    Is there anyone out there who can e-mail me (or just post here) a detailed list of all the stuff published by Chaosium for the Elric game?

    I'm after all titles and, ideally, year of release, for both the original Stormbringer and the Elric! reissue.

    Eternally grateful....

    Great Old One, I have most of the rulebooks and supplements from the 3rd edition of the rules (which was reformatted in hardback by Games Workshop) up to the 5th, plus Elric! game and supplements. I missed out on edition 1 and 2 (the boxed sets) because I was young and penniless and unschooled as to the value of such things (the 1st boxed set was آ£40 quid, a pretty penny in those days) I have much of the information you seek but have been sitting on my reply because I was initially, admittedly, too lazy to dig out all those old books. If I can work out something with Berry regarding image hosting, I'll see if I can scan the front and back covers of them in high quality so you can see what they look like, too. Year of publication and accuracy will be assured as they are now here on my desk in a big pile.

    Will be back in touch soon....

      Here's what I've come up with so far. My collection only starts from the 3rd Edition so without doing some net research my info is vague for 1st and 2nd edition stuff. I'll add to this when I can find out more. I'm currently doing some scans for the gallery section of the site so eventually you'll be able to see examples of what they looked like over there.

          Slight correction -

          2nd edition is a full sized boxed set. The only change was a short list
          of errata on the inside front cover of the rulesbook.

          I was going to list all the 1st/2nd edition supplements GM left out,
          but the link he provided covers it all.

          If you want a brief summary of contents, I can provide it. I have
          everything but the 1st edition boxed set.

          Should also add the Corum supplement published by Darcsyde under
          license from Chaosium.

            Cheers.
            As you say, the link pretty much filled all the gaps in the original post, but it was more the later stuff I was interested in anyway, as I've been a bit out of touch with gaming in the last ten years or so. I wanted to see what I was missing. Although with all the controversy going on in the Q&A, I suppose it's a bit "politically incorrect" of me to have ever mentioned it!!

              Well, I think we carry on until we are shut down. :!:

              I don't know what has gone on historically between old Chaosium and MM. Hopefully that will find some sort of resolution in the future. I know Lawrence personally, he's a very pleasant and honourable person as well as a huge advocate of MM's work. His contribution to promoting interest in MM's Eternal Champion writing has been immense.

              It's a shame that the RPG works have not generated more sales, as the quality of the writing and game design is so very high. Looking at the list there are many hours of quality gaming to be had in MM's fantastic worlds.

                No one is going to shut down any conversation like this one.
                The cat spread its wings and flew high into the air, hovering to keep pace with them as they moved cautiously toward the city. Then, as they climbed over the rubble of what had once been a gateway and began to make their way through piles of weed-grown masonry, the cat flew to the squat building with the yellow dome upon its roof. It flew twice around the dome and then came back to settle on Jhary's shoulder. - The King of the Swords

                    Misquotes and impugns.

                    I don't know what has gone on historically between old Chaosium and MM. Hopefully that will find some sort of resolution in the future.


                    I know Lawrence personally, he's a very pleasant and honourable person as well as a huge advocate of MM's work.


                    Sorry to impugn LW's good name but from reading a lot of his messages on many sites he comes across ,at times, as irritated and cynical.Still he's "only human". Not a demi god called Morgelt.



                    His contribution to promoting interest in MM's Eternal Champion writing has been immense.

                    His contribution to promoting MM's Eternal Champion goes hand in hand with supporting his own job writing supplements for Chaosium.So a "teensy bit" of self interest does not seem out of place as part of his motivation.

                    It's a shame that the RPG works have not generated more sales, as the quality of the writing and game design is so very high.

                    I have found the quality of writing in Chaosium scenarios varies.What I will say about LW's writing is that it is of a consistantly high quality in comparison with the other supplements/scenarios.I think Stormbringer 5th edition rules are excellent.A pity that the artwork is patchy.



                    Darklord.


                    Looking at the list there are many hours of quality gaming to be had in MM's fantastic worlds.

                      Reminds me of the old Vic Reeves saying "You wouldn't let it lie, would you?" :lol:

                      Don't throw stones if you live in a glass house would be my advice to Loz on the subject.I find it ironic that he can't take a dose of his own medicine.He calls Moorcock a "snob" on a site Moorcock would not normally log on to....and someone calls Loz a "frustrated writer" on a site he normally doesn't log on to, and Loz finds it disappointing..boo hoo!.If Loz can't take it he shouldn't dish it out.His defence of "only human" is even more ironic seeing as his avatar on the Elric's Tavern site was Morgelt the demi god."only human" is no defence against the charge of making snide remarks behind peoples backs.Moorcock is not the only person to get Loz's cynicism.The varied people who post on the Q&A have been mocked for asking Moorcock on his opinions, then Loz goes and asks Moorcock for his opinion on some subject."Only human" might also be a lax defence of hypocracy too.
                      It was about time someone took a pin to his overinflated ego and brought him back down to earth with a bump.The moral of this tragedy or farce (take your pick)is that it may take six years of effort to establish a reputation on the net ,and one unthinking message to ruin that reputation.

                      It's a shame that the RPG works have not generated more sales, as the quality of the writing and game design is so very high. Looking at the list there are many hours of quality gaming to be had in MM's fantastic worlds.

                      All power to the gamers , but let's give some thought to who first wrote the stories the games are based on.
