I'm looking through the Lion of the North, doing some prep work for my saga, and I see that (at least, in 3e history) Damhan-Allaidh's body disappeared after the Battle of the Great Light (now, apparently, renamed "Battle of the False Sun," according to HoH:S, p. 101). And, according to Brude, Highland magicians have the secret of the Horcrux (for lack of a better word).
I would be surprised if this is still canon, especially considering the insert on Rumors and Stories (ibid., p. 102) mentions that Damhan-Allaidh might have feigned his death and has been seen in the ninth and tenth century, but not since the Schism War.
So. My questions are:
1.Am I correct in interpreting the canon as being "Damhan-Allaidh is dead. Probably. We think...yeah, he's gotta be dead."?
2.Has anyone used a living Damhan-Allaidh in their saga? If so, how? And how did it work out?
3.I get the feeling that 3e let you do things that aren't possible in 5e (looking at Caitlin Suil Uaine's character sheet, for example, I have no idea how to pull off the faerie aging 10:1 thing she has). But, assuming that Brude is correct, how would one do a Horcrux with 5e rules (and, keep in mind that I don't have all the books). LotN describes it as an "ability to remove their soul and place it in an object. While the soul remains undisturbed, the wizard may not die. Even the most gruesome wounds heal, though the wizard's ability to feel finer human emotions deteriorates in proportion to the special healing." I doubt that it's something as simple as a malediction of Death Prophecy.
