Hard to go wrong with undead monsters, they are such an iconic and tried and true monster. The living dead have been envisioned in many ways but I think they are best served when the mind of the living is still retained in the withered dead husk. For my Lich I went with less skeleton and more fleshy like a mummy. I imagined the body being dried out during the transformation rituals and then again loosed up and made flexible with arcane ointments and alchemical liniments. The important part though is that it is an undead super wizard that seek ever more power and eternal life through death. Had a lot of fun with this one, better watch out for that +5 staff of Hurting!
