1. INTRODUCTION

I remade the undeads in Morrowind, taking inspiration from the old classic Dungeons & Dragons undeads.

This mod requires Tribunal and Bloodmoon

These are the undead you'll find, from the weakest to the most powerful

NOTE:
- most of the undead now have "0" soul. In my opinion, most of them are simply animated by magic and shouldn't have a soul.
- some lesser creatures, may have a normal version, a dead version, and an UNDEAD version. The first one, means the
creature has "0" health and it is death. The second one, means the creature lies on the ground looking as dead, but it is not. If the pc goes close to it, touch it, or attacks it, the creature rises and attacks him.

=============================
SKELETONS
=============================
Decayed Skeletons
There are only 2 or 3 of these Undeads in Morrowind. I have found a beautiful new mesh of them in the mod "Undeads" by Neoptolemus. I liked so much this mesh, that I want this creature is much more common to find. It is equipped only with the weakest weapons (chitin).
It comes with normal, dead and undead version.

Skeleton
more or less, the same in the original game. It has a normal and an undead version.

Skeleton Warrior
The skeleton warriors have been replaced by Npcs that use skeletal body parts, I made my own skeleton model, using original Skeleton model of Morrowinrd. All the mods that provide skeletal body parts, don't have the wrist and the ankle part, so when they carry some armor or clothes, you see the wrist and ankle part disappear. I made also these missing parts, so they now look complete. They are equipped with some from all the rusty armor/weapons I have found in the game.
They have also an undead version.

Skeleton Champion
It is a Npc with skeletal meshes for his body. Always equipped with a magical weapon, and a barely full armor.

Skeleton Hero
It is a Npc with skeletal meshes for his body. Always equipped with a magical weapon, and a full imperial armor.

=============================
REVENANTS
=============================
Zombie
In my opinion, the Corprus Stalker IS a zombie. And I am sure everyone of us, the first time met one of them, thought "a zombie!" Some mods use the same mesh as zombie, and also Corprus stalker. But I don't like 2 different creatures look identical. So, all the corprus stalkers in the game have a new model ( an Ash Slave, retextured by me).
They carry infections. Each of them, has a human flesh ingredient.
They have also a dead and an undead version.
They are "revenants": every time they are killed, there is a 50% they resurrect (weaker) if you touch them or next time you come next to them. So, they may be killed several times, before the definitive death.

Ghouls
They replace the Bonewalker. They use a model from the mod Undeads, by Neoptolemus. They can paralyze. They carry infections.
They are "revenants": every time they are killed, there is a 50% they resurrect (weaker) if you touch them or next time you come next to them. So, they may be killed several times, before the definitive death.

Draugr
They carry infections.
They are "revenants": every time they are killed, there is a 50% they resurrect (weaker) if you touch them or next time you come next to them. So, they may be killed several times, before the definitive death.

=============================
MUMMIES
=============================
The mummies stand up and fight when you approach them. The mummies will not respawn, once defeated.

=============================
SPIRITS
=============================

Ancestor Ghost
In Morrowind they are the weakest Undeads. Now they are stronger, and in the leveled lists appear later. Their "Ghost Touch" damages Intelligence (5 - 15), Willpower ( 5 - 15) and health (5 - 15). The spells that summon an ancestral ghost, now are more difficult to cast, because the creature is more powerful.
Some of them, are invisible, and appear once approached.

Ghost
They look semi-transparent Dunmer, with skeletal hands. Usually, they carry a candle and their purpose is to dissuade the adventurers to go further in the tomb. If you make them an offer for the Ancestors, they may also help you.

Banshee
It is the lost spirit of a female evil Dunmer. They look semi-tranparent with skeletal hands. Their skeletal claws, damage Health (5-15) and Endurance (1-10). The Banshee's most powerful attack is their scream. Usually they cast it when an intruder enters a tomb, to dissuade him. The scream is terrible and can paralyze who hears it, and damage his health (50).The Banshee can also be found on the ground, crying for her lost life, but it is still dangerous.

Spectre
It is a spirit that has not left yet its body, and sometimes, if you disturb it, he may arise and punish who disturbed his dead body.

Poltergeist
They are completely invisible. They animate the weapons they find on the ground and attack the intruders, while emitting scarying sounds.

=============================
NECROMANCERS
=============================

Necromancer
They may be found in tombs, using the bodies found there for their experiments. They may summon skeletons and lesser bonewalker, and have also other powers. They have ingredients, evil books, potions etc..

Old Necromancer
They can summon Greater Bonewalkers and Ancestral Ghosts, and have also other powers.
They have ingredients, evil books, potions etc...

=============================
BONELORDS
=============================
They are more powerful now. They can cast the "Grave's Curse", like the ancestral ghosts, their touch paralizes ( 5 sec) and damages health (25 pt). They may summon Skeletons...so, finally there is a reason in their name..

=============================
LICHES
=============================

Lich Skull
One of the skulls in the ashpits, may be a skull of a dead powerful sorcerer that still has magical powers.

Lich
I used the mesh of the Lich in Tribunal. They may summon undeads like the Ancestor Ghost, their touch absorb health (50 pt), and damage strength and endurance (10-15 pt), and have often magical items like rings, that can use in battle.

Ancient Lich
Using a modified version of the Barilzar's head, the Ancient Lich is a Npc very rare and powerful. He may summon powerful undeads like the Bonelords, and cast powerful spells. He has often magical items like enchanted weapons,
rings and amulets, that can use in battle.

Gedna Relvel
The powerful female Lich of Tribunal has her own model (she is a Npc now). She has long hair and blue eyes, and a female voice. She can now show the Robe of the Lich that she wears.
