Immortals Set for Classical D&D
Item Code: #1017
Title: D&D Immortals Rules Set 5
Editor: Frank Mentzer
Format: box, 52 page rules book, 32 page book
Comments: This boxed set was designed to take Classical D&D a 36th level character who has completed a special series of tasks and quests and allow me to become an Immortal. Immortals were the deity-like figures in Classical D&D. As an Immortal, the character could be played through another 36 levels in a special Immortals campaign. This was an interesting idea. Unfortunately the rules were probably only understood by the designer, Frank Mentzer. After the Rules Cyclopedia was published, a revised and much more understandable set of rules for Immortals was published in The Warth of the Immortals boxed set. This was the final box in a set of 5 boxed sets designed by Frank Mentzer to take characters from 1st to 36th level and possibly beyond into the realm of the immortals with 36 additional levels. This was the standard version of Classical D&D TSR used from 1983 onward.
