Saving Throw Will negates, see text; Spell Resistance yes
This spell allows you a degree of control over an undead
creature. If the target is intelligent, it perceives your words and
actions favorably (treat its attitude as friendly). It will not attack
you while the spell lasts. You can give the target suggestions,
but you must succeed at an opposed Charisma check to
convince it to do anything it wouldn't ordinarily do. (Retries are
not allowed.) An intelligent commanded undead never obeys
suicidal or obviously harmful suggestions, but it might be
convinced that something very dangerous is worth doing.
An unintelligent undead creature gets no saving throw against this spell. When you control a mindless being, you can communicate only basic commands, such as “Come here,” “Go there,” “Fight,” “Stand still,” and so on. Unintelligent undead won't resist suicidal or obviously harmful orders.
Any act by you or your apparent allies that threatens the commanded undead (regardless of its Intelligence) breaks the spell. You command the undead creature by voice and it understands you, no matter what language you speak.
