From the back of the book:
YOU are Lone Wolf
In a devastating attack the Darklords have destroyed the monastery where you were learning the skills of the Kai Lords.
YOU are the sole survivor.
Now you must choose special skills, select weapons and then begin the game, where you make decisions and fight in combat using the unique number system. You vow to seek revenge against the evil forces.
You must reach Holmgard to warn the King of the gathering evil. The servants of darkness relentlessly hunt you across your country and every turn of the page presents a new challenge. Make your decisions carefully-for they can help you succeed in the most fantastic and terrifying journey of your life.
If you survive you may use your skills and weapons in further adventures!
