The lich is perhaps the single most powerful form of undead known to exist. It seeks to further its own power at all costs and has little or no interest in the affairs of the living, except where those affairs interfere with its own. The lich is skeletal in appearance, and its eye sockets are empty save for the fierce pinpoints of light which serve the lich as eyes. The lich can see in the deepest dark--or the brightest light. An aura of cold and darkness surrounds the lich, making it appear all the more frightening.

Army of Darkness: as part of an Army of Darkness, the lich is constantly under the effect of the skeletal mastery known as "regeneration" (see "help spell skeletal mastery"). The strain of the powerful magic will consume all of the lich's stamina at war start.

Command: siphon [player]
In addition to possessing a considerable intellect of their own, liches also have the ability to siphon the minds of opponents. Besides damaging the enemy (1-10 damage) and incapacitating them for a round, the mind siphon also allows the lich to gain some of his opponent's knowledge, though this newfound wisdom is difficult to control at best. The lich will gain intelligence in relation to the intelligence of the siphoned opponent, but the effect only lasts about half a minute, and fluctuates wildly and randomly during that time.
