Duration 10 minutes

You partially revive a corpse to ask it questions. It resumes death after the duration. The corpse must still have a mouth and can't be undead. A corpse can only be targeted by this spell once every 10 days.

You can ask up to five questions. It knows only what it knew in life, including languages. Answers are usually brief, cryptic, or repetitive, and it is under no compulsion to offer a truthful answer. This spell doesn't return the soul to the body, so it can't learn new information, doesn't understand anything that's happened since it died, and can't speculate about the future.
