Welcome to Magnamund
Joe Dever's Lone Wolf has inspired a generation of readers and gamers alike. Since 1984, it has sold more than 12 million copies, been translated into 18 languages, and won multiple international awards. Each exciting episode can be played separately, or combined into a fantastic role-playing epic spanning 32 books.
With the publication of the final three books, the saga soon comes to its epic conclusion, 35 years since fans began their journey.
"In the northern land of Sommerlund, it has been the custom for many centuries
for parents to send their most gifted children to the monastery of the Kai on the occasion of their seventh birthday. There they are taught the skills and disciplines of their noble ancestors. The Kai monks are masters of their art, and the children in their charge love and respect them in spite of the hardships of their training.
"Magnamund. A world of myth and fable, of teeming oceans and tranquil forests,
harsh deserts and violent volcanism, born of the epic struggle
between the Gods Kai, Ishir and Naar.
A world on the brink of disaster.”
Lone Wolf is the life's work of Joe Dever (1956-2016) and was a major contribution to the fantasy culture of the 80s. Unlike other gamebook series, Lone Wolf is one continuous narrative. The world of Magnamund is explored in 115 published works.
Beyond the novelisations and gamebooks, the world of Magnamund has produced graphic novels, apps, audiobooks, atlases, sourcebooks, board games, and RPGs. But to discover the origins of Magnamund, we must go back to 1977...
