The Lich's Tomb is a node of the Azurite Mine. It can only appeared in 90+ depths in the Abyssal City biome. Despite the mod text of the node stated "Contents Unknown", the node content is actually the boss fight of Kurgal, the Blackblooded.

Upon arriving the node from the previous node, a portal will appear to led to the boss arena "Abyssal Sanctum". Despite "Abyssal Sanctum" and "The Lich's Tomb" are actually on the same area instance (as well as the starting node, the path in between, Azurite Mine Encampment and surrounding area). The boss room also has internal use area id to allow the dev to just generate the room instead of whole Azurite Mine. Lastly, when exiting the boss room, the portal states it led to "Abyssal Span", a name that shares with the upper level of the Abyssal Chamber node.

After the boss fight has been finished, the node can be revisited. However, the boss room is no longer accessible under new instance.


On top of the boss, the node itself spawns Abyss-themed monsters, despite their have separate internal use ids that not the same as those true Abyss monsters:
