Wake up, wake up, raise your swords!
There's a gibbering mouther upon us.
Keep your heads, we dare not let
His confusion overcome us.
Cast your spells and shield your eyes
Lest his spittle fly and blind you.
Heed the cleric's final words:
He dies trying to remind you.

In the deepest Underdark
Live flayers of the mind,
Feeding on the living brains
Of those not of their kind.
Dungeon caves are full of slaves,
Mentally bereft.
Spells are cast, psionic blast,
And just one hope is left.

Legend tells of an ancient lich
Ensconced within his keep.
Under curse of eternal night
Where the undead never sleep.
The swinging open of his steely gates
Calls him to the fight.
Drawing near the lich spreads fear
And the bravest men take flight.
