"I am Duncan Macleod, born 400 years ago in the Highlands of Scotland. I am Immortal, and I am not alone. For centuries we have waited for the time of the Gathering, when the stroke of a sword and the fall of a head will release the power of the Quickening. In the end, there can be only one."

Inspired by the film of the same name, this follows the life of Duncan MacLeod, clansman of Connor. Here in the modern day, Duncan must fend of old foes and make new friends. Some of the people of his past are still around, some are long dead, and some don't yet know their end is near. Duncan must choose his alliances carefully, because around every corner there is someone looking to take the head of the "Highlander".

Theme Music Composed and Performed by Queen.

Most people know the basics that serve as foundation for the story; Duncan MacLeod (Adrian Paul) is a four-hundred-year-old immortal who can only die if someone cuts his head. The problem is that there are other immortals out there, and when they kill one of their own they absorb his power. In the end, when the time of the Gathering arrives, there can only be one; and this moment is getting closer and closer. Since the goal is to cut their opponent's head, the fights are mostly with swords, and the choreography used in these scenes is believable and entertaining to watch. Read more
