In March 2019 we presented the Lone Wolf Bundle featuring the Lone Wolf Adventure Game from Cubicle 7 Entertainment based on the famous Lone Wolf gamebook series by Joe Dever. The Lone Wolf series introduced a generation of British teens and tweens to fantasy gaming. Dever’s dozens of gamebooks cast readers as Kai Lord warrior-monks defending the world of Magnamund against the Darklords of Helgedad. The book series spawned a couple of licensed roleplaying games, most recently Cubicle 7’s LWAG, funded in an August 2014 Kickstarter campaign.
Taking the Lone Wolf gamebooks as the inspiration for its system, The Lone Wolf Adventure Game is a great introduction to tabletop RPGs. The Initiate-level game keeps the mechanics to a minimum. Task resolution uses a 1d10 roll. A normal success requires 6 or higher; difficult tests require higher numbers. In combat, you roll your Combat Skill minus your opponent’s. Experienced players can ramp up the complexity with the Master-level game, which provides a variety of options: a more complex combat system, new character skills and traits, and Kai’s favor, a currency for helping you succeed at tasks.
This offer presented almost the entire Lone Wolf Adventure Game line for an unbeatable bargain price. There were four titles in our Starter Collection (retail value $69) as DRM-free .PDF ebooks, including the complete full-color Lone Wolf Adventure Game core rulebook (previously offered in our December 2016 Family-Friendly RPGs 2), the Heroes of Magnamund Expanded Character Handbook, the full-color bestiary Magnamund Menagerie, and the Narrator’s Screen .PDF with useful charts and references.
Those who paid more than the threshold (average) price also got our entire Bonus Collection with four more titles worth an additional $75, including The Realm of Sommerlund setting book, Bestiary of the Beyond (more monsters), the full-length campaign Terror of the Darklords, and the three-scenario collection Adventures of the Kai.
Ten percent of each payment (after gateway fees) went to this offer’s designated charity, Doctors Without Borders.
