ADVENTURING ALONE

Using Hero Kids.

Hero Kids CompatibleIt was recently pointed out to me that most solo role-playing appealed to GMs, as they were already used to improvising and creating content on the fly. Players are more used to improvising from prompts within the context of a scene. This is the 'What do you do?" question. This solo book is aimed at players, although GMs can use it just as easily. In creating a solo adventure it offers questions about the location, scenes, and encounters to encourage the solo player to engage with their version of any Hero Kids setting. A number of d6 tables aid the process of creating a spontaneous adventure.

These solo rules suggest a structure for each adventure that takes you from an event to engage your character, the plot hook, through to a final showdown with a villain, and a return home. At each stage, you will be asked questions about your character and the scene. Once you start solo role-playing you will just use the rules from Hero Kids (required to play). This is not a 'module' or numbered paragraph adventure. You will be improvising the entire adventure as you go.

Part of the inspiration for this set of solo rules came from this blog post: https://wispsoftime.com/content/rolling-solo-chapters-2-3-tutorial-mode-first-solo/ which also uses Hero Kids as a simple starting solo game system.

The entire contents of this supplement are available in the full-size preview. Please take a look and make sure you think you can play this way or are prepared to give it a go. Solo role-playing can be extremely satisfying and challenging, in a good way.

These rules require Hero Kids to be used and are not intended to be used by young children, they are designed for role-players who want to try solo role-play and use Hero Kids as a simple system to get started with.

Format

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.
