What can I do with a lich phylactery (with a lich inside)?

So we have defeated a lich, and found its phylactery. What are the fun things that we can do with its phylactery (trapped the lich’s soul inside, at least for a few days I think.)? Say, can we sell a lich’s soul to some devil?

How can I make this homebrew Elder Aboleth the CR rating I want it to be?

A party I’m running for are going up against an aboleth as a late-game "boss" (but not the "final boss"). They are currently Tier 4, level 17 to be precise, so a basic CR 10 aboleth is not going to stand up against them and will not be able to provide the climax I’m hoping […]

Acceptable background by level

I’ve used Dex checks to accomodate overcoming this, but I’m curious if […]
