters that have corpses but can't be turned into zombies or skeletons - I believe this is just (very) ugly things at the moment, due to a quirk of their implementation (I can't reproduce this issue with shapeshifter corpses).|
|The issue is that ugly things can't be zombified. Animate Skeleton could do nothing for such corpses, but, as it is, the current behavior of reliably producing a skeleton could be useful for casters of Bone Shards.|
|Doesn't Corpse Rot also reliably produce skeletons from appropriate corpses?|
It can't be reproduced with shapeshifter corpses because shapeshifters don't have skeletons. Hell hound corpses are another working example.
Once the miasma cloud disappears, yes.
Does not reproduce with shapeshifters, right.
Could not figure why it did not animate ugly thing skeleton though - it's left on the ground.
|Monsters that can't be zombified can't have their corpses or their skeletons animated.|
It's not clear from spell description and actually raises next question: what monsters can be zombified?
This spell raises an inert skeleton to a state of unlife, even if that skeleton
is still encased in flesh! Note that skeletons are incapable of leaving the
level they were created on.
Perhaps a line could be added to the description of unraiseable monsters (or their corpses). "This corpse is unsuitable for reanimation", or "This body lacks a skeleton", or something to that effect.
Ideally, such a line would only appear in the description if you had some means of raising the dead...
|Ugly thing corpses/skeletons can now be animated.|
