I think it could bring him back as well. I just don’t think it will be the same as Richter with a respawn. For one thing it’s a different type magic. The Hearth Mother had mentioned that eldrich magic had very bad side effects. I believe it always cost a bit of yourself. Although Singh did have the mausoleum which was believed to help him resist its side effects. Personally I believe turning from a living sentient being to a living dead has a big down side. Of course the might think eventually with enough power that could be reversed. That’s if you are able to keep everything intact like the Pharaohs. With the loss of every worldly connection ones orginal self could be completely gone. We know Singh had already lost some if not a large portion of who and what he was. We know Ricther served up true death to Singh because it was stated. To start with we don’t know how much of the real Singh was actually left. The Singh we knew is for ever more gone same as Singh the Sprite has been gone for even longer. That doesn’t mean that the Evil Lich essence that had been replacing Singh’s life force can’t evolve again. Isn’t death part of the evolution into a Lich same as a Demilich. Eventually are they not supposed to transform into a bodiless magical forum? Shout, Aleron has drawn everything he has from some other source. His entire world is basically drawn from D&D or a few other sources. I totally agree this is Alerons world and he can write or do what ever he likes. Even so it seems Aleron is more of his own Dungeon Master weaving his own story. I bare no burdens, in a make believe world anything can be done. I haven’t said this is happening I have only suggested that something could happen. The talk was on lich evolution or ascension. Beating true death is the goal of becoming a Lich. Evolving no need for a body. Along the way losing ones identity and self is normally a side effect. We could see a demilich yet and it could evolve from what was Singh’s Skull.
