I think that the arrows are too uniform to convey the image of chaos. Maybe change the length and angle of them? I like the snowblower image in the background.

Funny enough I have the Chaos symbol on one shoulder, and the law symbol on my other shoulder. It wouldn't have to be Elric themed, it could be themed from any of the "Eternal Champion" series. The Chaos/Law duality tended through much of the series. I think Corum fought a Chaos Prince...or something...apparently I have to go back and read those books again.

However, if you're going to use the chaos star you need an Elric themed brew.

I'll toss out some ideas:
Womenslayer Applewine
Kinslayer Holiday Ale
Stormbringer Stout
Actorios Amber
Golden Battle Beer
Ruby Throne Rye
Four/Three Who are One Lambic
Sailor on the Seas of Beer
Elric: Stealer of Sobriety
Elric: Song of the Baltic Stout

Yes, I am an Eternal Champion geek.

If your going to do a Horde brew, you should pay some homage to Warhammer, they sort of put it out there. Maybe a Bretonian Ale, or Marienburg Porter.

I've been seriously considering a series of warhammer-esque brews, just because we're now officially hooked on warhammer online.

I really like that black background format, simple so it allows re-use without being too similar each time.

Very cool, love the time machine.

That's true, it could be any of them. I'm just partial to Elric because the Elric series was the first of the Eternal Champion series that I read.

I'm slowly plodding my way through the Eternal Champion Series, including a rereading of Elric. Half the battle is finding hardcovers for my collection!

P.S. You deserve a 6 pack for being truly dedicated and having the Chaos and Law symbol tattoos.

Man, I'm out of it. I thought that's what this was all about from the start.
