Guys, I have an idea!
What if...
What if you took an plate armor,and like filled and covered it with flesh and other fleshy stuff, and then reanimated it!

It would be like zombie, but it would have armor inside!
So when people try to fight them, they just think that they are rather funnily shaped zombies, but when they attempt to strike them BAM, full plate resistance under the flesh!

They could also hide swords and axes under the flesh, so when the fight starts, the weird shaped zombies are suddenly wielding deadly weapons, while being hard as fuck!

Stillborn (taken from BONES Quest)
Undead Babies (Yes,literally) with a pale grayish-blue skin. crawling towards you with rapid speed. Possess tiny, yet considerably sharp claws and can suck the life out of you (again, literally). Also make frequent use of short-ranged teleportations and can emit paralyzing screams.

Stillborns may either be the result of innocent babes falling into the hands of Necromancers or, in rarer circumstances, be literal stillborns that are unaware about the fact that they never possessed a life of their own. It is unknown whether these tiny ghosts actually want to hurt those coming to close to them, but given their magical abilites, they should be avoided at all costs.

So... I have to know to what extent something can be resurrected. If a necromancer can resurrect a skeleton and animate it, wouldn't it be just as easy to take the top layer of your skin and resurrect it?

Ballista made of skeletons, that shoots skeletons. Ideally the latter skeletons have hang gliders, but no big loss if they don't.

Or if you want to go the Evil route you can have it so that people give their corpses to the state to pay off some sort of fraudulent debt, effectively forcing the citizens into labor during life and after.

It fills the big hole in the market. The zombie servant hole. A big corporation focussed on necromantic research and zombie innovation. Our new zombies last longer and smell less!

While a neat idea, the zombie horse having to hunt people down and trap them to reach maximum effectiveness is pretty inefficient; they wouldn't be that terrible of a threat if you're well armored or in a group. At least not any more so than most other undead monstrosities. They would be most effective when a large number of them are sealthily released in urban areas -small villages and farming communities, where they can pick off farmers and travellers. The fear and turmoil they would produce w\is going to far outweigh any real damage they do.

The DEATHGUT, also known as a "Butcher's Zombie" or "Gut-strangler," is a form of mindless undead composed entirely of the sewn-together intestines of large animals and monstrous beasts. An individual Deathgut takes the form of a big, slimy, festering pile of guts. In its movement it is best compared to an ooze. When a Deathgut reaches a target it coils itself around him with surprising speed. It kills by strangulation, but even those who survive its attack may be in trouble, for a Deathgut is typically filled with all sorts of diseases and parasites that anyone who touches it may be exposed to. The Deathgut has little protection and is not difficult to slice up, but it exudes a vile stench that nauseates those who come near it and serves to discourage attack. The Deathgut is not particularly stealthy; though it creates little noise as it moves, it is typically surrounded in a swarm of buzzing flies.

Being mindless, a Deathgut is a fairly low-level form of undead, often used by aspiring necromancers for whom a butcher's offal is easier to procure than an intact human body or skeleton. They are not difficult to make, but a strong stomach is a necessity.

A couple of friends and I have been worldbuilding a specific setting for a while now. It basically boils down Cyborgs vs. Undead vs. Demonbinders.
In doing so, we've got a few unique-ish undead.
The best is probably oil golems. Since oil is basically compressed liquid organic matter, it makes sense a grand necromancer could instil it with unlife. The vessel can be any corpse, with the oil is injected into it in place of blood, or animated entirely on its own as an amorphous mass. Either way, you end up with an explosively flammable abomination which is thoroughly berzerk due to the innumerable souls of the creatures of different breeds and species that make up its composition. For best effect, fill the body of a corpse golem with undead oil and create organic vents in the golem's flesh. Then set it on fire.

What have we learned from this thread? NECROMANCY HAS NO LIMITS WHATSOEVER.

If it was ever dead, it can be resurrected under your control. If you burn a corpse you can make an ash undead and a CO2 undead. If you have a steak you can resurrect it. If you have a strain of sausages you can turn it into an undead snake. If you have an outer layer of skin a necromancer can resurrect it while it's on you.

This gives me an awesome idea for BBEGs. Can't go with over 10 liches because it would be very deadly to most parties.
9 of the liches have made the 10th their phylactery. One of the 9 gets the main lich's phylactery.

Be a great quest, party having to kill the 10 liches, knowing unless they kill the one with all the phylactery, they will keep coming back.

I've been tinkering with a plant that grows inside the skulls of corpses, sending it's vines out to move the body in order to grow larger.

The plant, when animating a body, grows sharp-shelled seeds on the fists so that they appear spiky at first. Successful hits place these seeds inside the targeted victim. If the target dies, the seed starts to grow. Otherwise it's considered a disease that can be cured normally.

Once the target dies, and the seeds sprout inside the body, it spends sometime growing, slowly replacing the nervous system at a rate of 1d4 days per hit-dice of the creature infected...assuming you're using the d20 system or some sort, otherwise adapt it to whatever. The point of entry for the seeds sprout small flowers that almost look like bright-blue tulips.

Once the process is complete the body/host/undead simply "gets up" and starts walking towards a large body of water, growing seeds on the fists/claws/whatever in about a week or so.

It attacks any passers by, hoping to spread its seeds.

besides, which one would you respawn at? A lich respawns at his soul, so you would respawn in pieces at the seperate soul shards. Unless of course, you respawn at the LARGEST piece, in which case you can start dividing in half every time you stick one in.

Once when I was a young 3.5 player and a necromancer I tried to get an undead steed. I reasoned that the horse didn't have to be strong as that would be needlessly expensive so I bought the cheapest, oldest horse in the stable. I then took it to a back-alley, and slit it's throat.

After it ran around for about a minute before dying of bloodloss I dragged the carcass back to the alley, applied the onyx gems to it's eyes, then cast the spell. Since I had neglected to remove the flesh and was summoning a skeleton horse all of the flesh and organs were blown off and my character was knocked prone and covered in gibbs.

Animated golem/construct of old splintered bones?

Looks like a white gravel path, until your feet suddenly sink in and get stuck. Then the entire mass starts to surround you, every splintery chunk spinning, shifting and boring into your flesh.

If you are unable to escape the pieces just press closer. First armor, then flesh is mangled and squeezed out of the constricting shifting mass. Tangled scraps of meat and shiny things to feed the crows in the trees above?

When your bones are finally broken down the whole mass starts to slump and spread out again, covering just a little more ground this time.
