View Full Version : Question about preventing undead spawn

2010-06-27, 10:21 AM
Hello all,

3.5 edition question here.

For some undead spawn (vampire, ghoul, etc) it makes sense that one could prevent the slain from coming back as undead by destroying the corpse. But what about incorporeal undead?

I thought there was some generic method to prevent undead from spawning (such as casting protection from evil on the body, or dousing it with holy water) but I may be remembering something from 2nd edition. Is there some general procedure (that's readily available to PCs) to block undead from spawning in 3.5?

There's a spell somewhere-I don't remember the name-but it prevents a creature from being turned into an undead. I think it's from the SpC.

Ah, you're right, there is a spell there to prevent undead from spawning (spawn screen, 2nd level cleric/wiz spell).

Unfortunately, you have to cast it before the person is slain by the undead.
