Re: Lone Wolf Refund

Hey there, Drop me a line at msprange@mongoosepublishing.com, and we'll sort you out. Matt, I sent you an email on the 27th March asking for a refund and have yet to receive any sort of response or even aknowledgement of my request. I'll send it again in case it got lost in the system somewhere but...

Re: Goodbye Mongoose!

Some of you have uncompleted Megadeal subscriptions. Very incomplete. Some of us signed up early enough to pay for the full series and only just just checked the website tonight to see if there was any news on what was taking the next book so long yet. :shock: In addition, Mongoose Publishing is ma...

Re: [FRENCH BOOKS] New Lone Wolf RPG and companion

I've asked it before and I'll ask again. How come the French gamers get the lovely Gary Chalk artwork and us poor English players get stuck with the new cartoony artwork Mongoose want to use? Oh well :roll: .

As far as I'm aware Greywood Publishing is run by Jamie Wallis (who did the Fighting Fantasy d20 adventures for Myriador). I like the idea of him doing a Lone Wolf board game with Gary Chalk's artwork. I just hope he's got Joe Dever's permission :).

How about Shieldmaster: The warrior knows how to use a shield to ward off attacks targetting his small frame. He gains twice the usual bonus associated with a shield when using one.

I agree that the combat table is very.... attacker friendly. But I think combined a roll at +8 and one a -8 would balance out. OR perhaps when the enemy rolls their roll they still roll in the +8 column, and damage is still assigned as indicated to the Player Character and Enemy. That would be corr...

A character or enemy does not get to engage others or take another action if they have already fought a combat this combat round. In effect they have acted in this combat round already. This usually means the characters and enemies with low COMBAT SKILL will rarely get a chance to choose who they w...

I think the common sense option is that everyone gets a turn unless they've already been engaged because everyone gets to fight once. If a monster attacks you before your turn and badly hurts you then you shouldn't be forced to fight it again so it can beat you up some more. This means that combatan...

Okay... NOW it's getting really weird... I've figured out, that this adventure is just an updated version of the old "The Corruption of Ikaya" adventure from Signs & Portents Roleplayer - 39 & 40... At least you can find the missing maps there! You mean the title didn't give it away? :lol: Actualy ...

Red Box Games do a lovely selection of woodland types with hooded cloaks, hand weapons and bows. They're supposed to be elves but there's no visible elf ears. Many of them would work well as Kai Monks. Here's a few sample pictures. http://www.artemisblacks.com/redbox/images/40%20Edele%20of%20Aelfhei...

Book 14: the caption of illustration 2 is the same sentence repeated twice. I suspect the second sentence was supposed to be something different. :D

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...
