Description

This spell blesses a corpse with positive energy, preventing it from being turned into an undead creature. Attempts to raise the corpse as an undead automatically fail. If the corpse is of a person slain by a creature that creates undead out of its slain foes (such as a shadow, mohrg, or wraith), that effect is delayed until the end of this spell. It is possible to protect a corpse for an extended time by casting this spell repeatedly as it expires.
