Notes Edit

  • This creature has creature weapons that inflict 1d8+4 piercing-slashing damage, but these are never used as this creature cannot be disarmed.
  • The skeleton chieftain summoned by the animate dead spell (and feat) and transmogrifying wand item property differs from the standard creature in that it wields a +2 greatsword (instead of a +1), hence its attack bonus and damage are increased by 1 and it can pierce a higher degree of damage reduction. The ResRef of this summoned creature is nw_s_skelchief.
