- Get a fresh corpse
- Begin by casting preservation on the corpse.
- Prepare the corpse to become the desired type of undead.
- Bind soulstones, taken from creatures near death, to the corpse.
- prepare corpse soulstone - possibly more than once (It's a good idea to keep adding soulstones until you can't add more.)
- Cast the final 'raise undead' spell.
