I have never been a fan of Turn undead ability for clerics. Undead fleeing and running around a dungeon just doesn't fit my setting. So here is my alternative I'm going to try.
Good clerics can rebuke undead, Calling on the name of his god to smite those abominations of unlife.
All undead in the presence of the cleric at the time of the rebuke must bake a save. Only creatures the same HD of the level of the caster are effected. All saves are made at a penalty of the level of the cleric.
All undead who fail its save take 1D4+the level of the caster.
All undead that fail its save with a roll of 2-3 take 1D4x the level of the caster.
All undead that fail its save with a roll of 1 are instantly destroyed.
For those that use the reverse of spells for evil priests can use this spell as a mass heal spell to controlled or summoned undead. Just reverse the damage as damage healed.
All undead who make its save its healed 1D4+the level of the caster.
All undead that make its save with a natural roll of 18-19 is healed 1D4x the level of the caster.
All undead that make its save with a natural roll of 20 are instantly healed to its max HP.
