Create crypt servant was used, similarly to the simpler animate dead spell, to reanimate the body of a deceased person as a special undead called a crypt servant, that was especially suited to protect and maintain a designated tomb. The spell had to be performed at the burial place intended as the servant's domain in order to function. Apart from conventional means, a crypt servant could be destroyed by the reversed form of this spell, destroy crypt servant,[note 2] or dispel magic. The spell intended for the even more powerful undead, destroy crypt thing, was also effective against a crypt servant.
