Guide to Playing Alone


'Not tonight, sorry.'

'Sorry, I'm busy.'

'I've got a big project at work.'

'Can't this weekend. It's my little one's birthday.'

How often have we heard, or said, something similar to the above?

However, even that is better than moving to a new area and not having anyone to play with. Which happened to me.

I thought my roleplaying days were finished.

I was wrong; I found a new way to roleplay.

I discovered *solo* roleplaying.

Solo roleplaying is a way to roleplay when you are unable to roleplay with mates. It can't take the place of time around the table, but solo roleplaying gives you a deep roleplaying experience, one that requires only yourself. The only excuses you'll hear are the ones you bring.

There are three key elements to exploring solo roleplaying:

1. Know Roleplaying

2. Know Thy Self

3. Know Thy Toolbox

In this guide I'll help you explore all three and give you guidelines on how to start roleplaying alone.

I was already planning on picking this up (having an interest in solo and 1-on-1 gaming to use with my older son), when I saw this excuse 'Can't this weekend. It's my little one's birthday.' - it just so happens that this is in fact, perfectly true. I love serendipity ;D

I love serendipity too, Anne!

I hope that the 'little one' enjoys their birthday. :)

Scanned image
These products were created by scanning an original printed edition. Most older books are in scanned image format because original digital layout files never existed or were no longer available from the publisher.

For PDF download editions, each page has been run through Optical Character Recognition (OCR) software to attempt to decipher the printed text. The result of this OCR process is placed invisibly behind the picture of each scanned page, to allow for text searching. However, any text in a given book set on a graphical background or in handwritten fonts would most likely not be picked up by the OCR software, and is therefore not searchable. Also, a few larger books may be resampled to fit into the system, and may not have this searchable text background.

For printed books, we have performed high-resolution scans of an original hardcopy of the book. We essentially digitally re-master the book. Unfortunately, the resulting quality of these books is not as high. It's the problem of making a copy of a copy. The text is fine for reading, but illustration work starts to run dark, pixellating and/or losing shades of grey. Moiré patterns may develop in photos. We mark clearly which print titles come from scanned image books so that you can make an informed purchase decision about the quality of what you will receive.
Original electronic format
These ebooks were created from the original electronic layout files, and therefore are fully text searchable. Also, their file size tends to be smaller than scanned image books. Most newer books are in the original electronic format. Both download and print editions of such books should be high quality.
