While the world of Elric and the Young Kingdoms have been the focus for the majority of the games based in the Multiverse, both Chaosium and Mongoose Publishing explored yet other aspects of the Eternal Champion.

Hawkmoon Box Set #2106-X
The Eternal Champion is a mystical hero who lives upon all planes of existence, in all ages and times. Whenever the greatest need arises, the Eternal Champion awakens to ensure mankind’s survival. His names are many: Elric, Corum, Erekose, Urlik, Hawkmoon, and a multitude of others. Into the thick of the fray he strides, heroic companions at his side.
Dorian Hawkmoon, Duke of Koln, is an incarnation of the Eternal Champion and the sworn enemy of the foul Granbretan empire. His homeland was ravaged, his people were murdered, and the twisted scientists of Granbretan sought to enslave Duke Dorian’s mind – thus the Jewel in the Skull.
Hawkmoon is an easily-played game of fantasy roleplaying, part of the Eternal Champion line of roleplaying games available from Chaosium. The game players create imaginary characters who adventure together through a vision of Earth as it might be, where magic is real and heroes exist…
This box contains everything you need to create and play such adventures.

THE SHATTERED ISLE is a supplement for the Eternal Champion series of roleplaying games. This series, currently consisting of the games Stormbringer and Hawkmoon, is based on the fantasy novels written by noted author Michael Moorcock. This book contains two sections: Additions and Scenarios.
ADDITIONS: contains new rules which are later used in the Scenarios. Included here are guidelines for vehicular and aerial combat and exotic and powerful weapons found in the New Fenian armory, more than 50 Beast Orders from the isle of Granbretan, and a glimpse into the daily routine of Oshol Nariva – a typical member of the Order of the Boar.
SCENARIOS: contains numerous adventures set on Tradic Millenium Earth. An extensive section titled Getting Here presents to the gamemaster capsulized methods for getting the adventurers involved with the SHATTERED ISLE scenarios, including a variety of options for both Young Kingdoms and Tragic Millenium Earth adventurers.
Any adventurer created for an Eternal Champion game will function without flaw in any scenario in the series. The strength of Law or Chaos on a plane may affect a character’s magical ability (demons take note!).
Hawkmoon: Adventures in the Tragic Millennium (Monograph #327)
This Chaosium Monograph work is a setting book for adventuring in Michael Moorcock’s Hawkmoon. It is neither a game in its own right nor a sourcebook in the traditional manner. Instead, this work is a distillation of a much larger, more complete sourcebook that will, we hope, see physical print at some time in the future [It didn’t]. The monograph series from Chaosium allows us to get at least the core of the Hawkmoon sourcebook into print, in a way that (we hope) satisfies most people. But for that to happen, we’ve had to make compromises – and we’d therefore ask of you to bear with us, and work with us by filling in the rules mechanics and system-specific gaps in a way that suits your players and your campaign style. The tools to do this already exist – in Chaosium’s Stormbringer 5th Edition and the Basic Roleplaying Players’ Book. Applying the mechanics from either or both of these superb resources should not be difficult for most Gamemasters.
Mongoose Publishing's Hawkmoon (Click to Expand)
In 2007, shortly after the publication of Elric of Melniboné, Mongoose Publishing looked to expand the realms of the Eternal Champion into the popular Hawkmoon setting. Written by Gareth Hanrahan, with contributions by Lawrence Whitaker and Bryan Steele, this game of the Tragic Millennium also utilised the Runequest ruleset, although unlike its ‘stable mate’ never saw an updated Runequest II/Legend edition.
Hawkmoon: The Roleplaying Game #MGP8119
Description – Core Rules/Setting Book
Author – Gareth Hanrahan
Published – 2007
Page Count – 160
ISBN – 978-1905850211
Note – Both a Hardcover (#MGP8119-HC) and Softcover (#MGP8119-HC) printing of this core rulebook was released.
Centuries after the Tragic Millennium, when the older order of Earth was washed away in fire and poison, Europe has been reduced to a land of squabbling princedoms, of monster-haunted wormwoods and empty, ruined cities. From the bleak and terrible island of Granbretan, the Dark Empire plots to conquer all the world. Their beast-masked legions, armed with flying ornithopters and sorcerous flame-lances, march on across the Silver Bridge to put all of France to the sword. The Madness of Granbretan will consume all the universe if not checked.
There are other powerrs in this strange world – relics of ancient sorcery, creatures bred of the chaos of the Tragic Millennium, mysteries beyond comprehension. The most mysterious of these powers is the Runestaff, which legend holds controls all fate. Those who swear by the Runestaff are enmeshed in destiny and their oaths will sweep them to their doom. Sometimes, the Runestaff chooses champions, manipulating events to put them where they must be to server its cryptic purpose.
The clash of powers is coming. Those few chosen by destiny will be pitted against the infinite evil of Granbretan.
Create your character. Choose your weapon. Accept your destiny.
For this was the great power of the Lords of the Dark Empire, that they valued nothing on all the Earth, no human quality, nothing within or without themselves. The spreading of conquest and desolation, of terror and torment, was their staple entertainment, a means of employing their hours until their spans of life were ended. For them, warfare was merely the most satisfying way of easing their ennui.
The Dark Empire of Granbretan reaches out to conquer the world! Within his life-sustaining Throne Globe, the immortal King-Emperor Huon raises a withered hand and a million beast-masked warriors charge across the Silver Bridge. They desire to conquer the world, to enslave all humanity so that the mad Granbretanians can indulge in their twisted lusts or depraved hatreds. No army in Europe can stand against the flame-lances and foul sorceries of the Dark Empire. No force in all the world can staunch the wounds they inflict – save for the eldritch influence of the Runestaff!
War is coming. Where will you make your stand against the Dark Empire?
This 128-page book details all the Byzantine depravities of glorious Granbretan. From its decadent nobility to its twisted history and infamous populace, Granbretan is the essential handbook to adventuring in this dark land. Rounding out this Hawkmoon supplement is a brand new adventure, designed to plunge adventurers head-first into the nightmare – Hunters of Granbretan!
Secrets of Tragic Europe #MGP8144

Hunters of Granbretan #MGP8131 (2009)
Dorian Hawkmoon, Duke of Köln, has recently passed over the Silver Bridge into Europe on his long journey to Persia as part of his reluctant mission from the King-Emperor.
Shortly after his passing, another adventure from Granbretan follows, entering the hive of wretchedness that is the city of Karlye.
This man, fleeing from the bull-masked Tauran Lords, carries with him a unique sword and gauntlet that he is determined will never fall into the hands of his former captors. Wounded, poisoned and exhausted – the man finally succumbs, leaving the ancient artefacts in the hands of a passing group of adventures.
It is not long before these adventurers find themselves in a deadly game of cat and mouse, hunted for the artefacts they have sworn to protect and pursued by the vicious Order of the Bull, under the command of the dastardly Rafe Thenblade, a noble of the House of Taurus itself!
