Re: Lone Wolf 17... Is In!

Well, mine showed up today. The postal stamp indicated that it was mailed from Ohio on March 26, so it took nearly two weeks to get here (8 working days).

Case closed as far as I'm concerned.

Re: Lone Wolf 17... Is In!

So, end of March. Any news why some of us are still waiting for a copy of LW 17?

Re: The Lone Wolf Mega-Deals are Back!

Back when the original megadeals were offered, the canadian dollar was a lot weaker than it currently is, the $US was strong and so was the £. I probably ended up paying over $100 more than I would have if I'd gotten it later.

Re: Lone Wolf 17... Is In!

Still waiting for mine here in Canada, and I'm an original Megadeal subscriber as well. I'm not worried though, they always show up sooner or later.

When I was a kid I always surrendered, until I found out all the fun of running around the city!

The book is almost 25 % shorter if you do surrender though.

Canada here also, and I have had book 3 for over a week now (missing section 192).

I ordered the Megadeal at the end of July, received book 1 a couple of weeks later and book 2 sometime in October.

However, on Book 16 you may meet a certain hunter, and it's said in Section 340 : The hunter tells you that he has travelled all the way from Karkaste, in the realm of Lyris, to hunt for Black Corvayl. Funny. But, this is the Stornlands, where borders may change every now and then... This is also m...

WHy havent I seen any in chicago :( To answer your first question, the LW RPG came out around May/June 2004, followed in July/August by The Darklands sourcebook and in November by the Magic of Magnamund class book. Last August (2005), Mongoose also released an adventure for...

Re: Overpowered giaks...

BTW anyone ever thought that a stat of 18 in strenght is a little bit exagerated. I would mostly stick to the 13 which makes giaks strong but not too much. They are a fairly easy encounter in most of the books especially when considering that Lone Wolf was level 5 in "Flight from the dark". I know ...

It's not just LW, if I go by their S&P mag. Most of their lines probably suffer the same problems.

My main problem with fanfic is the sometimes poor level of language. These stories are often written by people who aren't perfectly comfortable writing in English, and while the exercise is good for them, it's a pain to read that for leisure. The texts are often not reread either, so typoes are comm...
