A really silly question (and I’m not even sure if i’m posting in the right forum), but: what’s an Immortal? Is there a clear reference to some work of fiction (like the elder gods in the map of Might)? Is the “hero cult” an element of the default setting?
As I read it, I think it doubles as a broad category for supernatural beings so that the gaming group can better fit to their needs, and also as an example of what characters can accomplish if the reach true glory.
My doubt was mainly about a missing reference that can help me to better understand the idea and how much can I stretch the concept to fin in my campaign. How do you interpret it?
