Acererak, the Demi-Lich
Ages past, a human magic-user/cleric of sur-
passing evil took the steps necessaly to preserve his life force
beyond the centuries he had already lived, and this creature
became the lich, Acererak. Over the scores of years which fol-
lowed, the lich dwelled with hordes of ghastly servants in the
gloomy stone halls of the very hill where the Tomb is. Eventu-
ally even the undead life force of Acererak began to wane, so
for the next 8 decades, the lich’s servants labored to create the
Tomb of Horrors. Then Acererak destroyed all of his slaves and
servitors, magically hid the entrance to his halls, and went to
his final haunt, while his soul roamed strange planes unknown
to even the wisest of sages.
