Lich

(image)

The Dark Ritual which transforms human to lich is the greatest mystery and the greatest achievement of necromancy art. Liches possess an extremely long life. Liches are able to use spells which unattainable for mortal. Liches are able to subjugate powerful undead and handle dead warriors who was called by other necromancers. But greater importance has the fact, that lord-lich able to share his knowledge about the Dark Ritual with his servants. So, other necromancers striving to enter the liches' service, hoping to earn immortality. No matter how powerfil living necromancer is, he'll never become the king of undead. But every lich is king since the moment of his rising. White mages and other necromancer-haters usually claiming that source of liches' power is fear. It's certainly true, but there is no fear of lich's might but fear of death which derives from the very nature of humans. Power of liches originating from their possibility to free a person of that fear, so this is the most unbreakable power.
