Re: Elric of Melniboné

I would like to add my regrets, if Mongoose decide to give it the heave ho, because the material that has been published already in the Legend format has, imo, been in keeping with the flavour of Moorcock's works whilst allowing the flexibility gamers require to make the world their own. There is al...

Re: Deus Vult getting a revamp!

I think it would be a good idea to have seperate player and GM books. All the players in our group have a copy of the rules, consequently, we all know about the 'bad guys', monsters and special items. This creates a problem for the GM when creating adventures. Also, extra material would be great. Ou...

Elric Timeline

Is there a timeline anywhere that can be used as a standard? In the Elric CRB there is a negative timeline from the destruction of the Young Kingdoms and some of the source books give dates but without any reference points. Any help would be appreciated.

Re: [Elric] The Whitelands ?

The Moorcock multiverse is so diverse that any society can be found anywhere in the miriad versions of the Young kingdoms. As long as the logic, or illogic, of the GM's world is followed it does not matter where you wish to put anything. The important thing to get right is the amount of enjoyment yo...

Re: Elric Runes on other planes...

Chaosium's Hawkmoon RPG from the 80's limits sorcerors from the Young Kingdoms to only 10% of their magical skills when transported to the Tragic Millenium.

Hope this helps.

Elric - Gift Enhanced Learning

Enhanced Learning - Results of Improvement Rolls are doubled (thus, a failed Improvement roll means a skill advances by 2 points, successful Improvements improves skill by x2 1D4+1.

The above is quoted from Cults of the Young Kindoms. Does it give the bonus to all skills or just one specific skill?

Ships crew

In Arms of Legend the ship descriptions have a value attributed to Crew, but, there is no explanation as to whether this value represents maximum crew, minimum crew or average crew. Can anyone enlighten me on this topic?

Elric, magic and High Speech

The Elric CRB states 'The percentage of the {magic skill} skill can never exceed the sorcerer's High Speech skill.' Does this mean that the magic skill cannot be raised higher than the High Speech or that the magic skill can be higher but the chance of success is only as great as that of the High sp...

Elric: Powering down runes

Is it possible to reduce the number of MP's invested in a Rune? EG. A sorcerer casts a three MP Fire Rune to smother a bonfire. After extinguishing the bonfire he decides to recoup two MP while leaving the rune active, on one MP, to control the campfire. Or does he have to cancel the active rune and...

According to the rules, if a Rune Casting(rune) test is a critical the caster uses one less MP to power the Rune, if only one MP is used it is free. What happens if a character inscribes, for example, the Light Rune on a coin, the test result is a critical and the rune activates at no MP cost, accor...

Has anyone else noticed that, while the text is appropriate for each entry, the stat blocks for Ogre and Orc in MoL are the same? Is this correct, and if not, where can I find the ammedment?

More Deus Vult

This is a setting that needs more material. We have recently finished the second part of our campaign. Our GM said he could do with some more resource material so he can provide us with new challenges.

So, more DV, please.

Re: Any update on when S&P will return?

It needs to be publicized, though. There are quite a few gaming sites now that attract attention - Beasts of War, for instance. I have never seen any Mongoose stuff promoted on there. I think contact needs to be made - whether for an S&P Kickstarter programme, or just to promote the company general...
