The Readers' Handbook unveiled!

Attention all Lone Wolf fans: The Readers' Handbook is finally here!

After much work, editing, and behind-the -scenes deliberation, Project Aon is proud to announce the official release of the Readers' Handbook. This area of the site is devoted to the many and varied rules for Lone Wolf, Grey Star, and Freeway Warrior.

Designed to replace the now-defunct Rules Handbook, the Readers' Handbook is divided up into sections, each of which explains the rules for one particular series: Kai, Magnakai, Grand Master, New Order, Grey Star, Freeway Warrior. These annotated rules sections are designed to help newer fans, as well as old hands, understand the rules more clearly.

Also of interest is the extensive Topical Guide, an interlinked A-Z listing that helps explain special rules for each particular item or skill, how they apply to the game, and how they affect other rules. This Topical Guide should make the rules clearer to all Lone Wolf fans new and old alike. Be aware that the Topical Guide may contain mild spoilers for the later books, so be sure to read only those headings
that you intend to.

Enter the Readers' Handbook through the following portal, which is also linked from the Books page of our site:

We have a little more work planned for the Readers' Handbook, such as adding the complete New Order rules set, and expanding the Freeway Warrior sections. However, these are quite a low priority right now, so release of the Readers' Handbook has been brought forward to free up resources for other projects.

We hope the Readers' Handbook will help to answer the many questions about the Lone Wolf game that are regularly posed without fans having to wait for us to reply.

For Sommerlund and the Kai! (And for annotated rules instructions, too!)
