Terrors and Tommyguns Solo Rules


The Terrors and Tommyguns Solo Rules are great for Directors trying to test out an interesting idea for an adventure, or for those who aren't able to find a regular group to play. Featuring 22 pages of supplementary rules, there's never been a better time to jump in and begin unravelling the mysteries of the universe!

The Terrors and Tommyguns Solo Rules require a Terrors and Tommyguns Corebook to play.

From the foreword:

Questions sit at the heart of solo playing. They are the engine that drives it all forward. The Terrors and Tommyguns rules make frequent references to Advanced Dungeons and Dragons, so I will continue to use that for some of my explanations.

There are broadly two types of questions. The first is expressed as a yes-no question. The second  is a question that cannot be answered yes-no. In AD&D terms, when you rolled for Wandering Monsters, you asked a yes-no question. Was there an encounter? Yes or No. If the dice said yes, then you would roll on a table either in the dungeon master’s guide or maybe in the adventure module, telling you what the encounter was with. When you had that answer, you could either go straight into rolling for initiative or be a bit more creative and think about how you could use the thing you rolled in your game. For example, in your first level adventure, if you rolled a random encounter and it said dragon, you may have the characters stumble upon some dragon footprints or evidence of a recent meal. The thing you rolled was used as the seed from which you improvised something that fitted the adventure and characters.

If you can roll for a wandering monster, you can pretty much solo play any game.
It is as simple as that.

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.
