Back in February I got some of my late cousin's old gaming stuff. This includes his copies of the Mentzer Immortals rule books.

I think I mentioned previously that I have the PDF. In fact, I've had it for a very long time. I bought it online from Paizo back when they were publishing Dragon magazine and selling the old TSR catalog online. It was a different time.

But even though I've had the PDF for what, nearly 15 years? I was in Japan when I bought it and I've been in Korea for 12 now. So at least 13 years. But even though I've had it that long, I've never given it a deep reading.

Now I've got the physical books. I'm gonna start reading them this evening. I don't know that I'll do a "cover to cover" style series of posts, but expect lots of posts about it in the coming days/weeks.


  1. Just got back from reading the post you linked. Very sorry. As for the reading, that sounds fun.

  2. I will be very interested in a series of cover-to-cover posts on the Immortal set. I picked up hardcopies of the books a couple decades back (before the OSR "movement") but it's been years since I've read them. I know I felt the later Wrath of the Immortals book was a bit more practical for actual use...but more practical doesn't necessarily mean "better."

    Anyway, looks like a decent way to occupy some time.
