Descent into Darkness (mainline, you know this one) and Birth of a Lich (add-on) are the most known ones. Some necromancy is also done in add-ons like Invasion from the Unknown (rather about elves allied with a powerful lich killing even worse stuff) or Legend of the Invincibles. I recommend trying Invasion from the Unknown, though it is not exactly about a guy who becomes a necro.

I don't know if this one is still kicking around but the Dark Hordes works on that theme (it used to be mainline but suffered from bugs and imcomplteness).

Also, if you are on 1.11.10+ you could take a look at "secrets of the ancients", a new campaign by beetlenaut. It is not completed, but the first 6 scenario's are playable.

I remembered now that For Power is also about a girl who became undead (however, she was rather forced to do so) and started slowly breaking bad (after like 50 scenarios, she is already quite bad at times). Legend of the Invincibles is also about a guy and his girlfriend becoming liches, but that isn't the main point of the camaign (rather using that power against evil).

Well, in For Power there are only a few opportunities to recruit undead so far as the main character wants to avoid it. Yes, she and some heroes become a kind of liches during the campaign but your recruit list is composed of humans (sometimes loyalists sometines outlaws) most of time. But accordining to my plans, you would get to recruit undead in a later chapter (if I ever get to write it). For now, you rather fight against undead here.

Nope, just the old friend Mal Keshar was there most of the time, became an even stronger master of powers of darkness, talked like a badass and allowed you to recruit undead. But it's really awesome, definitely worth playing.

You need to find the book. Look around the map for the most obvious hiding place. Then move Gwiti there.

You'll need to downgrade to 1.8 as I haven't been able to find it on the current servers, but Danse Macabre is easily one of the best Undead campaigns I've ever played. It was badly balanced last time I played it though, with difficulty spiking from trivial to insane in the span of one or two scenarios. But its story is one of the best and Zombies have never been more interesting. It's not really about a Lich though, it's really about sentient Zombies more than other kinds of Undead, so not sure if it fits your criteria after all.
Apart from that, Descent Into Darkness is also pretty good if you haven't played it yet.

Ghostly calls is a very good campaign.

My new campaign, Secrets of the Ancients, is exactly like what you said. It's only on the new server though, so you would have to switch to 1.11 if you haven't yet.

The Founding of Borstep,
