A dungeon synth love letter to Michael Moorcock's ELRIC series... Sword and Sorcery at it's best, the Eternal Champion series are considered a cult classic. Out of Season and Phantom Lure are proud to present the long-awaited reissue of this musical RPG tabletop classic, 8-bit dungeon synth relic. Includes all three ELRIC releases on one vinyl LP.

These recordings hark back to 2016-2017, when "dungeon synth" was just a few lone crawlers in a tavern or inn. Yes, for the O.G.'s in the scene, these Elric recordings are considered "classic" and featured in Bandcamp's pivotal article "A Guide Through the Darkened Passages of Dungeon Synth" By Robert Newsome on March 30, 2017:

"It’s safe to say that fantasy literature and role-playing games (the tabletop and the video variety) loom large in the world of Dungeon Synth, and Elric expertly combines both of them. Inspired by the chiptune soundtracks of games like Chrono Trigger and Secret of Mana as well as (obviously) the fantasy novels of Michael Moorcock, Elric’s music is the perfect soundtrack to crawling through (16-bit) alcoves, searching for abandoned potions and treasure while trying to avoid the hungry ghouls hidden in the shadows.”

But wait, there's more!

The Deluxe Edition comes with an exclusive bonus 10" by HAWKMOON - only available in the special deluxe edition. This includes both HAWKMOON EPs "Dorian from Koln" and "The Runestaff" by the same artist under another "Eternal Champion" guise. These HAWKMOON recordings were never officially released but served as "hidden" bonus items when ordering the original, self-released Elric cassettes. Out of Season and Phantom Lure have now made these public as a special bonus 10" for the deluxe edition of this collection, hand-numbered out of just 100 copies.
