Don't forget dancing to Michael Jackson's music.  :)

I haven't written anything, but I have made a mob class usable, and with 
that you can do a lot.  How?  Define a mob class "undead"  Then if you 
want it to do something special (like undead regenerate 2x as fast as 
normal people) you can just add it in to the limits.  I did however make 
a spell, turn undead, that was like earthquake (room affect spell) that 
damaged ONLY undead.

I would think that moaning, groaning and dancing should be enough.  :)
