Summon undead III was one of the series of summon undead spells available to arcane casters in the Realms.[1]

This spell could summon a huge skeleton, a large zombie, or a ghoul.[1] Usually, the skeleton of an troll or an ogre zombie were chosen.[2] As an alternative, the spell could summon one to three large skeletons, one to three medium-sized zombies, two to five medium-sized skeletons, or two to five small zombies—provided they were all within 30 feet of each other.[1]

If a ghoul was summoned, the spell was considered a chaotic spell in addition to an evil one.[1]
