Re: Elric/Legend range of Runes.

It's on page 78 with the mrq2/EoM Core rules. Sorry, my mistake. I was not awake. On p77(and I have double checked the number) the last paragraph starts 'There are an unknowable number of runes.' So, I take this to mean that there is a Ranged Leeching rune out there somewhere. While we are on the s...

Re: Elric/Legend range of Runes.

This is specific to the Rune magic in the Elric RPG.The example I have in mind is the "Leech" Rune, which drains magicpoints from active Runes.If you vocalise it an direct it at say someone's active "Protection" rune (which gives Armor points), is there a range on it? According to p75 EoM CRB "its ...

I like the sound of this. Any idea of a release date, Spring, Summer or Autumn will be good answers?

Re: Romance In Legend?

Loz developed it (I'm sure Simulcrum can suss out what book it's from specifically- though I remember it being in Elric, I could be wrong). If memory serves, it could be applied to everything from romantic love decisions to a players feelings about his country or countrymen- whatever the player was...

Insanity in MRQ2/Legend

In the Elric of Melnibone CRB, p74, it states "Dreamtheives can cure insanity. Anyone with either temporary or permanent insanity can be cured of it with a Dreamthief's help......Steaing this dream removes the insanity and restores the individual to zero Insanity points." I cannot find any rules gov...

Re: Elric Rune Magic

Can anyone answer the following questions or do I need to make it up? I would like an official answer if possible to keep everything square. Thanks in advance. When casting the Heat Rune on a 2 litre pot of water would 1MP bring it to boiling point? If not how may MP's would it require? Or if it doe...

Re: Magic items for Elric

If they know the Heat Rune or sell the item to someone who does, then this other person can make a roll against their Rune casting skill to re-invest MP to re-power the item. In the above example you have mentioned selling the item. For the afore mentioned sword what would be an approximate sale va...

Re: Magic items for Elric

I know about inscribed items, I run the Elric game. Thank anyway. But they must be powered with magic points. I am looking at this subject and would appereciate some advice. eg. A sorcerer inscribes a Fire Rune on his sword, this will add one point of fire damage and cauterises the wound, negating ...

Selling slaves

I am going to run an Elric game in the near future and could do with some help on slave prices. The setting talks a lot about slaves but there appears to be no guide prices anywhere in the official source books.

Any opinions would be welcome.

Scale in the Young Kingdoms

Am I being stupid? I cannot find any distances in Elric of Melnibone, either in the Mongoose material or in any of Moorcocks works. I would like to know, for example, how far is from Ilmar to Karlaak.
