Re: Best D&D original monsters out there?
The Swiss pronunciation of corpse is "liich", which is more or less pronounced "leech", with a Scottish "ch" as in "loch". Given how Swiss German missed a vowel shift, I'm assuming its the older German form, too.
That said, I can't htink of any Germanic Liches, only Koschei.
As for Warforged.. I'm currently using one in a game set in our world. His backstory was a bit changed around, but he started out as a bronze automaton descended from Talos of Greek mythology.

the winds are wild, the lacre deep.
The snarling stones arise from sleep.
The Fifth's tales may exalt the suns,
but never hope to halt what comes.
