Any practitioner of the darker arts knows that creating aid in the form of undead servants is no simple feat. First you must extract a corpse, then wrap magical enchantments about it, causing it not only to become animated, but also to remain subservient to YOU and not someone else, which means ideally, a segment of your own life force should be placed in the spell.
The founder of Melkesjokolyde was, in fact, a necromancer name Melkesdyle. After oh-so-many years of watching his minions bieng destroyed by foolhardy adventurers, out to seek a name for themselves, he grew tired of seeing his sacrifice of life going to such waste. And so he studied, and eventually divised a way which he can conserve the effort, and even make it MORE useful! At the death of an undead creature, the enchantments used to animate its corpse and dictate its master are usually dispersed to the world, but Meklesdyle found that, by casting the proper calling enchantment within a few minutes of the creatures death, he could bring back that energy, as an almost ectoplasmic goo. This goo could be mixed with water, and when sprinkled on a corpse, or even decomposed skeleton, the spell will take hold once more, bringing that skeleton back. Eventually, Melkesdyle found that he could negate the ‘master’ section of the potion, meaning any fledgling necromancer could cast a simple control spell into the potion, meaning any creature ressurected by that potion would belong to whoever cast the master spell on the potion.
Melkesdyle changed his profession from terrorising small towns, to selling these potions to necromancers too weak to create undead from scratch.
The potion known as Melkesjokolyde can be bought in many ‘underground’ stores or blackmarkets. A necromancer who has one of these potions is able to cast an enslaving/controlling spell onto the milky substance, causing it to turn a brown, milky texture. If this potion is sprinkled on a single corpse, it will raise that corpse for the duration of one day. The potion will sink into the ground if sprinkled on the ground, and will attatch onto any corpse that might be down there, be it animal or human. The potion can be used on multiple corpses, too. A single potion can bring up 10 corpses for 1 hour, or 30 for 10 minutes.
This potion can, for example, be thrown over a patch of land where there once was a great battle. This will basically give an instant small army for a few minutes - long enough to slay whatever is troubling you :)
Drinking the potion is extremely poisonous, and you WILL die if you do so, and be turned into an undead zombie for the duration of one day, wherein you will still have control over your body since the controlling spell was yours.
The potion has a taste remeniscent of chocolate milk :)
