This all happened an *extremely* long time ago. It all started in the year 3,500 B.C. Long enough for you? Thought so. Anyway, on with the story...
There had been Immortals around for at least the past couple of hundred years. They knew something weird was going on with them, they just didn't know what. Some attributed their long lifespan and miraculous healing properties to the gods, or decided they were gods in their own right. Others simply didn't know what to make of it. One of the Immortals, quite possibly the oldest and, quite possibly was the world's first boyscout. He figured that if evil K'Immies were going to run around and try to take over the world he would have to find a way to stop them. In his long life he had noticed several things. 1. H e got a buzzing sensation in his head when another Immie approached. 2. An Immie *can* be killed, if he or she loses his or her head. 3. If an Immie loses his/her head the closest Immie receives what he termed, a Quickening. Being a fairly smart guy, he decided that by using these little tidbits of information he could turn Immortality into a sort of game. Not only that, he starte the rumor that the last surviving Immie gets a *Prize* and he came up with rules for his game.
When he finally got all this figured out he traveled around and whenever he met an Immiw he would either fight them or teach them. So, as you can see, the game, the gathering, and the prize grew from there and stories began to spread.
Sometime around 2065 B.C. a new Immie became, well, Immortal. His name was Methos. Maybe you've heard of him. Well, after he became Immortal he didn't understand what had happened. After all, he was supposed to be dead, right? It just happened that the, uh, *first* Immortal found Methos and, to make a long story short, became his teacher.
One day, some time later the *first* Immortal met up with a guy known as Kronos. (Now you know why I took the time to add the Methos paragraph) Kronos was a power hungry guy that thought he could get whatever he wanted through violence. Since Kronos was still around in the 1990s you can probably guess what happened. Yep, Kronos won the fight. This is why Methos was always careful not to give Kronos a reason to take his head. So, now you know what happened in the beginning, and, if you're lucky, you might see the end. *grins*
See there's the end *lol*
