Utilizing Converted Liches

Recommended Posts

We fight the liches and we have the option to vanquish them or to convert them to our cause.  When converted, the lich has a chance to jump in and give a hand in mission, but they have the potential to be so much more.  We are gonna have to gather allies to fend off the growing sentient threat, after all.

 

To start off, converted liches will gain thralls to work with.  A rank 1 or 2 will not gain any thralls, a rank 3 or 4 will gain 1, and a rank 5 will gain 2.  This gives additional incentive to fully ranking a lich before converting.  Thralls can be killed, and act as support for the lich.

 

Next, once a lich is converted, a console in the Crimson Branch will be used to deploy the lich and any thralls they have into one of four categories. 

 

Category 1

This is the "ground" option.  They will deploy in your mission just as they do now, but with a five minute timer, and any thralls they can deploy.

 

Category 2

This is the "crew" option.  You can deploy a lich, minus their thralls as a crew member aboard your railjack when the Command Intrinsic goes live.

 

Category 3

This is the "pilot" option.  During railjack missions, your lich can deploy in a grineer fighter, with fighters piloted by his thralls.  The fighters will fly escort, and defend your railjack from fighter attacks.  Lich fighters will retreat if the lich's fighter is critically damaged, or if the mission is completed.  Liches will comment on whether they were forced to retreat or if the mission was a success.

 

Category 4

This is the "captain" option.  During railjack missions, your lich can deploy in a grineer crewship, with his thralls aboard.  The crewship will fly escort and defend your railjack from crew ships.  The lich crewship will retreat if it is critically damaged, or if the mission is completed.  Liches will comment on whether they were forced to retreat or if the mission was a success.

 

Finally, each player has a chance to spawn their lich, with the chance being low in low tier missions and higher in high tier missions.  While it would be possible to have four liches at the same time, this would not happen very often.

 

So just a weird thought I had, feel free to share any feedback.

Too bad they'll be limited to Railjack content.

They could have started by added the possibility to craft Lich Specters, maybe based on a specific type of resources dropped by Liches or based on Kuva directly, to be able to control their apparitions in all the StarChart missions.
