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

This spell could summon an allip, a ghast, or a huge zombie,[1] which was usually the remains of a wyvern.[2] As an alternative, the spell could summon one to three ghouls, one to three huge skeletons, one to three large zombies, two to five large or medium-sized skeletons, or two to five medium-sized or small zombies—provided they were all within 30 feet of each other.[1]

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