        I read through your updated Immortals War postings, Gardner, and noticed a few changes; less deaths etc. Any chance you could post the updated stats of the Immortals whose fates you've changed so I can make the adjustments in my notes? I've decided to transfer all the written info of Immortals onto a new file I've set up on my PC. It's gonna take awhile, though, over 2500 Immortals to record, plus the new ones we've since come up with! Lol
        Also, any Immortals you created while this site was down would be much appreciated!

        Cheers, my friend!

          Whoops!! That would be too complicated! Since the original HLBB broke down I did countless updates, most of them minor ones. I did the Immortals War as best as I could and did the changes I saw necessary, but didn't keep track of the updates I did, only on my excel charts. Some of the minor Immortals killed in Latin America, Africa and Middle East are now active or dead, killed by other Immortals. In the grand scheme of things it doesn't truly matter wether Character A, B, C or D has been killed by a Harem woman or by another player of the Game. See what I mean. Your version of the Watcher's chronicles will be necessarily different from mine as you have 2,500 characters, and I have 3500 and of the 2,500 you have, I changed many and there are 200 of them I deleted. And unless you have an excel chart allowing you to manage those characters, well. I don't see how those differences can be conciliated.

          Besides, it doesn't really matter : the big players are still in place (I.E Ravenwood, SIS, BMR, etc..) and there is no so drastic changes I made that need updating. Clemont Haynes and Juanita Vasquez are listed as active, btw, since they are important players. But that's it. For instance, the Immortals killed by the Harem women were instead killed by other players of the Game because I didn't believe in a middle eastern Immie keeping immortal sex slaves around to train them as active headhunters.

          Now if you like, I can post a list of active and inactive Immortals for each region, but well...

          Cheers !

            Cheers anyway, Gardner. A list of active and inactive Immortals would help me adjust some of those outcomes accordingly, and get an idea of where most of the major players are at this point in time. Since i'm going to be doing a lot of work uploading these characters onto my PC, thought i'd at least get them up to the present day.

              Thanks for the list, my friend! Now that i'm committed to updating and re-uploading all my Immortals onto a new file, this will help immensely! I'll have an all-new Immortal universe to play around with! Lol

                  45,000–43,000 years ago: Cro-Magnon colonization of Europe.
                  Skullsmasher of the Skulls Clan and his Watcher friend Moonwatcher from 40,000 BC. Was trampled by a mammoth while hunting and chased from his tribe like a demon. Moonwatcher followed him and painted his stories in abandoned caves. Skullsmasher killed his first Immortal - the last living Neanderthal - by crushing his skull and tearing his head out, discovering the power of the Quickening with Moonwatcher looking from afar, in awe. Made a beautiful painting of the scene
                  33,000 years ago Skullsmasher starts domesticating dogs
                  26000 BC :Survives last Ice age
                  15000 BC : kills his last wolly rhino

                  Existence theorized and recorded by Watcher research after finding odd paintings on ancient caves of Western Europe.

                      Thought i'd post something I came up with, Gardner that could spice things up in the present day. A little intrigue with a nod to the past:

                      13 September 2017

                      To: Lynn Horton, Director-in-Chief, True Watchers

                      From: Richard Williams, Regional Director, North America



                      First of all, I would like to offer you my warmest congratulations for your appointment to the position of Director-in-Chief of the True Watchers. It has taken five years for us to repair the damage done to the legacy of the Watchers in the aftermath of the Immortals War, and it is gratifying to know that our legacy is now in such good hands. Still, I was saddened to hear that so many of our brothers and sisters chose to betray their heritage by allowing themselves and their knowledge to be appropriated by Ravenwood International Security. The very fact that Immortals are now in possession of some of our most guarded secrets, and that one of our most trusted brothers, Adam Pierson, was revealed to have been the ancient Immortal Methos all this time, is a source of great regret. I suppose Joe Dawson was just a catalyst for the malaise that had set in to the organisation over so many decades without our realising it. Put simply; we failed to move with the times.



                      I am pleased by the collective agreement among the Council about the need to adapt our methods and practices to the modern world. We will keep our millennia long tradition to observe and record and not interfere, however, as proposed by Security Director Ethan Mathis, should our field operatives feel threatened then extreme measures should be taken, up to and including lethal force. Ethan has been recruiting and training his personnel to engage men and women with centuries of combat experience, and to deal with our own former members of the defunct Spec Ops group now in the employ of Ravenwood. Let’s be clear, Security Division will not be able to take independent action and I think we should also keep a close watch on Ethan. You and I both know how close he was to your father. He still denies, to this day, knowing what your father was doing and we don’t have enough evidence to connect him to the Hunters. Still, I’ve discreetly instructed Jean-Pierre in Intelligence to monitor Ethan at a distance. Better to be safe than sorry.

                      Did you here? Ravenwood have promoted Joe Dawson to head of operations for their North and Central American Division. The man who single-handedly brought about our initial demise has been rewarded with a lucrative post working for the very Immortals he spent decades observing. Ironic, isn’t it?

                      I know you’ve issued a hands-off warning to our operatives in the area regarding Joe, and I know you still care a great deal about the man. I know you don’t blame him for what happened to your father, but others in our ranks may not be quite so trustworthy. A further, official warning may be necessary.



                      13th September 2017



                      To: Deoneces of Sparta, Kyra of Sparta, Joint CEOs, Ravenwood International Security

                      From: Joe Dawson, Chief of Operations, North and Central American Division, Ravenwood International Security



                      I take it word has reached you by now that some of my former colleagues have formed a new Watchers Council. They’re calling themselves the True Watchers and my goddaughter, Lynn, is in charge. They claim to be sticking to the old ways of observing and recording and not interfering, but I’ve got my ears to the ground. I trust Lynn, she hasn’t done anything to convince me she’s her father’s daughter, but that doesn’t mean I trust those around her. Especially Ethan Mathis. I know he was in on Horton’s crusade, but he never got his hands dirty, so we could never pin anything on him. Now I hear he’s recruiting mercs and ex-military into his part of the True Watchers. My sources tell me these new Watchers are ready to act against anyone they see as a threat, Immortals or otherwise, so I suggest putting everyone on alert just in case. We don’t want a shooting war on the streets but we need to be ready in case Mathis decides to finish what James started. I’m worried about Lynn, though. If things go south I hope she’s got plenty of people she can trust around her.

                      I’ll keep an eye on things this side of the Pond, I suggest you do too. Maybe reach out to Richeard of Mercia and his group, give them the heads up, no harm in having a few more eyes out there just in case.


                      Cheers,
                      Apollo1

                          Interesting tale. I must admit I completely omitted the takeover of the Watchers by Ravenwood in my improved version of Immortals War.
                          But that is something Cleophon's disciples would do : take action agaisnt the Watchers. Or at least, make sure the Immortals interfere i nthe affairs of the Watchers that time.
                          And we have the True Watchers taking action against Deoneces' action! Very good.

                          I once wrote stats for Immortals killed by a new death squad led by Lynn Horton but negated that. I honetsly do not know wehter Lynn took out Immortals or not, but this is a woman who has to be put under watch.

                          I have been working on the Bronze Age immortals stats, I found very interestign characters with intriguing stories. But I need two more :
                          19th century BC One male, one female please.

                          In my ongoing effort to improve the male/female ratio of the Immortal population, I also would need :

                          2nd century 4 Immortal women
                          3rd century 5 Immortal women
                          4th century 8 Immortal men 4 Immortal women
                          5th century 5 Immortal women
                          6th century 6 Immortal women
                          9th century 5 Immortal women
                          10th century 6 Immortal women
                          11th century 7 Immortal women
                          12th century 7 Immortal women
                          15th century 9 Immortal women
                          16th century 11 Immortal women

                            Yeah, sorry about that. I was using a different font when I typed it out, copied and pasted it and it came out black. Won't make that mistake again lol

                              Working on those names for you my friend, I have two so far:

                              19th century BC

                              Parthos of Aram - male
                              Anunit of Mazaka (Upper Mesopotamia) - female

                                  Re: Lynn Horton. I always believed she would want to make amends for her father's crimes, he did after all murder her fiancée. And she seemed to have an affection for Joe. It made sense to have her build a new Watchers Council with some of the older Watchers who refused to work with Ravenwood. Still, having a black sheep in the True Watchers adds an unpredictable element: Ethan Mathis; was he or was he not in on James Horton's crusade? How much did he know? Joe Dawson doesn't trust him and some in the True Watchers are dubious. Time will tell.

                                  Because of the amount of names you've asked for Gardner, i'm going to post them in batches. Here's the next lot:

                                  2nd century

                                  Sophonisba of Mauretania - female
                                  Xmucane - Mayan female
                                  Petya of the Getae - female
                                  Auina of Tuihanti - Suebi female

                                  3rd century

                                  Elewechi of the Nok - female
                                  Myrine of Paeonia - female
                                  Achaxe of Sarmatia - female
                                  Haideh of Hadhramaut - female
                                  Chwun-yu of Kangju - female

                                  Cheers

                                      Sorry about that, my friend! With so many Immortals, occasionally i'll forget I've already used the name! lol

                                      I have another Mayan female for you: Ichtaca

                                      Challenged to a fight by Appius Lepidus insulted
                                      by a poem of Marsus mocking him, while written
                                      merely in jest

                                      Appius was hot-blooded in those times and he hated the homosexual elements of Rome, even though they were vere more common on our streets than in ancient Greece. Still he didn't have a tolerant mind and it wasn't his teacherDeoneces who could teach him tolerance. When Deoneces told him about homisexuality in ancient Athens, Appius didn't want to listen. Well, in present-days he doesn't mind the gay communities but two thousands years ago... that was something else. When gay immortal Rufus Marsus did those advances on him, Appius felt challenged and drew his sword, even though Rufus felt ibnterested by Appius' other sword, if you catch my meaning. The fight was quick and one
                                      of the most brillant minds (and beautiful men) of Rome died onhis knees, begging for his life. All Rufus wanted was to give a little love to Appius, that which Appius didn't udnerstand.

                                      Kardashian was as much dedicated to the Parthian Empire aswas Appius to the Roman Empire, but all Empires fall and he knew it. Still, he followed the winds of change and like a chameleon adapted himself to any empire that rose and was ready to welcome him as soldier or mercenary. Appius believed Rome would last forever (I still have a good laugh when I think about the fall of Rome) and hated all Immortals opposing Rome with apassion, strongly despising the barbarians he had to fought as a centurion. Which explain the chuckle I get when I think of poor Appius having to face hordes of barbarians being enrolledas mercs in Roman legions. He must have hated those tmes with a passion.
                                      Still, in 53 BC, Rome was strong and Appius faced Kardashian with righteousness, his gladius in his firm hand.His resolve lessened as centuries pased by and he confessed to me in the 14th century that, had he been wiser, he would have spared the Babylonian's head instead of killing him with spite.

                                      cross-referenced as disciple of Asantewaa

                                      Harkhuf Atiqa is yet another regret of Appius Lepidus Baro,dear got he really poured out his heart to me that famous night in Pavia ! Ah, Nubians mercenaries ! Bold, strong, quikc and their women ! Such good lovers and even more ferocious than their men, especially the Immortal ones. Wait till I tell you about the Immortal women Appius fought...Hehad some nasty surprises. Anyway. Atiqa was born in the Kingdom fo Meroe and was as ancient as they come, a withered Immortal who had sen too many wars and was tired of seeign his people being enslaved by either Egypt or Rome. He fought for his people and was Nubia Malcom X with a littel of Professor Xavier in the mix.
                                      I can't believe I am writing this. I must go senile after 5,000+ years of existence on Earth. He was a lover of the great Sit-Hathor Iunet a woman I once courted and am glad I didn't rape and enslave, one less fury after my hide. Atiqa fought Appius Lepidus Baro who was a definite snob and rascist, believing in the superiority of Rome and there was nothing that could change his mind. Atiqa's wife begged him to spare her husband's head but to no avail.
                                      The Quickenign was strong and I belive Appius was lucky Shayeena was a mortal warrior or he would have his own Cassandra after his head after two thousnd years...

                                        the Assyrians, rumored to be an invicible demon

                                        Hell hath no fury like a woman scorned. And Elisheva was one hell of a woman, a savy little fighter and player of the Game who was dedicated to the protection of her land. Hated the Romans with as much passion as Avram Mordecai.Poor Avram, he took out Marcus Constantine out of hate and look at him now, pushing up daisies. But I digress. I had a lot of respect for Elisheva, she reminded me of Abellona when my brother found her and mentored her and in her case it was the Na'amah the Prophetess who mentored her in 756 BC and did she turn her mind around ! She prophetized to her the misfortunes that would happen to Israel in the coming centuries and she stood ready against Rome in 53 BC, two hundred years before the revolt of Bar Kobbah. Appius had never met an Immortal woman and had
                                        but contempt for the women of his kind, seeing them as holy women or whores, unable to carry children, thus useless wastes of flesh. Did he have a surprise with Elisheva ! She fought him like a fury after decimating scores of llegionnaires in guerilla tactics until finally Rome sent Appius the champion after her. The mighty champion didn't stand a chance against a woman I personally trained but I didn't confess THIS to poor Appius and his mournful sip of wine. He told me he was lucky against her, but he may have cheated. Well, he still have to live with this sin as I do when I think of Cassandra. And all the others.

                                        Original cultural affiliation : Assyrian
                                        Born : 150 BC; Beth Nuadra, Parthian Assyria
                                        First death : 120 BC, Murdered by jealous rival
                                        over the affections of a woman he courted
                                        First teacher : Ahasuerus the Parthian

                                        First recorded sighting : 118. Kingdom of
                                        Adiabene. Contemptuously killed by Baro who
                                        later realised he needlessly killed Maeonius

                                        The resistance of the Kingdom of Adiabene against Rome lasted only two years before Rome eventually gave
                                        possession of Assyria and Mesopotamia. Today Appius acknowledges it was a twaste of time and efforts for him and his legion to come after the Assyrians and his battle against Meonius seems as futile s his other earlier kills. Maeonius would have become an ally of Rome with time and maybe a trusted ally of Appius. I sincerely consoled the Roman, not reminded him that Christian Assyrians sided with Christian Rome, and in likelihood Maeonius would have been killed by Appius with as much scorn by the fall of Rome. Appius wasn't too tolerant with Christians either. He so looks like an unpleasant bastard as I write all this.

                                        Kyra never truly forgave Appius Lepidus the murder of Hyllos of Argos, oen of her favorite disciples, fellow sportsmen and lovers. Appius is now cured from his homophobia but all the regrets in the world won't change the fact that a good man was killed in the Game before he could become one of its champions. Hyllos had a competitive mind and played when challenged, he accepted all kinds of challenges : on the battlefield, in the Olympic Games, had turned out to be a master of the bed and of the blade but when he tried to seduce Appius, deeep-tonguing him after one night of drunken debauchery, Appius' blood boiled and that was the end of Hyllos.

                                        witnessed by her disciple Gabriel of Zeeland

                                        With Lifgarda of Hanover, Appius learned his lesson and was careful to be prepared when he faced the ancient Valkyrie woman. Ah the Valkyries ! They spread their own legend across the Danube right to the Nordic wastelands of Scadninavia, fighting entire armies, playign the Game, dincing, singing and fornicatign togetherr. What prud and beautiful warrior women they were ! Together, they were a force to be reckoned with, then they went their separate ways and the Game killed them all, one by one. Only Sigihild remains, the Watchers last saw her in Spain by the time of the Civil War, helping her Czech husband and Immortal lead resistance against the Nazis. A tale that inspired the movie Casablanca. She and her husband are still alive, they send postcards from time to time.
                                        In 1252 Appius was in Hanover, a mercenary sword in barbaric and brutal times; Lifgarda had retired from the Game but sometimes she didn't mind a good workout and male challengers didn't scare her. Appius still had a chip on his shoulders in those days and he had scores to settle with Immortal women, especially when they cheat and pretend to be men. Well, he was lucky this was a withered Immortal because the fire was gone along time ago, only the presence of her sisters gave her the incentive to fight like a fury. A true shame.

                                          First death : 1223; Raped and murdered by the
                                          Kurgan, part of invasive army of Genghis Khan

                                          Known ennemies : the Kurgan
                                          First recorded sighting : 1224. Volga Bulgaria
                                          Found by Korda, hiding in a convent, violated and
                                          dishonored, unaware she had been killed

                                          I honestly don't know how Zlatka Golakova survived being raped by the Kurgan, few women did, with the expetion of Connor MacLeod's mortal wife and one of my brother Kronos' disciples. Under the guidance of Cleophon of Athens she would have become the Balkans' counterpart to the Crimson Butterfly; under the guidance of Andre Korda she became a skilled assassin and a hater or men, feeling forgotten by God and with the Devil in her heart. Reading her chronicle, I realise how Cassandra must have felt when I... conquered her body (violated her body, old and ancient bastard!) and on top of that selling her to Kronos. 3,000 years of nurtured anger and hatred. She could never let it go.
                                          Ah Cassandra. I hate having had to disclose the story we had in common to Kyra and Deoneces, the look in their eyes was more painful than Kronos' blade through my heart when we reunited in 96. Zlatka is truly a tragic character who had to adapt herself to the violent past of Europe in the Middle Ages, and hell knows how Korda was good at manipulating Immortal women, even the older ones (see Amanda's chronicle, 1905). In 1223 she was hiding in a convent, in 1360 the Volga Viper had specialized in seducing dules, princes,swordsmasters, bankers, worming her way in theri beds before killing them on behalf of Korda, all that time posing as his daughter, beign given in marriage to men Korda wanted to.. see disposed of. With time she disposed herself of Korda, I think she poisoned him, but she didn't take his head. She vanished into the night and re-appeared in 1360 near Scotney Castle in the lovely county of Kent. In 1360 Appius Lepidus Baro fell in
                                          love with a mortal woman and after centuries of being a murdering bastard and an all-around unpleasant bastard, experienced an epiphany of sort, realising hs life is fragile and that not all Immortals are fit to be put to his mighty sword.
                                          Kage, anyone ? Well, even I can fall in love with a mortal girl, my latest was... ah beautiful Alexa. Even my dark side she accepted. Well, Esmeralda was Appius' Alexa and the beautiful redhead stole Appius' heart in a manner to make Amanda herself pale with envy. Appius the warrior, Appius the conqueror, the merciless became a man in love, forsaking the darkness in his own heart. And when the Voilga Viper came after the happy couple, Appius was for once relucant to murder a woman, but he had no choice.
                                          Laugh if you like, Kronos my brother, I may have feared you, I may have loved you, but I am the one who changed and let love touch my heart, not you and your taste for rampant destruction. Appius changed too andnot even the Volga Viper's Quickening could taint his soul.

                                          Maginulf of Pavia was a bastard through and through who spent seven hundred years being a plunderer, a killer, a rapist and a bloody savage. Still he had a good side of him when reading though his chronicle, a soft side : he like animals, was fond of horses, he trained dogs for attack and for the hunting; he played the flute with a tearful pathos and his deep, booming voice still resonates through the mind of Appius who took one mighty Quickening in 1434 when we were drinking wine together. Maginulf was hunting ancient players of the Game and he met Appius and I. I was the one he challenged by Appius got dibs on him. And besides, the gargantuan immortal reminded me of Silas.
                                          He still
                                          does.

                                          The chronicle of Appius, after his epiphany, speaks of an Immortal who plays the Game when challenged or to defend his loved ones or the land he pledged his sword to. The memory of Esmeralda never leaves him and why the ancietn Roman remains a fearsome player of the Game, this is a more tolerant man, a calmer Immortal - in the way a violent Immortal like him can be ! At least, that's one less Caspian or Silas to worry about. Ah darn, why are my chronicles pregnant with the memories of my brothers ? Ah Silas. Why didn't you change, you could still be playing the flute now.
                                          And Caspian... you reap what you sow. Why did you pick on your brother ?
                                          Appius Lepidus Baro seldom allowed himself the companionship of other Immortals, he didn't create a brotherhood and only spoke to us - Deoneces, Kyra and myself - the rare time we gathered in Pavia. He recanted how he was in Moscow in 1688 and had to face an Immortal even more intolerant of foregners as he was in his young years

                                          Because he had bedded and loved an Ottoman archer woman, Sabite Bayar, who had been through four hundred years of conquests and warfare and had seen too much, killed too many, had allowed too many rapes of innocent women, too many lootings and burnings of consecrated Christian sites. Way too many. She laid down her sword and still the Ottoman, became a messenger in search of more pacifical occupation. Then 1730 she briefly reunited with Appius during the Revolt of Patrona Halil which ended a period of peace of Ottoman history; she had seen enough of Immortality and wanted to end it. Bearing a cloak and a hood, she challenged Appius and Appius killed her, unaware he was killing Sabite Bayar. The Quickening disclosed to him the horrors she had witnessed and Appius was the one to bury her in private, in a cosnecrated palce.

                                          First recorded sighting : 1754. Beijing, China
                                          Introduced Kane and the Khan brothers to
                                          Emperor Quianlong as demi-gods from Heaven

                                          I haven't felt guilt since the 11th century. Appius experienced guilt for the last time in 1796 when he took out the Immortal responsible for the career as "Gods" of Kane, Senghi Khan and Khabul Khan in China in 1754 as a favor to Deoneces of Sparta who wanted to put him in front of his responsabilities as an Immortal to mortalkind.
                                          (See Chronicle of Deoneces of Saprta, 1754, good for a laugh and worth any Shaw Brothers action movie. Bring the popcorn). Appius Lepidus hunted down the man who was behind the Bailian Jao rebellion in China and faczed a kingmaker who didn't bother with hiding his immortal nature to Emperor Quianlang. The fight was brief, more an execution than a fight, but after that Appius expected his "debt" to be paid. The uncompromising morals of good old Deoneces.

                                            Loved these chronicles, my friend! Just like old times! Lol
                                            Inspired choice to have Methos be the author of Baro's chronicle and you've captured the essence of the Roman Immortal I had in mind when I decided to make him more three-dimensional. BTW loved Methos' sly digs at Deoneces and his reminisces of his Horseman years. Fantastic job.

                                            I'm currently working on those 4th century names you wanted and i'll post them ASAP.

                                              Removing the reference to MacLeod since Methos didn't tell him about his past in our continuity.
