Please try again later. My interest in D20 is usually non-existent but this is Elric so I am greatly interested, it actually faithfully adapts Stormbringer Chaosium’s Elric RPG to D20, and does a very good job.

The information contained within is great and totally fleshes out the Elrric mythos in D20 format, and I think it does a wonderful job at it. It is however all black and white, and some of the art is downright laughable. Well written, informative, art is good, erlic replay value is high for the Morrcockian gamer. Before this book there were multiple versions of the Stormbringer BRP system, changed somewhat and renamed ‘Elric!
There’s two types of customers who may look at this product: If you really are into Elric and want a faithful adaption, avoid this product. If you know nothing about Elric and just want some wild ideas that are interesting but ultimately bustedthis product might prove a measure of worth. I am the former, and my rating reflects this. I guess the best way to describe just how careless the conversion was is to show some “stats” on a few saga personalities: And when did he use magic?!?

Didn’t Melnibone fall when he was fairly young? And the tin foil hat award goes to The terrible drawing of him and the gaggleload of “demon items” [he, and almost everyone has] only adds to all this. These are just the very basics. Seriously, do a google search outside of Amazon and you’ll see what I mean.
My problem with this book, is that it is essentially a conversion of the Chaosium’s old Elric! That’s not bad in of itself, it’s just that the conversion seems to have been a rather shoddy and rushed job.
Just the bare minimum was changed from the original Elric game, the various sub systems like critical hits and allegiance were left pretty much untouched. Basically, the only stuff added for d20 is a handful of feats, and a new race Half Melnibonean. On the other hand, because it’s basically the same as the Elric! RPG, only for d20, that means it’s an excellent book, like the original Elric! It’s well written, and gives a very good IMHO overview of the Elric Saga, a decent but not great overview of Elric’s original world, as well as descriptions of characters and critters from the books.
Still, even then it’s got a couple problems. One of the common things in the Elric and other Eternal Champion novels is the concept of traveling to other planes. Elric does it a lot, yet it’s not mentioned at all in this product. It’s also got a really misleading section entitled ‘Mass Combats’, which just tells you to buy a miniatures game of your choice at a gaming store.
So, all in all, it’s a very good book, but somewhat disappointing if you already have the Elric! I’d give it a 5 for people who don’t have it, and a 1 for those that do. Chaosium, the fine purveyors of Call of Cthulhu for many many years and the oft relaunched RPG versions of the Elric of Melnibone have thrown their hat in the d20 ring with this first offering.
DLoM is Elric d And the folks at Chaosium have not let us down. The package is tight, conscice and filled to the brim with vital info for running a d20 Young Kingdoms campaign. All the main players atre faithfully presented, details for adapting Melnibonean and Pan-Tangean magic to the d20 formula and the surprising detail of summonings and pacts that were so vital to the Elric storyline all contibute to an amazing package.

If you love Elric, then this is the game for you I was very disappointed when this product came out. Potentially it could have been the highlight of the early d20 system’s open license, but the producers did a very 2nd rate job of putting together the materials.
The presentation was no better then a novice could’ve accomplished on a home pc. The artwork was old, the organisation was not updated at all for the new book and directly borrowed from prior products.
This setting elriv just waiting for someone who really cares to adapt it in a good light instead of rushing to make a quick buck. I expected more from such a fine company as Chaosium.
