Empty vessels are mere puppets to those versed in the necromantic arts. The Necromancer draws for a silver knife, slicing through the strings of essence that connect an undead to its's controller and grabbing hold them.

This spell allows a necromancer to wrest control of up to (caster's essence in magnitude) mindless undead, non-sentient necrotech constructs, or hungry ghosts within Long Range, binding them to the Necromancer’s will.  Targets will respond to verbal orders, fulfilling them to the best of their ability.

Taking control of a group of undead requires a roll of (attribute + occult) at (magnitude + coil rank) difficulty. If the target is under control of another master, the Necromancer must make an opposed control roll against the current controller, each adding (essence) as successes, with the current controller’s result adding to the standard difficulty.
