According to MongooseIan35 on the Tower of the Sun boards, it's the long-awaited Port Bax article which will be featured in issues 27 and 28.

It's intended as a malus, just like for Shianti Sorcerors.

In book two he is the only one that can carry the Sommerswerd, and yes the kingdom is under siege. Not to say you couldn't send a few knights along with him though if they were that capable. At first, the mission was covert, but he was surrounded by a whole ship's worth of sailors. From Port Bax on...

Did anyone else notice how much equipment some of those pre made charactes had compared to their starting money? Ah well, I'm sure it all balances out in the end (the average starting Kai Monk can barely afford clothing, a dagger and a staff let alone a sword, bow, leathers and shield). Check out t...

Might I suggest this? That any regional source books should also include an adventure or that each adventure should include about as much regional and locational information as the existing ones. That way you get a sourcebook and an adventure two in one deal and both people are happy (the action ju...

To conclude, I will support KL's idea to write a "fan" supplement on Vassagonia. It would be great! Indeed. He wants to write it along the lines of the Darklands supplement, which introduces a few new classes. I think that's a great way of presenting new classes to players, because they fit along w...

The Mongoose art depicts the magicians of Dessi as being fair skinned, even palid in comparisson to others (see the Dessi lass on the cover of Dawn of Destruction although, to be fair to her, the other foreground figure is supposed to be Vassagonian (or possibly Shadkine but most likely Vassagonian...

It just saved the life of Sol Hawk, the Kai Lord in our game at LWRPGol hosted on Tower of the Sun. He's down to -4 EP instead of -14.

I don't really see your list as power gaming at all. The strongest discipline to take at level 1 is probably Mind Blast, which lets you use Psychic Combat as early as level 2, which is lethal against non armoured opponents at that level (which is pretty much most enemies).

I like it. It's short but adequate for 1rst level heroes, and does a lot trying to involve all the heroic good character classes into an adventure taking place in Sommerlund. It's also a good prequel for Blood Moon Rising.

Would it be possible for someone to compile a list of the Lone Wolf articles in S&P so we'll know if we've missed anything? As far as I know there's been 2 detailing a small village/town outside of Toran (which I don't have) and the Toranese archer (which I do). Are there any others I'm not aware o...

The Kalkoth illustration in Book 3 doesn't have 6 legs. Why does the LWRPH bestiary say that Kalkoth have 6 legs? Possibly because that was in Joe Dever's notes, and Gary Chalk used artistic license when he drew the picture. August Hahn had access to all of JD's notes on Magnamund, and occasionnall...

You have keen peepers stondraeg! :shock: Well, that should solve the problem, though I had personally thought the grand word of power to be too strong to be contained in a magick item.

Re: Sommlending Border Ranger for Your Perusal

I realise that there is a Border Ranger due to appear in S&P some time in the not-too-distant future. Did a version ever appear in S&P? I'm trying to track the stuff I've missed. Nope. The only S&P issues with LW content, besides Issue 1 which was just a preview of the RPG, are issues 21 (Town of T...

I went to check the newsletters, and it seems the original LW Fantasy Battles game was supposed to be released in April of 1994. Gary Chalk (and one of the other Lone Wolf artists( published a tabletop battle game called Fantasy Warlords sometime in the mid to late 90's. It had it's own setting but...

Dawn of Destruction - Problems

There are a few missing paragraph ends near the end of certain pages. Also, I think the most obvious rules mistake that springs to mind is that a level 17 Brother of the Crystal Star uses a Grand Word of Motion...which isn't a power he can use before level 20. Has anyone else noticed similar problems?
