What ever the notebook had been made of, it had been cheap. Maybe horse hide, or perhaps gnome. Either way, within the stained pages were a wide selection of thoughts and designs for various creative recipes and tactics employing necromancy, disease, and alchemy to produce results ranging from the disgustingly amusing to the disgustingly lethal. The hand that penned the document was a delicate, flowing one. Though it was hurried, as if the author hadn't expected anyone to see the page other than himself, some lab staff and students, and maybe, later, an editor.
'This one is pretty cheap and pretty simple. Works best if you've got a spare corpse that the breathers knew in person. The closer the better. Standard explosive animation procedure. Stuff the torso with any normal charge. Don't damage the lungs, or larynx. Need those later. Leave them connected too. Replace everything else with what ever slop or sewage you have on hand. Smash up a few pounds of clear glass. They can't see it in the wounds. Mix that into the slop with the explosives and close the thing up.
Next you'll want to pretty the corpse up. Make it look as life-like as you can. This is where keeping the capacity to speak will help. Just get the construct to call out 'help me' and 'it hurts' a few times. Its erstwhile allies and friends will come running to assist. Then boom. If you're facing goblins, or Alteraci, just attach an obvious coin pouch filled with stone disks to give the illusion of coins, and have the zombie call out about a 'reward' or 'having money.' This will lure the goblins, or Alteraci in to attempt to murder and rob the construct. At which point it will detonate.'

Serata: I am desperately stalling and trying to find something to do with myself at work. Posted a bunch of stuff about Sherbourne so y'all know who she is and what she looks like...and I still have 4 1/2 hours left before I can go home and play again. T_T
