Subtitle: Pursuit of the White Wolf
Adventure module for Stormbringer RPG.
Black Sword is a scenario book for use with the Stormbringer game. The scenarios depict a woman's quest for revenge against Elric himself. Elric was hired by three merchants of Bakshaan (rivals of the woman's father, a man named Haver Nikron) to storm the Nikron keep and kill her father. That battle is chronicled in the Moorcock story entitled "Stealer of Souls."
Fredya Nikron, the dead merchant's daughter gathers together a group of adventurers and friends to embark on her mission of vengeance. The adventures in this book tell the tale of Fredya's quest for vengeance against Elric and of Fredya's final battle with the White Wolf. Her success or failure is determined by the players.
Fredya's quest takes her across the land of Ilmoria to observe the breadth of destruction which always follows in Elric's wake. Elric's adventures during this period are chronocled in the book "The Bane of the Black Sword."
The gamemaster is provided with extensive information on the governments, cultures, and environments of the various lands which Fredya must visit while following Elriuc's trail, including Nadsokor, Org and Karlaak of the Jade Towers. Non-player character descriptions aid the gamemaster in storytelling.
The companion to this volume, called Stealer of Souls tells of Fredya's revenge against the conspiracy of merchants who slew her father, and of their plots against Fredya herself.
