Summary 0009314: [PATCH] Don't let allies cast animate dead while worshiping Beogh.
Description There is a strange anti-synergy that begins to develop when orc wizards grow
up into orc sorcerors. They begin to animate corpses (almost) indiscriminately
and you end up with a massive army of zombies. This is problematic when Beogh
is already the god of *orcish* armies. Zombies frequently get in the way of the
pathing and LOF of your "congregation," forcing you to do tedious juggling just
to do something trivial, like change floors with your current orc pack.

Finally, if anyone wanted to do anything with Beogh resurrection this would be
a prerequisite.

*NOTE* somewhat related to patch: Beogh's description contains the language "strongly dislikes it when you...desecrate orcish remains." Why does this not include necromancy? Beogh is fine with you animating orcs.

If this ends up accepted, go ahead and remove the comment, since Beogh doesn't actually care about that (meant to amend it out). Unless that is a bug. The purpose of the change is to remove obnoxious gameplay rather than preserve flavour anyway.

Added, with a more correct comment.
