They are slimy creatures were shaped like a "human brain" with black bat-wings, suckers and skeletal appendages trailing their flying forms. They have toothless mouths yet they could suck the soul from a mortal by gripping their flesh. More Cryptspawn could always be summoned at will by their masters when in short supply. They are hideous as they are powerful and are often used to guard darklord chambers tombs and treasures. Darklords can use a flood of crypt spawn to attack and overwhelm an enemy or set a plague of them upon a land to despoil livestock and crops and create mayhem.
