I’m a thirtysomething dad and IT professional living in the Austin, TX area. I started gaming way back in the day, 1982, with the TSR space opera game Star Frontiers. Since then I've been an avid roleplayer. I went to 5 Gen Cons, was a regional Triad for the RPGA's Living Greyhawk campaign, helped start a gaming club (the FORGE) in Memphis, TN, et cetera.

I GM and play a variety of RPGs; currently Pathfinder is in heavy rotation as well as various non-D&D-based games.

The real answer to this question is "just keep playing the game, it will all become clear."

Please remember that answers to questions like this should conform to Good Subjective, Bad Subjective - not untested speculation.

It's fine to workshop the question into a more on-topic state...

comment Day-to-day life of a Lich
There is no "right answer" to this question, it's mainly a brainstorm that will elicit ideas from every kind of "undead point of view" story ever. Sorry, the SE format isn't very effective for speculative questions.

comment Did I overstep my power as DM?
Yeah, I get it, it's just that it's a slightly improved version of the "here's the same page tool" response to every single GM problem question... It's true but not specific enough.

I'd like this answer a little better if it went into the situation beyond the usual "get the group on the same page" advice.

comment Did I overstep my power as DM?
It's meant to be a little condescending to those who think that "easy mode" is the only way a RPG can be played. I'm pretty dismayed at the absolutist statements to that effect in some of the other answers.

comment What style of campaign works best for a large group?
Please clarify what game system you are using because it matters... If the answer is 4e then there's an existing Q&A that's a duplicate, rpg.stackexchange.com/questions/124/…
