You swing a perfect steel spikestar at a lich qyn'arj!
  AS: +459 vs DS: +296 with AvD: +37 + d100 roll: +74 = +274
   ... and hit for 99 points of damage!
   Strike through both ears, foe is quite dead!
The lich qyn'arj spasms violently and suddenly goes still, its body turning to stone.
The very powerful look leaves a lich qyn'arj.
The white light leaves a lich qyn'arj.
The deep blue glow leaves a lich qyn'arj.
The dim aura fades from around a lich qyn'arj.
The powerful look leaves a lich qyn'arj.
