Little Red's Guide to Lichdom

Watermarked PDF

Eternal Evil

Liches are some of the most compelling foes in fiction. Their relative immortality, powerful spellcasting, phylacteries, and nasty disposition makes for some of the most iconic enemies you’re likely to face. This book kicks them up a notch by giving you the inside scoop on how to get the most bang for your buck out of your favorite evil undead spellcasters.

Rules for both Pathfinder 1st Edition and 2nd Editions!


  • Alternate Phylacteries: You can get pretty creative with your lich’s phylactery. We’ve got rules for stuff like: abstract concepts (“the era of an empire”), familiars, goals/oaths, gods holding onto your soul, people or places as phylacteries, REVERSE PHYLACTERIES, and even techno-magical ones!
  • Variant Lich Types: We’ve got rules to make your weirdest lich fever dreams come true! Includes are rules for: alchemical liches, bardic liches, divine liches, hive liches, lich-souls in intelligent items, crafting-based liches, martial liches (lots of those), psycho-liches (occult, emotion-based, liches), and revenge driven rogue-liches called “wayward souls”!
  • Game Mastery: We go into the origins of liches, how to become a lich, cover things you might not have considered (Just how well can an immortal plan? What kinds of skills do they develop? etc)

Great expansions on the lich concept in terms of type variations and alternate no two liches have to be the same at all. Also, I knew this product was for me when I saw the portrayal of interspecies interracial homosexual necrophiliac marriage (goin' straight into my next adventure arc).

PDF is working for us and other users. That seems like a local issue. Please contact support.

Hi Christopher,
Thanks for bringing that to our attention. That seems to be an issue on the site, not an issue with the content. We'll have to reach out to the staff at DriveThruRPG to see what's going on.

Product Information
File Size:

Original electronic
Scanned image
These products were created by scanning an original printed edition. Most older books are in scanned image format because original digital layout files never existed or were no longer available from the publisher.

For PDF download editions, each page has been run through Optical Character Recognition (OCR) software to attempt to decipher the printed text. The result of this OCR process is placed invisibly behind the picture of each scanned page, to allow for text searching. However, any text in a given book set on a graphical background or in handwritten fonts would most likely not be picked up by the OCR software, and is therefore not searchable. Also, a few larger books may be resampled to fit into the system, and may not have this searchable text background.

For printed books, we have performed high-resolution scans of an original hardcopy of the book. We essentially digitally re-master the book. Unfortunately, the resulting quality of these books is not as high. It's the problem of making a copy of a copy. The text is fine for reading, but illustration work starts to run dark, pixellating and/or losing shades of grey. Moiré patterns may develop in photos. We mark clearly which print titles come from scanned image books so that you can make an informed purchase decision about the quality of what you will receive.
Original electronic format
These ebooks were created from the original electronic layout files, and therefore are fully text searchable. Also, their file size tends to be smaller than scanned image books. Most newer books are in the original electronic format. Both download and print editions of such books should be high quality.
