It is well known among D&D players that liches are generally evil power-hungry mages which tried to cheat death by turning themselves into undead. The majority of these beings are evil.
But not all of them are. At least in the Forgotten Realms campaign setting, a very small number of liches are of good alignment. They either sought undeath or had it forced upon them to serve a noble cause, protect a loved being or place, or to pursue a lofty goal.
Aside from the alignment, there is little difference between good liches and regular liches. They have much the same abilities and characteristics, although a few have additional abilities.
Good liches are, of course, any alignment of good.
