Well here we are, the final few hours of our Kickstarter campaign for The Lone Wolf Adventure Game! There are just 2 hours left until the end of the Kickstarter and it’s been another fantastic 24 hours. Thank you to all of our backers - but if you've not backed it yet, there's still time!

We've just shot through the $100,000 mark and unlocked another stretch goal - a full-colour Magnamund Bestiary - and we've just announced a few new ones.

How to Include Shipping and Add Ons in your Pledge

How to add your postage:

  • Click the Manage Your Pledge button on the right-hand side.
  • Change the pledge amount, adding on the postage cost in pounds (£6 for UK/US, £15 for Europe, £25 for rest of the world).
  • You can include Add Ons in your pledge too in the same way – simply increase the pledge amount by the cost of the Add On!

Once the campaign is over, we will be using BackerKit to handle all of your pledges – don’t worry about using BackerKit, it’s not complicated and you’ll get an email from them after the campaign (and we’ll be on hand to help you out). This does mean that you can purchase Add Ons after the campaign has finished, as well as manage your shipping. However, we urge you to add as much in as you can before the campaign ends as the total will help towards unlocking those Stretch Goals!

There are just 26 hours left for our Kickstarter campaign for The Lone Wolf Adventure Game – which means, if you’ve not pledged yet, you’d better do so quickly!

We’ve had a smashing weekend of pledges, clearing both the £45,000 and £50,000 stretch goals and unlocking a third Kickstarter-exclusive adventure and a hardcover Magnamund Bestiary. The totaliser currently stands at £53,000, which means we’re getting close to making the epic Terror of the Darklords campaign hardcover too.

As the campaign has been progressing, our art team – headed by Cubicle 7 art director Jon Hodgson – have been busy exploring concepts for our vision of Magnamund, as he explains:

How will The Lone Wolf Adventure Game look? What will our Kai and Giaks look like? How will it relate to the Magnamunds of the past?

The truthful answer is that we're only just beginning that journey. As art director I will be cutting my cloth according to our budget, and this is one of the reasons we're doing this Kickstarter. As well as building a community around the new game and gathering your ideas as to where the game should go, we're also finding out how many people want a new Lone Wolf game.

If we are lucky enough to get lots of full-colour books, then our art direction approach will be different than if we just do the core set in colour. I want to make sure we're getting the most visual bang for your hard-earned bucks!

However that doesn't mean the Cubicle 7 art department is sitting on our hands until the timer runs out!

Currently I'm digging into the work of NC Wyeth and Howard Pyle, as well as refreshing my memory for a certain vibe by watching some of the classic 1980s TV show, Robin of Sherwood. Looking at the work of NC Wyeth has proved highly inspirational – his handling of colour and light seems a really good “feel” fit to the maps by Francesco Mattioli.  You can see some of that influence below.

We've also begun initial concept work on monsters for the Magnamund Bestiary, as well as putting together the look of our Kai initiates for the boxed set.

This involves going back to the text, looking through all Joe Dever's many files that document the various incarnations of Magnamund, and of course speaking to Joe himself to ensure we're as close as possible to his vision of Lone Wolf.

We're really excited by the possibilities to present views of Magnamund and it's denizens that you haven't seen before, and bring our production values and visual ethos to Lone Wolf.

Here is a selection of our initial visualization work – this is all first draft stuff, and it's all a work in progress. Some parts of what you see here will make it into the final books, but inevitably some will not.”

49d2e79c8a59ed18cd8b8ad3e0faa337_large

"We're also starting work on the various covers we'll need for the boxed set in addition to the box art itself. I want there to be unique covers for each book and the introductory pamphlet, and I've combined them into a narrative. The Gamemaster’s Screen will slot into this too."

Make sure you check out the campaign to get your hands on these exciting add ons, not to mention the fantastic Lone Wolf Adventure Game itself!

Finally, RPG.net are hosting a chat with Dom and Jon tonight from 830pm GMT - so if you've got any burning questions you want to find out the answers to make sure you check it out!

There are just 4 days left for our Kickstarter campaign for The Lone Wolf Adventure Game – which means, if you’ve not pledged yet, you’ve not got long left to get involved!

After a great night of pledges, we’ve cleared the £44,000 mark and are closing in on the next stretch goal at £45,000 – adding a third adventure to the Kickstarter-exclusive PDF pack.

One of the ways in which you help us hit our next stretch goal is by including an add on or two in your pledge. There are loads of different add ons to choose from, from supplements such as Sommerlund or The Magnamund Bestiary, to the Maps of Magnamund sets, the Gamemaster’s Screen and more eclectic collectibles besides. And it’s the add ons from this latter category on we wanted to talk about today!
5da3ddf873146921bd1860429c3bdfea_large
As part of the Kickstarter campaign we’ve teamed up with a number of great companies and craftsmen to bring you some exciting (and in some cases, Kickstarter exclusive) Lone Wolf goodies:

We’ve teamed up with world-renowned dice makers Q Workshop to offer a set of Lone Wolf Dice, which are intricately detailed d10s and feature the Lone Wolf logo on the 10. Who doesn’t need more dice?
dicesetWhen you’re getting stuck in to defending Sommerlund and battling Giaks, what better way to set the mood than with the official Lone Wolf Soundtrack, composed by Lukasz Stasinksi. This atmospheric set of compositions includes a variety of moods and themes, and with tracks like Assault upon the Kai Monastery and Temple of the Plague God, they’ll inspire your players to greater feats of valour all by themselves!
CoinTabletop550The good folks over at Campaign Coins are bringing us not one, but two awesome add ons: Gold Crowns from the Royal Mint in Holmgard (great for keeping track of your in-world funds, or just for plonking down on the table as your players collect their rewards), and a set of Enamelled Tokens made from silvered-metal and ideal for flipping into the box lid when generating random numbers.
cloak_and_enameltokensFinally, we bring you the most exciting add on of them all: an actual Kai Cloak, handmade and exclusive to backers of the Kickstarter campaign by legendary costumier Jema Hewitt. With a detachable hood and fully lined, these green cloaks let you save Sommerlund in style!

Make sure you check out the campaign to get your hands on these exciting add ons, not to mention the fantastic Lone Wolf Adventure Game itself!

5 days left550There are just 5 days left for our Kickstarter campaign for The Lone Wolf Adventure Game – which means, if you’ve not pledged yet, you’ve not got long left to get involved!

The campaign is just shy of £43,000, and we’ve most recently unlocked Heroes of Magnamund as a hardcover supplement. Heroes of Magnamund is one of the expansions we’re most looking forward to, as it introduces many new characters to play, from Dwarven Gunners of Bor to Magicians of the Brotherhood of the Crystal Star to Border Rangers.

We are now closing in on the next stretch goal at £45,000 – adding a third adventure to the Kickstarter-exclusive PDF pack. This PDF pack will be something special indeed, and backers of every level will receive it: we’re going to richly detail an area of Sommerlund, exploring it to absurd levels really, and make it the setting for many of our adventures. It’ll be a corner of Magnamund that’ll be unique to backers of our Kickstarter.
OpenBoxPackShotWhite600

The boxed set at the heart of the campaign is designed specifically for players who are brand-new to roleplaying games. New gamers will be able to take the £20/$30 boxed set, containing 3 full-colour softcover books, maps, handouts and counters, and start playing right out of the box, with introductory adventures that teach them how to play a roleplaying game. The complexity builds until The Lone Wolf Adventure Game becomes a roleplaying game that more experienced gamers will recognise and enjoy just as much. With the various add ons for setting, rules supplements and maps, you can build your perfect Magnamund campaign, or give a group of new players the chance to explore this epic fantasy world like so many of us have over the last 30 years .

We're bringing all our Cubicle 7 production quality to the dazzling world of Joe Dever's Magnamund, developed over the last 30 years!

05 Doctor Who Card Game Spread

We launched the pre-order for the new edition of Doctor Who: The Card Game yesterday - you can find out more about that here. We've had lots of people asking us about the game, so today we thought we'd answer some of the most frequently asked questions about it!

Frequently Asked Questions

What sort of game is Doctor Who: The Card Game?

Doctor Who: The Card Game is a fast, fun card game about saving the universe from the Doctor’s enemies. You can read a more thorough description of how the game works here.

Who can I play?

Everyone plays as the Doctor and his companions, defending time and space from the incursions of the Doctor’s enemies. At the same time, you are sending incursions of enemies to attack the other players!

Can I play with 2 players?

Yes, we’ve added a variant set of rules so you can play with just 2 players! Or use the regular rules and play with 3 or 4.

What’s different about the second edition?

Doctor Who: The Card Game second edition features the same great game as the first edition. We’ve tidied up some of the rules text and put in some more examples. There are rules for playing with 2 players, too.

More importantly, we’ve added in loads of new cards, from the Ninth and Tenth Doctors to Rose and Martha, Clockwork Robots to Ironsides and a whole bunch of new locations, like Royal Hope Hospital (now on the surface of the Moon).

You can download the new rulebook here and see just a few of the new cards here.

I already own the first edition – do I need to buy the second edition?

Of course not! Your game will still be just as much fun as it always has been. If you want to carry on playing you can do just that – in fact, you can download the new rulebook here, if you like.

If you want a host of new cards, including new Doctors, companions, locations and enemies, then it’s well worth picking up the second edition too.

Can I combine both editions?

Yes, you can just shuffle both decks together into one super deck (for an extra long game), or pick and choose your favourite enemies, locations and characters from both. The two editions have different card backs, so you can easily sort them out again when you’re done, but this won’t stop you combining them. You can read more about doing this here.

Is my favourite Doctor in the new edition?

If your favourite Doctor is the Ninth, Tenth, Eleventh or even Twelfth, then the answer is yes!

Can I still blow up the Dalek Flagship with a Jammy Dodger?

But of course! It’s our favourite trick. You can also turn the tide of battle with an Ironside or escape in the Valiant when the going gets tough, and many more new tricks besides!

I’m new to all this but I love Doctor Who. Will I still enjoy this game?

Yes! Doctor Who: The Card Game is designed to be accessible by anyone ages 13 to 1300, whether they’ve played a card game or not.

I’ve not watched much Doctor Who. Will I still enjoy this game?

It’s still a fun, tactical card game, regardless of whether you’re an avid fan of the show or not. Of course, you’ll get more out of it if you have watched the show, but you don’t need to be an expert to play (and win!) – maybe you’ll enjoy it so much you’ll go and watch some more episodes?

Hitting the shelves of US gaming stores today – Unconventional Diplomacy for The Laundry Roleplaying Game.

Unconventional Diplomacy Cover trade dressing 700

About Unconventional Diplomacy

The Laundry is a secret branch of the British Civil Service, dedicated to protecting the United Kingdom against Horrors from Beyond. In your time in the Laundry, you've seen your share of terrible, frightening documents: grimoires bound in human skin, soul-eating computer code, ISO9001 compliance assessments. None, though, are as terrifying as the thing sitting on your desk.

It's a plane ticket. The Laundry's budgets are more tightly bound than a summoned shoggoth. If they're paying for your flights, then something hellish is about to happen overseas, and you're in the firing line.

Enjoy the complementary peanuts as you hurtle towards six potential apocalypses. This collection of scenarios for the Laundry Files opens up new and unimaginable vistas of cosmic/comic horror.

Unconventional Diplomacy includes:

  • Six complete adventures for The Laundry RPG, each with a distinctly international flavour.
  • Additional diplomatic flashpoints, adventure seeds presented as a mission briefing to hand to your players.
  • You can download a complete, free adventure from Unconventional Diplomacy here.

Softcover, black and white, 120 pages, written by Jack Graham, Paul L. Mathews, WJ McGuffin, Brian Nisbet and Gareth Ryder Hanrahan, illustrated by Malcolm McClinton and Scott Purdy.

Unconventional Diplomacy – also available in PDF!
