undead by becoming undead themselves. Instead, their advanced studies of the 
dark arts have made them stronger, but not nearly as powerful as they would 
have been as Liches. Because they retain their humanity, they do not fear holy 
magic. They wield plague staves carved from the bones of still animated victims 
of the plague."
+unit_description= _ "The dread inspired by black magic comes chiefly from how 
little is known about it, to the common man. If immortality is truly what it 
grants, then the transformation to lichdom would seem something that would be 
finished as soon as possible, lest disease or infirmity take the mage before 
his time. Yet, on occasion, a dark sorceror has been seen who was quite aged, 
and yet clearly powerful enough to rival a lich.
+One can only speculate why such a person would delay, or forgo that path 
entirely. It is surmised that either lichdom falls short of the true 
immortality it is claimed to be, or that there is a terrible and unspoken price 
for becoming one.

goal: the quest to achieve immortality. Though a great deal is sacrified in the 
rebirth, in becoming a lich one cheats death of that which truly gives it
