5th Edition D&D Solo Rules


Right from the beginning there have been rules for solo playing D&D. These rules are intentionally faster and lighter than others available in the DMs Guild.

These are not the first solo rules for Dungeons and Dragons. There have been solo play rules build into the game right from the first edition.

For a genuine DM free role-playing experience though you need some additional assistance, more than just random rooms and corridors.

These are not the only solo rules available. The granddaddy of them all is the Mythic Game Master Emulator (GME). All solo role laying games owe some small debt to Mythic’s GME. An alternative is 5E Solo Gamebooks The Solo Adventurer’s Toolbox. That gives you nearly 170 pages of rules and tables of D&D specific solo role play tools.

These rules are different but if you have the Adventurers Toolbox and you like it then you do not need this book.

The thing that makes this set of solo rules different is that I find too many tables and too many dice rolls break the suspension of disbelief. For me the story is more important the scrolling through hundreds of pages for the right table.

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.
