There are paths avilable to Liches (http://dndwiki.com/wiki/Lich_Paragon_(3.5e_Racial_Paragon_Class)), Swordwraiths (http://dndwiki.com/wiki/Swordwraith_Paragon_(3.5e_Racial_Paragon_Class)) and Vampires (http://dndwiki.com/wiki/Vampire_Paragon_(3.5e_Racial_Paragon_Class)), ways to increase their horrific power, their connection to the realms of death, and to avoid it forever.

But, there are wispers of true lords of undeath, horrific powers that transcend the barriers of life, death and unlife. The Arch-Lich, The Nazgul, and The Blood Lord form not the mere nobillity, not the exulted royalty, but are the dark gods of the Undead.

If anyone wants to give ideas/imput/sugesstions, I'm fine with that. It's a WIP anyway, and I'm unsure how to tackle some of the Arch Liches abillities.
