Lichdom (Beta)

In 1 collection by LaughingLeader

Lichdom adds a way to turn yourself into a Lich, granting new skills/benefits, and the ability to bind your soul to a phylactery, granting immortality.

This mod is currently in beta, so expect sweeping changes and potential bugs.

If you'd like to look like the Lich in the screenshots, use Majoras - Character Creation Plus - Definitive Edition with the Human Male Undead race, Face value 13 or 14. 14 has the Lich body, but you'll need to remove your armor for it to look right.

Grab this if you'd like to transform your Origin characters and use CCP's custom appearance options.

Phylacteries are charged with souls (represented as "Power" on the Phylactery). When a Lich is about to die, they get teleported to their Phylactery, and an appropriate amount of souls are removed from the Phylactery (-2 in Tactician+, -1 in any difficulty below that). Phylacteries can be recharged by using the "Drain Soul" skill.

Lich Features
  • Create a Phylactery using a Soul Extractor, gaining immortality as long as it does not break.
    • Characters using the Lich preset gain 1 free Soul Extractor initially.
    • Note: Currently there's no way to create another Soul Extractor (beyond applying the Lich preset to a different character), so take good care of your phylactery!
  • Passives
    • Immunity to Bleeding and Suffocating.
    • Gains the Zombie talent (not visible in the talent menu for non-Undead races).
    • No surfaces created when hit.
    • Water Resistance, small amount of Air and Piercing Resistance.
    • If Feared or Stunned, Lichs roll for a "Saving Throw", which may clear the status.
  • Racial skills are replaced with Lich versions (Undead races also gain these racial skills).
  • Liches created by the preset start with a unique one-handed staff that scales to their level.
  • All Lich passive statuses can be made hidden, for those wanting to hide their Lichdom.

Becoming a Lich
  1. Use the Soul Extractor, granted to you from any of the following:
    • Select the Lich preset in Character Creation.
    • Select the Lich preset in LeaderLib's preset menu.
    • Use the "setup" debug command in Lichdom's Settings menu (from LeaderLib's mod menu).

You'll then get some choices for the form of your phylactery. After picking an option, you'll be granted your Lich skills and passives.

Note on One-handed Staffs
The Lich's Staff is one-handed, so you can use it with a shield, or shield slot items added by other mods (Like Weapon Expansion's grimoires). Using it with another one-handed weapon will result in the staff not being visible, depending on what slot it's equipped in.

This unfortunately is a result of DOS2's weapon animation system not having anything to handle displaying a staff when the current animation type is anything dual-wielded (a staff in the offhand also makes the Staff skill requirement say there's no staff equipped).

Staff + Shield has animations, or staff alone has animations, so keep that in mind when picking your weapon setup.

Lich Race
Currently in Lichdom's Debug Menu is the option to transform into the "Undead Lich" equivalent of your current race. This should preserve your skills, talents, origin tags, gender, and equipment, but consider this experimental.

You'll need to use a respec mirror to get your portrait to regenerate.

You can also revert to your previous race, but keep in mind that your previous portrait/looks won't be preserved.

Note: If using Majoras Character Creation Plus, I recommend grabbing my patch here: Lichdom - Character Creation Plus Patch. This is required to have Origin characters work right when transforming. After transforming, visit the respec mirror to get your appearance to look correct.

Beta Notes
  • Many of the current skills are initial ideas. Balancing may be required!
  • While the "small box" phylactery says it's a ring, it cannot be equipped. It seems only equipment can have charges, so the box is technically a ring right now so you'll have tooltip info on its current charge amount.
  • Be aware that dying inside some sort of specific story encounter and teleporting to your phylactery could potentially break something, so be sure make safety saves, or keep your phylactery on you for those situations.

Plans for future updates:
  • More skills to unlock as you grow in power.
  • More visual effects.
  • Unique icons for skills/statuses.
  • Phylactery balancing.
  • Unique visual set choices for the Lich race, with a CCP integration mod/patch.

If you're feeling generous, an easy way to show support is by tipping me a coffee:


I love modding this game, and I love interacting with the community. Every bit helps to keep me doing what I'm doing. Thanks!

I selected an Undead Elf and the Lich Preset, yet I didn't start with the Skills mentioned, the Soul Extractor, nor the Staff mentioned either. I started with the Elf Skills, Mosquitos, the Skill that pulls Blood/Poison from bodies and an Ice Skill that calls down 3 Shards of Ice.

What could be causing this to Happen?

I may not be able to save this Campaign as it is one with friends, but I would like to know, so I can try it in future.

Just wanted to say this mod is a game changer for me. I love ice and the abilites are amazing, i believe it was you that showed me how to add the console and pull up abilites from the game in discord. So i always add all the lich powers from each race to my character and i love the death system with being knocked out for a few turns. My brother thinks its OP that i basically never die and he thinks it shouldnt be my turn after dieing. but we love the game being extremely difficult so changing it would probably make it not fun for others. But dang this mod is so amazing.

Also if others are having trouble with the staff. I just use the mod manager book mod that laughingleader also made and i change my preset with that and i immediately get the staff. I just go back to the mirror and change my stats back to how i want them.

Do you get more lich skills as you level up, or is what you start with all you get?

Quick note that I was able to begin Act 2 without having to totally disable the mod, but instead just using the debug menu to remove lichdom effects (option 7) before attempting to move onward. This might help keep a save cleaner than otherwise for anyone facing the same issue.
