Day 18 of the 30 Day D&D Challenge.
18. What is your Favorite Immortal?
“I am Connor MacLeod of the Clan MacLeod. I was born in 1518 in the village of Glenfinnan on the shores of Loch Shiel. And I am immortal.”
Running back to the outer planes, I’m going to go with the demon lord Orcus.
With his goat-like appearance, his rod of death, and claiming dominion over all undead, Orcus is an outstanding combination of classic demon imagery and fantasy notions. His massive size and bloated form further combines power with decadence, as befits a demon. I’m not sure why later editions began drawing Orcus as if he’d gotten a gym membership and a celebrity pharmacist to supply all his steroid needs. Give me the classic Orcus any day.
Though I must admit to having one other favorite immortal. Hey, I can’t be the only one whose gaming group kit-bashed rules for playing Highlander.
An immortal’s got to pay the bills too.
