Liches are created from units using the Lichdom spell. There are a few advantages to casting Lichdom on an Archmage, the most noticable of which is that it frees up another Archmage slot (since civilizations are limited to 3). Liches also gain the Combat I and Extension I promotions for free. They will become undead, making them more vulnerable to certain spells such as Destroy Undead, but immune to effects like Charm Person and Disease. This also means that they will gain the Strong promotion from the Tower of Necromancy, but only if it has already been built when they cast their spell. So if you don't need your liches in a hurry, consider building the tower first.
