Lost Worlds - Fantasy Combat Books


LOST WORLDS COMBAT PICTURE BOOKS: Many of you may remember the lost worlds books by Nova Games from years ago. These books are a DICELESS fantasy combat system. Each player has a book, and you play by giving your book to your opponent, who reciprocates. You each pick a maneuver from your list of options, and tell the other player a page number. You each turn to the specified page number, and see what the other person is doing. For instance, you may choose to lunge at me, while I choose a side swing. When I turn to your page, I see you lunging at me, and when you turn to my page, you see yourself getting a hit on me. After I take a specified number of hits, I have lost the combat. It’s very easy (the complete rules are included on each book) and very quick.

The game was created by Alfred Leonardi. And in 1983 it won the Origins Award for Best Fantasy Boardgame of the year.

Umslopagaas Shiny Teeth; With Scorpion Tail - Scorpion/man wizard with mage’s staff. Umslopagaas came from the jungle lands near the Dragon’s Claws. With ebony skin and ivory teeth, with ironwood staff which could dash the brains from man or monster, heUmslopagaas with the Shiny Teeth was a fighting wizard welcome in any group of adventurers facing evil magic and long odds. Deep in Uncle Ugly’s Underground, Umslop claimed a Zodiac Gem as part of his plunder, and it claimed him - giving him a lethal scorpian’s sting growing from the base of his spine. Now, twice as deadly as before, he runs his own dungeon in Khosht - - the famed Deathtrap Equalizer Dungeon. Meet him in combat if you dare, but don’t be surprised if he vanishes in a cloud of sorcery if you’re skilled enough to wound him. A smart wizard always gives himself a way out. - $5.95

Flaming Cherry, Barbarian BeautyFlaming Cherry: Barbarian Beauty with falchion and shield. Called Flaming Cherry for the exotic color of her hair, she left the streets of Khosht to go dungeon delving and adventuring. Luck and beauty kept her alive long enough to learn the rudiments of survival. Then one day she freed a genie from an enchanted statue. The genie offered her one wish. She could have chosen wealth or safety, but all she wanted was battle luck, for she gloried in pitting her brains, speed, and skill against men and monsters. She fought her way out of that pit of horrors, and since that day she has never been beaten in single combat. Will you be the first to defeat Flaming Cherry with a sword, or will you be another of her conquests? - $5.95
Kharis; Royal Mummy with Mace  Kharis is the guardian of the ruins of Tor Menchi, where in life his treachery brought destruction. Now inKharis: Royal Mummy with Mace everlasting penitence, he rots away guarding the very treasure he betrayed. Beware, for this fiend of life is a noble adversary. Some say to avoid this place called Tor Menchi; go elsewhere, into the light of day. But if the prize is more precious than life, then a king’s ransom waits, glittering amidst these fallen towers. Dare you to think? Dare you to plot? - $5.95
Chiron; Centaur Guard with short axe & shield in chain mail. Chiron clambered up the craggy cliff. Few other beings had the ability to patrol theChiron: Centaur with short Sword crater’s rim, and only the foolhardy dared. "But wait! Is that not an intruder? Some silly being is making his way up the treacherous pass. He answers not my hail - - then answer this!" said Chiron to himself as he hurled a persuasive spell, bathing the intruder in an engulfing flow of crimson magic. Yet onward the intruder came. Readying his axe, Chiron prepared for the inevitable. - $5.95

Amara Wintersword; woman in chainmail  She’s a barbarian, she’s beautiful, she carriesAmara, the Beautiful Barbarian with Battle Axe a battle axe?
  Missed the axe didn’t you? While you ogle some of this barbarian’s finer qualities, she prepares to defeat you in battle. What her axe cannot handle alone, her dagger and fiery rage defeat. In addition to creating a distraction, the small pieces of chainmail she wears protect as a full suit of armor as well as deflect all lightening spells. ... Many years she spent escorting treasure or guarding the life of this wizard or noble. Unexpectedly, Amara found herself under attack; assassins hired by her own employer. Claiming to help her in this battle, she was left for dead by a trusted friend only to be nursed back to health by another. Amara now travels from place to place, sometimes realm to realm, seeking answers. Will you stand in her way? (Compatible with all the other Lost Worlds books. Book/game design by Alfred Leonardi.

Zocchi The Magician with dicebag Zocchi the dicemaker isZocchi the Master Magician famous for the high-quality little gambling stones he makes for players worldwide. But few people realize he is also a powerful magician, one of the oldest in the world. Among the inner circles of mages, he is known as "The Ancient One". If you are foolish enough to challenge him, you will discover that not only can he cast powerful spells, he can use one of his magic dice bags as a mace or as a shield. And you do NOT want to see what can come out of his magical top hat.. Put YOUR Lost Worlds Book Here We have in the past offered to make personalized Lost Worlds books, but the price was too high for most folks. So I have come up with another way that perhaps is more affordable. Instead of us taking the pictures, laying out the books, and printing up 20 copies, we'll let YOU take the pictures, we'll lay out the books, and send you a pdf that will allow you to print out as many copies as you like.

Pick out the weapon you want to use in your photos. Send us $49.95 and tell us which weapon. We will send you the list of photos to take. Get a friend to photograph you in those 32 poses. Put the photos (in jpg format) on a cd and mail it to us. We'll lay it out into booklet format and send you back a cd with your book. You can print the book yourself, or have your local Kinkos print it out for you, in black & white, or color.

BATTLETECH LOST WORLDS COMBAT PICTURE BOOKS:

Many of you may remember the lost worlds books by Nova Games from years ago. These books are a DICELESS fantasy combat system. Each player has a book, and you play by giving your book to your opponent, who reciprocates. You each pick a maneuver from your list of options, and tell the other player a page number. You each turn to the specified page number, and see what the other person is doing. For instance, you may choose to lunge at me, while I choose a side swing. When I turn to your page, I see you lunging at me, and when you turn to my page, you see yourself getting a hit on me. After I take a specified number of hits, I have lost the combat. It's very easy (the complete rules are included on each book) and very quick.
Why am I telling you about Lost Worlds? Because there were some licensed "BattleTech" books done in the Lost Worlds patented system.

We have what we believe is the remaining stock of these books, and when they run out, they can not be reprinted for various legal reasons!
They are: (You need at least two books to play): Griffin, Locust, Rifleman, Wasp, Shadowhawk and Warhammer. Unfortunately we are completely sold out of the Griffin books, Wasps and Warhammers, and we never had any Shadowhawks. We have plenty of Locust & Rifleman at $4 each. You can play the game with two copies of the Locust as Locust vs Locust. Or perhaps you can find some of the other books elsewhere.

(Remember, you need at least two books to play, and the "BattleTech" books are not compatible with the other Lost Worlds books)

Many Battle Tech fans have read the novels by writer and game designer Michael Stackpole, set in the Battle Tech universe. If you are a fan of Michael, and want to read some of his other game-related fiction,
you might want to pick up the "Fiddleback Trilogy". This is a series of three books based in GDW's "Dark Conspiracy" universe. They originally sold for $5 each, but you can buy all three from Flying Buffalo for $10.
