Heavy Duty: 16d12
Normal Duty: 12d8
What does this refer to? Are there different versions of lich? 12d8 seems awfully low for something as powerful as a lich.
I don't know what your copy of SoD says, but mine says this:
Arcane Feedback Terminated
Negative Energy Plane
16d12 Continuous Duty
12d8 Intermittent Duty
I believe that 12d8 "intermittent duty" refers to Redcloak in some way, since it's his job to keep Xykon on full HP. Neither Harm
nor any of the Inflict
spells work like that though. Maybe it refers to Redcloak's hit dice at the time?
