Sanctum Secorum Episode #04 Companion: Elric of Melniboné

The  Sanctum Secorum Episode #04 Companion: Elric of Melniboné was written by Jen Brinkman, David Baity, Bob Brinkman, and Dieter Zimmerman. Art is by A6A7, ClkerFreeVectorImages, Fibonacci, and wiredwullff. The publisher is Sanctum Media. This product is produced in association with the Sanctum Secorum podcast.

This Episode Companion is based on Sanctum Secorum Episode 4: Elric of Melniboné, which discussed Elric of Melniboné by Michael Moorcock. The featured adventure was Blades Against Death, by Harley Stroh.

Within you will find:

Character Classes

Melnibonéan: These are not quite elves, and not quite human, although they are obviously one of the sources of DCC elves. Author Dieter Zimmerman provides a class that is pure Michael Moorcock, without the other Appendix N authors admixed.

Items

Artists’ Tools: These are the instruments of a Melnibonéan artist - an individual who would be known anywhere else as a torturer. Jen Brinkman is the author.

Melnibonéan Vitality Drugs: "On the isle of Melniboné grow many herbs and plants that do not grow anywhere in the Young Kingdoms. When combined the right way with minor sorceries, they can be used to create drugs that give vitality and vigor to one’s physical body." Dieter Zimmerman is the author.

Magic Items

Dragon Crown of Melniboné: Author Bob Brinkman describes the crown of the emperors of Melniboné.

The Mirror of Memory: "Perhaps one of the most dangerous artifacts of the ancient world, the mirror of memory steals and retains the memories of those who gaze into its silvery depths." Described by Bob Brinkman.

Ruby Throne of Melniboné: Extrapolating from the mythical/folkloric qualities ascribed to gems, Bob Brinkman suggests what qualities such a throne may possess.

The Sword of Earl Aubec: Stormbringer is not the only potent magical weapon in Michael Moorcock's multiverse. Author Dieter Zimmerman provides game statistics for the Sword of Aubec, the blade Elric bore before Stormbringer.

NPCs

The Emperor’s Artist: Jen Brinkman gives statistics to "the seniormost of Melnibonéan Artists," who "has the honor of receiving any captured enemies of the Throne." As a side note, Morhern the Exquisite (in The Revelation of Mulmo) is a nod to the "artists" of Melniboné.

Patrons

Arioch: David Baity provides a partial patron write-up of the Knight of the Swords, including invoke patron results, patron taint, spellburn, and the 1st level patron spell, fly’s lament.

Spells

Mists of Yyrkoon: This is a 2nd level wizard spell, by David Baity.

As with previous Companions, this volume can help the discerning Dungeon Crawl Classics judge determine how to stat up creatures from whatever movie or literature he likes.
