Is Toran ruled by a baron in MS5000 or not?

I've found something that made me confused. In the old Magnamund Companion Toran was in year 5050 ruled not by a baron as the other Sommlending cities but by the city's guilds. I always thought that the city was left in the hands of the guilds when Sun Eagle became the first Kai Lord and had to give...

Book of the Magnakai question: High Mark of the Marksman

What's High Mark of the Marksman used for? Bows in combat in the game system are used in the combat table so turning a 0 into a 5 would be a reduction of the damage in ordinary combat...

Is it meant to be used for stuff like trick shooting?

Another obvious error:

In book 2: Missing instructions to add the Seal of Hammerdal on the Special Items list in the equipment section.

Knowledge of the Magnakai abilities are preserved by teaching them from Kai Masters to students. Lone Wolf needed the book because there were no one to teach the abilities to him.

Don't see why you need to limit them.

Well, necromancy does not seem like something the Elder Magi would dabble in. So that it was removed feels right to me. Also that Sorcery was changed because it kind of seemed to be equal to one of the other abilities Wizard's Staff perhaps? Why have two abilities that does the same thing? I do not ...

Well concerning Kai Lords and Willpower... Kai Lords have amazing healing skills. Don't really see the -2 Endurance from Psi-Surge as a major hindrance.

Well I always thought that the extra New Order disciplines where horrible (except for Kai-Alchemy and Magi-Magic). And in the later books you more or less had four or five options to do the same thing.

Does this sound about right then? I think you're seeing it the same way as I am now. Everybody gets a turn unless it's denied them by another person's actions. if someone attacks you then you don't get to attack them back on your turn because you've already fought them. However, I've just seen a na...

Also many things are not known as well. I mean take the Sommerswerd, when was it created and where? On the Plane of Light? Or on some of the other planets of Aon? Think we can speculate on these matters how much we want, but we won't get any answers on many of these questions since Magnamund seems t...

Well, in my version of the book, if you had the spear and gave it away you didn't get the opportunity to use Animal Kinship. If you kept it or didn't have it you could use Animal Kinship. Basically you gave away your only defense and was killed for being noble.

Well, I've always had the notion that the people where created and then put into the void and arriving. Like suddenly there are a fleet of ships of Sommlendings created. But it wouldn't be unplausable to have the Sommlendings arriving from another planet in Aon, a world that was conquered by the for...

The Mega-deals explained

I've been seriously considering buying the mega-deals, but I'm not sure if i need to order all three of them or if that would give me a lot of spare copies of the books? Does the Magnamund mega-deal contain book 13 and up or does it contain all the books? Which should I order so that I do not get mu...

When it comes to appearance of various groups of humans it's not really mentioned and sometimes it even feels contradictory. Although Lone Wolf seems to easily recognize what makes a Sommlending a Sommlending. Languages are also another matter that is a bit peculiar. In the gamebooks Lone Wolf have ...

Skills in the d20 system is horrible. I've always favoured systems like BRP that give you increases in skills for actually using skills. Personally I see the system in the Lone Wolf Multiplayer Gamebook as rather ingenious. If a discipline can be correlated to a certain task it gives you a bonus or ...

Well, one idea is to go to the old LWRPG rules for inspiration. And as already said when it comes to Kai characters the rules are already there, complete with Lorecircle bonuses and all.

Lone Wolf books in stores?

Will the books come out in the stores? At the webpage it was said that they would hit the shelves in January 2009...

Has anything happened or is the only possibility to order the Collector's Edition (which would be nice to have) via Mongoose?
