I look forward to hearing the rest whenever you get the time.

Life can be seen as a game with no reset button, no extra lives, and if the power goes out there is no restarting.  If that's all you see life as you are not long for this world, and never will get it.

Oh, right.  Forgot.

So far, one party is dead, and the other - the less experienced party - now has to try to take down a bardic lich on their own.

It's not going to end well.

The campaign will be over - for good or for ill - the Saturday after next.  I'll post the shit then.

Some how I want to say that you are an asshole for that. That just seems....unnatural.

Awesome Roger, whenever works for you.  :)


I agree Don Coyote. Bardic Lich makes my brain get the bad-tingle. It DOES sound like a great way to preserve a history in song FOREVER though. I only really buck at the notion of a "good" alignment lich. Lawful neutral would be about as decent as a lich conceptually gets IMO, and such a lich is doomed if the other liches discover such a "weakness".

Anyone with CL11 qualifies to be a lich.

So, like, a 14th level ranger with the natural weapons fighting style option.  Yeah, his spell suck, but he's a fear-mongering, permanent paralysis delivery device.  And you can't see him coming, and you can't really run away.

At least your players seen to enjoy your brand of hell. My last PF group crashed and burned so hard that I haven't run PF in 9 months.

I think y'all are looking at this the wrong way. You need to think like Rob Zombie, Ozzy Osbourne, GWAR type shit. Especially Rob Zombie.

It is an unfortunate fact that every man who seeks to disseminate knowledge must contend not only against ignorance itself, but against false instruction as well. No sooner do we deem ourselves free from a particularly gross superstition, than we are confronted by some enemy to learning who would plunge us back into the darkness -H.P.Lovecraft

He who fights with monsters must take care lest he thereby become a monster -Nietzsche

Yeah. I've seen rules for other variants and still haven't stopped screaming. I only imagine a neutral one at the furthest end of plot wankery involving gods and crap. But from a story perspective a high end mummy is what I think I'd use if I was going for a gods and shit type of plot.

Liches are always evil. If a Lich seems not evil, sucks to be you fool.
