    I have to admit I feel very sure that the Litch didn't unlock or even think about unlocking his mental magic until Richter made that initial almost-contact from with the portal knight's memory so long ago.

    I got the same impression. My thought is that somewhere between his Ascensions and his eldritch magic he was sensitive to magic accessing information that involved him tangentially (which is some powerfully mystical shit). The more impressive thing to me however is that in gaining access to the mental magic aspect of of his eldritch power he mastered it in just over 30 days. He was alerted to it by someone digging around in someone else's past and he mastered the shit in a month.

    I don't know, timemagic so powerful that you can sense someone watching a memory 200 years in the future seems pretty powerful.

    In this timeline where he had 200 years and knew that the lord of the mist was the one making a move in the future, why did he wait until after the timecrossing event had happened to start his move?

    Let me clarify, I think that the Litch pre-ascension was made aware of thought magic from that almost contact. He mastered the eldritch version long ago. But the Litch did not know of Richter or the Mist Lord until he actually killed the knight. He did not start planning for Richter until he killed the knight.

    Nah, he was likely well traveled before becoming a lich and there are probably some undead that attack mentally. I think he would have gone the mental route regardless, especially if that could affect him as a lich.

    That’s why you keep the cows alive and drain ‘em a little here and there.

    If that's true then it would help to explain why they don't like Garlic, eating it significantly quickens the Coagulation speed of your Blood.
