    Default Re: The Four Laws of Undead Physiology

    Main question is
    what type of undead need to be supported by these laws?

    leaning toward classic D&D undead just as a model.
    because if you have shadows, wraiths, etc they need a way to be separated from "normal" ghosts
    do you have sentient vs non-sentient undead and how would that work? for corporeal and noncorporeal undead.
    How about spawn type undead? how would that work...why
    why do some undead drain stats or levels and others don't?

    now this may also not be for a D&D setting for sure but the same kind of questions would need to be asked in order to understand the type and variety of undead in the setting. To some extent you need to take your monster manual/story needs and work backwards.
