A Dead God’s Dream by Dean Paolillo

A Scenario for Elric of Melniboné ruleset

Set in the years prior to Prince Yyrkoon’s rebellion, A Dead God’s Dream throws veteran characters into intrigue and adventure in the twin capitals of Oin and Yu – Dhoz-Kam. Written by Dean Paolillo, this Elric of Melniboné adventure is easily converted into the Stormbringer ruleset.

A Dead God’s Dream is an Elric of Melniboné scenario for 4-5 Veteran characters or equivalent, one of which must be a sorcerer. This story assumes that Yyrkoon still dwells in Melniboné plotting Elric’s demise. He has not fled Imrryr, acquired the Mirror of Memory and conquered Dhoz-Kam. Games Masters who wish set this story after Yyrkoon flees through the Shade Gate can do so with ease.
