    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

    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
    her mentor, teaching her to use the infamous "Devlin Trick" which made her famous for outmaneuvering male opponents
    during a fight. In 1887 Annie sought to purchase guns to send to Ireland, helping the cause of local Irish rebels, and met
    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
    investigation, O'Neil was arrested, pending deportation, while Hilliard discreetly attempted to board ship, only to be
    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.

    Rebellion of 1641
    First teacher : Steven Keane
    Known associates : Steven Keane
    Known ennemies : Duncan MacLeod, Annie Devlin
    First recorded sighting : 1641, County Cork
    Found and mentored by Steven Keane

    In 1916, Annie Devlin promised Duncan MacLeod a beautiful war against the English, MacLeod denied his former lover
    and left her to her war, wanting no part in it after Darius taught him the futility of warfare. Annie Devlinb took part in the
    Eastern Rising, siding with leader Patrick Pearse, manipulating bold young Irishmen into rising against the British. All
    they needed, she felt, was to be killed, so their death would inspire future generations into fighting the good fight against
    the English oppressor. To quote WB Yeats, "a terrible beauty was born".
    The Irish Republican Brotherhood wanted to proclaim the Irish Republic and make their voice heard. Pearse put a letter in
    the newspaper saying the British were going to disarm the Irish Volunteers, naturally the Volunteers went to the fight and war
    was on.
    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.

    Reporting the death of Piers Jacobs by the furious blade of Annie Devlin in Belfest the same day that will go down in
    history as Bloody Sunday as our troops tried to tame those Irish rebels. Helen Bondeville and Allegra Chambers will no
    doubt mourn the passing of their colleague of the SIS as well as a great friend and occasional lover. He was a serious man
    with an agenda but never forgot that to survive as an Immortal you need to live your life fully. He put as much care in
    his preparations for his missions as he put in forging alliances with other Immortals or bond with the SIS group. And as
    far as the Game was concerned, he took it seriously and trained constantly, his fatal flaw being he expected the same
    fair-play from his opponents. Unfortunately, Annie Devlin isn’t fair-play : she used her trick of the sword to defeat Piers
    and took him out in mere minutes while Jabs’ men shot 28 innocent civlians, to our collective shame as British citizens.

    First recorded sighting : 1014. Ireland. Student of Alex Raven

    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.

    Brad Silver
    First recorded sighting : 1878 Brookly NY. Student of Morgan Noonan

    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.

    Immortals Republican Army, Swords of Allah, Kieran Doherty
    First recorded sighting : 1881 Ulster, student of O'Neil

    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.

    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!

    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 one 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

    First recorded sighting : 1914 Guatemala City
    Meeting Gabriela de Sevedra who helped him to
    find a safe place where to hide

    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!"

    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.

    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...

    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.

    When Awiti Lerato Traoré confronted Romain De Villers on his racist beliefs, she told him "I am not afraid of you, YOU are afraid of me ! You
    are afraid of the future and of what it can bring to your homeland". That got Romain pissed off and he drew his blade, forcing Awiti into a
    challenge. Awiti doesn’t play the Game but knows how to fend for herself in the world of Immortality and soon landed the irate Frenchman
    on his knees. However, she spared his head, not wanting his Quickening. She got a light laugh and left him, angry and confused. Awiti is
    truly a wise woman, while Romain is a pompous idiot with outdated beliefs on what France should be. Some Immortals just can't change
    and sooner or later that's what will cost Romain his life. If not by Awiti's blade, then by someone else's.

    When Saifiyah Khan challenged Awiti, Awiti asked Safiyah were it was written in the Quran that "there can be only one".Safiyah answered

    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!

    Wow, good job with the latest updates, my friend.
    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.

    From the Records of the Tribunal
    5 July 1990

    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.

    John Frederick Horrigan

    From : Watcher Bureau, Australia
    To : Watcher Tribunal
    Date : 15.09.2012


    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 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.

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.

    A hot and human immortal during the day
    A nice immortal girl who enjoys a drink
    A young girl whose blood runs faster at night
    My kind of immortal girl

    I am an immortal
    A hot-blooded immortal during the day
    Drinking a Quickening before the body is cold
    Whose heart explodes when the night comes
    This kind of immortal

    A calm immortal girl, who takes her sword when she plays
    An immortal girl with long hair when she plays the Game
    A girl with sense

    I am an immortal man
    Seemingly at peace, but who plays when the time come
    Who goes crazy when he plays the Game
    An immortal who uses his mind, rather than his muscles

    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.

    Victor : Xanthia of Melitus

    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.

    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
    occupation of her homeland by hte British Empire chose to let go of their past differences and help as she could.
    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.

    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.

    I wonder where the shenigans of the Sacred Order will take us. Their decision to trigger the Gathering turns out to be worse than Ra's manipulations after all. Who shall sanction them , Ravenwood ? Can Deoneces face the Apostate ? Xanthia ? Kyra ? We shall see. The Order manipulated Messalina and Kallisto into killing Katherine and Seraphina so Deoneces would be broken. He still has Kyra however.

    Amanda, well... I liked her but her time was up. Nick should have been gone long ago.

    Merlino is heading to Vatican City where he feels he is needed in renovations projects.

    Brother Antoine, St. Christopher Chronicle
    11 September 2011

    Right in the middle of the Immortals War when tensions between Immortals are at an all-time high, Merlino Bolognesi chose the wrong time to hit on the mysterious Immortal woman Udiyana, an intense woman followed and protected by a very serious player of the Game so far identified as Anya Jarvis. Both women live in Rome, do research work in the Vatican, travel everywhere and are never seen one without the other. Merlino always had his way with the ladies and when it came to Immortal ones he couldn't help stick himself in dangerous situations, not unlike Spaniard Roman Alvarez. With the exception Alvarez knew to choose carefully his women.
    Merlino stayed too long in that monastery of Zurich because Udinya is a woman no one dares approach without being challenged by her chaperone. The Jarvis woman felt Merlino attempted to hurt her protégé and she was quick to draw her sword and take Merlino out of the Game.

    Callestina chose to challenge Aisha al Fadhil, a well-known soldier woman because she wanted to have a challenge worth her time and also to honor the skills of the woman who had survived the last three decades in the Game unscathed. It would be a lot to assume Aisha is "unscathed" because she carries the psychological wounds of having been on countless battlefields in the last thirty years on the five continents. The war in Afghanistan was one war too many, in 2016 she chose to retire from the US Army and to join the anti-poaching unit of the Eastern Cape alongside the ancient Olapede Chukwu, also a retired warrior and shell-shocked veteran.
    Callestina fancies herself a warrior woman and player of the Game with fighting skills inherited from Grayson's wife whose name she took for herself. While not as classy as the original Callestina she still knows how to choose her quarries, the lioness trailing for antelopes.
    Unfortunately for Callestina, the antelope has big, strong horns : she was trained by an Afghan warrior named Yalvatch and isn't afraid to use her big gun in the Game to ward off potential opponents. Callestina should have known that younger Immortals, those born i nthe second part of the 20th century are the least likely to stick to the old rules. One shot to the head was all it took for Aisha to dispatch the Gabon-born huntress and to send her to the afterlife.

Both Immortals met durign the Roman occupation of Palestine, circa 135-390 and Appius was a brutal general in those days, repressing any Jewish revolt agaisnt Rome. The revolt of Queen Zenobia and her capture by Rome is the incident that fueled the hatred of Lazarus toward Baro, since the Roman had a hand in her defeat and humilation.

    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.

    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.

    The Apostate may have been involved in the executions of the following missing Immortals who may have opposed the Sacred Order :

    Arthur Pendragon who co-founded the Knights of the Round Table
    The fabled Black Mambas of Southern Africa
    The Lady of Lesbos
    The Leucos Island exiles : Ajax of Aegina, Antilochus of Pylos, Diomedes of Aetolia, Menelaus of Sparta, Odysseus of Ithaca. All survivors of the Trojan War.
    Judith of Bethulia who once decapitated Holofernes.
    The Four Heroes of Vietnam myth.

    And scores of others the Watchers don't know.

    UNHOLY ALIANCE
    Richeard of Mercia and Aldrich Monk have met on neutral grounds and decided on a truce. The Club allies itself with the SIS and with Ravenwood in order to survive the ongoing mini-Gatherings and fight together any headhunting Immortals who could crawl out of the woodwork. Both groups have made lethal enemies over the centuries and there are many who would like to wipe both the SIS and the H. Club out of the Immortal scene.

    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.

    Adventure in Las Vegas

    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 three) 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 this pair of Immortals is that they were too concerned about the other’s welfare to properly concentrate
    on their fights; Amanda always was lucky in her battle, never having been a true player of the Game, Wolfe relied too much
    on his bravura and machismo determination to protect Amanda. Swenja and Lootje are centuries old experienced fighters
    and killers and have no qualms with klilling non-combattant Immortals as proven by their pas misdeeds.
    Amanda and Nick often talked about how they wanted to die side by side, together. The Thelma and Louise of the Immortal
    world made their wish come true when Amanda’s luck ran out and Nick’s resolve faltered when Amanda’s pretty head
    rolled on the ground.

    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.

    For a disfigured immortal woman living a recluse life on the outskirts of Seattle, Elspeth Nelson certainly had a lot of love in her life : two hundred lovers, six husbands ! She must have charisma to burn, to compensate for the hideous scar marring her neck and face. It is a scar she received during her first battle against immortal Ranil Senyaka, a headhunter from Sri Lanka, with an habit of using a whip in his battles, torturing his quarries before the kill. Elspeth Nelson was unfortunate enough to meet him in Sri Lanka in 1847 and fell before him in spite of the traing received from Betsy Mitchell. And yet, the strenght within her allow her kick Senyaka away and grab her sword. Senyaka lost his head after destroying a beautiful young immortal. For a time.

    Born from English parents who settled in Colombo, Sri Lanka, the young Elspeth had the habit of fleeing the good society of Colombo to go downtown for parties, and coming home on the tip of her foot around 5 in the morning before her parents awoke from slumber. Neither her father's authority, nor the teachers, nor the nuns could prevent her from living the life she wanted. And then she died during New Year's Eve after drinking too much. When Betsy Mitchell, her chaperone and friend of her mother, brought her home, she pretended everything was fine and secretly taught her of immortality, training her in sword fighting. Elspeth was determined to survive the Game and also to enjoy life at its fullest.

    Although keeping her scar, Elspeth had this energy and beauty within her, this spark of life that kept her going and attracting men to her. Those who didn't run from her in horror were greatly compensated : travels around the world, a lot of love, a wonderful companion with amazing tales about world history and secret stories.
    Sex too allowed her to keep her men : Elspeth spent fifty years in China with May-Ling Shen and Katherine in Greece, teachers who taught her the way of men and women, how they interact with each others and can please each others. This is how she became such a charismatic person to watch.

    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...

    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.

    Not much is known about the Immortal posing as hunt-god Khonvoum, a would be-God living among the pygmees of present DR of Congo, terrorizing the locals and once defeated in combat by Sunda Kastagir, escaping with his head when he jumped over a cliff and disappeared, thought long dead. He re-appeared in the 17th century when the Portugal invaded Kongo and was known as a demi-God and immortal satyr, reported active by Hippolito Cabral’s Watcher. He was ruling a collective of pygmee warriors who obeyed his every whims. Since then he was MIA and only re-appeared for the ongoing Gathering.

    Khonvoum can be best described as the Gavrie lLarca of the African continent, a madman and would-be deity who could be a considerable threat to the world if the combined power of all the Immortals fell in his hand, assuming one belives in the mythical Prize. We never knew what he truly looked like before he started hunting in Kenya, we felt he would be of dimunitive stature like any Pygmee but no : he looks like a well-built martial artist who trains regularly, very good with the sword. Carrying a cool demeanor, hiding a ferocious temper.

    His battle against the legendary Fire from the Sky was short because the Kenyan Highlander as other priorities in life than the Game : she protects Elewechi of the Nok, an ancient Immortal woman dedicated to the preservation of mankind's knowledge and histiory who has been at work for centuries, searching and preserving the cultures of African countries. Both women are members of the Immortal Order of the Sacred Knowledge. The Sacred Order for short. They are a close-knit group of Immortals dedicated to collecting and preserving the Lost Knowledge of Mankind, holding it until they deem mankind is ready and worthy enough for its secrets to be made known.
    Elewechi is a Pathfinder, while Fire from the Sky is a Serntinel. When Khonvoum came aftet the two women, the Kenyan shot first and asked question later, her sword ready for a quick, final stroke.

    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.

    Roster of Immortals Status : Deceased
    Date :17 May 2018
    Place : Nicosia, Cyprus
    Victor : Safiyah Khan

    The encounter of Jason Samaris and Olympe Dimitrakos with the band of roving headhunting migrant children who have been active since the beginning of the migrant crisis ended with the two Immortals taking out the band’s ringleaders, two Middle Eastern Immortals using the children as pawns in the Game as they have been doing for centuries.
    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 ?

    May 2018
    Watcher Bureau, Levant



    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.

    Watcher Bureau, Levant

    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

    Damon Case

    Notable characteristics : 6'6"" Receding hair
    Psyche destroyed, replaced with Naseeran

    Date : 7 May 2019
    Place : Jerusalem
    Victor : Ishtar of Erech
    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

    Apostle, Pathfinder of the Sacred Order
    Watcher : Leila Abouab

    Born a Bedu, Khalidah was a desert nomad when she knew her first death during the onslaught of a tribal war; she died by accident since the ancient Bedu followed a code of extreme chivalry and wouldn't voluntarily kill young children. Long-lived players of the Game Hazeem Al Bachrim and Carter Wellan had been living among her clan, when her accidental death occured. They had been caught in a sand storm and rescued by Khalidah's father. The leader of Khalidah's tribe welcomed them among his people and in return, Hazeem and Carter became the protectors of the little tribe.
    If it hadn't be for Hazeem and Carter, Khalidah wouldn't have survived the first century of her immortality, since a lonely young girl couldn't survive by her own means.Since the day she parted ways with her friends, Khalidah learnt many ways to survive the Game, to use her feminity to rob rich men's hearts and money. She also took a few heads, immortals who thought her to be an easy kill. Five years ago, Khalidah settled in Medina as a housemaid, worming her way in the heart and powerful money of her new master, fellow immortal Enver al'Ghazir. I guess Khalidah got tired of running and decided to choose an immortal ally for the time being. Yet, I'm afraid for her because I haven't seen the young girl in weeks and feel I have to put her on the missing roster of immortals status.

    Asima Abdelhay
    21 June 1907

    Since 1965 Khalida al-Najiran has been playing the Game with passion, scourging the Western Asia immortals and going in any Islamized country of the world in search of the next Quickening, gaining in reputation and paralleling Safiyah Khan’s vigor though both women aren’t alike : Safiyah fights in the name of Allah, Khalida for power and strength. Currently, Khalida is an international courrier, an occupation which allows her to travel constantly, though we wonder what she is doing in Tehran those days, it is hardly a welcomign place for women.

    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.

    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.

    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.

    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.

    On 14 January 2019, people took their children to see the military hardware the Royal Thai Army put on display in the Children’s Day event
    at the Royal Thai Armed Forces headquarters on Changwattana Road on Saturday. Among the visiting children was an Immortal one who met with Kit Samak. Tense words were exchanged, Kit seemengly knew the child, to all appearances, a 10 years old boy. The boy didn't introduce himself and left Samak to join his "parents", no doubt a couple of mortals unaware of the child's immortality and who had adopted him in one orphanage institution of Thailand. Tentatively identified as "John Doe", an enquiry wa ordered to find the identity of the boy, how he met Kit Samak in the first place and wether he is a player of the Game or not.
    Three days later, after Kit Samak was found decapitated in a seedy, out of the way street of Bangkok, it was discovered Boon-nam was a seasoned player of the Game who outlived a fair number of Immortals from Southeast Asia, playing the innocent new Immortal and killing his unsuspecting quarries. Kit Samak is the latest in a long series of dead Immortals who where a bit too trusting toward the poor little guy. The fact that Boon-nam is a kickboxing prizefighter ought to have been a dead giveaway, a warning that this was a tough little fellow they took in hteri own homes.

    First recorded sighting : 1822; Pematangsiantar,
    Sumatra, taught the Game by Giovanni Caboto

    In 1999, Andrew Kaspis' body was found by his Watcher, headless, after being missing for one week. Not only did it remove an excellent player of the Game from the world, but also a brillant researcher on the verge of finding cures for some of mankind's plagues such as heart diseases. But I'm not writing Kaspis' final report. His death is linked to the activities of a fearsome headhunter, not only an immortal but also a genuine headhunter : born in Indonesia around the 17° Century, Ramelan of the Batak hailed from a culture that saw men bring the art of eating human flesh to the ranks of science. Giovanni Caboto, aka John Cabot, immortal, visited Batak land on February 1820. His ship had to put in for water at Tapanuli, a very large bay a quarter of the way down the Sumatra coast to Bencoolen. The country here was inhabited by a proto-Malay race called the Bataks. His friend and Watcher Marsden, in his History of Sumatra, had said the Bataks were cannibals. So had some earlier Portuguese explorers.There was something too in Marco Polo's 'Travels' to that effect. Raffles found 'the Bataks are not a bad people, notwithstanding they eat one another. They are not savages, for they write and read, and think as much or more than those brought up in our national school'. He admits that 'the Bataks' 'state of society is very peculiar'.
    Cabot made an educated man out of Ramelan, teaching him of the Western world, but also of the Game, of Quickenings and the power they gave. Since cannibals also believe severing an ennemy's head and eating his flesh will give them his powers, Ramelan made a point of challenging every immortal he met in Southeast Asia, taking their heads and keeping them as trophies, shrunken.
    After parting company with Stein, Ramelan went back to Sumatra were he met up with immortal pirate Siah-Seck ("Black Dog") with whom he hooked up and started plundering the China sea, ransacking ships, taking heads and making quite a name for himself : Ramelan, the immortal cannibal who will take your head and also your body ! One century later, Ramelan might perfectly have integrated the ways of the "civilized" world, but still : he is the ultimate headhunter of the immortals community.

This time Boon-name picked on somebody his own size and that was the end of him. Alyssa was a kickboxing champions with centuries of practice and proved to be his match. It alsi helps when the quarry is immobilised with manacles as Alyssa is prone to do when facing other Immortals.

    The movie ‘Lilet never happened‘ featuring the life of an underage prostitute in Manilla had for main actress an actual teen prostitute called Lilet, aka Alyssa Bautista, a street teen fending for herself in the Philippines since 1886, the years of her first sighting. She lived a life of thievery and prostitution, on the fringes of society and where the Game was concerned taking advantage of her youthful looks, taking immortals off-guard with a knife, manacles, or poisoned cosmetics before taking their heads. Be they merchants for a foreign power, businessmen, tourists or the odd sexual predator, they fell to her sword and we are positive that a fair number of missing immortals on our roster are among her known quarries. While the movie depicting her life is heart-breaking, and tells hard truths about underage prostitution in
    Southeast Asia, Alyssa made her choice in life, or maybe she lives this life because she knows no other way to live. Her latest quarry was master escapist Harry Houdini, once a friend of Highlander Duncan MacLeod, who got suspicious of Alyssa’s defenseless looks, having had a bad experience with another Immortal child in Spain four years ago. Alyssa tried her trick with the manacles but you cannot fool a master escapist and soon Alyssa’s pretty head roled on the floor, her powerful Quickening wrecking the back-alley where she lured the great Houdini.

    From the Records of the Tribunal :

    After Marie Laveau's death on the 28th April 2019, her Field Watcher looked into her private cove and found dolls that strangely looked like the Immortals killed during the New Orleans Jazz & Heritage Festival 2019.The Watcher Bureau for US Southeast theorizes Marie Laveau, Voodoo priestess, used Voodoo dolls to gather known Immortals of the South to New Orleans for an artifically-triggered Gathering. Madame Laveau's shenigans worked beyond her expectations but she didn"t expect to face an Immortal like Hiawassee from the Cherokee people whose willpower and stamina were far stronger than Laveau's magical powers. Voodoo works on the supersticious and ignorant and it didn't work on Hiawasee.

    Where other immortals of the Southeastern states died in the Immortals War, Django and Deondra survived by stying hidden, having understood that one the immortal scene if one wants to live long and prosper, one has to be discreet and no stand among the main cast. So Django and Deondra hve been spending the better parts of the 20th century and early 21st in small towns, moving from one place to others,evading hte attentions of headhunters like Howard Crowley, Peter Kanis and Tyler king. The tall, dark/blode, nasty types in trenchcoat. When one would come around, it was time to move on.There was not a problem a trailer car wouldn't solve and so they lived, like bohemians, constantly on the road, on the lookout for those preying on their kind, always alert. They didn't become paranoid, however : they were like an old couple who had been through the Blitzkrieg in their youth and were ready for anything. during the War, they found an old Indian burial site in the Evergladesand stayed there for one year, until the immortal grapevine assured them all the villains had bit the dust. Django and Deondra are now in Tampa, FL, but their sixth sense is always on alert.

    With François Marchette having recently relocated to New Orleans, we can expect him to reunite with an old missing ennemy of his, Cartier LeTorve, a criminal mastermind from Quebec who had words with the Frenchman in 1836 and was first spotted ibn our records as a French Canadian soldier and desertor who ran away from the army of Canada with the pay righfully belonging to the men in his regiment. In the followingn twenty years he used his money wisely to create a criminal empire in the Big Easy before he was confronted by Marchette and was forced to simulate a public death. He never re-appeared since but we suspect him to still be at large. Maybe even here I nNew Orleans,
    waitign for us to spot him again. And possibly to resume his quarrel agaisnt the old Napoleonic soldier.

    Marchette never forgot his teacher's most important lessons about immortality : "the head that stands above the crowd is the one that gets chopped off", and this is why although he was trained by the best swordman in Russia, Marchette always kept a low profile, staying out of the Game for most of his immortality and seldom taking a head - only when forced to do so, or to protect someone close to him. One of the younger immortals, Marchette likes his quiet life here, in the Big Easy, living with his mortal lover Constanza and avoiding other immortals. It is a good life, and Marchette doesn't want it any other way.. An honorable man, Marchette still lives by an outdated moral code where women seldom play the Game and Immortal children are children, not wolves in sheep’s clothing. Ohane Munroe is in town ,he’d better behave.

    Aristide Gumbel didn’t even recognize Ohane Munroe, the girl he raped in 1850 whom he didn’t recognize as an immortal, so drunk that he was on moonshine. But Ohane Munroe never forget him and swore to get to him someday. Finally she found him in Baton Rouge, the herbalist living satisfied of his immortality. Ohane pretended to be an innocent young immortal while Aristide pretended to be a nice guy, not the sexual predator he truly is. When he made the moves on her, Ohane stabbed him with a poisoned dagger, and while Aristide was reeling in shock, she picked her short sword and took his head. His Quickening burnt his house down, Ohane was free from her nightmares at last.

    Elisa Durée, May 2013

    Seven years after her confrontation against Gumber, Ohane has been playing the Game patterning herself after the fabled Kenneth, playing the innocent, posing as a lost little girl. She could fool Andrew Breeland the photographer – and the first disciple of Kage after the latter’s reconversion into a guru – and the clueless François Marchette, bit not Marie Laveau! Ohane felt the black woman could be a big sister to her, at least before she took her head, but Marie saw through Ohane’s scam and made short work of the Immortl pest.

    Marie LaVeau was an illegitimate mulatto born in Saint Domingue, Haiti in 1794. Her father, Charles LaVeau, was a wealthy white planter, and her mother, Marguerite Darcantel, an African slave. Raised with Catholic teachings, she arrived in New Orleans in 1809 after a slave revolt and originally made a living as a hairdresser. She was first married in 1819 to Jacques Paris, an immortal, but he died soon after the wedding to the sword of Baron Samedi, vaudou master who turned her to immortality too and made her the vaudou pristress she is today.
    Marie was practicing voodoo and selling charms as early as 1830 and was married again around 1835 to Louis Glapion. When a hurricane hit New 0rleans in 1895, this second Marie LaVeau was seen floating down river on a log singing voodoo songs, this was the same Marie, impersonating her daughter. Ever since Marie has been reigning on the underground of New Orleans, rumored to be a never aging witch with the power to raise the dead and to command to lightning's. All bow to her will and any Immortal foolish enough to challenge her mystreriously disappeared in the bayou, never to be seen again. When the Gathering came, Marie Laveau used voodoo to survive, but her plan backfired when she faced an Immortal woman stronger than she was.

    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

    Most recent base of operations : Spain, no fixed adress
    Occupation : Travels guide writer
    Prior occupations : Revolutionary, soldier in
    Prince Charles Stuart’s army, innspkeeper
    Roster of Immortals Status : Deceased
    Date : 7 July 2019
    Place : Madrid
    Victor : Frances Drummond
    Watcher : Rahne Sainclair

    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.
