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.
