Players Guide to Solo Roleplaying

Using Cepheus Engine for Solo Play.

Parts Per MillionSolo roleplay is put forward as being for anyone who wants to play when there is no one else available. Most solo tools are actually built with the Game Master in mind. GMs are naturally more used to improvising entire scenes, creating NPCs on the spot, and having to grab random tables to create content on the fly. These are not normally player-facing tools and skills.

These solo tools add more support for players who may be less familiar with having to improvise everything. It supports world-building as an incremental process and challenges you with questions about the scenes and events to make you think about sights and sounds you may not have considered.

Solo is a perfect way to learn a new game, test your first adventures and going beyond just making characters when you are first getting to know the rules.

Your adventures are supported using a structure very similar to the adventure structure presented in the Cepheus SRD, but slightly modified, and a simple 2d6 oracle for asking questions and creating unexpected events.

What makes this better or different than Zozer Games - Solo?

I don't like the idea of better or worse than a different solo product, it uses a different approach. Zozer's Solo uses a unique approach, one that I haven't seen anywhere else. My rules are more traditional by comparison, and possibly easier to extend with more cool random tables and solo tools as you grow into solo play.
These rules are also much shorter, and about $5 cheaper.

No problem, in case you are wondering who I am, I published the print on demand version of Cepheus Engine under 'Moon Toad Publishing'

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.
