I had my "session 0" with my players, and the only feedback I got was "We would like to face a lich eventually" as an adventure goal/hook. One of my players is playing a valkyrie type cleric.

Post any and all things valkyrie and lich related. Campaign ideas, adventure hooks, images, module suggestions, spells or magic items. It is all welcome and wanted.
We're playing 3.5e and I'm starting everyone at level 5, but don't let that system or level limit your suggestions. Small picture dump incoming.

It's one of those subjective things that varies with setting and edition. It's actually one of those things that's best hashed out in a session 0 because the players will invariably end up debating something that's actually known by their characters. If it's not known then tell them "no one's checked" though given the existence of several divination spells and deities someone has checked.

So lich ideas:

If you were doing 5th I'd say do TOA. But there's tonnes of classic liches. Most liches are unethical scholars not megalomaniacs though so while they tread on mortals they do so to achieve something. Bear that in mind. They are geniuses above and beyond human levels of intellect. Not much beyond but enough that they're cleverer than you. When running a creature like that you're not going to be able to employ tactics at their level. Metagame a little. Not a lot, don't DM vs Players it but this guy is smarter than you and you need a leg up to get on his level. probably more.

Don't hard cheat and build a perfect counter to what your players turn up with on the day unless they lay it all for him to see. If he has scouts or spies and any lived after seeing the party in action then he'll know their class based on their abilities (assuming they used some signature abilities) and equipment. So he'll know what their best and worst saves are likely to be (combined with their obvious wit, speed, build whatever) he won't necessarily get it perfect but he should at least be countering their class. If he doesn't do that after a turn or two he should figure it out. He can't read their character sheets but he will know anything they've let his network know about and he'll have a good idea what to expect. Don't have him fall for stupid shit. He'll have friends, make sure he has a strategy of some sort.

His lair will be defensible, the terrain will have more problems for players to manage than opportunities. He won't fight them in the throne room unless he funnels them into a narrow entrance and makes them run up a slope (and more). The players will have to think about how to overcome this or whether to power through. He'll have cover where it suits him and maybe some other hazards which are aimed in such a way that they hurt attackers and won't put him in danger unless he ends up out of position a long way.

If all else fails have a couple of crazy but likely gambits. I made an elder orb who had several abilities that would conveniently be exactly where the players when if they triggered. He just knew that he'd end up facing enemies there, he'd done the maths. Don't overuse it, and remember to account for it like any other attack when you do. He had one use of that and several other gambits. He is smarter than you. I was honest with my players when I sprung that what I was doing and that also that particular trick only happens once in this fight. It wasn't a gotcha, it was more like a spell or ability.

Speaking of network, while he won't run an empire he's causing trouble enough the players come for him so he needs to be up to something. He'll have a few trusted hirelings who deal with other mortals as his lieutenants (maybe corrupt gang, maybe he's even quite civil with librarians who give him access to their tomes) and maybe a few less conventional pets and allies, devils or demons of Orcus, lesser undead, constructs, monstrosities, maybe lesser dragons, etc. He wants knowledge or power for it's own end so he will have spies. He won't have a national network but a few relatively autonomous and reliable (and smart) allies and if the players ping his radar he'll probably have them observe before he acts. Maybe let the players have a chance to catch one or more of the spies. He will also use divination and scry to some extent.

In that case he'll play defensive while he scopes them. If he knows they're coming he will have memorised a good spell list for them and prepared a magic item or trap or two. Maybe even spring a simulacrum on them.

The lich isn't super threatened if his phylactery is safe so he will probably engage the players on his terms once they start to be a real threat. The final fight is when he'll throw everything at them including minions. But remember he has little to fear even if he dies, unless he has reason t…

Well that was a fun first session. Surprise guest who decided to try playing too with a premade character, improvised a cultists-in-a-cave encounter that pretty much went off without too much trouble and ended with them leaving the cave only to see the silhouettes of the goddess of death murdering the goddess of magic in the sky. (Pretty much got the response I wanted from the players.)

Will be fun to continue that one, hopefully with some better tools on my side to handle the encounters without improvising too much.

So we've had Old Spice with the "Gentleman" class (https://twitter.com/oldspice/status/961362988019064832) and we've had Wendy's recently introduce "Feast Of Legends" at NYCC which is an entire ruleset of its own and a clear continuation of sassy Wendy's lashing out at other fast food franchises.

Am I missing any? What do you think about the backlash of people crying about sexist terms or bitching about it being publicity stunts?

I'm interested in all kinds of magic schools, systems and spells.

Try Abalone! The rules are dead simple, but the strategy is chess meets sumo wrestling. Basically your goal is to push the other player's pieces off of the board, but you can only move them by pushing a longer chain than they are defending with.

For a non-strategy game, Suspend is an amazing balancing game for when you are burnt out on Jenga, and is pretty much just better in every way. You can play conservatively to get rid of your own pieces, or dangerously to try to force your opponent to make an error and knock down the stack

>A 110 IQ person is smart, and a 120 IQ person is a genius. Less than 2% of all people have
no. 15 IQ is one standard deviation. The IQ to int mapping works pretty well.Slap a 0 on the end and it works well. But then you realise that actually 120 is actually where you start to notice "this guy is kind of smart". And 12 is where the person is discernably smarter to the point where it makes a measurable difference. If you were right then someone mechanically no different (10 and 11) are obviously measurable in real life. Someone with an INT of 19 is 6 standard deviations above the norm.

Physical stats are the same. An olympic athlete is several standard deviations out. A pound might be the difference for a marathon runner but combat isn't marathon running and they aren't strength characters. Top long distance runners aren't just lean, they have little elastic bands on their arms. But melee combat isn't that. It's short (1 minute usually) bursts of action with lots of walking 3mph in between.

Veterans have 14 strength and the guards of cities have units of them. You need 15 strength to wear plate without your combat effectiveness reduced. So you're saying that basically no one ever wore plate? Firefighters wear 60lbs of gear. Soldiers carry body armour, rations and stuff. By core rules each point of str increases your unencumbered carry by 5 pounds so that machine gunner is 3 points higher. Lifting weights is very different from encumbrance too. Being able to lift 10 pounds more doesn't mean carrying 10 pounds more. It makes a little difference.

We just entered the Tomb of Annihilation. Were still the same characters that started the adventure.
We did lose our second cleric and our Paladin because of real life.
Our group is:
Dwarven Kensai Monk
'Light Elf Light Domain Cleric of Lathander
Red Dragonborn Redemption Paladin
Human Lore Bard/Rogue
Eldarin Abjuration Wizard

I'm the player with the high stat rolls but I've been using stuff to buff my party and the occasional Fireball when needed.
Wish us luck.
