The Lich

The Lich is a complicated Undead role that can Decay both the Undead and enemies. It gains a Lich Spell for every Undead player that dies, or for holding the Philosopher's Stone for three consecutive nights. A Lich Spell can be used to choose different talents to level up, which can either power up the Lich or power up the effect of Decay on other players. The Lich activates Decay by default every night, or can choose to self-visit instead of casting Decay to do an additional activation.

Using a Lich Spell can power up the Lich in one of three ways:

  • Make the Lich stronger
  • Make Decay on Undead stronger
  • Make Decay on enemies stronger

See Lich Spell for details of the full talent tree.

  • The Lich often starts with the Philosopher's Stone, as it will give them an additional Lich Spell every three nights that they hold it.
  • Talent choice is important and game-dependent.
