Sláine's great because it has a strong backbone of Celtic source-material (e.g. riastrad , chariots, taunting, earth-based magic, "Druid's egg", etc.) 8) , but I don't care for the more fantastic elements of the milieu like the flying ships, and other stuff. :roll: I cobble together a Celtic-ish ca...

Way to dredge up an old thread! :D

Crom is free, AFAIK.
It is limited in its catalogue of characters, but suitable for titles, headings, etc.

+1. Like Last of the Mohicans, typical 19th century take on Native Americans. James Fennimore Cooper and all that.

Mr. Quilliams: Is/Was/Would there ever be any poster-sized versions of these great covers ever released? I think that would be an AWESOME concept. *AHEM MONGOOSE!* :wink:

What was the RL basis for the Ligureans, if any? Maybe that's a good place to look for more inspiration... *skips off to wikipedia* *comes back* Looks like there is still debate about who the Ligurians [sic] are: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ligures They may or may not have been a Celtic group.

Instead of Tito's Trading Post they should have called it Hyborian Harrods or Thurian Wal-Mart! :lol:

My replacement 2E book just lost its cover.

Thanks for the (re)views! :D Last time I read an Elric tale was 25-30 years ago! :shock: All I remember is that, in the beginning, someone was being tortured (for information, I presume). I've heard rumours that a publisher will reprint the original stories, but I don't know if they're what I rememb...

ELRIC RPG rules vs. d20 and Conan RPG

Hello all! I've been a fan/player/GM of the Conan RPG for a couple of years and hang out mostly on those boards, but would like to learn something about the Elric RPG, if possible. Firstly, I wish to know how different/similar the rules are to the mainline d20 system for one thing (as seen in the SR...

Does that mean that they will have better-made LW books for us finally?


I'd like to send back my FftD I got last year that wasn't made too well. Is the proper contact rveal@mongoospublishing.com or something like that?

I don't have Messantia, but I do have Shadizar, and regarding that one...it's a mixed bag. The map fiasco was horrible, but there is some good crunchiness in the texts. I rarely read anything at all about Messantia, which is probably not a good thing.
