undead plague in the city, but my players are too high level to be challenged by zombies, which seem appropriate. they're all 6th level. wights? ghouls? ghasts? i suppose a whole buttload of ghasts would work. when the necromancer cult who started it finally shows i can whip out the big guns and hit them with red dragon skeletons and frost giant zombies... but for now when there's just this plague of undead contagious undead they have no reason for yet... what do i go with?

no, their AC's aren't all that high, there's one guy with a 21 when he dodges, the others are average. i just don't see zombies as being that much of a challenge. personally *I* feel as if they have slightly too much trasure. but one of the other players who is taking over as DM (soon i hope i really want to play) who i confab with thinks i've been a bit light with it. but they've been mowing through what i think are challenging encounters. its hard to scale when you have 6 players. i eaither beat their asses mercilessly, or they have no trouble at all. since i went from 5 to 6 players i can't seem to find a happy medium and i don' think standard zombies would cut it. but you make some good recomendaitons, thanks.

There's a feat in Libris Mortis that works a little like Augment summoning for undead creation. Say the Zoms have been made using this, give 'em +4 str and have 'em try for the grapple and munch.
