Turn undead (disambiguation)
Turn undead refers to the ability to cause undead monsters to turn and flee from you for a time. The name comes from Dungeons & Dragons. In NetHack's punnish fashion, some forms of undead turning can also turn dead things "un-dead" (alive): see the revive article for more details.
"Turn undead" or "undead turning" in NetHack may refer to several concepts:
- the #turn extended command, which scares, destroys, or pacifies nearby undead. Does not revive corpses and eggs.
- the spellbook of turn undead, a beam spell that scares undead and revives corpses and eggs
- the wand of undead turning, the wand equivalent of the spell
- reading the cursed Book of the Dead, which will revive nearby corpses and eggs, along with summoning some undead monsters
