Gary Chalk Interview

Lone Wolf Logo

Remember the LoneWolf Boardgame I supported on Kickstarter? I wrote about it here. I never actually played it although I still plan to do so. Today, however, I found this really interesting interview with illustrator Gary Chalk who was the main reason for, well, everyone to fund this game as he is the original illustrator of the Lone Wolf Game Books from the 80s. I learned several lessons from the interview:

1. Gary Chalk was working for Games Workshop

2. The Lone Wolf Boardgame rules are from a never published Games Workshop game (I think I knew this before but today it was new to me)

3. Ian Livingston and Steve Jackon are not only the authors of some fantasy game books I own, they are also founders and ceos of Games Workshop and brought AD&D to Europe

4. There is a Mobile Game Book named Gun Dogs featuring illustrations by Gary Chalk (apparently only iOS)
