Paladin Sacred Oath: Oath of the Lich-Servant[edit]

In the age of Vecna, Lich-Servants were common. They were the ones who turned to lichs to protect and guide them, in return for the paladin's fealty.

It is recommended that only Evil-aligned characters should use this oath, alongside the Oathbreaker paladin option from Dungeon Master's Guide.
