Semaj asked this and I thought the answer was one worth sharing to remind those that maybe forgot or to inform those that maybe missed it the first time...

Having two opposing forces that can't die would make for an interesting story, but I can also see that making semaj nagirrac immortal would make everyone else want to make their characters immortal too.
What do you think?
Short answer: Yes.
Long Answer: There is a long standing history of The Immortals making even some of their staunchest enemies Immortal, if they have proven themselves worthy in battle. The reasoning being that despite propaganda to the contrary the only thing The Immortals are interested in is total warfare and the better the fight the better they like it. This view once learned by an Immortalized enemy has even seen some eventually join the Immortals. Others have fought against them. The Emperor even has four half brothers that have waged a never ending war since they rebelled against him. It's in the Wiki.
Of course every Immortal that can heeds the Emperors call to war but generally each group or individual is left to his own devices. Their drive to fight also means that like Genghis Khan the Immortals are truly Nomadic and although they may conquer Empires where ever they go and replace them with Immortal Law under the control of staunchly loyal mortal allies, usually as a means of raising new armies and making new weapons with which to fight, The Immortals themselves always move on over time, until eventually passing into myth. Many times the Emperor has abandoned conquered and defeated regions leaving everything to his mortal armies and set out with only the few hundreds of the Immortal Kin to lay waste somewhere else and start afresh gathering new forces from scratch. It's an acknowledged fact that boredom is the main factor for such actions.
Hope that helps you think something up. Enjoy!
