Lone Wolf S&P articles

Postby sunwolf » Sun Aug 01, 2004 8:52 pm

Hey, is there any possibility if you guys who have a subscription could at least notify us online with a post that there's gonna be a Signs and Portents article on Lone Wolf and generally what the topic is? I'd buy the magazine for the Lone Wolf stuff..but i'd like to know which issues the Lone Wolf stuff is in so i don't have to get a complete subscription.

I felt the same way about Judge Dredd initially. The magazine content does grow on you after a while though.

What I used to do is just check the website regularly for news of the next issue. They always list the content for current months issue and the next months issue. Also, if you are interested in any of the back issues, the site also lists details of what is in those.

I hope that helps.

That is a great answer as well. Being new to all this, will there be special issues of Signs and Portents dedicated to Lone Wolf or something like that? Or will it just be articles here and there?

Completely off-topic, but on first seeing your avatar Arabin, it reminds me of Boba Fett after a nasty encounter with a tin of red paint!

Raethryn - I think it'll be a single article in an issue, and possibly some cover art... so far Mongoose has not themed an entire issue of the magazine for a single game. If they did, all the subscribers that are fans of their other games would be very unhappy.

North Star - Hmm, I can kind of see that. The red is a little bright... but I hope you do recognize that the image is of Judge Dredd...

At the rate Mongoose are expanding (Go Mongoose!), it can't be long (IMHO) before S&P either has to get bigger, be watered down on content for any given game due to the number of games it has to cover, or Mongoose is gonna have to release more (specialist) mags.
I already see posts from people commenting when their favourite game doesn't get coverage in a particular issue.

I think my vote would be to make the mag bigger, as I like being able to read articles on games I don't have... it gives me a reason to want to buy more games :)

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 of?

I've posted this message in response to another of your posts, but I'll C&P it right here:

The only S&P issues with LW content, besides Issue 1 which was just a preview of the RPG, are issues 21 (Town of Tanoren), 22 (Vagabond NPC class and introductory adventure in Tanoren) and 23 (Toranese Archer class).

Also, the town of Tanoren is closer to Holmgard than Toran, but that's just a detail.
