This necromancer spell allows you to deanimate certain magical
minions. Minions that are deanimated are inert and can usually be
carried around, and can almost always be reanimated into the
original (or something similar to the original) creature.
Necromancers sometimes prefer to carry around deanimated minions
instead of raw materials, as the setup time is usually shorter.
One danger of deanimate is that it is not always successful. Even
the most skilled casters occasionally end up destroying minions
instead of deanimating them. The exception are animated corpses,
which simply fall down as their animating magic is dismissed.
Deanimate will not deanimate flesh beasts and clay men. For clay
men, it's cheaper to simply form a new one, and there's no real
way to deanimate a flesh beast without destroying it.
