Mighty Elric – Mightier Sword…
Elric of Melniboné, last of the emperors of a once mighty land, self-exiled bearer of the sword of deathpower called Stormbringer, found a ship waiting for him on a mist-wreathed alien seashore.
When he boarded the mysterious vessel, he learned from its shadowy captain that he was to undertake a strange quest, side by side with other heroes from other times. For this ship sailed no earthly waters. These warriors and champions fought sorcerers and demons in a journey spanning seas that seemed to connect not continents and coastlines but other eras and different worlds. For they were, all of them, sailors on the seas of fate...
