The bestselling Lone Wolf gamebook series by the late Joe Dever (1956-2016) introduced a generation of British teens to fantasy gaming. Dever's dozens of gamebooks cast readers as Kai Lord warrior-monks defending the world of Magnamund against the Darklords of Helgedad.
The book series spawned a couple of licensed roleplaying games, most recently The Lone Wolf Adventure Game from Cubicle 7 Entertainment. Cubicle 7 funded the new game in an August 2014 Kickstarter campaign. This new offer presents almost the entire Lone Wolf Adventure Game line for an unbeatable bargain price. Epic quests, thrilling combat, and dangerous adventure lie ahead.
Taking the Lone Wolf gamebooks as the inspiration for its system, LWAG is a great introduction to tabletop RPGs. The Initiate-level game keeps the mechanics to a minimum. Task resolution uses a 1d10 roll. A normal success requires 6 or higher; difficult tests require higher numbers. In combat, you roll your Combat Skill minus your opponent's. Experienced players can up the complexity with the Master-level game, which provides a variety of options: a more complex combat system, new character options, and Kai's favor, a currency for helping you succeed at tasks.

I'll be honest, I won't be downloading this - I lost interest in this sort of generic fantasy adventure setting many years ago, and was never a huge fan of the gamebooks. Having said that, it's a fairly playable system, presentation is excellent (not surprising considering the publisher), and you get a lot for your money. If this is the sort of thing you're looking for, it's a reasonable deal.
