The Path to Lichhood

The Path to Lichhood
by D.Pidge
402 pages

A dragon animated by undeath, trapped in an underground prison. A young apprentice mage, about to be expelled from his school. One carries awesome abilities but is unable to utilize them. Another has stagnated and can't see a way to improve. Two beings who should have never interacted with each other.

What happens when, against all odds, the two inexplicably meet and forge a contract?
The ancient beast will give the mortal a piece of its power, so that he may walk the path to lichhood. In exchange, the mage-turned-necromancer would build a kingdom of undeath and prepare the world for the dragon's return.

Now the new necromancer must discover how to use these dark powers. He will test their limits and run experiments to find their potential. He will create undead that would follow his every command. And as he walks this path, he will try to discover the true meaning behind humanity and undeath alike.

Long has Mika, an otherwise devout princess of the Deep, dreamed of the wonders of the surface. Of endless oceans of trees, feathered carnivores and magical lightning. But the Overworld is a dangerous place, populated by warlike peoples who dwarf her already diminutive species in both size and brutality. To cross the boundary into that world is forbidden to all but a very few…and most certainly to her, a weak Singer in possession of a vital treasure. But when the horrors of the surface find their way below, Mika must choose: embrace the brutal, or face a fate worse than death.

~First place winner of the Royal Road Community Magazine Contest, summer 2022~

*Note: The dungeon side of the narrative will build slowly over time and only really kick off at the beginning of the second arc*

This story features a bisexual non-human MC and includes unconventional, probably kind of weird versions of high fantasy species like elves, orcs, and goblins. It’s also got elements of manapunk and flintlock fantasy, varied modes of gender expression, polyamory, multiple different sexualities but no explicit sex, grotesque lovecraftian body-horror abominations, fantastical versions of prehistoric animals and some very gratuitous hand-holding.

[You are not the hero. You are the System that will enable him.]

Parker wakes up with the ability to control magic, a conspicuous lack of a body, and a whole lot of blue boxes. After being informed that a new hero--[Godkiller] Jerome Smith--is set on a path to fight the opposing System's Eternal King, Parker is forced to attach to the hero's body as his brand new System.

With status screens being the only way to communicate as they navigate this perplexing Continent, Parker and Jerome will have to learn to level, progress, and ultimately triumph.

Now, if only Parker can get Jerome to stop treating this like a video game...

A certain trickster spirit was fond of saying, 'me and my big fat mouth'. That could be Jasper Stone's motto. There's never been a situation in his life he didn't make worse by opening his mouth, because when he does, ridiculous amounts of trash-talk and overconfidence just spills out. He's never managed to do anything with his wits -- but when the God of Fools tosses him into another world for amusement's sake, he'll need to put them to use. Because there are bandits, dragons, and cultists out there -- none of whom appreciate Jasper's particular gift for insults.

--Cover by the inimitable Vitaly S Alexius.
