 If you're new to the Kickstarter skip down to the Introduction section to find out what The Lone Wolf Adventure Game is all about.

Progress summary

All supplements (which can be purchased as Add Ons by any backer, or bundled at the Kai Savant and Kai Master levels) are unlocked as hardcovers.  "Sommerlund", "Heroes of Magnamund" and the "Magnamund Bestiary" will also be in colour.    At £20/£24 each these are a bargain for Kickstarter backers.

All backers at a reward level get the Kickstarter-Exclusive PDF pack, which details Rookhaven, a town in Sommerlund. Through stretch goals we have added 2 additional adventures to the pack, (bringing the total to 3) and have offered it as a 96 page hardcover volume as an Add On, available to all backers.  The Kickstarter-Exclusive PDF pack and the hardcover version of it will not be available after the Kickstarter.

Joe Dever’s Lone Wolf gamebooks introduced a generation to fantasy gaming – now, in Lone Wolf’s 30th Anniversary year, the legend continues with the Lone Wolf Adventure Game. Epic quests, thrilling combat, and a world of dangerous adventure lie ahead!

Our goal is to produce a game accessible to new and younger gamers – the perfect first roleplaying game – that develops and grows as the players progress. The advanced options in the boxed set, and the richly detailed supplements, will deliver a depth of gameplay that we're sure will satisfy more experienced gamers.

You’ll explore the wonderous world of Magnamund, a setting that has been brought to life over more than 30 years of development. From fertile Sommerlund to the arid deserts of Vassagonia, the foetid depths of the Danarg swamp to the despoiled wasteland of the Darklands, an evocative and fully realised world of classic fantasy adventure awaits you.

This Kickstarter will enable us to start off our Lone Wolf Adventure Game line with a bang, create the best core set possible, and help us to bring the sheer excitement of Lone Wolf to a whole new generation of gamers.

But it is also about us connecting with Lone Wolf fans and building a community that the Lone Wolf Adventure Game can grow with. We want to gather everyone together to help us make the Lone Wolf roleplaying game we've always wanted. Backers will be invited to playtest the game, and give feedback not only on the Adventure Game boxed set but also on the more advanced rules currently in development.

The product at the heart of the Kickstarter is the Lone Wolf Adventure Game – a gorgeous boxed set full of beautiful full-colour books and play materials. This set contains everything you need to play the game.

Also available, through higher pledge levels or as add-ons, are a range of expansions that provide additional depth to the game. They are also full of insights and details about Magnamund that will fascinate and delight all Lone Wolf fans. For more details on these, see below.

In the Lone Wolf Adventure Game, you adopt the role of Kai Lords – specially gifted men and women who form an order of warrior-scholar-monks capable of extraordinary feats of body and mind.

As Kai Lords, you are pledged to keep your homeland of Sommerlund secure from its enemies, most especially the Darklords of Helgedad. Your adventures will be many and varied. In your first week you could be dispatched by the King on a secret mission to retrieve a stolen map. The following week could see you in the borderlands, tracking down a traitorous outlaw and his shadowy band of thieves.

We are developing the Adventure Game to be playable straight out of the box by young people new to tabletop gaming. The players will learn the basic rules through a game they all take part in, getting everyone into the action within minutes of opening the box.

As you grow in experience, additional features can be added in to give the game additional depth. There are a bunch of these included the boxed set, and we will develop the game further in expansions. Experienced gamers can dive right in with all the options included, and new gamers can tailor the learning curve to their group.

You get everything you need to play the game in the Beginner’s Box – it’s a complete game.

But there’s so much to do and see in Magnamund, so we are also developing an extensive range of expansions that will extend your games and provide you with the remarkable details about this fantastic world.

There are 3 types of expansions:

Setting expansions present you with exciting new areas of Magnamund to explore. Full of people, places and game ideas, Setting expansions bring new areas of your world to life!

Adventure expansions give you fully prepared adventures to play with your friends. Designed by Cubicle 7’s award-winning team, these thrilling quests will provide you with hours of excitement and high adventure!

Game expansions give you more options for your characters and the things that you can do in the game. More player character choices, more powers and more options to take your game to the next level!

There will also be available a fabulous series of highly-detailed Maps. These maps are beautiful objects in their own right, yet they are also designed for practical use in your games. Click the image to learn more:

We have big plans for this game, so there’s a lot to come. As part of this Kickstarter, you can collect the following expansions:

Terror of the Darklords – The first major Adventure expansion, this epic quest takes the players from their quiet Kai monastery on a trail of conspiracies that spread across Sommerlund!

Heroes of Magnamund – This Game expansion introduces many new characters you can play, such as a Magician of the Brotherhood of the Crystal Star, or a Dwarven Gunner of Bor.

Sommerlund – Setting expansion, containing a wealth of detail about the homeland of the Kai. Explore its proud cities and confound its devious villains; there are a lot of great adventure ideas in this book.

Magnamund Bestiary – This Game expansion is an encyclopedia of the hundreds of creature types that exist in Magnamund. It is a fantastic resource that will enable you to populate your games with a huge variety of adversaries to challenge the players.

Some content for these expansions was first published in the Lone Wolf Multiplayer Gamebooks (2010-11), but the titles have since been extensively reviewed, revised, and expanded upon with new material from Joe Dever, the Scriptarium team, and the Cubicle 7 team.

Joe’s gamebooks have sold over 11.5 million copies worldwide. They have introduced a whole generation of people to fantasy gaming – something we want to do once more with the Lone Wolf Adventure Game!

Magnamund is a fully realised, rich and deeply evocative world with myriad fascinating lands and territories to explore. The opportunity for adventure here is virtually limitless. Joe Dever’s stories are classic tales set in a war between Good and Evil, but with many shades of grey in between the opposing forces. The themes are powerful and the writing has a slightly darker, distinctively British edge to it.

The Lone Wolf Adventure Game is set approximately 50 years before the events of the first Lone Wolf gamebook.

Choose the pledge level that gives you the rewards that you want. The higher pledge levels are a great deal, and they only get better as stretch goals enhance the books, adding colour images and hardcovers!

                                                                                                

You can personalise your rewards with the following add-ons. Simply add the cost of the items you want to your pledge. We'll collect the information on the items you have selected after the end of the Kickstarter. 

The expansion books will be softcovers with black & white interior art until we pass the stretch goals that unlock full colour art and hardcovers.

Risks and challenges

We have experience of producing boxed games and we have the skills and knowledge needed to deliver this product. If we mess anything up, we'll get it redone.

Delays are always a possibility, and one that Cubicle 7 has encountered before. We've been operating for over 7 years and have encountered many delay-causing circumstances (as our oldest friends will testify). Experience has since taught us how to identify and avoid most of them. We'll manage any delays by communicating with backers about potential problems as soon as they become apparent.

We are well progressed with the writing. We shall be tailoring the products to the success of the kickstarter, so there is the possibility that extra material (that strong support unlocks) could be added. However, we are mindful that extra material often takes extra time to produce, and we do not want to delay publication unnecessarily.

Our mission goal, and our commitment, is producing an excellent game and providing you with a range of top-quality products to support it.
