None of the Above
Lone Wolf, if you’re not familiar, is a series of of fantasy roleplaying gamebooks by Joe Dever, taking the “choose your own adventure” style and applying D&D-style mechanics and feel – you collect magical artifacts, roll dice in combat, and even retain equipment and abilities from one book to the next. Lone Wolf was inspired by Dever’s own Dungeons & Dragons game, and the influence of the most popular RPG can be seen throughout the book’s twenty-something volumes.
This is not simply a reprint, however. This new edition of volume one, Flight from the Dark, expands and extends the original material. If it’s successful, we can expect to see the rest of the Lone Wolf series follow. The cheapskates among you can head over to Project Aon, where the first twenty-five books have been placed online.
