21st May 2007 Throne of Orcus (Part 2)!

Okay, some of you may remember Part 1 of the Throne of Orcus adventure, well here is Part 2.

In honour of the release of the print version of the Immortals Handbook - Epic Bestiary: Volume One TODAY I'll be updating the website with a new (and hopefully interesting) article every day this week. Extra special thanks to everyone who has supported me and my work over the years - I honestly couldn't have got here without you.

How many 20th-level characters are there in your campaign world? Who is the highest level character in the galaxy?

Immortal Demographics

But what if the character has existed for hundreds, thousands or even millions of years?

Everytime you double a characters lifespan (in this case a double-double is a quadruple) where the typical lifespan is 100 years, increase their potential level by 10%.
