Correct. Borese spend a good deal of the youth and adulthood serving Bor. By the time they are freed up to "adventure", they are older than most starting characters. That said, you can make a PC any age you wish; the chart is just a suggestion! :)

elSpike is entirely correct. Dever's notes also expound a bit about the denizens of Bor. The rest is an extrapolation.

Sable, fine work. This spell is a perfect example of a concept that will be worked into an upcoming supplement called Peripheral Magics, a way for Brotherhood Mages to expand their magical skills and "differentiate" themselves from one another. While I can't post the details here yet, it effectively...

Any class with Knowledge (any) can take it; otherwise only character with direct exposure to the Darklands through residence can do so without paying cross class prices.

Very welcome, elSpike, and thanks! :oops:

I'm just glad that Lone Wolf fans have found something to like in the series. Magic of Magnamund should suit you well; I had a blast writing it.

Things have been intentionally left vague (as it was in the notes I worked from and the books themselves) because honestly, do you REALLY want it all spelled out for you? If I define everything, you have less room to work with in your games. Make your own explanations. Invent your own races. Have fu...

Correct, Vurnos and Xugargha are the same diety. Another point of note; Argazad was built on the recent ruins of a city before it. I just went to the conclusion that it too was called Argazad (as we do on Earth). Thus, there has always been an Argazad on that site; Gnaag just rebuilt it. Now, how di...

Let's just say that, regarding the other four stones (and a fifth, which is only mentioned in passing but that I get to play with (hee, hee)), there's an S&P article coming soonish.

Your questions will be answered then.

I don't like in the stats for the Doomstones how the Doomstone of Darke acts as the One Ring and gives power over all the other Doomstones. If anyhting, as they're made by Agarash, I could see a Doomstone of Naaros doing that. Glad you like the majority of the book, sir, but as for the Doomstone of...

The Maakengorge is such a hotbed of Darklords politicking, its ruler changes too often to define. Thus, GMs get free reign! :)

Yep, just an error. These thing's happen, especially when you are crunching a LOT of numbers. :)

To explain this one, I originally had the Giak with a 12 Strength (+1), but after going back and doing more research it just did not feel right. The bonus was never shifted back, sadly.

The statistics listed for any creature are generally not the "average" for such beasts; they are the ones best used for combat. In the case of the Giaks, the 18 indicates that when Giaks are encountered in combat, they are typically the strong warrior types. You are of course free to change this, bu...

I na sense, yes (though the specific material in question is actually slaked for another book). For now, assume that the example is a very special case and that other Helghast do not have this immunity.

You'll see it soon enough.

Use the spell's description, not the example. The example was written before playtesting, when it was noted that the attack rolls were enough complication for the spell.

It has to do with the political migration happening during the century leading up to Book 1 of the Lone Wolf series. The Brotherhood, long active in Sommerlund court intrigue, has been steadily trying to limit its connections to the ruling line in an effort to both focus their efforts on the arcane ...

And herein lies the problem. Mr. Dever's names for monsters change a little (as do their appearances) during the course of the books and in his background material. When you spot a "mistake" in the OGL, it is likely a case of me having to choose one piece of information over the other based on what ...
