Where the Old is New Again…

Near the end of the Chaosium’s Stormbringer and Elric! production run they produced a number of ‘cheap and cheerful’ monographs set in the Young Kingdoms. These brief booklets focused on aspects of the setting that could never have otherwise justified their own book supplement, but do much to bring the world Elric Kinslayer to life.

  • Old Hrolmar by Richard Watts

    Please note that this edition has been reformatted and updated for the Stormbringer! site.

    The last of Chaosium's published monographs, Old Hrolmar explores the Vilmarian city of the same name, and details how the home of Duke Avan Astran represents a bastion of change throughout of the Young Kingdoms.

    This monograph contains a complete guide to the Vilmirian city of Old Hrolmar, including its history, major locations and important residents. Like all supplements for the Stormbringer game published to date, this monograph is set in the year 399 YK, the year preceding Elric’s coronation as the 428th Emperor of Melniboné. Most of the material presented within Old Hrolmar is for the Gamemaster’s eyes only.

  • Chaos Cults of the Young Kingdoms by Charles Green

    Note, this edition has been reformatted and updated for the Stormbringer! site.

    The first of Charles' two monographs, this book details the Cults of Chaos as they stand in the Young Kingdoms. Handily divided into player's and gamemaster's sections, it introduces a myriad of details about ever-changing faces of the Chaos Gods, their worshippers and goals in this plane of existence.

    The conflict between the Lords of Law and Chaos, and the mediating force of the Cosmic Balance, is the central pole around which all of the Eternal Champion stories revolve. These beings, while godlike in power and scope, are “gods” in much the same way as the Greeks saw their divinities, i.e. as entirely human in their workings, full of lust and wrath, and as political an animal as any in existence. It is the conflicts between these beings that drives the Multiverse ever onwards, inspiring human agents to feats of tremendous heroism and despicable depravity. They are, in short, the prime motivators of the Balance, at once separate from it and forever enmeshed in its boundaries.

  • Gods of Law in the Young Kingdoms by Charles Green

    Please note that this edition has been reformatted and updated for the Stormbringer! site.

    The last of Chaosium's Stormbringer Monographs, Gods of Law in the Young Kingdoms (written by Charles Green- with large contributions from Richard Watts) is an exploration of the motivations, purposes and goals of the White Gods of the Multiverse.

    In this monograph, Charles delves into history and purpose of the Cults of Law, and the Holy Concordance of the White Lords. Additionally, he and others introduce the concept of using the Gods of Law as enemies in Stormbringer adventures, and supplies almost a dozen campaign seeds for your own ongoing stories.

    Further information includes the Barrier of Law, the entropic wall that protects so many planes from Chaos, as well as optional rules to reflect the powers of Law and Order.
