    A nasty customer, that one. The demon he wrestled my have been Kronos or another ancient Immortal with dellusions of demonhood.
    Monk knew him from way back and invited him over at the Hellfire Club in Mnhattan during the club's decade in America. He offered him a position as a Black King, but that was a mistake. An animal with two heads cannot live, and Kingsley the upstart understood it. He tried to get the upper hand in Monk's game and lost his head.

    • Here's the next chapter of the SIS/Hellfire Club Saga:

      953 - At the urging of Richeard, King Edgar grants legal autonomy to the Danelaw, stalemating Ailef and Elfrida, who were attempting to ferment rebellion in the region. Ailef and Elfrida once again retreat to Denmark.

      973 - Richeard and Alfgar sail with Edgar to Chester, where he receives homage from the rulers of Alba, Strathclyde, Wales and the Kingdom of the Isles.

      975 - 8 July. King Edgar dies and is succeeded by his 12-year-old son Edward. To alleviate suspicions among Edward's court about the two never-ageing advisers, Richeard and Alfgar fake their deaths and leave Winchester. Richeard determines to go underground for a generation but to watch over the Royal court from afar (this, however, would not last long, as Ailef's activities would force Richeard back into the political game again).

      978 - 18 March. King Edward is murdered by the servants of his stepmother Queen Aelfthryth at Corfe Castle, and succeeded by his stepbrother Aethelred the Unready. Richeard suspects the involvement of Ailef, who may have acted through the Queen, as he had fostered a friendship with her before he fled the country, but Richeard cannot prove it since Ailef and Elfrida are still supposedly in Denmark.

      980 - Vikings begin a new wave of raids on England, orchestrated by Ailef.

      981 - Viking raids on Dorset, Devon, and Cornwall begin. Elfrida appears at this time in command of a longship and dubbed by her crew "Elfrida the Black Wolf" because of her black furs and long mane of black hair. She becomes notorious for her merciless attacks on English coastal settlements.

      988 - Richeard and Alfgar return to Canterbury following the death of their friend Dunstan, Archbishop of Canterbury.

      991 - After Aethelred signs a treaty with Duke Richard I of Normandy agreeing not to aid each others enemies, a suspicious Richeard sends Alfgar to Normandy to spy on the duke.
      Elfrida leads a Norse invasion force that sacks Ipswich, and is then at the Battle of Maldon, where the Danes defeat an English army. Elfrida slays Byrhtnoth, Ealdorman of Essex, leader of the English army.
      Against the advice of Richeard, Aethelred pays the first Danegeld (of £10,000) to the Danes in return for their leaving England.

      TO BE CONTINUED

      Could you post the active and inactive Immortals of West Africa please

        Yes! I like this. The White King offers an old "friend" the position of Black King, but should have known kings don't share power. Even the Spartans found that out when their dual kings always used to vie for power and influence over each other. Monk killed the Black King, how long before Evangeline will have to move against the White Queen?

        • Evangeline is in London, Messalina in New-York. I haven't figured it out yet.

          Comment


          • Yeah, no worries Gardner, i was just speculating. Unless Messalina makes overt moves toward displacing Evangeline, then the Black Queen probably won't perceive the White Queen as a threat. Kingsley directly challenged Aldrich's position and lost his head.

            The Saga of the SIS and the Hellfire Club continues:

            993 - Elfrida leads a Danish raid on Northumbria, destroying the original fortifications at Bamburgh Castle.

            994 - Norse and Danish armies ravage the south-east, but fail to capture London. Richeard reaches out to the Norwegian faction and offers them a deal, as a result Olaf II of Norway is baptised at Andover and swears not to return to England. This setback angers Elfrida, who suspects Richeard's involvement.

            998 - Danes raid the southern and western coasts. Elfrida's attacks have become ever more savage, frightening even the warriors sailing with her. Her ship the "Black Queen", now includes a special cadre of female warriors, or shield maidens, fiercely loyal to Elfrida, who she calls her "Valkyries".

            999 - The Danes, including Elfrida and her Valkyries, raid Kent, attacking Rochester.

            1001 - First Battle of Alton: a Viking fleet, led by Elfrida, arrives off the Sussex coast and the Danes clash with a united Hampshire army. Despite the Vikings losing more men, they win the field and advance further west, while the Anglo-Saxons retreat to Winchester, where Richeard and Alfgar receive word of the defeat and Elfrida's part in it.
            Anticipating Elfrida's next target, Richeard sends Alfgar to Devon. While the Vikings laid siege to Exeter, Alfgar slips into the village of Pinhoe disguised as a priest. Due to Exeter's strong fortifications, Elfrida ordered her troops to pillage nearby villages, including Pinhoe. Alfgar organised the men of Devon and Somerset to resist the invasion and the battle was hard, the defenders nearly used up all their ammunition. Alfgar sneaked through the Danish lines and ran to Exeter to get arrows and arms. He successfully returned to the defending Saxons and supplied them with the weapons. But the weapons were not enough to defeat the Vikings. Elfrida's Valkyries led the infiltration of Pinhoe and burned it to the ground. Elfrida confronted and challenged Alfgar. This time, the combatants were more evenly matched and the battle hard fought. Still, Alfgar was able to defeat Elfrida and, more wary of her tricks, was about to take her head until her shield maidens came to her rescue. Outnumbered and wounded, Alfgar was forced to retreat and fled back to Winchester.

            Inconclusive fight between Alfgar of Winchester and Elfrida of York, aka Evangeline Black, 1001

            TO BE CONTINUED.

            • Good stories there, Apollo. About those Valkyries, is there any chance they could have been the Immortal Valkyries I referred to earlier on ? I always thought my little group of shiledmaidens were an independent teams unless they threw their lot with Elfrida...

              I need you to do a research for me : the name of the French female disciple of Bethany Clarke please. Unless you retconned her out of existence from one of my deletions requests lol

                No, my friend, not Immortal, as a character trait i'm introducing to Elfrida is that she doesn't trust other female Immortals, she's paranoid about them usurping her position with Ailef. She doesn't even trust the female members of the Hellfire Club! Lol
                The Valkyries are a forerunner of what would become Evangeline's personal bodyguard of mortal female assassins she personally trains.
                I'll find that student of Bethany Clarke for you.

                • I like that paranoid trait of character about Evangeline and how you play with the ideas I gave you :-)
                  Different Valkyries, then. Tough I wonder how Elfrida would have felt about her guard's Immortal counterparts.

                  Cna you please post a list of all West African Immortals on your files ? I am looking for ten of them I deleted i nthe last two years, I cannot remember their names.

                    Because my chronicles are still in a bit of a mess at the moment (5 years of neglect does that!), i'll most likely post all the African Immortals I've got, and you can see if any of them are the ones you deleted, is that okay?

                    Meantime, any chance you can post the chronicles for the active and inactive Immortals of Central and Eastern Asia?

                      Found and mentored bty Guard Guedj

                      In 1351, when Tamerlane surged down Afganistan, a young man helped repelling the invaders and was killed for it. When he awoke, immortal, he was taken in by Guardi Guedji, the immortal known as "ancestor-to-all" because of his great age that was legendary in Afganistan. With help from his mentor, Yalvatch became one of the greatest champions of the Game and a skilled defensor of his people. If he became the man he is now, it is also thanks to Hazeem Al Bachrim and Carter Wellan who opened his mind to the outside world, be it the middlewest of the western countries. Yalvatch is now a freedom fighter in the Nothern Alliance, he has managed to expel the accursed Talibans from our country by uniting various Afghan groups fighting eachothers, with no small help from the American army, as he did against the Iranian three hundred years ago and during the Anglo-Afghan wars of the 18° century.

                      What can be worse for a parent than lose one's child ? Especially when that child is barely six months old. Sudden Infant Syndrom is what killed little Chan, Dalai's baby. Dalai Bayamba wanted to be a mother so much, a thing that the nature of immortality forbade her, cursing her with a barrne womb. So she set on the procedures for adoption and within two years she had her baby. But little Chan died. And Dalai is alone again, crying over her loss and cursing her immortality, cursing her barren womb.

                      Amyr Beg trained Immortals in the ways of Immortality for nearly two thousand years before retiring during the years of WWII, he now trains falcons for the hunt, a more pacifical way to live with mother nature without having to teach others of his kind how to kill other Immortals. I don’t know where this change of heart comes from but this is an Immortal who renounced all violence and now thrives on peacful living.

                      Sir Mark Aurel Stein, the archeologist, scholar, explorer and geographer; in 1916 he began expeditions in the Gobi desert and along the Silk Route where it is suspected he met his first death. Kiem Sun's Watcher, at this time, reported that his assignment had been tutoring a foreign, white explorer from England. Aurel Stein never liked the evolution of modern society : too much noise, too much pollution, women taking too much their rights for granted, at least in Occidental society. He is a man like a hammer --- or rather an excavating trowel. He has no interest at all, so far as anyone can tell, in sex, power, fame, luxury or excitement; money interests him only so far as the lack of it threatens his freedom of action.
                      He formed some devoted friendships when young, but seems to have lost the power of attachment after reaching the age of thirty. In modern days, Stein led an archeological expedition in Afghanistan where he hoped to find a lead to some mysterious city that might have existed two hundred miles north of Khabul in ancient times.
                      In the post-WWII world, Aurel Stein was observed in conversation with Ursula Katz, immortal woman constantly on the move. They ran across each other in Ulan Bator and seemed to have some previous connection (though unobserved by the Watchers). Perhaps they met through Kiem Sun? Anyway, Katz scoffed at Aurel's reactionnary view of the world, and suggested he should broaden his horizons and start getting a life, for a change.
                      Aurel asked her how she was doing after the loss of her family in Buchenwald (?!!), Ursula answered that wiping the remnant of the ODESSA out did her a world of good.
                      Nothing more is reported of this brief and tantalizing conversation, which opens several questions: did Katz loose students of her immortal line to the Nazis, and would careful research discover her presence as an underground fighter against the Eternal Reich . . . ?

                        Fu Kang-ho keeps ouit of the Game, though he has been a very good one in the first centuries of his life. A Beijing businessman, he plays games on the board of trustees, his sharpest weapon is his tongue and his knoack at using Laws as help in the world of banking and financing. The remnants of the People’s Protectorate put pressure on him to recruit him in their covenant, a good position for him they said, with links to government officials, but Fu doesn’t care. He warned them to stay clear from his because he may be retired from the Game, but his Quing dynasty saber is still sharp and deadly in his hand.
                        Not a good idea to antagonize a group like that !

                        Hsien Tsiang has had many names, spelt in in different fashions on various translations and elsewhere. He lived in China in the seventh century, was born and raised a Confucian, but converted to Buddhism and became a celebrated Buddhist scholar at an early age. His adventures would form the inspiration for books and plays, prints and paintings, and (much, much later) even movies.
                        After his first death and re-awakening, Hsien became convinced that Buddha himself had given to him a second chance at life, so that he could spread his word in China. And so Hsien-tsang began imparting the philosophy of Buddha upon fellow immortals across the whole Asian continent. In 675, he met up with immortal Xue Fang. It has been theorised Xue Fang wasn't the daughter of a general, as previously recorded, but rather an ancient immortal who was quite a firebrand during the seventh century.
                        Hsien became a student of Confucianism under the tutelage of Lu Dongbin and with him formed the Eight Immortals travelling group of Chinese myth.

                        Our hearty congratulations go to the Eastern Asia Research team for their cross-referencing work that allowed to find the current whereabouts and final fates of the elusive Eight Immortals of Chinese mythology.
                        We always suspected Immortal Maiden was one of the Eight Immortals.

                        Good work !

                          First death : Killed by Matsuhiro Kanagawa to

                          Feuding against Kanagawa’s Yakuzas, labelled a
                          traitor

                          A violent character with uncompromising morals, placing the Law before everything, possibly to atone for the countless cimes he comitted in his “youth” : Kobayashi killed Immortal holy men from Japan on orders from Matsuhiro Kanagawa who sought to destroy Master Nakano Yodarushi and thus sent his disciple after any Immortal shrine keepr he could find, helped by hired muscle who would forcefully take the unfortunate Immortal out of Holy Grounds where Kobayashi would execute him or her. So far, four that we know of were murdered, all from different religions in Japan, including a Christian priest, two shintoist monks and a zen buddhist who studied under Nichiren in the 13th century. All innocent men, none of them Nakano Yodarushi.

                          Kobayashi got a change of heart after his encounter with a “Holy Man” in 1952, whose Quickening altered his personality and changed a bandit into a champion of the Law. The identity of the Holy Man isn’t known to us but clues point us to Master Nakano Yodarushi, missing since the 17th century and whose illusion-casting powers match the Holy Man’s : apparently an Immortal able to blend so much with his environment that it looked like magic. Who knows. Kobayash, a master hunter, found him anyway and killed him. The Q. Kobayashi received is called a “Light Quickening’, contrary to a Dark Quickening that changes a good man into an evil Immortal, the Light one does the opposite. Kobayashi has been at war with his teacher Kanagawa ever since, before the latter’s death in 2006.The Law hasn’t had a champion like him since the days when Mako was taming the wild west in the 19th century or the state of Texas in the 1990’s.

                          From the Tribunal :
                          Watcher Research, Japan

                          Akira Kawasai was a sorcerer from the Island of Honshû and an immortal, famous for serving Emperor Jimmu, legendary founder of Japan. Already a seasoned immortal, he married a Westerner immortal known as "the white witch" who might have well been a past identity of Kellistra, since Ijiro and Shun Kawasai were identified as foster children of hers. Since there weren't many Kawasai immortals recorded living in Japan, we are positive that Ijiro and Shun were raised as warriors by both the White Witch and Akira.
                          Akira fell to the sword of Kellistra, for unknown reasons, before she leaft the Island and wandered all around Japan with her sons before disappearing by the turn of the century.
                          Nothing else is knows about the White Witch, she was an elusive immortal, difficult to keep tracks of, not a drawing is left of her. The same apply to Akira, exept for an undecipherable coded journal. The origins of Ijiro and Shun Kawasai remains a mystery as well as the lives they led in the last thousand years.

                          Dubbed ‘Deathmask’, little Flower of Carnage aka Kyala was a brillant and crafty assassin who murdered her way across the armies of Manchuria during the Russo-Japanese war and also killed Russian officers and soldiers, spreading tales of terror of an unkillable ghost who wreaked havoc wherever she went. Her motives for killing aren’t known to us but we suspect her to simply be a psychopathic immortal manipulated by Matsuhiro Kanagawa, using her thrillseeking personality to create chaos in this beginnig of the 20th century.
                          Kyala disappeared in 1905, but for four hundred years she was the nemesis of the ennemies of Japan.

                          Another signing in Tokyo, the fourth in one week. Izumi is one of the most proficient and successful manga illustrators on the market. Little do her editor and her public know that the adventures depicted in her stories - those of a woman disguising herself as an immortal samurai - are actually hes, according to what we picked from her convesations with other immortals in Switzerland and Japan in the last five years. She has be seeing Ursula Katz - aka Kellistra - and the Kawasai brothers on four separate occasions, alluding to the amazing adventures she has lived in the past under the identities of Hua Mulan in ancient China and Sakura Haruno in Medieval Japan.
                          Truly an intriguing person, looking like a mere slip of a girl to whom no Watcher would give more than one century of existence. However, the descriptions of Huan and Sakura tend to match her features : to young women, looking frail but hiding a terrifying energy and deathly skills with the sword. A worthy student of Kellistra !

                          28 January 2011

                          Words in Watcher Circles of Japan is that Kiem Sun has found the recipe for the Kwanlo root, with which is is building an army of invicible mortals, as help in the Game. For the past five weeks, reports have been flowing in that immortals from all corners of Japan have been assaulted by packs of men dressed in fancy garbs, demonstrating super-human strenght : Tomonaga Ijiro, his student Kondo Tatsumi, Kenshiro Tatsuya, Izumi Sakaki, the Kisugi sisters, Jiro Eto and Genjo Ito
                          Kenshiro Tatsuya and Izumi Sakaki dispatched their attackers like tornadoes, while the Kisugi sisters managed to escape thanks to their evading skills. Ijiro, Tatsumi, Jiro and Ito where kidnapped and were nowhere to be found.
                          Kiem Sun has also been reported travelling a lot since the kidnapping and was present in each city where an immortal was attacked. It is to fear the seven aforementioned immortals were assaulted on orders from by Kiem Sun, a childlike immortal hidig his cowardice, first behind walls, and now behind an army of supermen.

                          Date : 7 February 2011

                          To be added to the Chronicle of Kiem Sun

                          After preliminary investigations and confirmations, I sady report the deaths of : Tomonaga Ijiro, Kondo Tatsumi, Jiro Eto, Genjo Ito. Their decapitated remains have been found in secluded places, all were bound and gagged before they lost their heads. The likely guilty part is Kiem Sun who had decided to leave a mark on the Immortal world by becoming a headhunter after eight hundred years of living on Holy Grounds.
                          Their deaths, is not only tragic because they were ambushed and murdered by a coward, but also those immortals represented different walks of life in Japan culture : Jiro Eto was a former Yamabushi and close associate to Hideo Tanaka, as was Genjo Ito, Tanaka's student.Ijiro was a 'Hibakusha', a survivor of 1945 Hiroshima boombing; his student a cyberspacer who had centuries of life ahead of him. With those immortals dead - especially the latter two - Tanaka is up for a revenge-driven quest for Kiem Sun and his batallion of supermen.
                          We shall see who prevails : the noble warrior, or the coward hiding behind and army of mortals.

She thought he was a nice man to relate to, a connoisseur of men, women, fine wines, understanding of her dual nature. And once he got what he wanted from her, he asked for more: her Quickening. Poor Mitsunori was sorely disappointed but she fought like a little devil, well-taught by Keiko Watanabe. When the two women reunited in Tokyo, Mitsunori told her story to Keiko who wasn’t surprised her student survived : didn’t she teach her to stand ahead of nasty surprises like George Chapman ? Mitsunori was more trusting in that time, but she was prepared. She is less trusting now and even more prepared, ready to face the coming Gathering a few years from now.

                          Bug Tatsuya embodies the spirit of bosozoku. The hair, the attitude, the motorcycle. A rebel at heart, he never should fit in. He even uses a military sabre of his homeland instead of the Japanese katana that the majority of Immortal countrymen and women use. He travels around Japan, causing trouble wherever he goes. Speeding through traffic, setting fires and getting in fights. He better watch out though. Word is yakuza boss, Matsuhiro Kanagawa, is out for his head after Bug torched a restaurant that was a front for a betting parlor he owned. Bug better watch out, or sharpen his sword skills. I'd put my bets on the former samurai anyday.

                          Four centuries of immortality have turned the frightened mouse murdered by her husband into a splendid player of the Game and a brillant competitor in sports like kickboxing, but also chess and mah-jong; brains and muscles, a craft combination of the two have turned the metre slip of a girl from 14th century Japan into a well-adjusted woman. And we all know how women need to be well-adjusted in Japan. Competition is extreme, puts a lot of stress, and women must fight twice harder than men to get at the top. Be it in sports or in business. Or in the Game.

                          Hokusai used to say “if I could live one year more I would become a better painter”. He lived beyond his natural death and found out his mortality was what gave him his talent, his genius for painting. Now he contends himself as living off welfare and from selling a painting from time to time, his genius now gone, vanished with time. Time became his wors ennemy when he belived it would be his best ally, but running agaisnt time gave him the incentive to paint beautifully and now his talent is gone.

                          In 1884, Zai Jie invited me to diggings in Japan, swearing we'd find treasures, I retorted I wasn't interested in a thousand years old garage inventory. But well, I needed the distraction and it beat fighting off old Samurai or getting involved with murderous geishas (look into Japan chronicles for a good read !). Note : William Adams wasn't me, just an European lost in translation and who made the most of the geishas while he could and lost the head completely to one of the local Immortal women. Speaking of the local, I had a good suprise with Zai Jie : Ayako Kitoagi, one of the most beautiful women to grace Japan alive and healthy after a 15,000 years sleep. The poor woman though she had gone to heaven (or hell) and was supposed to discover she was going to live again and pull through with no small help from smitten Zai Jie and modest old me, Methos the charmer.
                          It took time and training but Kitoagi did very well, though she'd rather hide and busy herself with her little business in Yayoi, she write that it reminds her of her youth. She doesn't want to pick fights, but comes the time of the Gathering, she will have to make her choice : kill or be killed. Personally, I wish she'd train in earnest after all the trouble Zai and I went though to educated her in the customs of the 19th century.

                          Kondo lived in his parent's basement surrounded by computers and state-of-the art technology, sealed away from reality and living only in cyberspace. Then his parents went away for one week holiday during wich Kondo forgot to feed, drink and clean himself. And that's how he died. From self-exhaustion. Burnout. In 2008 Kondo has progrssed: from a cyber-obsessed computer geek, he turned into a fine student under Ijiro's guidance, learning to appreciate the company of his fellow men and to properly use a sword.

                          (trad. « survivor of the bomb »)
                          Born : 1910, Hiroshima Japan
                          First death : 1945, Served poisoned herbal tea by
                          Ota Hideki to avoid pain from radiation poisoning
                          First teacher : Ota Hideki (aka Hokusai)
                          Known associates : Kondo Tatsumi

                          First recorded sighting : 1950. Outskirts of
                          Hiroshima. Found by Ota Hideki

                          From the Records of the Tribunal :

                          In Japan, after the bombs struck Hiroshima and Nagasaki, the Hibakushas were treated with sympathy and sorrow in the middle of the horror that reverberating across the entire archipelago. Yet, as human beings they were little more than social outcasts, never allowed in any family for marriage and viewed with contempts, seen as unclean genetic stock.
                          After losing his sight watching the flash of Hiroshima, Tomonaga felt himself dying from slow radiation poisoning and with nothing to love settledin Hokkaido, where he hoped to find the strenght to put an end to his life. Instead of finding deadth, he found hope in the person of ancient calligrapher and painter Ota Hideki (aka Hokusai), four hundred years old immortals who gave him a herbal tea that alowed him a quick, painless death. When Tomonage awoke, he was a blind immortal with a short life ahead of him. Ideki trained him in the use of the katana and on how to use his smell and hearing to locate himself in space and his seventh sense o defend himself in the Game.
                          It took him five years of training with Hideki to master his remaining senses, five more to become a master of the Game. By the end of the 1960's, Japan had a new player in the Imortal Game, able to make a difference in the battle of good vs evil.

                            The South Korean army has finally accepted women among its ranks, and Woo Bok-soon seized the opportunity to join the soldier women who enlisted in tis ranks. Once a war nurse, Woo soldiered her way across countless campaigns in 1000 years, against Japan, North Korea, the United States, fought others of her kind and took the time to marry and raise families across the enrtire Korean country. Ever since Korea halved in two, she hoped to reunited with her lost relatives in North Korea, but he chances are limited.

                            The Jongmyo Shrine was added to the UNESCO World Heritage Site list in 1995 and is located in Seoul. The shrine is dedicated to the spirits of the ancestors of the royal family of the Joseon Dynasty. It is heavily influenced by Korean Confucian tradition. An elaborate performance of ancient court music (with accompanying dance) known as Jongmyo jeryeak is performed there each year. When it was built in 1394 it was to be one of the longest buildings in Asia. There are 19 memorial tablets of kings and 30 of their queens, placed in 19 chambers. The shrine was burnt to the ground during the Imjin wars with Hyech’o thought lost, possibly killed by an immortal, but rebuilt in 1608 by Hyech’o himself.
                            His recent death is a true loss to the immortal world.

                                  Bloody hell! Lol
                                  And here's me still sorting through the chronicles of the 2000-odd i have and hoping i haven't lost any! Which is why i'm grateful for you posting all the active and inactive Immortals of the present day, so at least I've got a place to organise from. Much appreciated.

                                  As promised the next SIS/Hellfire Club instalment:

                                  1002 - St Brice's Day Massacre. Fearing how much influence Ailef still wields among the Vikings still in England and the threat he poses, suspecting many of them may be aiding Elfrida's raids, Richeard convinces King Aethelred to order the deaths of all leading Danes in England. Among those killed is Gunhilde, the sister of King Sweyn I of Denmark.

                                  1003 - Sweyn Forkbeard, King of Denmark, invades England in retaliation for the St Brice's Day Massacre. At his side is Ailef, and among his leading commanders is Elfrida and her Valkyries.

                                  1004 - Elfrida leads raids in Devon and East Anglia.

                                  1006 - Elfrida raids south eastern England from the Isle of Wight to Reading and spends the winter at Wallingford with Ailef. Richeard contemplates sending Alfgar to Wallingford to kill Elfrida, but recognises it would be a suicide mission and abandons the idea. By this time, Richeard has come to the realisation that Ailef outsmarted him by tricking Richeard into orchestrating the St Brice's Day Massacre so Ailef could invade England with the Danes at a distinct advantage. He vows he will never be tricked that way again.

                                  1009 - Vikings led by Elfrida occupy Sandwich, Kent, attack London, and burn Oxford.

                                  1011 - 29 Sept. Elfrida and the Danes capture Canterbury after a siege, taking Aelfheah, Archbishop of Canterbury, as a prisoner.

                                  1012 - 19 Apr. Ailef has Aelfheah of Canterbury executed at Greenwich to prevent him being rescued by Richeard and Alfgar.

                                  1013 - July. Sweyn Forkbeard, King of Denmark, is proclaimed as King within the Danelaw.
                                  25 Dec. Sweyn, with Ailef and Elfrida by his side, is proclaimed King of all England in London. Ailef orders the capture of Richeard and Alfgar, but they escape and flee to Normandy with Aethelred.

                                  TO BE CONTINUED.

                                  Cheers

                                    The horrors of gang rape and of the war in Congo reminds Tantini Kahindu of the wildlife in Africa : untamed, savage, destrying all beauti and innocence in this world. Six years after being ravaged by Hutu soldiers, her village destroyed for futile reasons, Tantini has found a new home in the Augustine convent maintained by immortal Beatriz Kimpa Vita. She studies, trains with the sword, learns about the vast world outside so that when she feels ready, she can leave Congo for good and make a new life for herself, hoping to keepr her nightmares away forever. This is agood person, a young woman scared and scarred but who, under proper guidance, will find her way on the Immortals scene and maybe in the Game.

                                            I don't work with Apollo2 anymore really. I still see him, but he has other things going on in his life these days. He lost interest when the old site went away and hasn't really got the interest back. I'm doing this myself now.
                                            I'll get those Latin American names for you and i will post those African names once I've got all the old chronicles sorted out.

                                            In the meantime, here's the next chapter in the ongoing Richeard/Ailef saga:

                                            1014 - 3 Feb. Richeard and Alfgar set in motion a plan to restore Aethelred to the throne. Richeard reaches out to loyalists in London and sends an agent, a trained assassin, who infiltrates the Royal court and poisons Sweyn Forkbeard. He dies at Gainsborough, Lincolnshire. His son, Cnut, is proclaimed King of England by the Vikings while Ailef suspects the hand of his former brother-in-arms.
                                            Mar. Aethelred returns to reclaim his throne at the invitation of English nobles, allies of Richeard and Alfgar. At the same time, thanks to Richeard's influence, Olaf II Haraldsson of Norway attacks London in support of Aethelred.
                                            Ailef and Elfrida urge Cnut to leave England and return to Denmark to enforce his rule there.
                                            Among the victims of Olaf of Norway's attack on London is a local street thug and cutpurse named Saegar Lightfingers, cut down by a Viking sword and found wandering the streets by Ailef, who takes him with him back to Denmark. Saegar will in time abandon his birth name for that of his Hellfire Club name Sampson Brass.

                                            To add:

                                            SAMPSON BRASS

                                            Known aliases: Saegar Lightfingers (birth name)

                                            Born: 985, London, Kingdom of England
                                            First death: 1014, killed during King Olaf II Haraldsson of
                                            Norway's attack on London
                                            First teacher: Ailef of Deira, aka Aldrich Monk

                                            1015 - By this time, Richeard and Alfgar have come to the conclusion that Aethelred is an unsuitable king. This is further proven when Sigeferth and Morcar, chief thegns of the Five Boroughs of the Danelaw, come to an assembly in Oxford where they are murdered by Eadric Streona, Aethelred's enforcer whom Richeard suspects is an agent of Ailef, owing to his support of the invading Danes. Richeard and Alfgar throw their support to Edmund Ironside, Aethelred's son, who has revolted against his father and established himself in the Danelaw.
                                            Aug. Cnut launches an invasion of England with Ailef and Elfrida at his side, along with Ailef's protégé-in-training Saegar.

                                            1016 - King Aethelred dies, and is succeeded by his son Edmund Ironside.
                                            May. Battle of Brentford: King Edmund defeats Cnut, who then besieges London. Both Richeard and Ailef fight in the battle, along with Alfgar and Elfrida. They all seek each other out, but the chaos of battle means they all avoid each other.
                                            18 Oct. Battle of Ashingdon: Cnut defeats King Edmund. Richeard and Ailef finally meet again in battle. Richeard gains the upper hand, but their fight is abandoned when the English are forced into retreat. Edmund signs a treaty with Cnut, leaving Edmund as king of Wessex only.
                                            30 Nov. King Edmund dies and Cnut takes control of the whole country, exiling the remaining members of Edmund's family, including his two sons, Edward and Edmund. Richeard and Alfgar are forced to leave Wessex and head north when Ailef sends men to hunt them down.

                                            To add:

                                            Inconclusive fight between Richeard of Mercia and Ailef of Deira, aka Aldrich Monk, 1016

                                            TO BE CONTINUED

                                            Cheers

                                              • Greetings, Gardner! I'll work on those 20 Latin American names for you and get them posted ASAP. In the meantime, could you post the active and inactive Immortals of Southeast Asia please?

                                                Those African names are taking longer than i thought as my old chronicles are still in a bit of a mess at the moment and it's taking longer to sort through them than i thought. As soon as I've got everything sorted i'll list them here.

                                                Anyway, here's the next chapter in the ongoing Richeard/Ailef saga:

                                                1017 - Ailef arranges the marriage of Cnut to Aethelred's widow Emma of Normandy. Cnut then divides England into the four Earldoms of Wessex, Mercia, East Anglia and Northumbria controlled by himself, Eadric Streona, Thorkell the Tall, and Eric Haakonsson respectively.
                                                Christmas - Ailef arranges the murder of his former ally Eadric, having outlived his usefulness, and sends Saegar to carry out the killing. Ailef begins forging his protégé into a blunt instrument, a weapon to be used agaimst his enemies. Cnut appoints Leofric as Earl of Mercia.

                                                1018 - Cnut succeeds his brother Harold II of Denmark on the Danish throne. Richeard and Alfgar remain in hiding in northern England, moving from place to place while planning their next move against Ailef and Elfrida.

                                                1020 - Richeard and Alfgar smuggle themselves out of England and into Normandy.

                                                1025 - Ailef helps King Cnut forge an alliance with Byzantine emperor Constantine VIII. Meanwhile, after 5 years scouring the length and breadth of the British Isles, Elfrida realises Richeard and Alfgar have escaped. Their whereabouts remain unknown to Ailef and Elfrida.

                                                1027 - Cnut invades the Kingdom of Scotland, forcing Malcolm II to pay homage.
                                                14 May: Richeard and Alfgar attend the crowning of Henry I as King of France at Reims cathedral.

                                                1028 - Cnut becomes King of Norway in addition to King of Denmark and England and Ailef, close adviser and friend to the king, has never been more powerful or influential. He revels in his personal victory over Richeard.

                                                TO BE CONTINUED.

                                                Cheers
