Seems as though there's a tension between "wanting to use a real--preferably obscure--word" and "not wanting to use a word from a real culture." Good luck squaring that particular circle--I mean that genuinely: managing that while making it memorable for use in-game seems difficult.

Wonder if they could've just made some fantasy jargon from random letters, explaining "this is how the liches themselves say it in their Necril language." That would be more evocative than putting together two common words that don't sound mysterious when used together. In fact, "Soul Cages" is the name of a Sting solo album.
This just feels like bland, generic stuff. Which I guess is what happens when design is made by committee.
My liches will create their own name.

They should just call it a reliquary since that what it holds - bit or relic of the lich.
Presuming the dictionary definition of that as holding "sacred" relics doesn't bother someone else.

Not fond of soul cage either. Are they imprisoning their own soul? I suppose they're kind of keeping it from escaping to the afterlife. Soul vessel or even soul jar work better for me than soul cage.
