If a zombie or skeleton that you have animated with Animate Dead is reduced to 0 hit points, can you reanimate it using Animate dead?
The spell description only says:
Choose a pile of bones or a corpse of a Medium or Small humanoid within range.
Well presumably when a skeleton reduces to 0 hit points it becomes a pile of bones. Even if the bones are damaged, the spell does not require ‘unbroken bones’.
As a dungeon master I might require using the Mending cantrip to restore broken bones to some degree, however I can’t find any specific ruling.
I’m looking for a rules focused answer rather than a fluffy home rule answer 🙂
