When you cast this spell, you can assume the form of any Small or Medium corporeal creature of the undead type, which must be vaguely humanoid-shaped (like a ghoul, skeleton, or zombie). You gain a bite attack (1d6 for Medium forms, 1d4 for Small forms), two claw or slam attacks (1d6 for Medium forms, 1d4 for Small forms), and lifesense. If the form you assume has any of the following abilities, you gain the listed ability: climb 30 feet, fly 30 feet, swim 30 feet, darkvision, low-light vision, and scent.

In this form, you detect as an undead creature (such as with detect creature, but not with magic that reveals your true form, and are treated as undead for the purposes of channeled energy, cure spells, and inflict spells, but not for other effects that specifically target or react differently to undead.
