  • There must be entire volumes of potential paperwork there. If you have missing files in case something happens again to your PC they are still available on my mainfraime.
    Personally, I wish the Watchers Chronicles would remain a virtual thing, if you know what I mean...
    Can you please look up Bethany Clarke's profile and give me the lsit of her students ? Still looking for the name of the Frenchwoman she once mentored lol

    Cheers.

    Inconclusive fight against Cristovao Bastos during
    sack of the city by the Suebics, fatally stabbed
    through the chest by Cristovao

    The chronicles of Ben Said-al-Magribi report how in 868 he fought the forces of Count Vimara Peres during the first reconquista of Iberia by Spanish troops, the first attempt to repell Moorish occupation of the Iberian peninsula. Ben Said was in Northern Portugal, when in the middele of a heated battle he sensed the presence of one of his kind, a mercenary who introduced himself as Glismoda, a Suevi briefly listed on the roster of immortals in 468 when she fought Cristovao Bastos during the sack of Coimbra by the Suevi tribe. Glismoda was thought to have been killed by the Portuguese hero, but somehow lived four centuries before re-appearing as a soldier of Count Peres. The battle raged on, ending on a stalemate by the end of the day. The following evening, Ben Said and Glismoda faced each other as immortals are prone to do. Ben Said fought with the same vigor and passion he bestowed on the Portuguese army and won against the Suevi warrior, taking her raw power and battle instinct; the following day, Ben Said won another victory when his army successfully defeated the army Count Vimara Peres.

      Carolyn’s first student, an edgy woman who created scandals in the good society of London with her witty banter and sharp tongue, criticising often the current Victorian regime, complaining of how the once great English nation had turned into a nation of quarrelling prudes looking exactly like what they ate: overgrown steaks. “No wonder the French call you all roast beefs!” she used to say laughing.

      She was challenged by Horst and Hugo Hauser, sarcastically noting how men are courageous when they are two against a lone woman. Those were her last words.

        The Siege of Constantinople in 626 saw the battle of Xanthia of Melitus (again under the influence of a Dark Quickening) against ‘Shibtu of Yambad’ as she introduced herself, a consort and favorite of the Emperor of Constantinople. The fight, long and harduous, ended with Xanthia’s victory, the Quickening was quite powerful and rich, alluding to an immortal of ancient age. Shibtu’s background remained undetermined until her name was found mentioned in a chronicle of Egyptian Ankh-Psantek in 1274 BC, she was a consort of his and had to defend herself against his jealous rage until she disappeared from Watcher scope. Ishtar of Erech is the immortal who disclosed her origin story to Xanthia of Melitus during a trip to the Museum of Louvres in Paris, as she was the subject of an exposed painting.

        I suppose we needed Crocodile Dundee on the Immortal scene I nAustralia, yet another cliché of the Australian myth for the Europeans and Americans who come visit us. Ramsay MacDonald however is a very seriosu player of the Game and an apt survivor who protect the wildlife and its endangered species from ‘roos hunters and croc hunters coming for their pelts. In the past two hundred years sicne wehave bene following him many Immortals have come after his head and never came back from their safari trip. His sole friends in the Immortal community are Mandawuy the shaman and the vigilante Rokali Tapai who also hunts predators, of the sexual kind. They once debated on who are the worst : those who kill to eat or those who maim and rape women andchildren. A neverending debate.

        First recorded sighting : 1890. Kingdom of
        Dahomey. Following Enobakhare in warfare
        against troops led by François Marchette

        Enobakhare and Ikuseghan were soldiers in the corps of Dahomey Amazons, four thousand women molded into the most savage, ruthless and efficent cadre of female warriors of Africa, rivaling with the Spartans and the Kikuyus in savagery. After the dissolution of the corps in 1894, Xavier St. Cloud challenged Enobakhare and Ikuseghan to a fight and was litterally torn apart by the fierce women, losing a part of his stomatch and nearly one limb or two before Ikuseghan started tearing his throat apart with her own teeth. Xavier got lucky he could escape from the furies but he has never been the same since. During the Great War he was using mustard gaz in the Game and In the 1990’s ressorted to mercs armed with uzis. I think the amazon truly destroyed his self-confidence because she wasn’t even carrying her sword when he came after her. Enobakhare and Ikuseghan, who survived the slaughter of the Amazons elite troop durign the French-Dahomey war, are rumored to have joined Buffalo Bill Circus after their mentor took out Xavier and were never seen again, maybe they still live In America, under different identities

        • No offence taken, my friend. All is good my end!

          In the meantime, here's that chronicle you wanted. Feel free to make any updates you need:

          Anne of Cleves

          Age: 528
          Known aliases: Ysmay of Dorchester, Thea van

          Background
          Original cultural affiliation: French
          Born: 1490, Calais, Kingdom of France
          First death: 1512; Raped and murdered by English
          soldiers during King Henry VIII’s War on France
          First teacher: Carolyn Godfrey, cross-identified as Edwina of Mercia
          Known associates: Borin Forthwind, Walter DeGrey,
          Beatrix Kidd, Grace Chandel
          Known past associates: Edwina of Mercia, Bethany
          Clarke, Athalos of Thebes
          Known enemies: Lucius Oranius Capito

          First recorded sighting: 1512, Calais.
          Found and mentored by Edwina, at this time
          passing herself off as a captain of Henry VIII’s army

          Soft-spoken, shy student of Edwina who never really recovered from being raped and murdered by English soldiers during the War of Henry VIII. Became a doctor to help the poor and suffering and has been avoiding the company of Immortals as much as possible with the exception of Edwina’s other students and her friend Grace Chandel.

          The murders of Bethany Clarke and later Edwina have fuelled in her a wish for revenge; while not a vigilante, she embarks on a quest for the Hauser brothers and for Capito whenever she hears news of them.

            • Okay, my friend, here's the first of the deleted chronicles. I only have a few of them though. I must have deleted the others:

              Alphonse of Normandy

              Age: 155
              Known aliases: Albert de Hauteville
              Notable characteristics: 5’ 7”; overweight
              Weapon: Two-handed broadsword

              Status
              Most recent base of operations: Caen, Normandy
              Occupation: Soldier, fighting off invading English
              forces, Hundred Years War
              Roster of Immortals Status: Deceased
              Date: October 1450
              Place: Caen
              Victor: Lothar I
              Watcher: Frederique de Gris

              Background
              Original cultural affiliation: Norman
              Born: 1295, Rouen, Duchy of Normandy
              First death: 1345; Killed in skirmish with English
              forces, Hundred Years War
              First teacher: Marie-Louise Biez
              Known associates: None
              Known past associates: Marie-Louise Biez

              First recorded sighting: 1347, outskirts of Rouen, Normandy.
              Found and mentored by Biez during Black Plague
              years

              The fight was brief, Alphonse pitted all his strength against the mercenary in service to the invading English, to no avail; Lothar was a player of the Game for centuries, he was fast and mean, has speed while Alphonse was an overweight aggressive Immortal who only knew brute strength without any fighting skills. That is why he lost.

              Borin Forthwind

              Age: 374
              Known aliases: Brian of Wessex
              Notable characteristics: None
              Weapon: English medieval broadsword

              to rob houses and churches
              Prior occupations: Soldier, mercenary, thief
              Roster of Immortals Status: Deceased
              Date: 1446
              Place: Middlesex, England
              Victor: Kenneth
              Watcher: Research, England

              Background
              Original cultural affiliation: English
              Born: 1072, Wessex, Kingdom of England
              First death: 1101; Battle of Tinchebrai under
              King Edward I of England
              First teacher: Bartholomew of Wessex
              Known associates: Kenneth
              Known past associates: Bartholomew of Wessex
              Known enemies: None

              First recorded sighting: 1101, Tinchebrai, Kingdom
              of France. Student of Bartholomew

              I suppose that after two years of travelling with Borin and being little more than his hired help receiving only scraps of food for his good services, Kenneth decided his time as Forthwind’s lackey was over. When he lured Borin into the old abbey, the man from Wessex didn’t suspect the place was derelict and contained none of the treasure Kenneth promised. The Saxon boy buried his accomplice up to his neck with crumbling stones before taking his head, mockingly stating that one should take better care of the people who he chooses to travel with.

              • Thanks Apollo. I gave a different background to Borin, now named Ioan Gruffud (aka Borin Forthwind of England), born In the Kingdom of Wales.
                "Borin Forthwind" is a fantasy name actually, it doesn't exist anywhere on sites referencing medieval English names. He would more be a Dungeons & Dragons kind of character.
                As for Alphonse... well, I must have disliked him and I already have a Frenchman killed during the One-Hundred Years War.

                In the last nine years since we started this gig on the HLBB I deleted 370 characters with valid reasons... and recycled one hundred of those.
                I have presently 3,730 Immortals on my lists.

                The stats on your files do look great.

                Would you have a character named Erik De Pre on you lists ? Killed by Seraphina in Sout hAfrica.

                • I actually like the stats and background on Borin Forthwind as a victim of Kenneth. But i agree that his name is a bit D & D fantasy, so i decided to check out the Saxon names and have now updated thus:

                  Borin Forthwind becomes....

                  Breid of Wessex

                  Known aliases: Bula of Hastings, Bitel Fossard

                  I'll see if i have Erik De Pre and i'll post those other chronicles i have.

                    David Bowie

                    Darius Crews and Hunter Quayle have often been mistaken for Hazeem Al Bachrim and Carter Wellan, a pair of wandering Immortals of opposite cultural background, one black, one white, living in environments where racial mixing was at best viewed with scorn and prejudice. Crews and Quayle’s backgrounds are those of one Africna negro paired with a white anglo-saxon, one never without the other. But where the Ashanti Hazeem and his companion played the game and travelled to the four corners of the Earth, Crews and Quayle stayed neutral in the Game and kept a low profile, living as cow-boys, gunslingers, bounty hunters, sheriff deputies and all manners of gun-toting heroes of the American West, though they would never call themselves heroes, rather survivors.

                    The following timeline was maistakenly attributed to the Moor and his suqire, it is now officially attributed to Darius Crews and Hunter Quayle.

                    1835–36: The Texas Revolution in Mexico resulted in the short-lived Republic of Texas. The Revolution is supported by Darius and Hunter who meets his first death durign the Battle of the Alamo.
                    1838–40: Both men take part in the Civil war in the Federal Republic of Central America that led to the foundings of Guatemala, El Salvador, Honduras, Nicaragua, and Costa Rica. Unconclusive fight of Darius against Lothar the Frank.
                    1844: Darius and Hunter fight in the Dominican War of Independence from Haiti.
                    1846-1848 : Involved in the American-Mexican War.
                    1848–58: California Gold Rush; Travel all the way to the 'land of opportunities'. Unconclusive fight of Hunter against Kern.
                    1861–65: American Civil War between the Union and seceding Confederacy; Darius joins the all-black regiment commanded by Robert Gould, immortal, and meet pre-immortal Andrew Cord.
                    1868-1878: Ten Years' War between Cuba and Spain sees Darius and Hunter on Spain's side. Both men disappear after encounter with young Immortal resistance fighter Loretta Velasquez

                    Watcher Research, Central America

                    See where this is going ? We have Robert Gould and his student Andrew Cord, Harehs and Carter Wellan and now Darius and Hunter!
                    Darius and Hunter are redundant but I like them all the same...

                    The Messenger, aka the Apostate I
                    From the Chronicles of the Sacred Order research project

                    One upon a time, the Apostate role wasn't given to Kotys the Hunter but to an ancient and wise Immortal who discovered the secret of Memnet-Ra and his infamous Zodiac Brotherhood, a man driven to world dominion by using Immortals as his pawns, like pieces of chess, and started the sick heresy known as The Game. Two thousand years of pointless killing the man known as the Apostate decided to stop. Thus was born the legend of the Messenger, an Immortal who betrayed his pledge to the Order of Sacred Knowledge and stopped killing his own kind, in the name of peace. For eleven hundred years - from the day he left the Order to his untimely death in 1996 - the Messenger scoured the world, looking for Immortals ready to listen to his message, going so far as to pose as Methos, the oldest living man. His identity still remain one of the best kept secrets of the Order. In time the Order forgave his betrayal and he was replaced with a more ruthless Apostate, Kotys the Hunter.
                    Kotys himself sought to kill him : not only for betraying the Order but also because of the trail of bodies the Other Methos left in his trail : good men and women who forsook the Game and paid the ultimate price for it. Eventually, a Kurgan wannabe named Wilhelm Kliest (aka William Cullbraith) cheated Kotys out of his assignment, but the damage was gone : had it not been for the Messenger and his preaching, many more Immortals would live to this day and now that the Gathering is coming by the end of the next decade, The Sacred Order works to preserve the secrets of the Immortals so their existence be never forgotten. And this is a true testament of the wonders Immortals and Watchers could do together.

                      Roster of Immortals Status: Deceased
                      Date: 1 January 1990
                      Place: Valley of the Kings
                      Victor: Connie Richland
                      Watcher: Kirby McCauley

                      Background
                      Original cultural affiliation: English
                      Born: 1728, London, England
                      First death: 1768; Massacre of St George’s Fields,
                      killed by British troops while protesting imprisonment
                      of John Wilkes
                      First teacher: Roger Bacon
                      Known associates: None
                      Known past associates: Roger Bacon, Urania Blackwell,
                      Bernie Crimmins
                      Known enemies: Zai Jie, Connie Richland

                      First recorded sighting: 1787, Valley of Mampang,
                      China. Inconclusive fight against Zai Jie.

                      Carter Hawk had only one passion, only one love: unearthing ancient treasures, discovering forgotten civilizations and old languages. While this would rank him as a favorite Immortal among historians and researchers in Watcher circles, Carter lived also for the Game, for the thrill of battle and for the Prize. But this was second only to his love of archaeology. He was first spotted on Watcher records in the Mampang Valley of China, when he met and challenged Immortal Zai Jie over the digging of an ancient temple. The fight was interrupted by an abrupt landslide, Carter just left the area.

                      He was seen combing the four corners of the world, digging forgotten treasures and occasionally playing the Game. In 1861, he married a pre-Immortal girl and trained her in fencing and archaeology, but never managed to make her a happy woman. Urania soon left him alone, and Carter resumed his life.

                      In 1990, he returned to the Valley of the Kings in Egypt where he challenged Connie Richland, another Egyptologist trying to learn more about Pharaohs’ subjects and life in ancient Egypt, Connie fought Carter and won. While Carter was a dedicated player of the Game and a proficient earth-digger, he forgot one thing: to be a man, a human being, and this, somehow, is what lost him when he underestimated, first his wife, then Connie Richland.

                        peace, Fletcher was killed shortly therafter

                        Ah Vincent ! Lost somewhere on a road, looking for an unattainable goal he never could reach. Born in a time predating the Game, seeing the folly of it but never realising the Game was such a part of Immortality that both could be never be parted. I long suspected Vincent was older than I am, but who can prove it ? When I spoke to him the first time, he never realised who I was and I seriously believed his mind had crumbled when Iistened to his idiotic antics about fear being the source of all evil on earth. The source of evil is us, of course. Just us. What I find truly shameful is how his "teachings" led other Immortals to their death, which is a perversion of his message of peace : lay down your sword so we all live together like a big happy family. Well, all families are dysfunctional and have their nasty elements. Like my dearly departed family.

                        Student of Martin Hyde

                        Martin Hyde trained Christoph Koenig well and turned him into an unredeemable bastard and killer of yougn Immortals as were all the Immortals from his line of students. Exept Christoph didn't kill seasoned Immortals, his preferences went to Immortal women. Koenig lived for the thrill of the hunt and specialized in women since he was taught early they could be as dangerous as wilcats or black spiders; he killed six that we know of until he crossed the path of Kristin Gilles whom he though to be his next quarry, but he was the one to be picked off : she seduced him out of his wits, they spent a few months together until he tired of her and tried for her head. But this is a wicked woman who knows her way with poisoned daggers and sword. She launched her blade through his heart and took his head, scoring another Immortal like the praying mantis she proved to be.

                        • Yes! Really loved what you did with Jacob of Ashkelon. An Apostate before Kotys the Hunter? Genius idea!
                          And the fact the new Apostate set out to eliminate his predecessor was also a nice twist and proof of how far Kotys will go to preserve the secrets of the Order.
                          Still got to wonder though whether Methos is aware of the Order or not. The Order obviously knows all about him....

                          Ivor thought he could take on Amy Ross, a student of the great Henry of Kent, and was sadly mistaken when the relatively young woman landed him on his knees and took his head, stating that men of his generation have no better manners than the ones who challenged her decades ago.
                          Found and mentored by Keith “crazy weasel” Boyer, Ivor was infected with the aggression coming from the young Immortal and thought the best defence was attack. He expected to take on one Immortal after another, figuring he had all the time in the world to win the fabled Prize; he would go from one city to another, posing as a college student, living large and enjoying his immortal youth. But he stayed the computer geek he used to be, and no one would talk to him because of his insufferable arrogance and chauvinistic attitude to foreign students.
                          When at last he met his first Immortal, sweet-natured Amy, he thought himself lucky and lost his head before he even got to lose his virginity.

                          In the 108th year of his immortal life, Anthony Bainard was working on a sculpture of the Virgin Mother and her child to celebrate the nativity by the end of December. The Virgin Mother was nearly done, the baby Jesus looked beautiful, as if coming alive in the hands and tools of Anthony.
                          The young Immortal was respected by his peers and avoided the company of other Immortals as much as possible, having been forewarned by his master, John Garrick, that a Scot would come after him and end his life. So, Anthony stayed in England and never set foot in Scotland.

                          Alas, William Campbell of Strathclyde was a man who liked to hunt outside of Scotland and had already killed an English Immortal in 1376. When William heard strange stories of a stonecutter who seemingly kept his youthful appearance when others grew old and died past the age of thirty, he started hunting again.
                          On the 23rd of December, Anthony Bainard’s head fell to the ground, his Quickening lit up the sky and destroyed the last of his work, because of a Scottish murderer who never saw the beauty his quarry created.

                            On the Black Continent, 1960 became known as 'the Year of Africa' with Belgian Congo, Togo and Somalia claiming their independance from the empires that kept them under their rule. Echijole Jimah, always one to fight for a rightful cause fought for the emancipation of those three countries and got caught in the schemes of Erik De Pre, a Walloonian involved in the Congo Crisis. Closely working with Sunda Kastagir, Bebe Kiamonni and Sekou Nkruma she worked on the revolutionnaries ' side and found herself in conflict with De Pre whose games of politics were putting the newly independant country in danger. Echijole interfered and took the head of De Pre, but unfortunately couldn’t prevent the subsequent civil war that took place between 1961 and 1963.

                            John Rhodes is the man who taught Frank Bascombe and Girk Coejeman eveything they knows about the Game, about hunting colored people so that the One may be the white man as it is the will of God. Jews, blacks, Asians, Pollacks, none of them are safe in South Africa, for John Rhodes is watching us, keeping us safe from the black Satan.
                            He killed five immortals in one century and could have killed three more, but Rhodes is a patient man : he has files on the immortals of South Africa, he knows where they are and that he can easily defeat them.
                            In the end there can be only one. In South Africa, the white man prevails.

                            Culbraith was pretty good with a sword and had a chip on his shoulder the size of Detroit, but somehow I found it hard to be intimidated by a guy who's still wearing leisure suits in the '90s. No wonder the peace-loving Methos thought he could turn this guy from the dark side -- Culbraith was nothing more than a Bad Guy Wannabe. He was a villian seriously in need of a makeover if he wanted to compete in the big leagues. Face it, the Kurgan would have had this guy for lunch.

                            Period of Sumer. Encounter with Tizkar of Sumer

                            There is not one “Methos Chronicle” per se as much as there are threads, pale and finely spun, weaving their way in and through all the other chronicles. The trick to researching Methos is to find a thread and follow it as far as you can go before it disappears again. Much of what is “known” about the elusive oldest immortal is based on vague rumor,innuendo. Much of it is also wrong. While he can be placed in Sumer during the Early Dynastic Period, and later in Ur in the 2nd Millenia BC., he is most likely not Sumerian. While there is evidence to support his presence in Egypt in three separate periods, he is not Egyptian.
                            Whatever his origin, he has been many things since; he has been a slave and a god and all manner of men in between. He has been described as a huge bear-like man, with a deep booming voice; a fearsome warrior, noted for his wisdom and his cunning; a natural leader of men who would eagerly lay down their lives for him. Earlier Methos Research has speculated that Ahaziah of Ramoath Gilead was one of Methos alias, but if that were the case, Methos died in Lutetia in 423 AD in front of a number of witnesses. But I do not believe that is the case. One can still see his trace in the Chronicles, as recently as three hundred years ago. I believe that Methos is still out there, somewhere ready to be found if we can just locate the proper thread and follow it to its natural conclusion.

                            Paris, January 1995

                            ADDENDUM: I’ve left this tissue of lies and half-truths “huge,bear-like, man,with a deep booming voice”?
                            Only in your dreams, Pierson!) in the Methos profile, because I think the lies he chose to tell us about himself are as illuminating as the few actual tidbits of truth he wanted to make sure we knew about him. As infuriating as Methos’ infiltration of the Watchers and his “doctoring” of the truth has been to us all, I believe that with careful study, it will reveal as much about the man that I’m sure he’ll wish we never knew. Take for example how careful he is to disprove the Ahaziah-theory-as much as he may want to stay hidden, he is vain about his life and his achievements and can’t bear to have them attributed to another. And there are even a few bones he’s thrown in for us: “later in Ur in the 2nd Millenia BC”- the Watchers currently have no records from this period on any Immortals- “there is evidence to support his presence in Egypt in three separate periods “-we’ve only confirmed evidence of Methos in Egypt in the reign of Merneferre Ay. Now, whether he’s done this to help us out or just jerk our chains remains to be seen. Or maybe he was just bucking to make his alter-ego Adam Pierson “Watcher of the Year.”

                              Student of al-Rashid

                              To Zoraida, immortality had no meaning, only the beauty of the Quran, the peerless worlds of Allah, the friendship of Haroun al-Rashid (thrice blessed be his name) and of the Western woman, Rebecca (aka Xanthia of Melitus). She lived for her poetry, for the laughs of her friends, the smile of a child (she helped to give birth to many) and took delight in her writing. Then that beast from northern Russia came to Oran, sacked the city and destroyed the world of Zoraida, killing her friends, burning her books, before taking her head.
                              A noble woman is gone forever, the legacy of Haroun al-Rashid is now extinct with the death of Hamza el-Kahir, and with Iman Fasil having turned to his own darkness.

                              Even before his First Death, Joshua Boone was mentally ill, hiding his compulsive, depressed behavior behind acts of vandalism and thievery that led him to the gallows when he was framed for the massacre of an entire family, found on the crime scene in a pool of blood. He was hung without a trial and buried in an unmarked grave from which he was dug up by Walter DeGrey, fellow Englishman and savvy player of the Game.

                              Walter taught Joshua what he could and left him on his own after a few years spent together. Left alone, Joshua went back to his depressed state until his encounter with stonemason John Garrick who told him of a legendary city located somewhere in England where Immortals dwelt: the disenfranchised, the infirm, the ugly, the murderers, all their sins redeemed. While some old chronicles write about the cult of the ancient god Baphomet, held by Immortals, there is no conclusive proof of the existence of “Midian”, the place Garrick referred to and whose legend made its way into the feverish imagination of horror writer Clive Barker.

                              Or maybe Garrick was referring to St Cristopher? No one knows for sure, but Boone believed in it and spent his immortality searching for “Midian” until he met up with Tabitha Kinsey whom he mistook for a kindred soul because of her misshapen face. Boone didn’t survive his encounter with Tabitha, which is a shame; maybe he could have led up to Midian…

                                To Zoraida, immortality had no meaning, only the beauty of the Quran, the peerless worlds of Allah, the friendship of Haroun al-Rashid (thrice blessed be his name) and of the Western woman, Rebecca (aka Xanthia of Melitus). She lived for her poetry, for the laughs of her friends, the smile of a child (she helped to give birth to many) and took delight in her writing. Then that Moorish beast bearing a Christian name came to Oran, sacked the city and destroyed the world of Zoraida, killing her friends, burning her books, before taking her head. A noble woman is gone forever, the legacy of Haroun al-Rashid is now extinct with the death of Hamza el-Kahir, and with Iman Fasil having turned to his own darkness.

                                  Young Thomas was foolish enough to challenge Paul Kinman, fellow Immortal and assassin, lost his duel and paid for it with his insolent head. May God have mercy on his soul.

I brought a change to Preston as we already have an Englishwoman killed during the English Civil War... the Crimson Butterfly!

                                    The following is to be entered on the records of the SIS activities

                                    Finally the old bastar is dead. After fifty years of evading the pursuits of the Secret Immortal Society for his war crimes in the Trenches, in Crimea, in India, in Kenya, for causing the needless death of countless civilians and British officers, of Zulu warriors , of German soldiers during the Great War and WWII, the SIS found his trace, in the heart of Birmingham where he was hiding in plain sight. Helen Bondeville stationed in Birmingham hunted him to the outskirts of the city, where no camera would observe his execution, and put an end to his madness and his fanatism for wars.
                                    For fifty years European nations have been living in peace, the colonial empires crumbled under their weight, but Colonel Kilian would never change. The last time he nearly lost his head was when Duncan MacLeod hunted him after his execution in 1918, but I guess his time was up this year.

                                    Alice Ming has been seeing Sean Burns again, the nightmares from her past came back : her First Death and rape in 1832, her investigation of the Connoisseur’s crimes in 1842, the Asian Immortals from the criminal Chinese undergrounds she had to kill over the years, her investigation of the Rape of Nanking, all of this has brought back terrible memories from the past. While this is a tough woman she reached her breaking point and needs her rest. Her best therapy so far is her involvement with the online Chinese community with which she runs non-profit social events in Liverpool’s Chinatown, though this is not enough to alleviate her burgeoning depression.

                                    Carnathen. Mentored by Rhiannon Teague after his
                                    body was recovered during swamps cleaning
                                    Operation sponsored by government

                                    When the intact body of Dafydd Huws was recovered near Carnathen, the scientific world was puzzled at seening an delirious man who somehow survived drowning in quicksands and talked like a man born in the 1930’s. Rhiannon Teague got wind of the affair and investigfated the matter, finding a new immortal; she took he matter in her own hands after warning the SIS which put pressures on Wales agencies to release Huws to the competent hands of Teague. Dafydd Huws became a permanent guest at Sean Burns’ Black Friar Asylum after it became obvious the man would never recover his sanity : drowning again and again for thirty years, sliding from half-consciousness to coma, with watery sand in your lungs is bound to destroy your psyche. Dafydd Huws thinks himself back in the Carnathen of the 1960’s; oblivious to the outside world, his mind forever gone.
                                    When the Immortals War erupted and the other immortals patients of Burns rioted, Dafydd was away with the fairies, so to speak, and was never aware of it.

                                    Since I had a little too many deaths in the US Northwest during the 1990's, here are a few Immortals for your Inactive lists. Not that it will make any difference when the Gathering comes...
                                    As far as the 1990's deaths toll is concerned, there is also the interference of Rita Luce and James Horton's death squad who killed 23 Immortals. 1970's : 126 deaths, 1980's : 156, 1990's : 187 + 23 killed by Watchers;
                                    2000's : 226, showing how violence is escalating. 2010's so far : 300 with the Immortals War.

                                    If you asked John Garrick about his mental health problems, he’d be the first to tell you he’s beaten it, he’s cured. Frued thought so. Jung thought so. Even Sean Burns, the noted psychotherapist and his fellow man, is convinced of his recovery I guess you have to be his Watcher, not his shrink, to see that all is still not well in the mind of Garrick the Stonecutter. Some say Garrick has been crazy since he was born, that his lifelong gift of Vision and his insanity both flow from the same dark recess of his mind. But the Chronicles show that for the first 400 years of his life, Garrick was a gentle and loving soul—good husband, good friend- who viewed his gifts of sculpture of Vision, and of immortaliy all as blessings from God, whom he praised through his stonework on churches throughout England. It is only after 1662, with the fiery death of his last wife, Julianna, and his own subsequent burning at the hands of an ignorant and superstitious mob, that his personal demons began to overpower him. And now, after 400 years of first hand knowledge of how mankind treats its insane, Garrick can walk the walk and the talk the talk of sanity. He knows the jargon, he knows the craft of the shrinks. He says he knows how the mind works, and indeed he does. Only, it’s not a healthy mind, he understands—its his own. The danger will come when he decides to use that knowledge.

                                    In light of the description of the Bronze Age Methos given by Cassandra to Cleophon of Athens, confirmed by Methos himself – a warrior clad in white, with a skull-shaped mask wearing war paints – one might infer that the mysterious stranger calling himself White Skull, a medecine man in the American West of 1730, may well have been the elusive Methos. The chronicle of Cheyenne immortal Little Robe describes his teacher as speaking with a British accent, sporting a beak-shaped nose and having wreaked havoc on mortal kind ages ago. Methos having been in San Francisco in 1795, where he killed the Celt immortal Vergolix, it is likely he may have mentored Little Robe in South Dakota sixty years before.

                                    The Chronicles of Basil Morgan

                                    They say that during global catastrophes like the Ice Age, megatsunamis, earthquake or the asteroid that wiped the dinosaurs out, only small species no bigger than my hand will survive. I guess that's true, since the dinosaurs left the place to small mamals that later evolved in to Homo Sapiens. I guess the same is true for some immortals : the discret, silent ones, those who know they cannot live by the sword and need to use their brains in order to keep their heads on their shoulders. A good example of this would be Basil Morgan, Amanda's fence from Toronto. Let's take a look at all the dramas and he survived :

                                    In the middle of the 17th Century, Basil is killed during tenement fire with his wife and adopted child and survive by fleeing to the New Continent, before being able to return to his homeland decades later.
                                    1866 sees the Great Fire of Chicago and the first sighting of Morgan by a Watcher. A battle had started between Cybelle McWirter (aka Kellistra) and an immortal calling himself "King Minos". The latter's quickening set fire to a barn, a fire which due to a combination of bad luck torched the entire city. The mouse-faced immortal was here, out of the way, and managed to survive.

                                    In 1912, Basil sailed for New-York on the largest, safest boat ever built by man : the Titaninc. We all know what happened to that boat. Basil became famous for being
                                    one of three immortals to survive the catastrophe : Amanda, Duncan MacLeod and himself.
                                    In 1936, Basil is living as a Jewish tailor in Berlin during the Nazis rise to power. He survives by staying out of the way and turning into a cemetery caretaker in Munich until 1942 when he is rounded up by nazi soldiers to be sent to Dachau. Basil killed the soldiers and fled into the night.
                                    In 1985, Basil Morgan settles in Toronto's Chinatown as a fence, gaining the confidence of immortals such a Amanda, Corey Raines and Viktor Hansen. Scoping out the local underground, he becomes a well-liked fence. Making sure a church or a shrine is in the vicinity and keeping his sword in reach. Surprisingly, Basil survived the end-of-century Gathering when so many immortals felt the urge to kill each other endlessly. But that was close.
                                    Fifteen years after settling in Toronto, Basil moved to New Orleans where he lived on the border of the law until Erika came around. The Americans had sown the wind with their pollution, their reaped the whirlind. Marie Laveau, Papa Beloved and Basil sTodd their grounds and helped many imperished mortals to survive, all those the US government had left out.

                                    See ? That's a recurring pattern for the man : a skinny immortal who you wouldn't expect to live out his first decade of immortality and, using his brains, manages to live though three hundred years of perils.

                                    For two years Sherilynn has been surviving the only way she could think of, making easy money with her youthful charms, knowing she didn’t have to fear std’s or malcontent customers with her two-edged broadsword. By training regularly with the best mortal teachers in town she made serious progress, creating a technique of martial arts move mixed with her swords skills; we do hope she came out of the Immortals War unscathed and that 1994 will see her among us since she was nowhere to be seen on last year’s census.

                                    the Romans

                                    Known ennemies : Obelix, Vorlix of Gergovia
                                    First recorded sighting : 52 BC. Battle of Alesia
                                    Fighting the Romans with Vorlix and Caratarix,
                                    aka Methos

                                    Most have known Obelix as a fierce Celtic warrior, but that was not all their was to him. Reports in all of his chronicles note that he was a happy man who took great joy in life. From the moment his feet hit the floor in the morning he was smiling and whistling. He found great joy in everything he did. He was a cunning warrior, but he was also a gifted metal craftsman. He could turn gold and silver metal into beautiful yet practical tools. He often gifted his students with swords that he handcrafted for them.
                                    I don’t believe that Grayson knew that Obelix was here when he rode into the village looking for a blacksmith. But when they saw each other a fight was not far behind. Obelix considered both Darius and Grayson as enemies for the attack that destroyed the village he was living in at the time. That was when Grayson and Darius were determined to conquer all of Europe.
                                    He nearly killed Darius when he ran into to him in Paris. Darius came off holy ground to face Obelix, and told him that he could not and would not fight him. Darius said, “Nothing I do can make up for the pain I have caused you or others that I have harmed. My only way to atone for the wrongs that I have done is to try to live each day in peace and help others. I will not fight you. If you must kill me, than you must do so now.” Obelix would not kill an unarmed man and saw that Darius had truly changed and left. But Grayson was another matter altogether, he was not repentant or apologetic priest living a life of poverty, chastity, and piety. Grayson was an arrogant warlord counting his spoils that he gained from raiding eastern kingdoms in the name of Christianity. Obelix fought valiantly but Grayson was better, and so ends the chronicle of Obelix of Gaul.

                                    • Thanks for the latest updates, my friend. Great work again.

                                      I'm going to be on holiday for 2 weeks from this weekend. In the meantime I've been going through my own chronicles and noticed i have some Immortals on the active/inactive list that are no longer the same. I'll post the names before i go and hope you can post their updated chronicles....?

                                      Cheers

                                        The little rock of Ethiopia grew legs and moved out of Eastern Africa to discover the North American continent, in search for Ethiopian people who settled in the Americas. My best guess is she is startign with Canada before moving to Washignton DC and Los Angeles' Little Ethiopia before I suppose, moving to Latin America.

                                        Frank Bascombe

                                        Frank Bascombe,relatively new to the Game but already a savy swordfighter and collector of heads. His M.O is to settle in a place known for its population of immortals, take his time, settle in a mortal activity and then start counting the immortals living in the city. When he's done counting, Bascombe starts hunting for non-white immortals. He cheats : he compensates his poor swordfighting skills with stun gun, tear gaz, pouch of powder, anything; and when his quarry is weakened, he goes for the kill. Each decade sees a city depopulated from non-caucasian immortals : Southern Africa in the 1900's, Western Africa in the 1910's, North Africa in the 1920's and so on.

                                        From each immortal he killed, Bascombe took a souvenir : an Inca gold mak from Diego Cristobal, a short sword from Muhammad of Algiers, a spear from Colette Ougounbo. Because he was raised in Boer culture where white people held rascist views toward black and other-colored people, Bascombe makes a point on targeting only non-caucasian immortals : Black, Chinese, Italian, Slavic, Jewish etc.. All fall to his sword, because the bastard believes in eithnic cleansing among the immortals. His homes of Aspen, Johannesburg and Seattle are full of the mementos he picked from his quarries and bear testimony to the many cultures that white men eradicated from the surface of the earth for the past centuries.

                                        Frank was a disciple of Thomas Morehead at about the same time as Oskar Felder but never joined with the Combined Immortals of America, choosing other pursuits, as co-founder of the Ku Klux Klan.

                                        He was a beast ! A real psycho ! A murderer and he really had it in for the Lightning woman. Fifty years ago he raped her and mutilated her after murdering her friends and family in barbaric ways, using techniques that no civilized man would dare to use. Then he hunted her down across the United States after terrorizing her.But gentle Chrystle has her bite, the spirits of her ancestors runs wild into her and she can be one savage hellion when needs be. She chose her ground, her weapon and faced what was to come, avenging the murder of her family.Nothing is known about Donald Black Bear, exept for his identity and his taste for cannibalim and ritualistic murders. No trace is to be found about him in the chronicles, aside an ancient story about how James Coltec the Hayoka fought a demon-bear to a standstill six hundred years ago, in what is today known as Illinois.The Black Bear used to be a powerful immortal, skillful to destroy innocent lives; Coltec apparently failed to kill him, so it was another Native American who had to do the job centuries later.

                                        The expedition led by Professor Koriand discovered the Order of Sacred Knowledge living in the Lost City fo Z, their temple and safe haven. The order couldn't let them go with with their lives, their anonimity now compromised so in a gesture of kindness, offered the six Immortals to serve them and stay with them, away from the Game... or else (else being the watchful Apostate). When finally Koriand and his friends escaped the City of Z the Apostate came after them and sanctioned them all with extreme prejudice.The Order of Sacred Knowledge finally moved out fo the Matto Grosso and settled in Southern Greece, having stayed there for the past three decades.

                                        From the Records of the Tribunal
                                        The Chronicles of Basil Morgan

                                        They say that during global catastrophes like the Ice Age, megatsunamis, earthquake or the asteroid that wiped the dinosaurs out, only small species no bigger than my hand will survive. I guess that's true, since the dinosaurs left the place to small mamals that later evolved in to Homo Sapiens. I guess the same is true for some immortals : the discret, silent ones, those who know they cannot live by the sword and need to use their brains in order to keep their heads on their shoulders. A good example of this would be Basil Morgan, Amanda's fence from Toronto. Let's take a look at all the dramas and he survived :
                                        1866 sees the Great Fire of Chicago and the first sighting of Morgan by a Watcher. A battle had started between Cybelle McWirter (aka Kellistra) and an immortal calling himself "King Minos". The latter's quickening set fire to a barn, a fire which due to a combination of bad luck torched the entire city. The mouse-faced immortal was here, out of the way, and managed to survive.
                                        In 1912, Basil sailed for New-York on the largest, safest boat ever built by man : the Titaninc. We all know what happened to that boat. Basil became famous for being one of three immortals to survive the catastrophe : Amanda, Duncan MacLeod and himself.
                                        In 1985, Basil Morgan settles in Toronto's Chinatown as a fence, gaining the confidence of immortals such a Amanda, Corey Raines and Viktor Hansen. Scoping out the local underground, he becomes a well-liked fence. Making sure a church or a shrine is in the vicinity and keeping his sword in reach. Surprisingly, Basil survived the end-of-century Gathering when so many immortals felt the urge to kill each other endlessly. But that was close.
                                        That's a recurring pattern for the man : a skinny immortal who you wouldn't expect to live out his first decade of immortality and, using his brains, manages to live through one hundred and ffity years.

                                        • Managed to get a wi-fi signal while on holiday with a spare half hour to browse your latest updates. I really enjoyed them, especially the latest exploits of The Apostate and the Koriand Expedition Immortals. It makes one wonder how many other missing Immortals simply went looking where they weren't supposed to and fell foul of the Order's cleaner...?

                                          Btw do you have the chronicles of the Immortals on the Koriand Expedition, and also those of the Immortals experimented on and murdered by Nikola Tesla?

                                          Cheers

                                          • The Apostate sancioned a lot of Immortals over the years.
                                            Here are the stories you wanted.

                                            Happy holiday!

                                            Encounter with Catherine Beckett

                                            The expedition led by Professor Koriand in 1965 sought the lost city of Z in the Matto Grosso and disappeared, never to be seen again. This pack of immortals was made of pacific souls, led by a passion for discovery and adventures:
                                            Teophile Koriand was mentored by Carmen Morales, a Mayan immortal who changed forever his outlook on the Precolumbian world, proving to him that Europeans and set foot on Latin America centuries before Colombus came to the Americas.
                                            Cypriano of Ghent was challenging the rules of the mortal world before the taste of adventure took him beyond the seas, already involved in a revolution in pre-immortal life, involved in countless revolutions and having gained the ennemity of Paul Karros - Cypriano was a true beliver and idealist, while Karros is an opportunist.
                                            Mark Falconer was as gifted in digging up old ruins as he was in decyphering old texts, wether in India or on the African continent, and in the Game smartly used a whip to disarm his opponents before killing them - although not permanently.
                                            Harrison Goldberg is known for having suffered one of the most unique and unpleasant First Deaths in immortals history, but his teacher was a hot-blooded woman who turned his imperialist, mysogynist views of the world around, forever altering his perception of the negros race. He was never the same after Maple left him, and sought her out as much as he sought to dig up buried old cities.
                                            Jack Hermandez, the film-maker of the group, cynic, opportunist, treasure hunter seeking to line his pockets so his film production empire could grow. He sought to become richer than any of the 1960's Hollywood films moguls.
                                            Eleanor Holland, the only woman of the group, serving as assistant secretary to Koriand, playing the shy mouse, who astonished her male counterparts when she faced a a tribe of Amazonian headhunters by single-handedly freeing her captive collagues before dispatching the Amazonians on her own. A resourceful woman who was once mentored by a black woman, discovering of negro people could be as clever as white people, setting her on a course to promote equality of races during the civil rights movement of the 1960's in America.
                                            Whatever happened to this group is unknown to us.

                                            The expedition led by Professor Koriand discovered the Order of Sacred Knowledge living in the Lost City fo Z, their temple and safe haven. The order couldn't let them go with with their lives, their anonimity now compromised so in a gesture of kindness, offered the six Immortals to serve them and stay with them, away from the Game... or else (else being the watchful Apostate). When finally Koriand and his friends escaped the City of Z the Apostate came after them and sanctioned them all with extreme prejudice.The Order of Sacred Knowledge finally moved out fo the Matto Grosso and settled in Southern Greece, having stayed there for the past three decades.

                                            Dying from paludism is in itself a metaphysical experiment : like being possessed by bad spirits who make you discover in yourself an abyss of cold darkness while your body is ravaged by fevers making you feel as is you were transported from the Sahel to Siberia. No matter how you are being covered to keep you warm, the cold is intense and coming from inside, turning you inside out, killing you after days and days of burning fever.When Lisa Mafamy eventually recovered, she had actually ded with her entire village, surrounded with the corpses of her friends and family. The only living person by her side was immortal Sekou Nrumah who sensed her new immortality while he was attending to the dying villagers.
                                            There was nothing else he could have done. Sekou trained Lisa well and helped her join another clan in Sudan and taught her how to keep in touch with her clan's descendants.

                                            1939 : the Red Army invades eastern portions of Poland stating the protection of Ukrainians and Belarusians as their operation's primary goal and Poland's "seizure to exist" as the justification of the action.
                                            Grigori Sitchenko is reporting the ongoing invasion as wxell as reportign hte atrocities comitted by the Germans against civilias, the executions and reprisals.
                                            The USSR started a campaign against Finland, known as the Winter War (1939–40). The war took a heavy death toll on the Red Army, the Six of Vinland found themselves facing the BMR but both group decided to avoid each other. Sitchenko found himself between the two factions, writing on the war against Finland, carefully omitting any details pertaining to immortal activity.
                                            Axis forces led by Germany swept across the Soviet border on June 22, 1941. By the autumn the German army had seized Ukraine, laid a siege of Leningrad, and threatened to capture the capital, Moscow, itself. Nicholas Kuchinka defended Ukraine as best as he could, while his Russian colleagues put up the best front possible in Moscow.
                                            Vera and Vasily Dionisy fought and killed two German immortals trying to capture Moscow, their only witness being Sitchenko who simply wrote around a powerful lightning storm which set fire to several partsof the city.
                                            By the end of 1943, the Red Army had broken through the German siege of Leningrad and liberated much of Ukraine, much of Western Russia and moved into Belarus. By the end of 1944, the front had moved beyond the 1939 Soviet frontiers into eastern Europe. Soviet forces drove into eastern Germany, capturing Berlin in May 1945. The war with Germany thus ended triumphantly for the Soviet Union but not for hte unfortunate Sitchenko who mysteriously disappearedn his body found decapitated in e suburban home, later discovered as having belongd to Nikola Tesla.

                                            The Fenian Brotherhood was an Irish republican organization founded in the United States in 1858 by John O'Mahony and Michael Doheny. It was a precursor to Clan na Gael, a sister organization to the Irish Republican Brotherhood. Members were commonly known as "Fenians". O'Mahony, who was a Celtic scholar, named his organization after the Fianna, the legendary band of Irish warriors led by Fionn mac Cumhaill.
                                            Had Finnegan been mentored by Annie Devlin upon his First Death, he would have stayed an ardent patriot and maybe would stil keep his head on his shoulders. Instead, he was mentored by Hugh O'Neil, a man who mentored Devlin and abandoned the ways of nationalism and terrorism for peace between Northern Ireland and Great Britain. O'Neil convinced Seamus that his ways were wrong and told him that Ireland would never achieve peace with guns. So Seamus became a peace activist and unfortunately was captured by agents of Nikola Tesla who took his head, as part of his gruesome experiments on Immortals and Quickenings.

With Jews of Norway being gassed immediately upon arrival in the death camps, our best guest is he got murdered immediately upon arrival, his body to be burnt beyong recovery in a crematorium. This is a safe guest, however he could have recovered before the arrival to the ovens and then been subjected to medical experimentation like that other immortal in Auschwitz. We cannot be sure since his Watcher was also arrested and reported M.I.A

                                            The Ten Tigers of Canton were a group of ten Chinese martial artists from Guangdong (Canton), China who lived in the late Qing Dynasty (1644–1912). They were said to be the best fighters in southern China at the time. Much of their existence has been embellished by folk legends and stories passed down from generation to generation. All of them were immortals, gathering as one single unit to become supernatural heroes of China in the neverending war of good vs evil. While their stories were embellished, they were a squabbling, rag-tag band of misfits who got killed by the Game one by one until only two remained by the time of the Immortals War.

                                            Wong Ching-Hoh and his twin brother Yan-Lam fought the British forces during the Second Opium War in 1860, they became the two firt of the group to be killed by the Immortal Maiden.
                                            In 1885,

                                            Wong Kei-Ying joined the Black Flag Army during revolutionary war against the French Empire; he challenged a French soldier named François Marchette and lost his head.
                                            Lai Yan-chiu retired from the Game in Lhasa, Tibet, where he was confronted and killed by one of the group's major enemies,Immortal Maiden during the 1929 invasion of Tibet by China.
                                            Leung Kwan joined the Tongs by the early 20th century, become their most feared and trusted lieutnants, until he was killed in battle by May-Ling Shen in 1959
                                            So Chan disguised his activities as a vigilante behind a facade of permanent drunkenness and was targeted by huntress Krimkaj Chamlong in 1962
                                            So Hark-fu was one of the immortals kidnapped by Nikola Tesla's henchmen and subjected to painful electrical experiments before Tesla mercifully took his head in 1967. He had become a martial arts instructor, trying to keep the Ten Tigers legacy thriving.

                                            Chow Tai was last seen in Canada, a Lieutnant of the Canadian reserve army, training local guerillas to resist Japan Imperial army occupation. He was killed in 1944 by Matsuhiro Kanagawa.
                                            Chan Cheung-Tai, better known as Chang or Wayne Chang, became an amoral mercenary and assassin eventually joined the international group HISS before being invovled in the Immortals War. He died in 2012 against Kir Bulchyev of the Immortals of Mother Russia.
                                            Tam Chai-kwan was last seen in Cordoba, Spain, in 2012 where he fought his last battle against Radu Cozma.

                                            Civilian refugee fleeing persecutions in Burma,
                                            found and mentored by Khadiga while seeking the
                                            company of a prostitute in Daulatdia

                                            In 2017, Khadiga felt the presence of an Immortal in the brothel-city, but that wasn’t one of the women or one of the girls working in the place, rather a customer not aware of his own Immortality who had been killed recently durign the persecutions against his minority, Karim Raschid, a Rohingya Muslim from Burma. Khadiga took him apart and had to explain to the disbelieving man the rules of Immortal life and the Game, the Gathering. Not all persecuted minorities produce innocent people with goodness in their hearts ! Karim Raschid likes young women, even young girls, and he makes the most of it in the brothel-town of Daulardia. Barely one year in Immortality, we do not expect him to live out the decade as he is too busy with girls to think about training with the sword. Not that Khadiga who found him ever bothered to train him seriously. She is too busy catering to the girls and to the women and she has few sympathies for the men who take advantage of their living conditions. Eventually, she disposed of the man discreetly, immortal-style.

                                              Jong Dong-Hong, in those days a mercenary sword

                                              What a fierce little fighter she was ! No challenge too little or too big for her ! After provoking every capable fighterss of Korea, Lim Jao-hee decided her homeland was too little for her, little fish, so she went swimming in bigger ponds, no even afraid of the sharks playing games she could never fathom. To her, the Far East was her playground and she only wanted to entertain herself, to relive herself from the crushing boredom of immortals life. And what better way to do so than playing the Game ? The difference beign that she never killed her quarries, like those fishermen who let their preys fell, she kissed and jumped on her male opponents after defeating them, giving them the night of their life. She was lucky didn't didn't cross swords with the like of Matsuhuro Kanagawa in Japan, or she would have finished her travels in Japan. Her untimely death against Safiya Khan in China has been proven wrong by Eastern Asia research.

She mentored a new immortal, Yoon Hwa-Soo.

                                                Lidio Valora first appears on Watcher records being mentored by the infamous Bartholomew of Wessex. He was seen regularly seen operating on both the mortal and immortal scenes as an investment banker diverting funds from the British Army during the war against Spain, WWI and WWI. He was reported to have funded the Spanish Cabal and gone in conflict against the SIS and later against th Knights of Charlemagne. A shadowy figure, Lidio lived in Southern Europe, living off funds accumulated during those terrible years, his mind unencumbered by the moral dilemnas or profiting from the suffering of the 50 Millions people killed or missing during last war.
                                                Lidio Valora, who disappeared from Madrid at the beginnign of the war, reappeared in Angola as a businessman in oil production; the Portuguese ironically sought his fortunes in a land his people originally conquered and exploited, before moving to Braga, Portugal where he was located by Maria Do Carmo Correja’s Watcher.

                                                Fu Kang-ho keeps oit 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 which is why he settled in Abuja, Nigeria, joining the local Chinese community.

                                                After one year here in Abuja, Fu Kang-ho got wind of the People’s Protectorate’s passing and suddenly the Immortal packed his back and went back to Beijing, leaving his business to his Nigerian associates. I thnki he was as much relieved of the Zodiac Immortals’ passing as he was of going back the China.

                                                I heard about the dreaded Dark Quickening that turns a good immortal over to the forces of darkness, it consummates them utterly. I also heard of the Wendigo legend, the dark beast posessing those who commit the ultimate sin before the eyes of God : eating human flesh. Even under harsh conditions like beign trapped in a snow storm, it is a sin, it goes against every rules of the civilized world. And I wonder if the Wendigo truly posses him or if at some point Matthieu Devost killed an Immortal after a fight we aren’t aware of and was possessed by the Immortal’s power. Once a decent fellow, Devost became a crazed killer, leaving a trail of dismemebered bodies behind him. Matthew of Salibury was after him, I heard.
                                                Appius Lepidus Baro also was on the trail of Devost, but Donald Black Bear got to him first, later proving to be possessed by the Wendigo like Devost before him. Black Bear is on the loose but I shudder when I think of an ancient and powerful immortal like Baro under the thrall of a Dark Quickening with the unnatural hungers possessing the mind of Devost, and now of Black Bear.

                                                  A tad too many deaths in the last eighteen years, those characters are interestign enough to deserve another go. This postponees the final Gathering to the next twenty years at least. And who knows how many more characters we will create in the near future ? (wink!)

                                                  And before you ask, the Immortals War remains untouched. God knows I reworked it enough to make it a coherent, interestign story !

                                                  This day, I must close the Chronicle of my charge, the great poet Solomon ben Judah, who vanished two years ago in Damascus. For those past two years I have been relentlessly looking for him but to no avail. Solomon is missing, possibly killed facing one of the immortals living in Damascus circa 1851 : Farid al'Zafir, Iman Fasil, Isra of Algiers.
                                                  Solomon was an outstanding poet and writer in medieval Spain and was fortunate enought tot be mentored in poetry by Achilles of Troy himself who latter taught him swordsmanship when he was murdered by a jealous rival. During eight hundred years, Solomon illuminated the Middle East and Renaissance-era Europe with his poetry, how fortunate the mortals were to know such a poet ! And what greatness he gave to the world ! I live in the hope that Solomon didn't die against one of the Damascus immortals and that he is living peacefully somewhere away from the Game.

                                                  Zabibah re-appeared on the Immortals Scene which she may never have left, serving as mistress to the President of Egypt. In the 2018 presidential election, Sisi faced only nominal opposition which he dispatched through political assassination or other means. He was helped by his mistress who told him what to do and now she rules over Egypt and may have been a secret agent of Memnet-Ra as once suspected by Watcher research. This is a clever, lethal woman who is expected to be present at the time of the Gathering lest she faces old ennemies such as Kashta of Nubia and Sit-Hathor Iunet.

                                                  Gordon Byrne learnt a lot of things in Japan under Ninja Master Kintaro, aka Hattori Hanzo, and brought his knowledge of the Nija world to Africa where he shaped and trained his own commando of Africa-born ninja assassins who performed political assassinations for ten years in various African republics, the last of which right in the middle of the Congo Civil War. Estelle Malembo was operating in Brazzaville in Congo and faced Byrne’s commando, but this is a woman trained in jungle guerillas and she did quite well against Gordon Byrne’s men before finally tracking him down to his lair where he was nowhere to be found.

                                                  For Marc Mariano it was a difficult task to put Argentina people in front of the sordid past of slave trade but not impossible, after all the Afro-Argentinas weren’t born in Latin America, they had been victims of deportation and massacres as much as the Jews in Europe. Mark worked hard and made a lot of ennemies among people who ddn’t want to be remembered.

                                                  Christiane has done very well in the Game, as well as putting her mark in the history of women in sports, pionnering the career of many women in activities such as horseriding, boxing, balloon flight, ice skating, volley bal and many others, showing to a male world that women have been worthy competitors ever since Kynista, a Spartian princess, won a race in the Olympic Games of 396 BC. One of the few immortal women to survive in the Game, Christiane had to fight off the utter contempt and hatred of countless men (both mortals and immortals) who viewed her as nothing more than target practice. The 'target practice' had centuries to hone her skills and to make herself a wel-deserved place in the world and might surprise everybody when she finds herself among the last surviors who will fight to the finish for the legendary Prize. In any case, she will be remembered as the immortal woman who had Nike gave her name to an ew brand of running shoe, the 'Swoopes Shoe'.

                                                  Christianne Krause wanted to put her mark on the 2017 Marathon of London and she was quite a success, finishing among the twenty first runners, but the Game is ever-present and when she faced Grant Makim she was already exhausted after so much runnings. She offered to answer his challenge later, but Grant is a relentless killer who knows no delay. Christianne was one of the best fighters in the Game but somehow even the best lose their fire after centuries of playing. When she killed Fernao Gonçalves in Brazil, she decided ot retire from the Game. Grant Makim wouldn’t allow her some peace and he proved the best with a sword when he faced the Austrian woman. Fortunately, mortals interfered and he was forced to leave, snarling and swearing a rematch.

                                                  In the Game, the first victim is innocence, the innocence of children killed too soon, reborn to hunt or be hunted. Kenneth, Bossart, the Coyoteros are prime example of it as is Pilar Gonçalves from England who was taught by Jade el-Amin to use her innocent features as an advantage. Jade and Amanda were similar in all things, including the manner they mentored youg immortals. Trickery, deceit, lies, murder. Ever since her first death, Pilar has been killing her fair shaire of immortals, a lot of them wanting to use her, but some who weren’t evil. Still she killed, little by little becoming like Kenneth. Her last quarry was Harry Houdini the master escapist who saw clearly through her game and wasn’t above killing an immortal woman hiding behind the face of an innocent child. When Pilar saw her game was up she vanshied in a puff of smoke, litterally : a trick taught by Jade el-Amin.

He is well aware he is swimming in waters filled with shark, some of them bigger than others. But still, he has found some peace, away from the threats of Machiavelli and Mocenigo, both of whom have been dealt with by Samantha August in 1997. Edelray got away with his head and a comfortable sum of money siphoned off Machiavelli's wealth. So far, his life is good, and he even takes the time to take fencing instruction to make sure his head remains on his shoulders. It is a risky business to maange the Yakuzas money so he better beware : Kobayashi the vigilante is on the look out for any Immortal living on the fringes of the Law.

It's the riggs, or living in a cabin in the mountain. Next thing you know, an immortal will be living in an orbital station to avoid those of his kind !

                                                  In 1987, the First Intifada (uprising) of the Palestinian people took place in Cisjordania and in the Gaza Bank against the state of Israel; its repression caused 1300 dead among the Palestinians, thousands of wounded,and led to the relaunch of peace negociations between Israel and Palestine in 1993. Since those negocations proved Inconclusive, a second Intifada erupted in 2000, and this time the Palestinians used less pacifical means to demonstrate their anger toward Israel's regimen : guns, bombs and suicide attacks were used, while Israel lauched a full-scale war on the Palstinians, including assassinations on knows activists. In 2001, the Second Intifada made 859 Palestinian victims and 185 on Israel side. Among the Israelians, a minor immortal : Colonel Alan Ish-Shalom, killed with three other Israeli officers by a suicide bomber, while he was on assignment to 'pacify' the region of Ascalon, actually secretly charged with killing two important figures of Palestinian activism. He may have not been beheaded but his severe wounds put him out of comission for a long time.

                                                  • In the Bronze Age, there existed powerful villains such as the Kurgan and the Four Horsemen of the Apocalypse. But there were also heroes.
                                                    Around 1000 BC, in the Kingdom of David, ancient Israel, Immortal Dyonisius the Aeropagite gathered a cadre of Immortal men (and women disguised as men) to champion the Kingdom of David and protect their king. David is the young shepherd who challenged and killed the giant Goliath and was protected by Dyonisius from an early age before becoming a favorite of King Saul. In adulthood h became king, conquered Jersualem and took the Ark of the Covenant into the city, those deeds acompnished with the help of twelve powerful Immortal warriors.
                                                    While several texts down the ages state that "King David 's Mighty Warriors" numbered between 37 to 53, there was a core of twelve Immortals, plus Dyonisius, under the identity of Eleazar Ben Dodai, who trained and supervised 25 to 41 more men, all mortals… or otherwise, i.e pre-Immortals or Immortals. Watcher Research allows to identify the following Immortals as Dyonisius's Mighty Warriors as well as describe the different and separate fates befalling them.
                                                    The Mighty Warriors also took a stand against the Four Horsemn after their leader, Kronos, killed a close associate of Dyonisios, Abraham of Ur, a community leader and an ancient Immortal.

                                                    Zananzash body was found beheaded by his Watcher, evidences of a Quickening all around with his cannabis fields burnt to the grounds by the powerful Quickening signalling his passing. Several suspects come to mind like Silas and Shamsi-Adad of Assyria, but we have no concluqsive proof they ever challenged Zanazash. The neo-Hittite Immortal was the first drug-dealer/pusher of the Immortal world, prescibing recreative drugs to Immortals in need of means to sustain the courage and passion they needed in the Game. Even virtous Aganesthos of Tiryns wasn’t above asking “special medication” from him. Zananzash made several ennemies, like Rebecca and Achilles of Troy who hated seeing past friends and allies poison themselves with magic mushrooms and opium sold by the Hittite Immortal, so it is likely a benevolent Immortal decided to dish out justice to bring equilibrium to the Game.
                                                    The Quickening which destroyed Zananzash’s fields was a favor to the Immortals community. Unfortunately, Immortals and mortals learnt from him over the centuries and his legacy spread over the world, poisoning today’s youth.

                                                    During the Iron Age, Ekron was a border city on the frontier contested between Philistia and the kingdom of Judah. Records of the Neo-Assyrian Empire also refer to Ekron. The siege of Ekron in 712 BCE is depicted on one of Sargon II's wall reliefs in his palace at Khorsabad, which names the city.
                                                    Records of Bostar's existence are due to Zenobia's conversation with Methos at the time of the Bronze Age collpse when sea-faring marauders led by the Four Horsemen brought about the end of the Hittite, Mycenaean and Mitanni kingdoms. Ramesses III (whom Methos served at this time) comments about the scale of the Sea Peoples' onslaught in the eastern Mediterranean, stating that it was less military operations than movements of large populations, by land and sea, seeking new lands to settle, terrorized as they were by the Horsemen. As for Bostar, he has been cross-identified in Memnet-Ra's journals as a quarry of Tizkar of Sumer.

She was beheaded in duel by Lalica who suffered a personality alteration from the heavy Quickening she received, turning her into an agressive player of the Game. Like Lalica, she hid her feminine beauty behind male garbs ans usually avoided fighting those of her kind, preferring to let the Game be handled by younger immortals such as Lalica.

                                                    I won against Parthos of Aram fair and square, he owned sixty gold coins but he wouldn’t pay up. No one likes a sore loser.He even accused me of cheating, pretending I gave drugged water to his horses, riight !
                                                    When he challenged me to a fight, he found how a Horseman can deal sore losers and tried to recoil from the fight, but I wasn’t in the mood to let this slide and I went for he kill. I don’t regret not having spared his head, this was an Immortal with a solid reputation as a player of the Game who knew what he risked when he challenged others of his kind, and if I hadn’t taken his head, it would have been some other Immortal to be sure.

                                                    Xanthia of Miletus once referrered to the fabled Samson, killer of Philistines with an ass’ jaw, as a fellow immortal and one murdered by the God of Time (in her own words). These tantalizing words allow us to probe in the origins of Samson the Israelite and to cook up a bio for him, albeit incomplete.
                                                    With Kronos often referring to himself as the God of Time it was easy to pin the blame of Samson’s death on the former Horseman – what a formidable immortal for him to kill ! – and to find a likely corcuimstance of First Death for him, when he angrily brought down a Phillistine temple with his bare force muscles and force of will. All the rest is only conjectural, no mentions of him have been found in the Ancient Chronicles archives sop far, but we do hope to build a more completeChronicle for the man once defeated by the sensual and dangerouns Delilah.

                                                    The ancient immortal Haiim of the Twelfth tribe several times referenced to his teacher as being ‘Yonathan the Israelite’, an Hebrew soldier who met his First Death defending the precious Ark of the Covenant from the Philistines in 1050 BC, thus marking him as an historically significant immortal. Although his chronicle is rather sparse, as are the chronicles of ancient immortals, who may place his final death in 620 BC in the Kingdom of Judea when Ahaziah of Ramoth-Gilead challenged him for reasons lost in time and killed him.
                                                    The tale of his final battle and of his fights against Artamanya of Ascalon and Natupolassor were found in ancient scrolls, carefully preserved for posterity along the centuries. However, we are only sure of the year of his final death. Also, given the name he chose for himself as ‘Ben Abraham’ (son of), we may ascertain that he was mentored by the legendary Abraham of Ur, a Mesopotamian immortal born in the early Bronze Age of the Far East.

                                                    Research in the fortress of Mamnet-Ra allowed to find clues on the existence of six more immortals from truly ancient times, including two disciples of Oromedon of Urkesh and a songstress; the keeper of the Ark of the Covenant also related to Xanthia of Miletus; a chief of archers in Babylon related to the legendary Natupolassor; the first harlot in immortals history and a homewrecker andfinally a Kassite immortal briefly mentioned in an erarlier chronicle of Methos.
                                                    Those five immortals are recorded as missing because there are no clues on their final fates, though we can guess they must have been targeted by Memnet-Ra and/or by Tizkar of Sumer.

                                                    Rabbi Haiim sensed the presence of the Chameleon woman naming herself Ibn al-Talia, after the last immortal she challenged and killed. Knowing the reputation of the woman, he sought him out, on this most sacred of place - a holy city ! - and gave his challenge. My heart is divided : as a woman, the exploits of the Chameleon fill my heart with pride, as a Watcher, I tremble for the life of my charge : Haiim is a fighter, but also one of the oldest of his kind, at least two thousand years old, and thus a most important immortal.
                                                    One who witnessed the rise and fall of the Pharaohs of Egypt, who challenged the ancient Xanthia of Miletus - "Rebekah" - to whom he gave his true name in ancient Hebrew - Haiim "the living".
                                                    Haiim has been a traveller and a fighter for centuries, a prodigy of the sword, a force to be reckoned with : he clashed swords with the Kurgan, studied philosophy with the wise Tak Ne of Egypt, fought the Romans side by side with the great Gideon. Surely he will not lose in battle against that upstart who keeps stealing the names, clothes and swords of those she kills.
                                                    I am waiting, as all Watchers are boung to do, praying for the voctory of the great Haiim.

                                                    Inconclusive fight against Natupolassor

                                                    In 728 BC, Jamshed of Assyria was challenged to a fight by Magog of Ashur, whose final death by the blade of 'Orpheus' was well-documented. Since Orpheus wasn't the killer of Magog, it impled that Orpheus's murdered couldn't be Iphigenia either which allowed Watcher historians to place the immortal Proteus as the culprit behind those immortals deaths. Jamshed was a mercenary sword in Armenia at the time of his death and his last word, before his head fell were 'your turn next day, shapechanger !' Proteus was thus recorded as having killed seven immortals, each time taking their identities. Case closed.

                                                    There is a brief mention in the scrolls of Memnet-Ra’s journals of how he offered a postion to Menuas of Urartu as a member of the Zodiac Brotherhood and was denied by the proud immortal who stated that he would never betray Inyotef and Magos of Ur. Memnet-Ra laughed at him and stated that soon the heads of Magos and Inyotef would roll – indeed they did in the middle of the 6th century BC – and his dominion over mortal kind would be insured. Menual challenged the Egytpian immortal, feeling confident in his sword skills but was overmatched by the ancient Egyptian. We do not know much about Menuas, but Magos and Inyotef wanted to bond with any ancient immortal they could find in the Near East coutnries in order to create an alliance against the ever-growing influence of Memnet-Ra over the immortals of the known world, even as few in numbers as they were. Eventually, it is Achilles of Troy who suceeded in doing this with the immortals he gathered in a bid to take Ra’s operatiosn down wxhen he took the Zodiac Brotherhood out in 203 BC.

                                                    When savage warrior Beadwhyrd of Ely killed the mysterious monk of Trent in 679, somehting must have happened to his psyche because he discarded his weapons his armors, forsook n entire lifetime of warfare and secluded himself in a monastery, never to play the Game again - with the expection of that Saxon knight in 745, legitimate defense of his monk brothers. The incident of 679 is akin to the experience lived by Darius and others of their kind over the centuries : were a Dark Quickening turns heroes into rempaging villains, 'Light Quickenings' turn warriors and villains into men of peace, seemingly. While the DQ incidents have been proven conclusively to exist, the LQs are so far based on theories, yet viable ones. We shall never know, unlike with Darius, how Beadwhyrd would have evolved over the centuries thanks to the interference of Ragnar Danneskjold, the accursed Viking who raided Lindsfarne Monastery, killined al present, desecretated the place and finally took thehead of the Briton immortal. And the so-called Light Quickening wasn't even passed on Ragnar, he remained a villain and plunderer through and through.

                                                    Uriah the Hitttie was a married man when he joined King David's Mighty Warrior and it turns out his wife Bathsheba had an affair with King David and bore the King a child. The King tried to hide his adultery by having Urriah abandon his position beside him and re-join his wife so they could sleep together, thus passing the child as Urriah's but Urriah's was on the frontline in wartime, and his honor commanded him to not leave his position.The infuriated king ordered his men to stay clear from Urriah and thus sentenced him to death. It was a temporary death for Urriah who came back from the field of battle to ravaged the kingdom, causing many deaths, including the King's child, David asked God forgiveness by touching the Ark of the Covenant, and thus a miracle came : the drought stopped as if it neaver had been. As for Urriah, he left the Kingdom, never to be seen again while his treacherouus wife eloped with King David and later born him a legitimate son who became King Solomon.

                                                    In 480 BC, before he mentored the great Cleophon of Athens, Mepholus fought an Inconclusive fight against the immortal Kaushmalaku, a warrior of undetermined background who ended his chronicle against Kyra of Spartan Thermopylae, during the Roman-Syrian war. Metopholus was a likely identity of Methos, sicne Kaushmalaku adressed to him as ‘Death on a Horseback’ after some ancient scroll found in Aia Minor, depicting the incident.

                                                    Anatellon, 1st century AD

                                                    Two hundred years before Amalettu the first Watcher started writing the chronicle of the legendary Gilgamesh, there were few immortals walking the earth, whose existence are to be found recorded in tiny and obscure fragments of carefully preserved chronicles : Inyotef, the oldest immortal of Egypt, Methos the oldest living immortal and Abraham of Ur who allegedly survived the great flood in times when Ur was the richest city in Sumer. This would be in 2807 BC, at a time a comet-triggered megatsunami ravaged entire parts of the known world.
                                                    Legends want Abraham to have survived this terrible flood and transmitted the Stone of Methuselah from one immortal to another; until it landed in the hands of Aganesthos and then of Xanthia of Melitus. According to Xanthia (known to us as Xanthia of Melitus), Abraham of Ur did exist and safeguarded the stone of Methuselah for posterity when the comet hit, according to what Rebecca disclosed to her most trusted students.
                                                    The other proof we have of Abraham’s existence is a conversation between Prophet Elijah and the young Greek immortal Anatellon when Anatellon asked who was the oldest immortal : Elijah mentioned that Abraham of Ur certainly was the oldest confirmed, forgetting one named Methos and possibly ignoring the existicence of Inyotef.
