You may have already heard about the new Lone Wolf computer game coming out in early 2008 (we are told). We have seen some of the concepts going around for this project and, well, they are awesome!
Not sure we can be held responsible for this, and the computer games industry is fraught with issues.
Next year will see the release of two new trilogies set in Magnamund, and more will be following. You will be able to find these in most good bookstores, starting Summer 2007.
We have tried very hard to get Lone Wolf into mainstream stores, both novels and gamebooks, but no one is biting at the moment. We continue to try and, if we can achieve that, complete trilogies become possible. Simply put, mail orders alone will not pay what these authors deserve.
Mr Dever is also working on books 29-32, completing the saga that was started many, many years ago (Lone Wolf was actually my introduction to RPGs!). You can expect to see these late 2007/early 2008.
This is still true.
anyone who orders the complete set from us (over whatever time period) will also be sent their own replica of the Sommerswerd,
Now, this one we really did try hard (I mean, how cool would it be?), and ended up talking to one of the top weaponsmiths in the country. The problem is with the blade and, specifically, its colour. We could get a bunch of plastic ones done but to do it properly... technically difficult and very expensive.
We will also be producing a new set of gamebooks, centred around another famous character in Magnamund.
This is also still true.
I get the feeling they promised us the moon without truly understanding what they were getting into. With the results we all know.
Another way of looking at it is a shrinking market, and economy down the toilet. There are also some other factors that I am afraid I cannot speak about at this time. However, Lone Wolf is a series we are very passionate about and, by hook or by crook, we will address as much of this as we can.
