Re: Comment on the State of the Mongoose

Armageddon 2089 is still near and dear to my heart. I'd love to see it done again. I know it could have legs (big metal ones) if done right.

Here's hoping!

Hell, I'd even be happy to write for it if it gets off the ground.

Re: Comment on the State of the Mongoose

Another year, another lack of mention of the Lone Wolf novels. Sadness. :(

Re: So ... Book 18?

Trust me, if I could give you any insight into the schedule or process, I would gladly do it. Mongoose has novels they haven't had the chance to publish yet and I still don't know why. :)

But whenever I do have some inside information, I will share it.

For the Kai!

Re: An attempt at Advanced Lonewolf RPG

You are getting into the minutae of game creation here. While I'm not trying to discourage you and the work seems nice, you may want to consider keeping this to yourself or posting it where you have better control over your own concepts.

Just a friendly heads up, good sir!

Re: So ... Book 18?

All right, a point of clarification is in order here. Mongoose did not produce these maps. They had nothing to do with the maps aside from being awesome and offering to help make them available for sale. These maps come from Joe Dever himself and a hand-picked group who have no part in writing the b...

Re: How do you handle Crafting?

All excellent points and sound like some fine world-domination and empire building fodder. While all of your points fall completely outside the scope of this game, I do hope you find what you are looking for. It sounds like you have thought it through quite a bit. Might I suggest you try your hand a...

Re: How do you handle Crafting?

Honestly, and this is not meant as criticism, this whole situation really sounds like you are going past crafting straight to industry. If your PCs have the resources and wherewithal to do half of what you are projecting, you have already taken the game far outside the scope of what its rule set is ...

Re: How do you handle Crafting?

Crafting, like profession skills, tend to fall outside the realm of a rule system based around quick resolution and simple framework. There's no place in the Lone Wolf rules for crafting, mostly because such activity is a long process unsuited to simple rolls and pass/fail mechanics. That said, you ...

Re: Bor Mercenary

While this may seem like nit-picking, this is exactly the sort of process we have to go through when designing new classes. Synergies in abilities must be looked at carefully to make sure there are no 'super combos' or broken powers. I like the basic concept and many of the powers; we are just hamme...

Re: Bor Mercenary

However, if this same character also has the 'Strength of Bor' ability, the question becomes relevant again, yes?

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

Having actually seen these map cards, I can tell you these are even more impressive than the images here. They are an absolutely must-have for any fan, hands down. There's no question I'll be collecting each and every one!
