I have mixed feelings about posting this page. I've been excited for this reveal for a while, though it does spoiler an important twist in Silk and Sword. We'd hoped to be a bit more ahead in that story by this point, unfortunately it just didn't work out that way.

I suppose that also answers what I asked about Liches retaining emotions and everything in a very good state. Without magic blood you mostly lose your "alive" form but you still get the effects. If I read the exact middle part correctly.

Yeah, pretty much! You could say liches are a bit like ghosts possessing their own bodies.

I was inspired by some lyrics from Pirates of the Caribbean:
"The King and his men stole the queen from her bed
and bound her in her bones"

Spoilers or not, it's a great composition! :D And reaching a page release that you've been waiting for... we webcomic-ers know how that feels. So hooray for you! Thumb up.

Thanks! :D I really enjoy drawing pages that are a bit different.

We know from Baines that a liche can see, hear, and speak. It's not clear whether they have any tactile sensation.

What little pleasure they glean from their existence would have to involve those first three abilities.

I think the part about being a liche that I would find most difficult to bear would be not sleeping.

Yeah, there's very little enjoyment to be had by liches. And unfortunately, few people care. They can feel, though I'm not sure to what extent. They don't feel pain though, or if they do, only a tiny fraction of what living people can.
