Last Friday, my second Monster Makeover article, the Demilich, was published on D&D Insider. This was a particularly difficult monster to make over, given the importance of the soul drain and the need to make it scary but not too deadly. The article has a couple of options available to suit most groups and describes the specific design considerations along with the stat block, some lair ideas, and some story seeds.
If you're looking for good demilich miniatures, consider the Bone Naga, Flameskull, Lurking Wraith, or the Blazing Skeleton miniatures included in the Ravenloft board game. All are available from Troll and Toad, an official Sly Flourish sponsor.
