Taros the Mad (Lich Wizard D&D 3.5 CR 19)

Taros has a yearning to understand how sentient life works and how to manipulate and control life and the undead. He spends most of his time on his experiments, this has created some monstrous life forms as well as a large collection of undead. Most of his creations he has bent to his will, some however he has not been able to control, these have wrought terror and destruction on the local populace.

Taoros has built a tower in the center of the “Forrest of the Damned” named by the locals who now, dare not venture  near it.  His laboratory is  in the basement though he does most of his experiments outside where he has several large cages sealed with magical protections and wards, here he keeps his latest creations until they have succumbed to his will.

The screams of the Damned can often be heard coming from within the forest.
