Maybe enemy do get a turn if they are not engaged when their combat turn comes up...though I would still assume the ratio is comparing player characters to enemy not vice versa. That's what I'm thinking. So if the iniative order is as follows: True Blade Giak 1 Swift Fox Moon Owl Giak 2 Wild Foal G...

until everyone is engaged in combat After every character has fought a combat at least once, a new round of combat begins. If a character is no longer engaged (because he has defeated the enemy he was fi ghting), he may move to attack another. So everyone gets a go untill everyone's engaged in comb...

NO, ENEMIES DO NOT GET A TURN IN LONE WOLF. I know, they really needed to clarify this, but enemies don't get to attack. The closest thing to an attack they get to do is pick a target under certain circumstances (which is really just forcing the player to attack them ). Whilst I'm okay with that it...

A dwarf class. Failing that I'd have to agree with Eternal Knight. The Brotherhood of the Crystal Star are bound to be represented and the Ice Barbarians of Kalte are just too cool (:p) for me to not want to play one.

Ah Lightmage, what are those hideous things on the right? At least you've got a good copy of Jungle of Horrors :). Unfortunately it would seem that you've been afflicted with a bad case of the american cover illustrations which simply don't live up to the quality of the UK editions :).

Re: questions about battles

2) If my character has Weaponskill (+2 bonus) or Mindblast (+2 bonus), does he get another +2 bonus, because of the Gangin Up rule, as in the above example? Reading the rule for one bonus on page 43, I understand, that he can't get a second bonus. Hello there. The "only one bonus" applies to out of...

It's still effectively the same. What you need to bear in mind is that the combat ratio is always worked out from the point of view of the player. If a Kai Lord with CS 18 is attacking a Giak with CS 14 (a very deadly giak) then the combat ratio is +4. If the same giak is attacking the same kai lord...

Naturally, I'm wondering what counts as a "critical" error. In the original printing of book 3 section 192 was missing completely (because someone had accidentaly put a picture on top of it). I'm fairly sure that was a critical error and it was spotted, reported and replaced rather quickly for us a...

Page 43 Luck Tests If you cannot decide wether a bonus should be added, or what the Difficulty of a Test should be, simply use a Luck Test, as described on page 43. Wether or not a player succeds in his mission or not can sometimes rest on a simple stroke of fate! That's it. That's all it says abou...

Really? The first time I played it I had the right items to autokill him without a fight (but then, I didn't have a copy of book 2 at the time).

For the grammatical errors in Glory and Greed, I am not able to detect them :lol: .

However there were also a lot of little oc...

They've corrected the spelling on the spine now? I still haven't got a replacement (haven't asked for one yet as I wasn't aware they'd been fixed and was eagerly awaiting the news either way).

As I recently popsted elsewhere for someone else. Eyes can be a pain. Often at small scales the simplest way to paint the eyes is not to paint them. Just leave them the same colour as the darkest tone on the skin. The next simplest way to paint eyes at a small scale is a line and a dot.A dot in the ...

Got mine too. Not read it yet but like the way the Bonus adventure mentions you can wear Padded Leather but not Chainmail with a Bronin Vest, clears that up a little.

What is this El Sombra of which you post?

Well my copy of Lone Wolf book 12 arrived through the post a few days ago. Oddly enough, it was accompanied by some completely unrelated Mongoose book called Pax Britaniia, El Sombra that looks like it's some kind of second world war science fiction book. Should I have recieved book 13 instead or is...

Lord of the Rings yes, in runequest no. I agree. While I'd love to see another RPG set in Middle-earth, I'm not sure that RQ is the right fit for that particular setting. The whole "everyone knows magic" bit makes Runequest completely unsuitable for Middle Earth. Unless Mongoose actualy realised ho...
