He is undead if he casts the vampiric spellīs he don't get healed from it.
Good point. I missed that.

Perhaps all his attacks should include mana costs to help counter a channeling level of 2.

In the genre does a Lich typically get stronger by draining other creatures? If so, how do we include this relationship in the game if the creature is undead/incorporeal? We would need special rules unless we making the Lich a living creature similar to the Necropian Vampiress.

Hmmmm...

How about taking away the ranged attack, but giving the creature Melee +1 when he lands a Weak?

Nice.

I agree with the earlier poster about removing Psychic Immunity from Nebra. This seems inconsistent with the Channeling ability in my view.

A few corrections from this end -

1. I believe you mean Mana Transfer +1 for the attack trait.

2. "Familiar" is spelled with an 'a'.

3. "Incorporeal" has an 'r' before the 'p'.

One Final thought - does the Lich need the subtype Spirit to be consistent with the creature's archetype?

I removed psychic immunity because gray wraith is also not immune.
I thought a mighty undead like a lich, would have psychic immunity.
