Upon creation, liches are conditioned to avoid talking about themselves completely. The Sorceress sees her as an assistant rather than a servant and doesn't impose such restrictions, but that's a recent development in a 700 year story.

Is something wrong??
On the one hand, she is a talking & walking skeleton!
On the other hand, she is a walking & talking skeleton! (You know, as opposed to one who lies dead in its grave and decays to dust...)

Most liches would probably prefer the latter thing, to be honest XD

Though you're right, it is a bit of a silly question.

How do liches sound? Because I imagine something akin to more echo-y voice or perhaps simply input voice straight to your brain?

I've always imagined them with normal voices, which doesn't make much sense, but the excuse is 'magic.' Haha!

A slight echo would make sense. Or maybe a bit of a muffled sound. They definitely don't move their mouths in sync with their voices though. The way they speak is a bit like the wolf spirit in princess mononoke, the mouth opens just for emphasis, and sometimes it looks like a bad dub.

I think magic is the "excuse" in all cases here so that is okay :D

I always imagine them something like the ghost here (around 2 minutes):

But more toned down echo and not as loud voice, haha.

Oh, I'm glad this subject came up!

I've been imagining Baines' voice sounding like when you kind of force words out of the back of your throat without allowing the vocal chords to resonate. Sort of like a kid imitating a supernatural monster.

It's hard to describe this in text without it sounding like a circular explanation. >D

Gotta admit, I just tried to do it XD Yeah, I could see it.
