Re: Book 17 The Deathlord of Ixia - What's Changed?

Taking a few questions directly to Joe would be really grand :) Kind of like the old lonewolf club magazines! My 'burning' questions are: - the rerolling point (discussed ad-nauseum above); - is healing / curing / laumspur intended to cure any type of damage, or only 'physical' damage (and if only p...

Re: Book 17 The Deathlord of Ixia - What's Changed?

Do you reckon we could get a signed affidavit from Joe on this point? :lol: Its funny but given how many hours I spend dying in the lair of Ixia I would actually pay money for that. Maybe we could do a kickstarter campaign to reprint book 13 with an amended introduction ! :mrgreen:

Re: Book 17 The Deathlord of Ixia - What's Changed?

Very interesting! Did this come directly from Joe himself? If so, how would one recalculate CS and EP? (I'm guessing you would have to reroll both). Say I have a base CS of 19, which has increased to 24 from circle bonuses. I then roll a 0 for my "training" so I now have 25 CS, or do my circles get ...

Re: Book 17 The Deathlord of Ixia - What's Changed?

Actually - on reflection one reservation I have is whether on a 'strict' approach it is realistically possible to complete bk17 without the kagonite chainmail. The fights are hard enough but without the bonus +3 to cs and the adgana you also get it could be downright crazy hard. For example, Ixitagi...

Re: Book 17 The Deathlord of Ixia - What's Changed?

In my experience of playing the GM books very strictly (albeit with a guaranteed starting roll of 9 for CS), books 13-16 are quite reasonable in terms of difficulty (if you take into account the +20 ep from advanced curing). Without kagonite chainmail book 14 is reasonably hard (although you should ...

Re: Book 30: Dead in the Deep?

An underwater adventure fighting undead - I love it! Just make sure to bring Ulnarius (even if is still damaged after book 27!) As to progress, I appreciate Mongoose for all their efforts and expect they are going as fast as they can. Joe has obviously had health concerns and this has to come before...

Re: Lone Wolf 17... Is In!

Presumably its a typo because they are destroyed in the last book. On the other hand, it would be cheesy but technically you could put them in safe storage to avoid losing them in book 16. (Although I recall Helshezag does permanent EP drain now which would be nasty). Its not as bad as the typo in t...

Re: Will Mongoose be fixing Book 17 ?

Thank you everyone for the clarification. His undead status explains the reasoning for having such a high CS score. I **would** love to know whether you are expected to use the sommerswerd in the undead city, or whether there is a clear point at which you can use it all the time (as that also affect...

Re: Will Mongoose be fixing Book 17 ?

Thanks for your input Vincent, are you writing the mini-adventure? Across the board CS reductions would help, OR at least some indication that lone wolf can use the sommerswerd in certain situations. I flicked through the book the other day and it seemed that regular enemies had between 48 and 52 CS...

Re: Will Mongoose be fixing Book 17 ?

Regarding whether Ixitaaga is undead, the project aon errata notes seem to think so - taken from their site: so: According to Mongoose Publishing's Lone Wolf, The Roleplaying Game ((c) 2004): "As trapped by the wave of unlife as his people, Ixiataaga has researched the lore of death and magic for te...

Re: Lone Wolf 16 & Darklands - Both in Stock!

Wow! GREAT work mongoose (and Dever). That means that in most cases a veteran character should always survive that paragraph (assuming optimal discipline choices). No more 40% instant death. And the riddle change is great as well. Now just fingers crossed the difficulty is REALLY sorted in book 17 :...

Re: Lone Wolf 16 & Darklands - Both in Stock!

Presumably the riddle has the missing bit of information so it works now? :) WHo is the mini game hero - Alyss? Is paragraph 143 still the same? (the one that kills you instantly 30 - 40% of the time) ...and lastly can you take all 10 special items from pre-book 13 with you? (the old editions only h...

It could be stretching it to suggest that all of Ixiataagia's minions were also created by a magical object, but I like the idea of having an adventure where you can realistically go around smashing enemies with something other than the Swerd. The point about not using the Sommerswerd is something I...

Re: the jewelled mace - it is strange it can be carried to the GM series but seems to have no use. My thought was that in book 17 since you can't use the sommerswerd they could put a rune of power or something on the mace and give it a bonus to CS or something. That would make up for the horrendous ...

Damn that crystal star pendant is a good idea. I wonder if there is any way to introduce that change, maybe put it in the softcover books to make everyone buy that version :) Failing that maybe in books 16+ at some point the pendant could become "enhanced' and gain that ability (same with the jewele...

Yes but this one is nearly worse than all the other GM instant deaths combined up to now AND there is an excuse for the korlinium scabbard to work.

You can't blame me - I need as much chance as possible to get my characters to the impossible deathtrap that is book 17 :)

Korlinium Scabbard and book 16

Hi all! With Legacy of Vashna (bk 16) now in the wings, I wanted to raise a possible issue that might be worth considering or updating. We are all aware of the Shamath Riddle debate, but there is another equally oppressive part of the book, where lone wolf passes through an inspection and must “roll...

Went well by the way - I rolled a 2, so narrowly made it across the gap and only lose 2 EP. With my kagonite chainmail, victory against the warlord was assured!!

Right where is my book 16 :)
