Dark Lord

(image)

Necromancers who aren't able to perform the Dark Ritual usually complaining that it's unfairly hard to subjugate other necromancers for non-lich. They can't even imagine how hard for lich to subjugate other liches. Every lich is king of his own empire so others looks like competitors for him. Mighty lich can easily defeat weaker ones and subjugate him warrior, but is'm mush harder to force lich itself to cooperate. It may happen only if gulf in power between two is completely irresistible. Only lich who exceeds all of his time liches taken along could become the Dark Lord. Such liches are absolute rulers whom can be called, without exaggeration, the most powerful men in the world. Lich-haters, especially paladines, accuse liches in making themselves gods for their followers. Although it's partly true, reason of lich-worshipers existence isn't compulsion but a natural desire of mortal men to admire immortal, infinity powerful and wise Dark Lord. Hatred towards Dark Lord isn't less natural as since it's always to tolerate greatness when it's close.
