Fear Aura (Su): Creatures of less than 5 HD in a 60-foot radius that look at a lich must succeed on a DC 20 Will save or be affected as though by a fear spell from a 14th-level sorcerer. A creature that successfully saves cannot be affected again by the same lich’s aura for 24 hours.
Paralyzing Touch (Su): Any living creature a lich hits with its touch attack must succeed on a DC 20 Fortitude save or be permanently paralyzed. Remove paralysis or any spell that can remove a curse can free the victim. The effect cannot be dispelled. Anyone paralyzed by a lich seems dead, though a DC 20 Spot check or a DC 15 Heal check reveals that the victim is still alive.

A set of cruelly spiked full plate armor seems almost empty, as though little more than a skeleton were strapped inside. Bright pinpoints of blood-red light gleam inside the skull-shaped helmet. The fi gure hefts a black morningstar in its left hand, while its right hand seems to crackle with black energy.
