This is not a game itself, but a modification to games of a particular subgenre (think OD&D or B/X) so that the math allows a single adventurer to play through older modules. If you like this, take a look at Scarlet Heroes by the same publisher, which takes this and builds a complete game around it.

Works great, used it alongside Mythic Game Master Emulator to test drive a couple short moduels in Dungeon Crawl Classics. After taking an hour or so to read over the book I was playing solitaire in no time. Very intuitive system that once you play through a fight or two becomes second nature and does not add much in the way of complexity on top of your current rules system.

I am trying to figure out a way to run GURPS with it though as I am developing some smaller one shot adventures and I want to run thrugh them first with a solo character, but have not devised a system for it yet.

This lays out modifications for playing an adventure with only one party member. It details the five inherent issues with solo adventures then sets out to address them. Highly recommended. Also includes a sample adventure for a single first level character.

Good premise, fantastic price, probably overly complex with all the stats adjustments. Good for Labyrinth Lord/Old School DnD. Around 10 pages, pretty much a free advert for the author's Kickstarter project, but it does offer practical content.

This book and quest are supreme If you're looking for a way to run a solo quest. A little difficult to understand the Frey dice at first but after reading through the directions a couple times it was easy to understand. The mission that came with it was fun to run as a drop in quest for a campaign I am currently running for a solo person who is ring to catch up with the group. All in all a great book.

Pros: Improves solo PC longevity but doesn't increase the class abilities as a side-effect - you still have the fun of leveling up and gaining power but your risk of dying before you ever see any kind of growth is mitigated. Simple to implement Allows you to play published adventures with a single PC with little or no modification of encounters Works with your existing character generation rules Works with existing game mechanics

Cons: If you are wed to the idea that the game is one of nobodies struggling and dying on their way to fame, fortune and hero status, this changes the very nature of the game: they are a hero of sorts at the outset, in the sense that they are able to withstand blows that would kill them in party-of-PCs game quite easily.

Like everything from Sine Nomine Publishing that I've read or used, "Solo Heroes" hits the nail squarely on the head. This brief, free product does precisely what it claims. It lets you run a single character through most OSR adventures without modifying the adventure's contents or changing what's on the character's sheet.

I've posted a couple of videos that talk about my playtest experience with "Solo Heroes".

Excellent and simple advice for running solo games. Using these rules to run a game for my wife.

How has this not been reviewed? It's a perfect little set of rules, download it now! Truly staggering insight into quick little mechanics to make a solo-PC campaign perfectly possible.
