- In Skyrim, when the sun falls, the dead rise! Beat back the zombie hordes, and retrieve valuable Mort Flesh. (Creations appear at night at certain locations in the world and through a quest.)
This Creation adds the quest The Rising Dead, which is automatically added to your journal upon installation, along with an anonymous letter. After reading the letter, you will be directed to a Ritual Site north of Southfringe Sanctum to stop a group of Necromancers from using ancient magic to conjure zombies. However, once you get there you will discover that you are too late, as the site has been overrun with zombies. Indeed, zombie hordes will now randomly appear as world interactions all across Skyrim. You can also learn spells to summon zombies by finding the related spell tomes at the Ritual Site or as random loot.
- This Creation received an update in February 2019 which added zombie spawn points at set locations.[verification needed — broadly where?]
