Lone Wolf (March 2019) revived

Lone Wolf (March 2019) revived

Wednesday 7 July 2021
In July 2021 we resurrected (at short notice) the March 2019 Lone Wolf Bundle featuring The Lone Wolf Adventure Game based on the famous Lone Wolf gamebook series by Joe Dever. In early July Lone Wolf Adventure Game publisher Cubicle 7 Entertainment announced that, due to unexpected developments, it would cease publishing the Lone Wolf line. Cubicle 7 kindly granted us one last chance to present this bargain-priced offer.

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 LWAG, funded in an August 2014 Kickstarter campaign. Taking the 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 revived March 2019 offer once again presented — for the final time — almost the entire Lone Wolf Adventure Game line as DRM-free .PDF ebooks for an unbeatable bargain price. There were four titles in this revived offer’s Starter Collection (retail value $69), including the complete Lone Wolf Adventure Game core rulebook, the Heroes of Magnamund Expanded Character Handbook, the Magnamund Menagerie monster manual, and the Narrator’s Screen.

Those who paid more than the threshold (average) price also got this revival’s entire Bonus Collection with four more titles worth an additional $75, including The Realm of Sommerlund setting book, Bestiary of the Beyond, the full-length campaign Terror of the Darklords and the three-scenario collection Adventures of the Kai.

Ten percent of each purchase of this Lone Wolf offer (after gateway fees) went to the charity chosen by Cubicle 7 Entertainment owner Dominic McDowall, CMRF Crumlin children’s hospital in Dublin, Ireland. CMRF (Children’s Medical Research Foundation) Crumlin is a pediatric research hospital in Dublin, Ireland. Each year at least 120,000 children attend Crumlin for critical care and support.
