Special abilities Edit

A lich lord has most of the usual undead immunities, specifically to critical hits, disease, level drain, ability drain, mind-affecting spells, paralysis, poison, and sneak attacks. However, this creature does not have the usual undead immunity to death magic. (Probably a bug.)

The attacks of a lich lord stun on-hit. In addition, this creature has use of a doom gaze three times per day.

A lich lord is a level 20 wizard with the following spells prepared.

Level 1 magic missile
Level 2 Balagarn's iron horn, Melf's acid arrow, stone bones
Level 3 dispel magic, fireball, lightning bolt, Mestil's acid breath, slow
Level 4 charm monster, contagion, Evard's black tentacles, fear, wall of fire
Level 5 ball lightning, dismissal, energy buffer, firebrand, hold monster
Level 6 acid fog, chain lightning, greater dispelling, greater spell breach, mass haste
Level 7 Bigby's grasping hand, delayed blast fireball, finger of death, power word, stun
Level 8 Bigby's clenched fist, incendiary cloud
Level 9 energy drain

Notes Edit

  • This is one of the creatures that can be summoned with the summon greater undead feat. It improves upon the lich summons by having improved armor class (+1), hit points (+11), hit dice/caster level (+1, with a consequential +1 to will saves), and spell selection (Bigby's clenched fist and energy drain).
