  • I approve of the changes you've made to the Black Friar breakout storyline, Gardner. The basics are the same with Eadwulf still taking out Alfgar from a distance. And Meghan still met her end anyway at the hands of another escapee a few years later.

    And the Gathering having been started by the Immortals War is ironic considering that was Memnet-Ra's plan all along. He may have perished but it seems his legacy lives on....

      Date : 8 February 2014
      Place : Madrid
      Victor : Harry Houdini
      Watcher : Marisol Izquierdo

      Background
      Original cultural affiliation : Iberian Gypsy
      Born : 1786; Southern Spain
      First death : 1798; Perished in circus fire set upon
      by thieves
      First teacher : Jade el-Amin
      Known past associates : Jade el-Amin
      First recorded sighting : 1798. Liverpool, England
      Found and mentored by Jade el-Amin, at this time
      a circus acrobat

      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. Needless to say Houdini had to leave Madrid as fast as possible, relocating to Southeast Asia after the local police found the body of Pilar. He couldn't afford to have the body of a child linked to him.

      Place : Seattle WA
      Victor : Richie Ryan

      The lost little lamb named Sherilynn Wolpher came after Richie Ryan asking for his help, the bad man was after her, he killed her Immortal friend and she was in danger of being killed. Richie Ryan maybe an eternal teenaged boy but his is not Immortal to lose his senses over a girl like this ! Especially not after meeting the likes of Felicia Martins who tried to take his head twice ! Sherilynn was in cahoots with projecting empath John Garrick and did his bidding, both Immortals forming a lethal tag-team against those of their kind. They hoped to clear the way in Seattle with Ryan's death. But Richie wised up and took the girl's head before John got his. The empath did his best to drive Ryan crazy with disturbing visions, with nightmarish fantasies projected into his mind but Ryan has seen it all. John Garrick is no more. When he came after Ryan, he expected an easy kill but it was the red-head teen who put the Englishman to his final resting place.

      Place :
      Victor :
      Watcher : Research, Southern Europe

      She was called the bear woman by her men, because of her switching moods and the way she ferociously defended her cubs, a tribe offoster children born in the 14th century who followed her everywhere and whom she trained as spies, saboteurs and assassins infiltrating ennemies lines in warfare. She was even thought to have been a past identity of legendary Kellistra because of her former alias of Kallistrate
      and the fact Kellistra once called herself Ursual Katz, seemingly a dead giveaway. However, Kallisto was found to have been born in the Nicopolis Theme of the 12th century and was identified as a past disciple of Seraphina of Rome. So much for the Kellistra/Kallisto theory.
      Kallisto disappeared during the Byzantine civil war of 1357 with her children and was never heard from again.
      What could turn an heroine and mother into such a ruthless killer ? If she lost her children/tribe to the Game it may have broken her heart to the extant she lost touch with her humanity. Since she re-appeared in 2014 she has been playing theGame withabandon, seemingly not feeling one thing. Even Safiya Khan has a life of her own. Kallisto... just plays the Game. So sad/

      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 whatkilled 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 barren 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. With nothing to left she sought to challenge Immortals in the Game, hoping the Final Prize would give her the ability to have children of her own. Foolish woman ! She did a huge mistake when she challenged Amestris of Khotan, a woman protected by her bodyguard and friend Mei-Li Choe. The Sacred Order thrives and nothing can prevent it from achieving its goal of preserving mankind's history and knowledge.

      Sau Bau Gyi
      Roster of Immortals Status : Deceased
      Date : 8 September 2015
      Place : Outskirts of Sagaing Monastery
      Victor : Louisa Law-Yone

      Once a warrior, mass murderer, serial rapist and killer of women and children, Sau Bay Gyi was so feared and hated on the South Asian continent that his enemies were too numerous to count and there has been a fair number of immortals coming at the doors of his monastery, requesting his head on a silver plate. But Sau Bau Gyi made peace with his ghosts and accepted that the evil immortal he once was had disappeared forever, all this thanks to the teachings of Hsien-Tsiang, one of he most peaceful immortals on Earth, the Darius of Southeast Asia.
      His latest conflict came in 2015 when a Mon immortal challenged him for crimes committed against her people, and this time he was ready to surrender, but his friend Maya Sokhit wouldn’t allow it and she convinced Law-Yone to let bygones be bygones. Such a gesture coming from a woman once murdered by the Khmer Rouges during the Camabodian Genocide speaks volumes of the kindness and generosity coming from this man who doesn’t advocate violence and has stated that no Buddhist can be a nationalist : Buddhism ignore races, states or religions. Or the Game.. Unfortunately Law-Yonne sought justice and killed the Buddhist.

      Date : 12 September 2015

      Victor : Maya Sokhit

      Louisa Law-Yone never forgave Sau Bau Gyi for the part he mistakenly took in the massacre of the Mon people by the Burmese in the 18th century and for three hundred years hunted him al though Southeast Asia : Thailand, Laos, Vietnam when the war raged on, she allied herself with Immortal Maiden to seek him out in the monasteries of Lhassa, Tibet, to no avail, she could never find him. Sau Bau Gyi is a man who hides behind many walls but those walls allow him to make penances for countless sins he has on his conscience, something his friend Maya Sokhit understands well. However she knew that if Sau Bau Gyi allowed Mon to take her revenge, to kill him in combat, it would solve nothing : it wouldn’t heal Louisa’s wounds and a good man would be removed from a world bereft of Darius. A wild card, Maya Sokhit challenged Louisa after she murdered the defenseless monk and gave her eternal peace.

      Victor : Safiya Khan

      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.

      Archelaus and Thanos of Athens hit it off in 2004 and never left each other since. They celebrated the end of St. Paul's cathedral in London in 2011 right in the middle of the Immortals War, a project Archelaus started in 1996 but had to quit a few years later when people noticed he didn't seem to age. Archelaus didn't believe in cosmetics like in the previous century so he got out of London in 2004 and met Thanos in Athens during Summer's Olympics. They met several of their kind during the competitions, including several players of the Game, but a truce had been decided for the duration of the event. Beside, Thanos was in charge of security and the main enforcer of the truce.

      Roster of Immortals Status : Deceased
      Date : 12 July 2018
      Place : Thessaloniki
      Victor : Deoneces of Sparta

      Katherine arrived to late to save the life of her son Adam, murdered in cold blood by Kallisto of Nicopolis, the young pre-Immortal didn't reach his Immortality and would never achieve his full potential. Not that he would have enjoyed it much. How could Kallisto murder Adam is beyond us, the former mother hen is gone forever, replaced by just another headhunter. Katherine had only two days to bury her son, she felt devastated and was lucky to have Deoneces and Kyra of Sparta by her side at the funeral. Seraphina was here too, as well as Xanthia from London. After the burial it was time for revenge but Katherine was in no shape to fight and Deoneces knew it. However, Kate took the time to sharpen her sword. Grief would come later. Now was the time of the Gathering and doomed or not, she would avenge her son.
      Her battle against Kallisto of Nicopolis was a furious one and as Deoneces predicted, Kallisto prevailed. Buit not for long.
      Deoneces came after the warrior-woman like a fury and took her out of the Game; he grienved for his woman, for her son but also for hte old friend who had turned into an ennemy whose soul had been lost to the Game long ago. Watchers predicted that what could befall a colossus like Deoneces would be the deaths of Kyra, Seraphina and Katherine, his three sirens. Katherine is no more. Can Seraphina and Kyra survive and make sure Deoneces does ?

      The Marvel Brothers introduced themselves to John Stoppard in 1711 as survivors of the Roanoke colony, once devastated by local Indians,most of the men killed with surviving women and children taken as captives and forced to assimilate in the Chesepian Indian tribe. TheImmortal who mentored them was an Indian healer and wise man named Kol T’ek who lived at this time with the Indians as a local chef named Eyanoco and taught them of their Immortal heritage, to be wary of white men and women armed with swords who would come after their heads.
      For three hundred years the Marvel Brothers lived on the fringes of civilization, building one community after another, fending off attacks from Indians, from outlaws and from the odd Immortal. Always standing together.

      Victor : Swenja Baatz


      Was it Carter Wallan joke that rubbed Lootje De Groot the wrong way ? Carter's puns are often bad and can be misunderstood. He should have known the reputation of Lootje, a woman with a dark, twisted sense of humor who doesn't like being mocked and felt the youngish Immortal was humoring her. The friendly overture was addressed to the wrong kind of lady and soon the pleasant evening ended with a fatal confrontation between the two Immortals. Once united in a common goal against the pawns of Mement-Ra durign the Immortals War, now led like lemmings by the madness of the Gathering, the fight ended with Lootje victorious. Carter died on his knees, a demonstration that the woman is indeed the deadliest of the species.

      Hazeem Al Bachrim had barely the time to mourn before he tracked Lootje De Groot to her lair where he was met by Lootje's companion, Swenja Baatz. Hazeem intended to avenge his companion but his resolve was lacking. Carter was dead, what was there for him to fight ? Before Swenja's sword, the Ashanti remembered the failure from the tribal ritual which ended his mortality and he finally understood the folly of spending centuries playing the Game endlessly. As his head rolled on the ground, he may have contended himslef with his only prize : to be reunited with Carter forever in the afterlife.

      Messalina of Rome didn't last long against Deoneces of Sparta after she killed the second of his "sirens". Seraphina was expected to be among the contestants of the Final Gathering, however, while a superb fighter, Messalina bested her. She must have trained harder than Seraphina did because she displayed superb fighting kills we didn't expect from her. After all, Messalina was never truly a player of the Game. How she did fight sometimes, if only to savor the odd Quickening or to rod herself from an an enneny but this was a surprise.
      She didn't enjoy her Quickening for long, however. Deoneces challenged her but his grief nearly cost him his head; His concentration looked gone. Kyra was ready to interfere, if only to shut the Roman bitch's viperine mouth but Deoneces denied his fellow Spartan and finally won.

      Deoneces and Kyra buried Seraphina, but they will need each other if theri want to be the survivors of hte Gathering.

      • Wow, Gardner! Some big scalps being taken this year. It seems the Gathering is in full force. The amount of Immortals losing their heads already has severely depleted the population. So many Immortals have died since the Immortals War, more than probably in several centuries combined. So many won't see out the 2020s, if any! Lol

        Do you have the backgrounds for the Marvel brothers? They're not on my list.

        Cheers

        • There will be survivors, THERE CAN BE ONLY ONE is but a myth after all, once Memnet Ra's motto. Only One Ra. The big and minor players will kill each other off leaving the neutral and more peaceful Immortals to live and fight another day. Think Magnificent Seven, the movie with Yul Brynner : the farmers won in the end

          Jane Durieux lives in a fantasy world where her lover taught her the pleasures of the flesh, unencumbered by a sense of responsablity, having been taught of the wonders of immortality, that she would never grow old and would have all the time in the world to travel the world, and if the Christian God didn’t welcome her in his paradise, so be it, her immortality was a gift to be savored to its fullest. Two years in a bubble of dreams in Saigon so far, but when will she realise the predatory nature of her lover, Leung Kai-Fai ? When will he ask her to play his own little game of baiting innocent girls in search for players of the Game ? Leung heard of Axel Whittaker’s technique, having nearly been killed by the Norwegian, but this brush with death taught him a definite lesson. And so he began scouring the world in search for young female and male immortals to use and abuse. He may hot have had as many girlfriends and boyfriends as Axel, but he still manages very well and ten years is his usual limit before he lets the mask slip.

          Warren Cochrane had scores to settle with Steven Keane so that's why he took him out of the Game last May, but what come after Frances Drummond ? Because she is an Englishwoman or becauser There Can Be Only One ? No reason for it by the look of it but Cochrane always was mentally unstable and the Gathering made him lose his mind for good : honestly who would try to take on the fabled Crimson Butterfly ? You would need to be insane or desperate to have the power of a major player like Frances Drummond.
          Cochrane is no more, his dreams of winning the independance of Scotland gone forever.

            Sigrid Solvig was living in L.A in 2008 and when she heard one of the Kanwulfsson brothers was living in the City of Angeles she didn't wait long to find the old Viking with whom she had some scores to settle. While not a ravign maniac like Mad Bridget Ingvarsen, she still wanted the head of the man who scorned her centuries ago. Kvasir tried to reason with her but the Kanwulfsson Clan thwarthed many of her schemes over the centuries. The Gathering was near, opportuniaties are made to be seized.

            Nature vs nurture. Even though she may have been an ally of Ravenwood, Sigrid must play the Game and this time she travelled all the way to Anchorag,e Alaska, to confront an opld ennemy, Herimdall Kanwulfsson. Not that Heimdall put much of a fight after the death of his beloved Fjola Gottidatir earlier that year. His heart wasn't in the Game anymore.

May 2013 saw his untimely disappearance after a mineshaft collapse, his body was recovered, minus its head attached to it.

              • Great recent updates, my friend.
                Hazeem and Carter ironically died in a similar fashion to how they perished on the TV show; Carter said something to Richie, who had a short fuse, Richie kills Carter, Hazeem hunts down Richie, runs into MacLeod, who challenges and kills Hazeem to protect Richie (though on the show MacLeod also had a score to settle with Hazeem. Here, Carter says something he shouldn't have to the hot-headed Lootje, who fights and kills Carter, Hazeem hunts down Lootje, finds Swenja, who challenges and kills Hazeem to protect Lootje (don't think there was any score to settle this time though). Symmetry.

                  Intifada, uprising against Israeli rule

                  Victor : Khalida al Najiran

                  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 commission for a long time and Khalida al Najiran’s sword out of the Game permanently.

                  Now the children are free to go where they please. Jason and Olympe decided to train the kids themselves adopting them as their own little family, but those are not innocent children anymore, they had a taste of the Quickening and a strange hunger animate them. A hunger for more. It will take a lot of work and efforts from the Greek couple to curb the pack’s violent tendencies, lest they become as dangerous players of the Game as the Coyoteros of Mexico.

                  Three months later, Jason Samaris and Olympe Dimitrakos are dead, killed by one of the most dangerous players of the Game on the Immortals scene : Safiyah Khan, a woman nothing can stop because Allah guides her hand. She killed two brave people but left a dangerous pack of children behind, taking pity on the young Immortals. She wished them luck and left. For once this is a major mistake from Safiyah : with the ongoing Migrant Crisis the kids will take any route they like to any destination : who knows how long they will last and how many heads will fall before their combined power ?

                  As the children told themselves to Olympe and Jason, they were recruited by Galien and Hekate to hunt those of their kind since the start of the migrant crisis and were given a taste of the Quickening when Hekate killed off an Immortal and allowed the children to share the fallen Immortal’s life essence, making them addcted tot the surge of power. Under the influence of Galien and Hekate they hunted those of their kind and killed at least six Immortals from Middle Eastern countries and Southern Europe before landing in Cyprus. Jason and Olympe were going to be their next quarries.
                  The three elder boys only complied to protect the two young girls who themselves lived through the horrors of war and sexual slavery and became hollow shells, desperate for nurturing and protection. The Cyprus Child Pack makes up a close-knit little family but they are still children – hardened killers, but children nonetheless, not yet corrupted by age and experience on the Immortal scene. Jason and Olympe feel that under the proper guidance, the children may have a chance of living of the next few decades, if only the boys could learn to curb their more aggressive tendancies. The Game doesn’t need another Kenneth or another roving pack like the Coyoteros in Mexico.

                  It’s been difficult to say the least for the Cyprus Child Pack to land in Germany and then to settle in Munich, Bavaria, posing as refugee children under the wing of an humanitarian mission. They hoped to make a new life for themselves and to get some power from local Immortals – not that there are many left alive. As fate will have it they met the Von Arlon Children whom they thought would be easy pickings, managing to kill Isolde and Klaus the two youngest. The Von Arlon are a family of survivors who survived in the Game for seven hundred years, the loss of two of their numbers was a huge shock but also reinforced theor determination to stay alive, to remain a close-knit family.The Cypriot kids didn’t last long against the vengeful children of Kellistra. Their buried Klaus and Isolde and left for Switzerland

                  Watcher : Lewis Bailey

                  Damon Case is now dead. After nearly one thousand years spent playing the Game, living like a walking killing machine, choosing no life other than serving God and taking heads, the grandmaster of headhunting targeted the immortal he should never have targeted.
                  Sulieman al-Rashid was an immortal whose psyche had been erased to be replaced with the mind and soul of Naseeran Kamal, an ancient sorcerer who got the last laugh when al-Rashid killed him ten years ago and survived in the body of the man who killed him. When Damon Case came after him, Kamal warned the ancient monk that he'd become even stronger if he were to lose the battle, but Case didn't listen. And when the Englishman took the Quickening, he screamed as if the grounds had opened beneath his feet and he was suddenly contemplating the darkness that lies wthing his own heart. How did he feel during his last minutess of life, when the Quickening of Naseeran Kamal destroyed his psyche, ending his life ? Did he feel betrayed, somehow, by the God he was sworn to serve ?
                  And when words finally reach Henry of Kent's ears in Los Angeles that his ennemy still lives in some way, his mind replaced with the mind of an evil immortal who is not an active player of the Game, how will he react ? Will he feel relief that he Case is no longer among us, or anger to have been cheated out of his revenge ? Maybe regret ? Regret that the greatest headhunter he had ever had to hunt in one thousand years died by the hand of a conniving sorcerer who very nature is a twist of the laws of immortals nature ? With Case's death, the immortals of Western Asiaern countries may have some peace, for a time. And the Game goes on.

                  Frank Paglione, May 2010

                  Was it Damon Case who came after the ancient Ishtar of Erech or the soul of Naseeran Kamal ? The ancient warlock and Ishtar obviously had somre scores to settle, one doesn't live for thousands of years without making ennemies. Ishtar lived for 3.000 years and Nasreeran for as much time maybe.

                  Lewis Bailey, May 2019

                  From the records of the Tribunal :

                  Gone missing from Watcher records in 1307 when they were fleeing persecutions from King Phiilip IV of France during the massacre of the legendary Templar Knights, George of Lydda and Andrew the Apostle resurfaced on the Immortal scene last year when they killed Eir and Frey Kanwulfsdottir, the two surviving members of the Vinland Immortal Clan. George and Andrew were part of the Seven Champions of Christendom and have been hunting non-Christian, so the Prize may fall in Christian hands. They tried to recruit their surviving brothers Malcus of Ephesus and Seamus of Athlone but were turned down. They threatened that came the time of the Final Gathering, brother would face brother. Meanwhile, they would bring their attentions to Immortals of the Levant.

                  From the Records of the Tribunal

                  If one woman understands the politics of the Western Asia and Palestine better than anyone its Ruth. Her current job in the Israeli government provides her with the opportunity to bring a historical perspective to the region. Although her stance is not popular with many of the hardliners, her practicality and common sense have made her invaluable to the Knesset. Having watched her home destroyed and terrorized by the Romans, makes her sympathetic to both sides. Her seemingly pacifist political stance has cause a major rift between her and Avram Mordecai. She has been distressed by her growing estrangement from Avram who she has been in love with for sometime. I hate to see politics destroy this couple.

                  In 1855, Gilead Bar Shebron killed an Israelite Immortal man whose identity remains unknown to us. The only two missing Israelites on our lists are Judith of Bethulia and Na'amah of Ramah. It is our home none of those women were killed by the Beta Israeli Ethiopian who was a hot-blooded character in the 19th century. Now a teacher, Jacob gives a message of peace to the young generations in the hope the conflicts between peoples of the Levant will be toned down by diplomacy and respect of other people’s beliefs. If he killed Na’amah then he may well have been impacted by her Quickening, in the same way Darius was changed by the Quickening of the Holy Man of Paris

                  What an ironic turn of even that Christianity's best champions were taken down by Ishtar of Erech, the Sumerian goddess of war and love. While Jerusalem is considered a holy city, Andrew and George still brought the violence of the Game to Ishtar who hadn't had a fight in twenty years and was living peacefully. Still, she trains often and her sword is sharp. Andrew and George didn't last long against Ishtar who fought them both at the same time and won a major double-Quickening, so powerful that Jerusalem's Christian community thought the time of the Rapture had come at last. Well, it did come for the two Champions of Christendom.

                  • Still loving your updates, my friend. Nice to hear about Damon Case again. And many previously missing Immortals coming out of the woodwork now the Gathering is upon us....

                    Before my mum passed away i had done some work on a chronicle i was going to post. As you can imagine, it kind of got put on the back burner for awhile. I've taken some tentative steps into completing it. i'm a bit out of practice and still not 100%, but I've given it a go. Hope you like it...

                    First recorded sighting: c 5500 BC, Levant
                    The only pre-Flood Immortal to survive the Great
                    Catastrophe

                    From the Records of the Sacred Order

                    All myths and legends are said to be based on kernels of truth. And according to the Order, one such myth is that of Noah’s Ark. The legendary Noah was, according to the Order, actually an Immortal called Utnapishtim, who was forewarned by Immortal prophetess Enki about the coming catastrophe and urged to survive to preserve their race and the knowledge of the Great Immortal Kingdoms of Atlantis, Hyperborea, Lemuria, and Kunlun. The Ark of the legend was, according to the Order, not an actual ark, but either the written records of those kingdoms (the Order have, according to our Watcher team, acquired these sacred scrolls) or pre-Immortal children of the First Immortal Era. The Sacred Order have confirmed that Utnapishtim survived at least until the first millennium AD before being slain by Kotys the Hunter, who subsequently dropped out of sight until re-appearing as the Order’s hitman, The Apostate.

                    This evidence now means that Darius did not in fact kill the oldest living Immortal of his era since Utnapishtim was still alive at this time (and would have been nearly 8,000 years old!), at least for a few more centuries.

                    • Nice story about this ancient Immortal, Apollo. Are Watchers and Ravenwood aware of the Sacred Order's existence?

                      • Another kill for Amy Ross. More testament to the teaching skills of Henry of Kent who always makes sure his students' sword skills are good enough to match any Immortal except only the most powerful and skilled of their kind.

                        And yes, the Watchers are now aware of the Sacred Order since they've managed to infiltrate the ranks of the Order's mortal scribes and support staff. The inner circle of Ravenwood will be aware that anyone who has sought out the secrets of the Order have all died so only a small group of Watchers and Ravenwood Immortals will have access to this information. The Order have spies everywhere so the least amount of people who know, the better.

                        • So that means Deoneces, Kyra, Drummond, Henry of Kent and Clemont of Haynes know about the Order. Possibly the SIS too, since they are close associates of Ravenwood. I am making the Gathering happen because the Sacred Order is pulling strings : they are preserving mankind's knowledge and want to clear out any Immortal interference, thus an artifically triggered Gathering. The Apostate is designed in advance to become The One, i.e the only one who will serve the order for all eternity.
                          The Sacred Order may be benevolent, but they hijacked the Game and are killing Immortals for their own cause. So this make them the enemy.
                          The Apostate, in likelihood, executed the survivors of the Zodiac Brotherhood before the ZB could rise again : Bernie Crimmins, Johann Faust and Pharamond are dead, though the Watchers cannot prove it. As a matter of fact, I see the Sacred Order as benevolent, righteous VILLAINS.

                          Joe Muhamad was originally born in Algeria, his parents moved in America in 1899 for a better life in Lousiana when he was in his teens. His father was a metalsmith, making beautiful works decorating inns and hostels and making good money for his wife and four children. When WWI erupted, Joe was drafted with millions of other Americans in 1917 and sent to Europe where he was hit by mortal shells on the trenches, losing both of his legs. Unhappy with his life, Joe followed in his father's footsteps, hoping to find achievement in metalworking. He spent the nex twenty years honing his skills until one night in 1939 when young robbers came into his shop looking for a stash of money had with no doubt hidden in his shop. When trying to stop the robbers, Joe was fatally shot and died. That was the end of Joe Muhamad and the beginning of one of rarest immortals to enter the Watchers'Chronicles : an handicapped man, mentored by a lengendary immortal - Marie Laveau - and taught to use a shotgun to parry off Immortals coming after him. And he has been quite apt at using his gun to fend for himself in the Game, waiting for any heahdunter foolish enough to come after an "easy target" like him.
                          After he shot and killed Chrystle Lightning in April – even as unlikely as it sounds – we expected old Joe to be possessed with the same evil that festered in the Indian’s mind, the dreaded Dark Quickening. However that didn’t seem to be the case, Joe seemingly has his own private demons and the DQ’s malevolence didn’t change his character. The same old angry Immortal who unexpectedly met up Richie Ryan on the outsklirts of Seattle. Richie was surprised to meet an Immortal who reminded him of his old friend Joe Dawson.
                          But this wasn’t Joe Dawson and the old Algerian tends to shoot first and ask questions later. His powerful shotgun nearly lopped Richie’s head off who chose to exit the premise. No need to loose one’s head over a temperamental Immortal who doesn’t follow the rules of the Game.

                          • The best villains in any medium, TV, film, literature, are always the ones who see themselves as the heroes of their own story. In my view the best villains are the ones often doing terrible things for what they see as the right reasons. It makes them more interesting as antagonists. Conflicted heroes who become villains through grief, villains who believe their way is the only way to save the world, anti-heroes manipulated into doing bad things by a greater intellect using them for their own ends....all these i much prefer to moustache-twirling villains who do what they do because they're "evil" (a great example of this is the old and new Battlestar Galactica; in the old series Baltar betrayed the human race because, well, he was evil basically; in the new series, Baltar was a bit of an egotist who was seduced by a Cylon agent and unwittingly became responsible for humanity's downfall. He spent the rest of the series flipping from one side to the other purely for selfish reasons; his own self-preservation, and in the end redeemed himself by saving what was left of humanity. As you can tell, a bit of a favourite of mine! Lol)
                            So i can see where you're going with the Sacred Order and why they would believe eliminating the more dangerous Immortals is the right thing to do...

                            However, what the Sacred Order don't know (actually they haven't discovered yet, because it's in those scrolls that Utnapishtim saved from the Flood), is the real reason Enki wanted Utnapishtim to survive: to warn the next generation of Immortals not to make the same mistakes they made. The Great Immortal Kingdoms fell because of Immortal hubris; they believed they knew best, that they were better than mortals. They believed it was their divine right to guide humanity by ruling them, but Enki came to discover that Immortals were meant only to be teachers and guides, to build a better world by benevolently aiding mankind from the shadows, not by manipulating them , but by helping them through their vast experiences of life and history.

                            The pre-Flood Immortals instead built Kingdoms and became rulers and warmongers. They turned on each other and, in the end, an asteroid (was it divine intervention? I'll let you decide!) brought the pre-Flood civilisations to an end. Enki believed the Immortals were responsible for their own destruction because of their arrogance.

                            The Sacred Order, it would seem, are not heeding the lessons of Enki. Arrogance and hubris destroyed the First Immortals. Is history about to repeat itself?

                            Amanda and Nick Wolfe dead? Shock, horror! Lol
                            Admittedly, I'm not too displeased about Wolfe biting the big one. But Amanda? Still, even in the TV series (both Highlander and Raven) she was average with a blade, definitely not on the same level as Duncan MacLeod. But she still outlasted him (and could Duncan's death have held some sway over her willpower in the fight with Swenja?).
                            Mixed feelings here, lol, since i have a soft spot for those bad girls Swenja and Lootje.
                            With Amanda dead, i believe only Joe Dawson, Richie Ryan and Methos are left from the main cast now.

                            • Poor Amy Ross! I really had a sofft spot for the school teacher. A formidable swordswoman for a relatively young Immortal, but in the end probably not quite focused enough to match Chang. Maybe if she'd been a couple of centuries older and with a few more heads under her belt, she might have taken Chang.

                              Still, at least Henry of Kent didn't let Chang gloat for long. Once he had the Chinese Immortal's scent there was really only going to be one winner.

                                Botany has always been a great hobby of Bertric’s. He learned about plants and herbs from Brother Aloyisus the Abbey’s herbalist, when he would stayed after the Crusades. Aloysisus was a great teacher and friend to him and the chronicles of that time tell of the friendship and adventures that they had. He put much of use of herbs and healing on the battlefield. Much of his life was spent as a soldier, guide, or a mercenary. But no matter where he was, when he gets back home he has seeds or cuttings from some plant he has come across.
                                Lately he has been putting his knowledge to use in the lab. Grace Chandel has been pestering him to join her in the lab to help synthesize new medicines from various plants. The work seems to be going well and they seem to be getting on rather well too.

                                Bertric's death by the sword of Carlo Sendaro is the incentive that fueled Grace Chandel's decision to take action against her estrangedf husband and to finally rid the world from him. A divorce immortal-style.

                                Huneric the Vandal set foot in Melbourne, having targeted John Frederick Horrigan of Ravenwood; need the time necessary to digest the accumulated power, memories and knowledge of Hideo Tanaka and Fujita Isei, Huneric lied low, travelling the roads of Australia, bidding his time. One week was enough. When he felt ready, he tracked down Horrigan but didn't have to hunt for long : the Irishman had been warned - as all personnel of Ravenwood - that Huneric the Teuton was on the prowl and anyone could be attacked anyday.
                                The tall, lanky bonde immortal is the master of zen, taking immortal life with a grain of salt and the Game seriously, but not to the point of letting it destroy his soul has it happened to Charles Mako; he has a life in the mortal
                                world, friends, lovers. When the war erupted and immortals died in Australia, Horrigan stood ready to fight; the immortal community he was responsible for was smaller than on the other continents and he felt he made a good sheriff - real shame he had to take out Corey Raines, though. When John Frederick Horrigan and Carl Robinson took out Forrest Gardner and Gabriel Mondotua after four others had died, he realised that maybe he wasn't this good at maintaining order in this part of the world, after all. Not dismoralized, however, Horrigan kept his alliance with Robinson and Curtis.

                                While Robinson and Curtis were away, Horrigan was alone to face Huneric the Teuton. The fight was brutal, the Vandal broke through Horrigan's defense techniques and not once did he let him take an offensive stance in the battle.
                                In the end, the Irishman's head rolled on the ground; his Quickening was strong, but not as powerful as Tanaka's according to his Watcher. Huneric the Vandal left the scene and boarded a plane the following day for South Africa.

                                I suppose we needed Crocodile Dundee on the Immortal scene in Australia, yet another cliché of the Australian myth for the Europeans and Americans who come visit us. Ramsay Munro however is a very serious 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 since we have been following him many Immortals have come after his head and never came back from their safari trip. His sole friend in the Immortal community is 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 and children. A never-ending debate.

                                The old witch wanted to get rid of the Immortal pests but they are the ones who ended her Immortal life.
                                She nearly killed the lot of them circa 1360 when they lived i nGermany and weren't the seasoned wolf pack they are i npresent days. As in the odl Grimm tales they got lost in the Black Forest and foudn the gentle lady with food and warm beds ready for them, not knowing she was killing Immortal children to perform sacrifical rituals for an ancient God she was serving. The Frau Totenkinder wasn't even listed in our records at that time, she first apears in 1360 as an ennemy of Terence of Coventry and Hannah Baran who were hunting her for past crimes committed againt children and arrived in the proverbial nick of time to prevent hte Von Arlon kids from beign slaughtered.
                                The old crone managed to escape and wasn't seen again until she re-appeared in Victorian England, leading an underground cult that was uncovered by the Secret Immortals Services. Again she evaded Immortal justice.
                                As the Gathering finally comes here she was, cornered by her former would-be victims. And that one time, she was the one to end in the oven, burnt to a crisp, her Quickenign received by Benedict.

                                The following text is a poem written by Oppa (Elder Nrother) Eunkyhung of Korea, an ancient immortal who wrote peotry and made a living as a singer and scribe. He showed a great sense of humor and intelligence as well as a certain taste for young immortal women : rather than fighting them, he seduced them and brought them to his bed. The song reached the mortal world and was used by Psy, south-Korean artist whose song became a worldwide success.

                                Born : 9h century BC; Kingdom of Bit-Istar,

                                Iran. Refernced as a shrine keeper by Methos
                                when he took Xanthia of Melitus to Ravansar
                                Spring to cure her of a Dark Quickening

                                After 92 years of hunting his old friend, Metopholus finally caught up to Xanthia in Alexandria the year the city was besieged by the Muslims who ordered the burning of Alexandria’s library. A tragedy for the wise Prisca Negra, a Nubian woman once disciple of Sunda Kastagir, and who sought to preserve the world knowledge, only to see it burnt down. But nothing could save her from pillaging Arabs and from the demented Xanthai who took her out after a brief battle. Did Prisca Negra’s Quickening sane her up ? Or was it Prisca’s innate goodness and widsom which washed away Xanthia’s anger and hate ? When Metopholus found Xanthia, it was as if she was reverting to her old self, but the ancient immortal knew better and took her to Tripolitania, to an ancient shrine located in a cave, where he left her on her own for seven days and nights, until Xanthia finally rid herself from her demons. The shrine was kept by a Muslim friend of his, Fayrul ibn al-Din who made sure Xanthia was kept safe.
                                In the end, Xanthia’s goodness prevailed and she was back to her senses, but befallen with the memories of the good immortals she murdered and of the mortals lives she destroyed during her rampaging years.

                                Helen Bondeville and Allegra Chambers died in simultaneous attacks from the long lost Aoife of Alba and Scathag of Skye
                                who put aside their mutual hatred to strike at the core of the SIS. The SIS belles were good with swords and lasted for
                                centuries in the Game by training hard while the hateful sisterly pair lasted by using manipulations and illusion tricks
                                taught from the witch Cassandra.
                                Helen and Allegra were known for their British sense of fair-play and believed in training and mastery of the sword, one
                                one's emotions to survive against Immortal opponents. A true shame that their last fights confronted them against women
                                known for mind-manipulating their quarries. Allegra and Helen both thought old, dead enemies from the Spanish Cabal
                                and Knights of Charlemagne had come back from the dead to torment them and when they discovered the illusions were
                                created by Immortals, it was too late.

                                Alice Ming's killing by the long lost Sobani Samata was thought unrelated to the deaths of her colleagues from the SIS, but
                                after the later Mini-Gathering in London it is our opinion that the Hellfire Club did recruit the Hindu woman as well as Aoife
                                and Scathag to kill off members of the SIS. The Club's purpose was to break the morale of their surviving friends in the SIS.
                                This was a huge mistake.
                                We didn’t expect Alice Ming to last very long, but she confronted the Chand woman with courage and a will to survive that
                                made the admiration of her male counterparts in the SIS. While not as skilled as Lang Quing or May-Ling Shen, she used
                                scare tactics against Sobani Samata but in the end Samata proved more determined and won.

                                One week after the wanton murders of Helen Bondeville and Allegra Chambers who we are going to sorely miss, Aoife and
                                Scathag went to Salibury where Xanthia of Mleitus spends three months in the year, from the Solstice of September to
                                Christmas' Eve.. The ancient keeper of the Stone of Methuselah is in touch with her ancient Druidic customs and enjoys the
                                peace and quiet of the Stonehenge Monument. A peace that was disturbed by the arrival of her old friends who long ago
                                surrendered them selves to the practice of black magic and became malevolent witches under the tutelage of Cassandra,
                                another ancient rival of Xanthia. Aoife and Scathag chose to set aside their differences during the times of the Gathering
                                and felt the shared power of the ancient "Rebecca of Mycenae" would give them the strength they needed. But what they
                                truly wanted was the power of the Stone of Methuselah and this was another thing Xanthia wouldn't surrender to the two
                                witches.
                                Gentle Xanthia is well known for her sword skills and when it comes to fighting ancient Immortals such as herself, she is
                                utterly diabolical, showing a dark side of herself paralleling Kellistra's in power and fierceness. Aoife used the power of
                                the "voice", Scathag the power of illusion-casting. That wasn't enough. An ancient Immortal like her can resist such tricks.
                                Both women fell by her sword on the outskirts of Stonehenge and it seemed the place itself augmented Xanthia's power
                                and will.

                                By a fortunate occurence, Nuha Kalash was living in Liverpool when she was challenged by Sobani Samata, decidedly
                                determined to see the fina ldays of the Gathering. However, Nuha is as skilled a swordfighter as Sobani demonstrated and
                                the woman who was hired by the Hellfire Club to take out at least one member of the SIS soon was sent to join her
                                departed soulmates of the Chand sisterhood. In later days, Nuha was going to be contacted by the SIS for informations
                                regarding the fate of the Chand and for help against the Hellfire Club. Nuha who had once confronted hte SIS about hte

                                From the Chronicle of Nuha Kalash

                                Evangeline Black was good at picking on defenceless Immortals but she amounted to nothing in front of Xanthia of Melitus'
                                superior skills. When she saw how Aldrich Monk'sz master plan backfired she tried to take the reins of the Club'zs Inner
                                Cirlce and have enryone get out of London, but that was too late. Master tactician Richeard of Mercia mounted a co-joined
                                attack against the Cardinal Lords and after centuries of mutual hatred, it was the end for the Hellfire Club.
                                Theobald Cleaver and Dominic Piper were confronted by Eadwulf and Raymond d'Amboise while Nuha Kalsh confronted
                                Sernea whom she once knew British India era as a snubbish, remorseless killer who viewed the locals with disdain and
                                contempt. And finally the once blood-brothers went at it like roaring lions, each hungry for hte other's Quickening.
                                Richeard of Mercia prevailed as he always did, especially with his quarry only choosing to pick of weaker Immortals.

                                  So, the cold war between the SIS and the Hellfire Club ended in December 2018. With casualties on both sides, as was inevitable. And wasn't it just like Monk to hire others to do his dirty work?
                                  Nice to see the normally serene Xanthia still has a vicious bite....
                                  Richeard finally settles a very old score with his once-blood brother and most likely lays some things to rest.

                                    Victor : Sghair M’Barek

                                    Anans the Spider has never raised a sword against a sister, i.e an Immortal woman, on moral grounds and when playing hte Game only targeted male quarries since she targeted Sunda Kastagir in 1390. When she challenged Sghair M'Barek she faced an Immortal who will do anything to protect his adopted daughter, Bolanile Dallo, giving him an incentive Anansi doesn't have : doing anything to protect your own.
                                    Sghair fought like a demon for the sake of his child while Anansi fought for the sake of playing the Game and little else.
                                    Anansi tried to seduce Sghair but the ancient hunter would listen to none of his enemy's antics and wouldn't be charmed.
                                    Then as Anansi was gaining an advantage, Bolanile interfered in the fight and was brutally slain by Anansi who recoiled in horror in front of what she had done : her sword had nearly decapitated an Immortal child, a woman-child ! This gave Sghair one minute for himself and it was all what he needed. In the end, he said to Anansi, there can be only One and that won't be you!

                                      Thanks for reminding me. I had intended to mention it but forgot because i was engrossed in the SIS/Hellfire Club conflict you resolved.
                                      Good choices for those two places.

                                        exploration of the land

                                        The Black Mamba is a predatory Immortal woman who has been active in one country or another of the Southern part of the African continent, a title held by five separate Immortals in eight hundred years.

                                        The first was Inah Gaetswe, a fearsome spear-wielding Mapungubwe of present Zimbabwe and who led her tribe against the forces of Gavriel Larca during Portugal conquest of South Africa. The second one was mentored by Inah Gaetswe and ran agaisnt Hippolito Cabral in 1625, in war agaisnt the Portuguese like her mentor. Kizzy Afrani became the third Black Mamba, though she had no relation to the two previous ones, having been mentored by Kashta of Nubia, the legendary "Son of Sudala" and she gave hell to German commander Ernst Daimler in 1907 before disappearing like the two previous Mambas.
                                        The following Mamba to take that name was Nantobeko of Batusoland, a freedom fighter for four separate decades, never sen withouth her pet cheetah she dressed to kill British soldiers as well as any Immortal foolish enough to challenge her. Finally, the last we know of was Ayondela Kawime, a rebel fighter in Angola who was mentored by legendary Queen Anne Nzinga; herself a disciple of Sunda Kastagir.
                                        All those women were thought killed long ago, but cross-referencing work in past chronicles of Ernst Daimler, Larca, Hippolito Cabrall, Olapede Chukwu ad Kashta of Nubia allow to file those five ladies among the list of Missing Immortals, rather than Deceased. They may still be living out there, somewhere, waiting together for the time of the Gathering.

                                        Swenja Baatz and Lootje De Groot were enjoying a night out at Paradise Casino in Las Vegas, when they sensed the presence of two of their kind. Of all the places to gamble in ! It had to be a casino ran by Amanda the thief and her consort, ex-cop Nick Wolfe, all–around nice guy and vigilante boy scout, keeping a watchful eye on his beloved Amanda. In the 20 years which followed Nick’s First Death the two birds reconciiled their differences and have been living together, facing the risks and demands of immortal life : having to move out and change identity once every decade, face the odd agressive Immortal (Amanda killed two, Nick one) while running a respectable professional life, lately in Las Vegas. Casino Paradise : the perfect place where a cat-burglar can thrive, imagine, a place where she can rob customers from their money under the letter of the Law. A nice touch of irony.
                                        So far the Gathering didn’t cause harm to the raven and the wolf, but tonight their luck ran out. Swenja Baatz had a score to settle with Amanda and the meddlesome Nick wouldn’t let Swenja win, but Lootje De Groot challenged him to a fair fight. The problem with Swenja and Lootje is they had become overconfident and complacent about their place in the Game and in the Final Gathering. They thought their luck would never run out. When Swenja faced Amanda, she faced her exact opposite, a woman would was as devious and ruthless as any Immortla when it came to fin a fight, an Immoirtal able to take on the Siberian Tiger Andre Korda himself and who had bested more agressive players of the Game than thought possible. Like her teacher, gentle Amanda has her bite. Swenja lost her head because she bore in herself the seeds of her own destruction. And when Lootje De Groot took out Nick Wolfe, she didn’t have much time to savor her Quickening as overwhelming grief prevented her from mounting a porper defense against the vengeful Amanda.

                                        From the Tribunal

                                        Nine years ago Joe Dawson wrote an eulogy for Duncan MacLeod of the Clan MacLeod and suddenly everyone believes the Highlander's dead. Who could truly believe it Dawson was the Highlander's friend and would have gone at extreme lengths to make sure the Immortal would gain respite from the Game, including a mock-up funeral so everyone in the Immortals community and their Watchers would be convinced MacLeod was killed by a bogus Immortal. We strongly suspect Dawson wanted to protect the Highlander from rogue Watchers who had been targeting Immortals durign the course of the 2000's, there were a lot of M.IA Immortals reported.

                                        Jamal Soliman didn't exist and MacLeod's then girlfriend in Cairo wasn't an Immortal, Aisha Koufri was a mortal woman who died from cancer in 2016. The biographies and Watcher's profile for Aisha and Soliman were mock-up chronicles from Adam Pierson himself. Both Watchers being well-known for falsifying records. Duncan MacLeod went missing from the Immortal scene for the last nine years, seemingly didn't take part in the Immortals War and hasn't been seen durign that year's Immortal Killfeast until now.

                                        It seems the attacks on Richie Ryan, Robert de Valicourt and Amanda by well-known players of the Game was ernough to get him out of retirement, investigating the Immortals who were assulting his dear old friends - not that he has many left.
                                        Joe Dawson and Pierson (aka Methos) were unavailable for comments, Amanda won't speak to us, she was too busy mourning the hapless Nick Wolfe. The Highlander is currently residing in Casablanc,a Morocco, a guest at his kinman's house, Connor MacLeod. An investigation is made on the group of assassins collectively known as "The Slaughterous Swords" who have been targeting MacLeod and the members of his Immortal family.

                                        • Okay, my friend, you changed the fates of Amanda and Duncan MacLeod? Methinks you have something up your sleeve....! Lol
                                          Could the Slaughterous Swords and the Sacred Order be linked somehow? Why else would you suddenly resurrect the thought-dead Duncan, change the fate of Amanda, re-unite Duncan with Connor and hint that the Immortal family, including Joe Dawson, is investigating the recent massacre of Immortal players of the Game.

                                          On a side note, not sad to see Wolfe stay dead. Sad about Swenja and Lootje though...

                                          Cheers

                                          • From the Records of the Tribunal

                                            With help from Duncan and Connor MacLeod's Immortal family and cross-referencing, Ravenwood investigated the activities of the brutal group of assassins collectively known as The Slaughterous Swords who targeted and murdered major players of the Game in the last twenty four months, in effect triggering a "Maxi Gathering" crisis which impacted the Immortal community to the extant their numbers have now fallen to less than two hundred.

                                            The catastrophe it seems is the work of a mysterious group of Immortals naming themselves Order of the Sacred Knowledge who wish to control the Immortal community and get rid of the Gathering threat by eliminating the most dangerous players of the Game. While their intentions may have been good - create order out of chaos so they could guide benevolent Immortals to their vision of what Immortality ought to be - it still triggered a catastrophe.

                                            The Slauighterous Swords have been gathered by an Immortal assassin named The Apostate (real idenity unknown); a several thousand years old man who blindly obeys the Sacred Order, targeting and killing Immortals who threaten the existence of the Order.

                                            Ravenwood (i.e Immortals Deoneces and Kyra of Sparta, Clemont Haynes, Frances Drummoind, Alex Raven, Sanjiv Gupta, Henry of Kent) had extended interviews with the MacLeod family members (Duncan, Connor, Amanda, Richie Ryan, Rebecca Horne, Joe Dawson himself) and could piece together the sequence of events that led to the present situation : 94 Immortals left living on Earth.

                                            The Sacred Order forgot that Ravenwood is allied with the Watchers and never figured out Duncan MacLeod wasn't dead. MacLeod and Methos did their best ot save the lives of their friends in the clan : Richie, et al but couldn't save the lives of Warren Cochrane who was a loose cannon, crazy as a bedbug, and of Robert of Valicourt who was a living dead since the passing of his wife Gina. Duncan reunited with Connor, Methos and Joe are In hiding, planning their next move, Richie Ryan matured and is waiting orders from Duncan. Xanthia of Melitus was ready to take on the women who murdered the SIS ladies. The SIS and Hellfire Club also were on the Order's kills list.

                                            There remains a handful of truly agressive Immortals who still pose a threat to the survivotrs, as well as the existence of the Order and its Apostate who endanger both Immortal and Watcher Communities. The SIS survivors, Ravenwood andf the MacLeod family are now united in the hope of halting the massacre and neutralizing the Order

                                            Ravenwood's investigations of the Slaughterous Swords presents the combo of Immortals as follows, numbered in chronological order :

                                            1. Scathag of Skye D : Xanthia of Melitus
                                            2. Aoife of Alba D : Xanthia of Melitus
                                            3. Kharma Fayzal D : Sanjiv Gupta
                                            4. Lootje De Groot D : Amanda
                                            5. Swenja Baatz D : Amanda
                                            6. Sid'Ahmed Taleb D : Connor MacLeod
                                            7. Rocco Mangiatesta D : Richie Ryan
                                            8. Chang D : Henry of Kent
                                            9. Sigrid Solvig ACTIVE, killed Robert de Valicourt
                                            10. Elise Yeow ACTIVE is hunting Methos
                                            11. George of Lydda D : Ishtar of Erech
                                            12. Andrew the Apostle D : Ishtar of Erech
                                            13. Typhoid Mary D : Lang Quing

                                            There are other possible "Swords", long-missing ennemies of Connor and Duncan MacLeod, we identified Messalina and Kallisto of Nicopolis who murdered two of Deoneces' sirens so the Order could break the morale of the seemingly invicible Spartan.
                                            The Order has lost most of their first batch of Swords to the MacLeod Clan and Ravenwood. Also, Swenja and Lootje were going to killed of by Henry of Kent who intended to take action against the two ladies, Amanda simply took them out before he did.

                                            Author notes :

                                            The inspiration for the group comes for a combo of assassins, the Gun Ho Guns from anime Trigun, a pack of colourful killers who try to hurt and kill Vash the Stampede, Trigun's main protagonist. The Gun Ho guns gave me that idea.
                                            https://trigun.fandom.com/wiki/Gung-Ho-Guns

                                            Also the negative reactions from the Imagine Facebook gang who didn't like my killing off Amanda and MacLeod. They were right and their reaction gave me the incentive for the plot that now explains all the deaths in recent months.

                                            Cheers

                                            Ambrose Bierce wanted to investigate the life of Alyssa Bautista and looked forward to speak to her. The biographer of Immortals knew how to be careful before approaching those of his kind knowing few of them would take well discussing their past lives with a possible opponents in the Game. In the last one hundred years, Ambrose interviewed quite famous names : Grayson, Amanda, Connor MacLeod, Katherine of Samothrace, the impostor posing as Methos, Victor Hesse and his underage lover Ingrid Baran, the SIS group, Kyra of Sparta. The biographies he wrote were disguises as fairy tales and published as works of fiction with the permission of the interviewees. Because some Immortals crave recognition and leaving a trace of their existence on Earth and some of them could be quite egotistical people. Even so, Ambrose was careful when approaching of them, one never knows, swords are quickly drawn in the Game.
                                            Harry Houdini was one of his most famous stories, and when he heard Houdini killed Alyssa Bautista, he sought to investigate the matter. Why would the master escapist kill a player of the Game who took out child molesters ? To our surprise, Alyssa was found to be alive and well, Harry didn’t kill her after all. Alyssa’s Field Watcher must have thought her killed by the magician, the Quickening belonged to another Immortal who hunted down both Immortals at that time.
                                            Azmbrose Bierce is now spending his time with Alyssa, writing on the stories of the aging Immortal woman living in the body of a young teenaged girl.

                                            Watcher Bureau, Southeast Asia

                                            From the Tribunal :

                                            Ambrose Bierce befriended immortal named Kay Murdstone who informed him of his immortality. We do not know why she chose to do so or when Bierce became an immortal. In 1913, Bierce traveled to Mexico to gain a firsthand perspective on that country's ongoing revolution. While traveling with rebel troops, the elderly writer disappeared without a trace. Another immortal, Gabriela de Sevedra helped him going underground, she had been one of his proteges in litterary circles. A funny fact about him is one of the aliases taken by "B. Traven" : Ret Maru. Et Maru is an alias used by Methos according to the Chronicle written by "Adam Pierson". Was Pierson yanking our chains or was there a connection between the ROG and Bierce ?

                                            In one of his last letters, Bierce wrote the following to his niece, Lora:
                                            "Good-bye if you hear of my being stood up against a Mexican stone wall and shot to rags please know that I think that a pretty good way to depart this life. It beats old age, disease, or falling down the cellar stairs. To be a Gringo in Mexico ah, that is euthanasia!"

                                            Perfect last word from a newbie immortal

                                            When Saifiyah Khan challenged Awiti, Awiti asked Safiyah were it was written in the Quran that "there can be only one".Safiyah answered that Allah had been guiding her sword through the centuries and that playing the Game was the only thing that gave sense to their Immortal lives. Awiti felt that this was a sad manner to live one's life, immortal or mortal where there are so many things to live by, but Safiyah remained unfazed and attacked the Immortal poet. She had been killing Immortals for nearly eight hundred years and always did the will of her chosen God who gave her one purpose in life : to hunt Immortals and take their power so one day she may join the Prophet in the paradise of Allah. "My success is only by Allah the merciful" she often says "he who guides me thought the straiight path". Curiously Safiyah chose to spare Awiti’s life after this debate. Did Awiti touch Safiya’s heart in some way ?

                                            I didn't like the plot where Bridget kills Victor and then Ingrid doesn't have her revenge against the woman, getting killed too.
                                            I thought best to let them live "happily ever after" since the Final Gathering isn't likely to happen.

                                            • I like the idea of the MacLeod family working with the Ravenwood group on a mission. I'd love to a fly on the wall to see the dynamic between Duncan MacLeod and Deoneces; the romantic idealistic Scotsman and the ancient, pragmatic short-tempered Spartan. Not to mention the fact that the Highlander had a brief fling with Kyra! Lol
                                              Also, Amanda and the Crimson Butterfly? Oh yes!

                                                Six years after her First Death, Annie Devlin was part of the Irish expatriates living in New-York with her teacher, Hugh
                                                O'Neil, the man who taught her to hate the English who had been opressing the Irish people for centuries. Hugh became

                                                Immortal Nicholas Hilliard, a cunning British weapons smuggler known for allying himself with Hiugh O'Neil in the past.
                                                Hilliard was ready to talk business with the red head but he was asking too high a price for his contraband.
                                                Hugh O'Neil posed as a bard and poet, gathering funds from the Irish Expatriate Society of Manhattan and Annie
                                                couldn't condone the behavior of a man ready to sell the Irish rebels to the police : his contraband was found by a police

                                                met by Annie's angry sword. "We execute traitors, in Ireland, don't you know" were the last words he heard before his
                                                head fell on the ground.

                                                In 1916, Annie Devlin promised Duncan MacLeod a beautiful war against the English, MacLeod denied his former lover

                                                More Irish blood was shed. Volunteer leader Eoin MacNeill issued a countermand in a bid to halt the Rising, ultimately lowering
                                                the numbers of dead. Annie felt no shame. In war, sacrifices must be made and she made the decision with a cold heart, her
                                                companion being as determined as she was. Patrick Pearse may have been a great leader of men, but all leaders have a
                                                woman beside them, whispering terrible things in their ears.
                                                During the Rising, atrocities were committed on both sides, Irish civilians were murdered by a battalion led by Immortal
                                                Aubert Cavalier, a man who led centuries of warfare against Irish rebels, finally facing the raging sword of Annie Devlin.
                                                During the Easter Rising, Annie led an auxiliary paramilitary organisation named Cumann na mBan "The Irishwomen's
                                                Council« , fighting the British alongside the Irish Republican Brotherhood. Annie herself carried out sniper attacks on
                                                British troops, and was confronted by Cavalier.
                                                Annie got her wish, the Easter Rising provoked a decades long war between the IRA and the British and another British
                                                Immortal fell to her sword. After Pearse’s surrender to the British, followed by his trial and execution, her hate grew with
                                                even more vigor.

                                                for thirty years, a war that ended with the death of Annie Devlin and the signing of the Good Friday Agreement in 1998.

                                                and took him out in mere minutes while Jabs’ men shot 28 innocent civlians, to our collective shame as British citizens.

                                                Before his first death defending Limerick against the forces of Guillaume II, king of England, Hugh O'Neil had been a
                                                firm defender of Ireland's independence. Which he remained during three hundred years, shedding English blood and
                                                killing many innocent people in the cross-fire. Its because of Hugh O'Neil that Ireland was plagued with immortals such
                                                as Annie Devlin and Liam O'Rourke.
                                                After nearly two hundred and fifty years of fighting for such "the cause", Hugh O'Neil grew tired of the endless
                                                bloodshed and began making up for his actions, becoming more and more a defender of peace, trying to build a bridge
                                                between Ireland and England, and most notably, between the Catholics and Protestants of Ireland. I suspect the horrors
                                                of two world wars played a part in this sudden change of heart. Everyone change, look at Kage.
                                                Today, Hugh O'Neil lost his head to Chang who wanted his head just for the sake of the Game. I am grieving for Hugh
                                                and hope that he now found the peace he had been seeking for the past fifty years, as he had been relentlessly pursued
                                                by the ghosts of his victims.

                                                Original cultural affiliation : Irish-American
                                                Born : 1836, New-York NY USA
                                                First death : 1874, Restaurant proprietor killed by
                                                Shamrocks gang for not paying protection money

                                                Drew Gallagher didn't want to pay his weekly fee to the Shamrocks in the gang-infested New-York of 1874, and that's
                                                what got him killed by the Shamrocks. When he woke up in Noonan's house, he discovered a harsher life was waiting for
                                                him and that he would need more than accountant and verbal skills to fend for himself in the Game. Drew took Noonan's
                                                lessons at heart and trained for the day he would have to face another one of his kind with his sword. Meanwhile, he
                                                stayed out of the Game and lived quiet, unassuming lives in backwater cities of the American Midwest, changing
                                                identities every two decades. When Annie Devlin asked for his help in her war against the British Empire, Gallagher
                                                denied her a bank loan and went so far as to meddling in her business by disclosing her current whereabouts to the FBI.
                                                He paid the ultimate price for his bravery.

                                                Annie Devlin's life was joined the Cause of Ireland's freedom from the oppression of the English. Right or wrong, she
                                                fought like a devil to free her homeland, but did it at the cost of innocent lives. Hundreds of mortals died because of her
                                                schemes, and last week was one time too many : a bomb in Belfast caused the death of twelve innocent people, among
                                                them immortal Steven Keane and his mortal wife Bernadette who were visiting the Ulster. Bernadette's life was
                                                destroyed, leaving a ravaged Keane searching for the guilty part. He found the murderer in the person of Annie Devlin, a
                                                woman out of time, to whom he reminded that war had been over for a long time, a lesson imparted to him in 1996 by a
                                                Scot, Duncan MacLeod. Revenge resolves nothing, Keane knew, but he also couldn't let Annie kill more innocent, destroy
                                                more lives. Keane didn't kill Annie for the sake of revenge, he killed her to prevent more harm from her.

                                                • Thanks, Gardner, my friend. I'm doing much better. Being a full-time carer for my dad has helped me move on somewhat and also the realisation that while my mum's passing was painful, i'm also relieved that she didn't suffer for years as some do with what my mum had. So, i'm now looking forward and not dwelling on what can't be changed.
                                                  Plus, i have so many good memories that i'm clinging to...

                                                  Good to see you posting again as well. Kinda wondering how you were getting on with this Gathering initiated by the plottings of the Sacred Order. Look forward to what's coming next.

                                                  Loved the Annie Devlin chronicle.

                                                  Cheers
