The Solo Wilderness Crawler

The Solo Wilderness Crawler


5e Solo Gamebooks presents The Solo Wilderness Crawler by Paul Bimler. This one-sheet wilderness / hexcrawling tool is intended for solo players, and just like its companion product The Solo Dungeon Crawler (available here), is designed with one factor in mind - compactness. Using just this A4, printed and laminated, you can generate endless overland hexcrawl adventures for yourself and your characters. The idea is that you can take this double-sided A4 anywhere and use it to generate your wilderness quests using only d6s. For the ultimate experience, pick up The Solo Dungeon Crawler as well, so that you can explore those ruins and caves that lead you into dark, twisting tunnels!

The Solo Wilderness Crawler is system-agnostic, and designed to work with any fantasy RPG. As with all my products, I encourage you to take what you want from the system and leave out what you don’t want, substituting other tables or resources as you see fit.

Two versions of the product: white hex with ice battlemap, parchment hex with grass battlemap. Every combination of those, as well as a version with a plain white hex and battlemap, is provided.

I suggest you print this product out, double-sided, and get it laminated so you can use it over and over with dry-erase markers. Or, you may prefer to print many copies and keep every hexcrawl you generate. 

The front side is designed as a random hexcrawl generator, with a small-scale hex for you to map out your overland adventure as you move through it. Hence, this side is where all the terrain generation tables are located. 

The flip side contains some other tables, as well as a battlemap for running close-quarters combat. The battlemap grid is a bit less than an inch. I decided to reduce the size a little so that more squares could fit on the page. However, a miniature with a 1-inch base will still sit comfortably on these squares, with a little overlap. Three versions of the product are given: one with a grass battlemap, one with an ice battlemap, and the other with plain white background. 

The flipside also contains Terrain Tables, a Basic Oracle Table (the same as the one in The Solo Dungeon Crawler), a Wilderness Features Table, Structure TableWeather Table, Settlement  Table, optional Monster AI Table (for randomising monster actions) and a Wilderness Monster Encounter Ideas Table.

You will notice the file size is quite large. This is to ensure printing clarity.

So what are you waiting for? Endless adventures await your characters as they journey across unchartered worlds! Pick up this outstanding product and get exploring!

Recently, I soloed my way through the OpenQuest Quick -Start: The Lost Outpost (free at DriveThruRPG, 73 pages). I used The Solo Wilderness Crawler (1$ at DriveThruRPG) as the solo engine. For OpenQuest, I did use the adventure and the six P.C. charact [...]

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.
