[Mongoose] New This Week – Lone Wolf and Paranoia

By on 30 March 2010

Two new releases are coming hot from the Mongoose presses this week, a scenario for Paranoia: High Programmers and the much, much, much awaited Lone Wolf Multiplayer Gamebook.

Lone Wolf Multiplayer Gamebook

Launched in the 80’s, the Lone Wolf series of gamebooks quickly became firm favourites among a growing fan base. Alone among the gamebooks of their day, Lone Wolf was the only one to feature a cohesive and exciting world, and an extended campaign in which your character could grow and expand as he travelled through all 28 books of the original series. This was the first true mega-campaign!

Prepare to return to the world of Magnamund, this time with your friends. The Lone Wolf Multiplayer Gamebook is a full roleplaying game, based on the simple rules system of the solo books – it is so easy, anyone can play! The first book in this range brings you the core rules, introduces the Kai Lord character class and presents three introductory scenarios to get you started.

None of this is my Fault

Three missions for High Programmers! Stay alert, trust no-one and keep your army of heavily armed bodyguards handy! Try to drag your corpulent, twisted body from the zero-gravity couch and toddle on down to the Situation Room for…

  • Joy in the Morningcycle: Rimbaud-B, the greatest chef in the sector, is missing, presumed fed. The High Programmer who acquires Rimbaud-B’s services will be the perfectly-sliced-melba-toast-with-caviar of ULTRAVIOLET society. The fate of not only Alpha Complex, but Rimbaud’s Sylphides à la crême d’amusant chaud hang in the balance!
  • The Iceman Returneth Again: You find the weirdest things in the vaults. Expired nuclear weapons, abandoned doomsday devices, mutated things with tentacles… And frozen High Programmers from the earliest days of Alpha Complex. Who wants to hit the defrost button?
  • When Things Were Interesting: The annual all-sector FunBall tournament is in its final stages. It’s the biggest – and only – sporting event in Alpha Complex, and everyone from the lowliest INFRARED to the highest of High Programmers will be watching. Anyone for a little wager on the results?

About Dave McAlister

Dave has been roleplaying for over 30 years, having played and/or run most mainstream systems with the espionage genre being an early favourite. So much so that, in 1999, he started Modus Operandi. That same year he joined the Sarbreenar "Living" campaign team as their plotline controller before moving across to the Living Spycraft campaign team (as UK Regional Branch Director) in 2003. 2003 also saw the birth of UK Role Players as well as Dave's first freelance writing appointment (co-writing World Militaries and consulting on both US Militaries and Battlegrounds, all for Spycraft). Since then, Dave has concentrated on supporting the UK gaming scene. He has organised and run several small, one-day, events and was the RPG Area Manager for Gen Con UK in 2004. His current favourite systems are Dungeons & Dragons (specifically 5th Edition), Savage Worlds and Cinematic Unisystem. He has a (currently neglected) blog at dave.mcalister.org.uk and runs a D&D 5e SRD website at DnD5e.info.
