Lair of the Chicken Lich is a Fifth Edition adventure designed for three to seven 5th- to 10th-level characters and is optimized for five characters with an average party (APL) of 9. While set in the world of Omeria by default, it can easily be placed in any campaign setting with a dark forest.
Situated deep in the forest, far from the nearest town, the lair is currently infested by chickens. This unusual encounter can be placed as a side quest or at the end of a major quest. It is rumored that countless treasures of gold are stored here.
The Chicken Lich was once a powerful spellcaster named Zeek. Zeek intended to have his soul stored in a decorative golden egg. Unfortunately, the egg went missing the day of the immortality ceremony and one of Zeek's henchmen substituted a normal chicken egg. The ritual went awry and three weeks later, Zeek hatched as a newborn chick. Zeek still had his memories and spellcasting abilities but was much shorter and covered in feathers. Needless to say, Zeek immediately disintegrated the henchman who caused the mishap. The rest of Zeek's disciples and henchmen were then turned into chickens to share in Zeek's misery.
