Lone Wolf Adventure Game gets three new adventures
Adventures of the Kai is the brand-new book for Lone Wolf Adventure Game by Cubicle 7. It features three adventures for your Kai lords to experience, along with two chapters packed with advice for writing and running your own adventures. The three adventures have the Kai lords saving a kidnapped groom, tracking a lost expedition party into the Wildlands, and investigating a gruesome murder. The two narrator advice chapters focus on practical, step-by-step advice on creating your own adventures and gives solid, functional advice on what to do when you are expecting your players to turn left, and they turn right. It includes a series of random event charts to help you out in a pinch.
The Lone Wolf Adventure Game is Cubicle 7’s answer to the age-old question of how to introduce neophytes to tabletop role-playing game. With it, you can not only teach new gamers how to roleplay, but you can also hand it to them and have them teach themselves. With it, a new group can sit down, open the box and be playing right away.
Pre-order for Adventures of the Kai will be available later this week and the PDF is already at DriveThruRPG for $15.
