Undead Control

One of the spells that can be found in the necromantic spellbook Cryptichronos is one that allows you to control an undead creature.

Undead Control
3rd-level necromancy
Casting Time: 1 action
Range: 20 yards
Components: V, S, M
Duration: 1 hour

You attempt to control a single undead creature you can see within range. It must make a Wisdom saving throw, and does so with advantage if you or your companions are fighting it. If it fails the saving throw, it is controlled by you until the spell ends or until you or your companions do anything harmful to it. The controlled creature regards you as a friendly acquaintance. When the spell ends, the creature knows it was controlled by you.

The material component is an evil priest’s unholy symbol or some other properly cursed talisman forcefully presented to the affected monsters. The component is not lost in the casting and may be subsequently reused.

At Higher Levels: You can control more powerful undead creatures.
