Powers: Each undead animal the necrologist creates can animate a recently dead animal of the same type, once per month. These second-generation undead cannot animate dead. Spells per Day: When a new necrologist level past 1st is gained, the character gains new spells per day as if he also gained a level in a spellcasting class he belonged to before adding the prestige class. With the exception of the ability to turn and rebuke undead, he does not gain any other benefit a character of that 34 class would have gained (metamagic or item creation feats, hit points beyond those he receives from the prestige class, familiar abilities, and so on) except for an increased effective level of spellcasting.

He can cast lightning bolt as a sorcerer of his total levels (racial + class). For every three points of damage the lightning bolt deals (before accounting for saving throws), the lightning zombie takes 1 point of damage, to a minimum of 1 point. The lightning zombie may choose to reduce the number of damage dice dealt by the effect, and may reduce the die size (d4, d3, or d2) or even have the lightning bolt deal only 1 damage. Lightning damage that the lightning zombie inflicts in this manner cannot be used to heal himself.

This fused flesh must be from an animated skeleton or zombie under the necrologist’s control that is the same size or one size increment smaller than the creature to which he wants to transform. For example, if he wanted to transform into an undead ogre (size Large), he would need a skeleton or zombie of size Medium or Large for the transformation. The necrologist makes contact with the skeleton or zombie, then absorbs part of its flesh as he changes shape.
