Re: Goodbye Mongoose!

I have hinted at this in some of my last posts, but just to echo the comments on here really. There has been some bad, but there has also been some good and at the end of it all we have 17 hardback LW books to read, plus the impetus for new maps, multiplayer books and novels to name a few. And for m...

Re: Question for Matt: Mega Deal Refund Confirmation

That's a nice thing to say Mark. I totally agree, the forums have been really good to read through over these years and talk to fans. We still have facebook and Project Aon and I will see you there! Still as Writing Wolf :D Bye to all on here though and, despite the problems we have had, thank you t...

Re: Mongoose deserves to be a commercial failure

This subject is a bit harsh! We don't know the reasons for the cancellation of the line - I suspect we never will. Yes I'm not happy about it, but we should see some refunds so that's better than nothing (such as Jessops, HMV, Woolworths, Blockbuster to name a few) AND the reprints are still being d...

Re: So ... Book 18?

Just gone back onto it (been awhile) - I didn't know they had made the books ready for an e-book. Now that is something I am interested in! :D

Re: So ... Book 18?

Wow :shock: Ok I have asked about those of us who pre-ordered Book 18 as that's still potentially money down the drain (nothing like the Mega Deals sadly). Really really sad this has happened. Unfortunately, it looks like Clegane's worst fears were true. I don't think we will ever find out exactly w...

Hi August

Pretty good graphic! That would look good as a bookmark in Book 18 (hint hint Mongoose!) :D

Re: So ... Book 18?

Hi Clegane I totally agree with you on the fact that if you paid up-front you should receive said services, and as far as I am aware Mongoose will indeed provide them, just not at the speed they had hoped. That was the point of my post - timing. But yes, they MUST provide them. It is irritating havi...

Re: So ... Book 18?

Well to be fair, this is a 2nd (or is it 3rd?) recession in the UK - whilst some areas of RPG etc. are doing well, others are not. I would imagine the cost of printing etc. has gone up and up, so we can't blame Mongoose for that. It does look like it will be 1, ideally 2, per year. Not great but bet...

Re: So ... Book 18?

It's true, I was quite shocked at how long ago it was when the first book came out. At the time I was really annoyed I could not afford the MegaDeal. Whilst it is still a lot cheaper than buying each individually (as I am doing) 5 years is a hell of a long time to wait. As you say Clegane, resignati...

Best Villain from each Series

So I was wondering, who do you think is the best villain from each of the LW series? My votes are below: Kai Series (books 1 to 5) Vonotar the Traitor - for me, one of the ultimate villains Magnakai Series (books 6 to 12) Tricky - I'd have to go for Zahda, especially when using the Legends series as...

Re: So ... Book 18?

It is a long time to have pre-ordered a book. I hadn't realised it was 5 months!! Was this the book that was delayed by a change in the illustrator, or was that another one?

Re: Lone Wolf 1-4

Resurrecting an old thread, but the question is still relevant.

Matt - if I were to re-order books 1 to 4, would they come with the flat spines (so the original releases) or a round spine like the other books? Also, have they been amended with the relevant corrections?

Re: So ... Book 18?

Just checked the release schedule - it says "printing" and a January Street Date. Ok so maybe they won't make January, but early February is a possibility.

Book 19 could be awhile off - though I would hope it is ready for this year!

I was wondering when someone would snap yet and ask the update question! lol Hard to believe I first asked this back in June ... still, maybe the snow will have gone for when the book arrives :D I like your idea T.Y.A. - just needs to be Sommerswerd shaped and we have some official LW merchandise! :...

Re: So ... Book 18?

Thanks for the update Matt - much better than wild speculation!

Looking forward to the rest of the books - hope they aren't too long in coming, but the main thing is that they come at all.

Let's hope the world recession, and notably the UK one, end pretty soon for all our sakes! :D

Re: So ... Book 18?

Thanks T.Y.A. - I had a feeling money, or a lack thereof, was the issue. I expect Mongoose have dug themselves a hole with the Megadeals mainly. What was economically viable way back in 2006/7 just doesn't work now. The preorders have gone up a bit in price to help, but most of the orders come I exp...

Re: So ... Book 18?

Given the recent run of 1 or 2 books a year, I will say 2018 to 2022 for them all to be out. A long time, yes. But then again, they were not printed at all for even longer!

Re: New From Joe: Map Boards & Poster Maps - On Pre-Order!

Wow these look great! :D

Looks like there could be 9 sets - 36 maps, 4 per set. Very nice. That means the world can go on the wall, and the others in a handy "book" format with the detail.

Re: Lone Wolf Mega Deal

Although they do get the cost of the books for much less than they cost now, so there is still a benefit. And the trilogies may still be completed at some point.

Re: Lone Wolf Product Announcement!

That's even better news August! I imagine those will look great if the quality is anything like the larger maps, and it sounds like they will.

Looking forward to your other news too now :D
