Cormyr, in regards to FRC Cormyr, has the following laws in regards to undead animation.
|The animating of corpses legally purchased or obtained is legal in Cormyr under the following conditions:Killing a monster or finding the corpse of a monster or outlaw in the wilderness is considered legal acquisition of said corpse.|
No undead in populated areas the animator doesn't specifically own.
No undead in city limits, or in sight of rural farms.
The crown is not responsible for damages to your undead, and will not lend aid to you in collection of damages. It is not a crime to damage the undead regardless of 'ownership'. The kingdom of Cormyr does not wish to become involved in personal grudges over philosophically motivated destruction or creation of undead.
It is not a crime to destroy undead.
The undead have no legal rights in Cormyr.
Harming a citizen of Cormyr, or a legal resident of Cormyr in order to protect, avenge, or aid undead is assault and/or murder.
You are responsible for any damages that undead you summon cause. If the undead you summon or dominate commit a crime, you will be charged with that crime.
Dominating existing undead is legal, so long as they are not brought within sight of a populated area, city, or rural farm. These existing undead have no rights. In dominating these undead you become responsible for their actions so long as they are under your control, and after they are released if they are released near enough to a populated area to be considered a threat.
If you are wanting to know what the laws are in source material on necromancy and undead animation, I can dig deeper, but if you asking in regards to FRC, these are the Official Laws the DM Team agreed upon.
