Admittedly, this hasn't stopped many from trying to discover the Termaxian method and recreate it, but, to date, there have been no successes, which only further strengthens the notion that the legends about Turms are just that -- legends. Other supposed means of achieving immortality include:
- A gift of the gods to their most devoted followers, though such a reward is usually taken to be granted in an otherworldly realm removed from the material world and is thus of little interest to those who seek to persist in the here and now.
- Lost magical spells from the days of the Ancients that grant the ability to warp all reality, including the aging process.
- The transference of one's soul into a vessel that is incorporated into an automaton, golem, or other artificial body.
- The seizure of the elven "secret" to immortality, based on the notion that unending life is not natural to elves but rather a process of some sort that they undergo while very young.
