Master lich is a monster in ADOM. They are relatively more powerful than normal liches and significantly less dangerous than lich kings and emperor liches thanks to the lack of stat draining abilities. They can easily be found in a greater vault of undead, should a player generate one, and can (albeit rarely) be generated in medium and high-DL areas. Master liches are the most common type of undead guardian of treasure graves.

Master liches use confusion and glowing balls from distance, summon other undead (mainly ghosts and spectre-type monsters) and have paralyzing melee attack (which is, however, somewhat weak). While they cannot drain PC's stats, they are still able to curse items or the PC himself/herself. They also have a healing spell, which completely restores all their HP when cast.

As all undead, they are vulnerable to undead-slaying weapons and ammunition. As master liches are not significantly dangerous in melee, it is possible to simply use high-damaging weapons.

Monster memory[]

This lich is so successful at drawing the life forces from others to feed its powers, holding death at bay even though its own life has fled, that it commands power over some other undead. Its magic is powerful enough to support itself and still have energy left for a strong magical offense.
