Crypt Lords are undead, who have the ability to command lesser undead, such as zombies, skeletons, and ghouls.
Whatever shape they once had before they were reanimated, it had been twisted by rot and decay. Despite having a hunched back, they are almost as tall as Minotaurs. They have huge bloated faces, and mouths filled not with teeths but sharp yellow bones, bones taken from their victimes. Their bodies look like a patchwork, which is the result of them eating the dead to recover their bodies and fusing them with their flesh and bones. In each of their huge eye sockets sits an amalgamation of eyes, sometimes over a dozen, stolen from corpses.
Poisonous black blood flows through them, carrying diseases and death that they use as a weapon to kill their enemies by spitting on them.
The estimated level is around 22. Possibly 26 if one factors in their special abilities. They’re mostly dangerous because they can command the dead around them to do things like lie in wait or use pincer attacks.
