The Darke Crusade

The Darke Crusade – Attempt 1, Part 1

Aside : Based on the comments to my previous entry, I have made certain judicious adjustments to my starting equipment.  See the bottom of this post for the changes. Well! Let’s be honest. I’m still reeling after the pun a certain commenter on the previous post made about Lone Wolf being ‘in the Darke…” In… Continue reading The Darke Crusade – Attempt 1, Part 1

The Darke Crusade

The Darke Crusade – Background

OK! Firstly, a milestone! This is the first Lone Wolf book that I am playing with absolutely NO foreknowledge whatsoever.  By that, I mean that my collections of physical Lone Wolf books (back in the day) only extended to book 14. So – my results from here on in are purely attributable to my old-school… Continue reading The Darke Crusade – Background

Interlude – Loose Ends (and AMA)

Hey, everyone! I’m back in Melbourne, and have greatly enjoyed a couple of weeks in sunny climes. A few points before I jump into The Darke Crusade. I have started another blog!  As usual during holidays, I took a bundle of books to read, and my new page will contain (brief) reviews of every book… Continue reading Interlude – Loose Ends (and AMA)

The Captives of Kaag – Attempt 1, Part 12

A breathless cliffhanger! A villain with (another) barely pronounceable name! Lone Wolf falling below 12 Endurance points!! And a sidekick comes through in the clinch, as Banedonus ex machina casts some kind of ‘Holding’ spell, allowing me to quickly administer the coup de grace. As the Zavaghar collapses in a humiliating pile of defeat, Cadak throws… Continue reading The Captives of Kaag – Attempt 1, Part 12

The Captives of Kaag – Attempt 1, Part 11

For those who came in late…. My Brass Key skills enabled me to open a locked door and progress to…. a ‘sumptuous chamber’ with a ‘magnificent fireplace’…? Did I just walk into a game of Cluedo? Maybe not, although it is noticeable that as I pass by the walls, which have been hung with ‘fine… Continue reading The Captives of Kaag – Attempt 1, Part 11

The Captives of Kaag – Attempt 1, Part 10

Before anything else, I must apologise if I am a little off my game today. You see, in around 4 hours, this film event will be happening for me : I do not apologise for Star Wars references which may find their way into this instalment! Carrying on from the end of our last thrilling… Continue reading The Captives of Kaag – Attempt 1, Part 10
