The Lone Wolf Adventure Game is our forthcoming roleplaying game, designed to not only bring Joe Dever’s world of Magnamund to the tabletop, but also to introduce a whole new generation to our wonderful hobby.
The boxed set contains everything you need to get playing right away – literally, from the moment you open the box – from ready-made characters and adventures to tokens and handouts. It also contains three beautifully illustrated books that provide the reader with all the rules, background and information they need to embark upon fantastic adventures of their own. The team are very nearly finished putting the finishing touches to these books, so we thought we’d share them with you today.
These pages are all from just one of the books in the boxed set, the Book of Kai Training, which is the perfect introduction to the Lone Wolf setting. It explains what an adventure game is, how to make your own character, introduces you to the Kai Order and Sommerlund, and teaches you the basic rules.
We really want this box set to be accessible to new players. With that in mind, we’ve got a piece of advice for playing the game, commentary on the rules or a further example of how it all works at the bottom of most pages. These samples look best if you can set your PDF view to show spreads rather than single pages.
Jon Hodgson and Scott Purdy have really knocked it out of the park with the art, and as you can see from this small sample it’s very exciting; all three books in the boxed set are packed with equally beautiful pieces.
We introduced our cast of iconic characters during the game’s playtest and they proved popular with our playtesters. Well, so as to tie the whole product together, they not only appear in all of the examples, but also star in the artwork. We think this gives the books a consistent feel, and really brings our vision of Magnamund to life through our heroes’ eyes.
The Lone Wolf Adventure Game was funded on Kickstarter, but if you missed out we will be making it available to pre-order soon – keep an eye on the website for more information!
About The Lone Wolf Adventure Game
The Lone Wolf Adventure Game was successfully funded on Kickstarter in September 2014.
In The Lone Wolf Adventure Game, you take the role of Kai Lords – men and women belonging to an order of warrior-scholar-monks capable of super-human feats of body and mind.
As defenders of your home country of Sommerlund, your adventures will be many and varied. You could be dispatched on a dangerous secret mission by the King one week, investigating odd rumours from the borderlands the following week, and called on to settle a land dispute between nobles the next. The enemies of Sommerlund and the Kai are many, and the Kai stretched holding the line.
We are developing the game to be playable out-of-the-box by young people new to tabletop gaming. The basic rules are taught in a game that all the players take part in, getting you into the action as soon as you open the box.
As you grow in experience, additional features can be added in to give the game additional depth. There’s a chunk of these in the Beginner’s Box, and we will develop the game further in expansions. Experienced gamers can dive right in with all the options included, and new gamers can tailor the learning curve to their group.
The Lone Wolf Adventure Game will be available to buy in all good gaming stores next year, as well as direct from our own webstore.
