ABS12 Flexible Solo Game Engine

This is a flexible solo game engine that is meant to take the place of a Gamemaster (GM) for answering questions or finding the results of modified rolls. A chart with results for 1D6, 1d8, Fate, Fudge, 1D10, 1D12, 2D6, 3D6, 1D20, 4D6 JAGS, and 1D100 systems is included. It makes it a versatile game engine.


The type of question that you ask will determine which table and column you consult.

Yes or No - Simple yes or no questions can be asked. Complex answer, with degrees of yes or no answers, may also be asked.

Number count - This gives you a number from 1 up to 8. This interprets the number as a countable quantity.

Order - This interprets the number as a cardinal number: first, second, third, etc. This can also be used for ordered lists.

Option - This gives you a letter which can be used to pick unordered lists. Unordered lists are options listed in no particular order. You just write down a few alternatives.

Direction or Movement - These tell you which way something is located or is moving.

Truth - The truth is whether or not something is true or false. A partly true answer means that the character believes that not all of the answer is true although some portion of the answer may be true.

Responding to Change - This is how someone or something responds to a changing event or situation.

Gestalt - Gestalt principles explain how people can perceive multiple sensory information primarily from sight, sound and scent based on patterns and dimensions. Touch and taste sense can be also perceived to add greater depth.

Importance or Urgency - You may want to know if a detail is important or urgent randomly.

Planning Stages - Sometimes in the gamestory, you will want to know randomly what stage in a planning cycle something is at currently.

Stages of Grief - You may encounter someone that is recovering from a traumatic experience or loss. This may tell you randomly which stage they are at in recovery.

Problem Solving - What stage in problem-solving is someone at in the gamestory?

Scientific Method - In a methodical situation, what step is someone at in the gamestory for testing a hypothesis?

Non-Count Nouns -This gives you a random word to describe the quantity of a non-count noun word.

Countable Nouns - This gives you a random word to describe the quantity a countable noun word.


All of the answers are interpreted depending on the context of the gamestory.

Original electronic
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.
