    What is a Demon?

    If anyone is interested there are some alternative rules for Stormbringer fifth edition that allow a sorceror to summon creatures from another plane that aren't generally classed as demons that could be used for Magic world, if you want that sort of summoning to be part of your games. "The summoning skill is a useful measure of the general magic proficiency of a character and can be used in a simple way to deal with the summoning of creatures that are predefined as coming from another plane, such as the Creatures of Matik, the Elenoin, the Steeds of Nirhain, or even a Vadagh from Corum's world, an Eldren from the ghost-worlds of Erekose's Earth, or a traveller of the spheres like Wheldrake the poet." http://www.stormbringerrpg.com/docs/Alternate Magic.pdf

    Have you seen the beautiful covers to the new Runequest books?

    Summoning and Power: Magic

    If you are looking for some summoning rules that might be compatable with the Magic from the BGB you might want to have a look at these. http://www.stormbringerrpg.com/docs/Alternate Magic.pdf

    Escaping the end of the world

    Whatever gave you that idea? This comic collection, written by Moorcock, has an Elric that never takes up the Horn of Fate. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Michael_Moorcock's_Multiverse And there is a reality where Hawkmoon fails to become the Eternal Champion and a dreamquesting Elric has to rescue that world from Granbretan. “Every world? There are others?" "An almost infinite number. It was into one of these I offered you the chance of escape.”Hawkmoon dropped his head in thought. “Worlds where our history has taken a different turn. Where the Empire never rose to power?”“Aye-and where that power has been divided or successfully resisted.”The Warrior in Jet and Gold instructs Dorian Hawkmoon –The White Wolf’s Son. https://www.sfsite.com/07b/ws204.htm There are even two versions of Terhali the Green Empress, mentioned in passing in the Stormbringer novel, that Moorcock wrote. One is in a Conan comic, the other very different version is in the second set of Corum stories, both of which are written by Moorcock.

    I remember a spell that has a portable house from these books, that I thought would be a cool thing to have for a party of player characters.

    Escaping the end of the world

    I thought that the events of Stormbringer took place in a multiverse. I'm sure that Moorcock wrote a comic that has an Elric that escapes the destruction of the Young Kingdoms, but since this is a multiverse why not have an Elric assisted by the player characters that stop the destruction of the Young Kingdoms? I could envision a scenario where Sepiriz gets the PCs to go on a quest to obtain some maguffin to enable chaos to be defeated and balance restored. Maybe that maguffin lies in another cosmic realm like The Southern Reaches, the mass of floating pieces that is The Shattered Earth from Fractured hopes or The Dragon Empire of Dragon Lines, or Mythic Iceland, who knows? The GM does.

    Escaping the end of the world

    So why not run your own Magic World style game where refugees come from a "world that was consumed by chaos"? You are the GM.

    Escaping the end of the world

    After reading this thread I thought why not have Stormbringer characters escape the end of the world by taking the moonbeam roads to The Southern Reaches of Magic World? It would save time on any rules conversion as the rules are very similar.

    Swords of Cydoria. WOW

    Use the Force young padawan and all things may be possible! https://drive.google.com/file/d/0B6xE1pCRjmlNaWwxWTNmbDZvSHc/edit Chris Conkle's blog is here if you want to check it out. http://cydoria.blogspot.co.uk/

    Swords of Cydoria. WOW

    I just downloaded that free scenario. Chris Conkle puts a lot of effort in to his creations. I'm very impressed.

    Swords of Cydoria. WOW

    I've seen some supplements in my time but Swords of Cydoria is well worth the money I paid for it. There is a huge amount of stuff in the monograph. And the background is very well written, detailed and highly entertaining. There is a millennia of play in that one book.

    Height and weight for PCs

    Why are you still using Legend when a more detailed system is around? Mythras is an updated version of Legend, and has a good height and weight table on page 9. It differentiates body types into lithe, medium, and heavy.

    Luther Arkwright, why are the Disruptors doing what they do?

    Actually if you're going to go purist and take only what is in the comics, then TPVs are out of the game and visiting a parallel self is too.

    Luther Arkwright, why are the Disruptors doing what they do?

    As metatemporal nomad Jerrik Ornell once famously said (at least in this group of parallels) "Your multiverse may vary!"

    Luther Arkwright, why are the Disruptors doing what they do?

    "And FireFrost-the conjunction of opposites...the female-male principle..the destroyer and creator-sinks into the prehistoric ocean." This quote shows that FireFrost can be used to create as well as destroy. After the destruction of the Bringer Arkwright splits it in two and the parts drift off into space. So some enterprising villain could seek to use the creative or destructive half if they could gain them. Maybe there is a scenario in that?
