Story time - the next night - "Mommy, I remember that Alaha is now stuck in the book at the closed library. But, you told me that she has several pets at her home. Are they hungry and dying?" - and the response - "Oh. Uh." - a bit of a pause - "Alaha's home is a magical place. Her pets are all smart, can talk, and have opposable thumbs/claws. They were watching Alaha's adventure through her crystal ball in her bedroom. When they see that she is stuck in the magic book, they decide to go and save her. To get to the library, they will need to go through the sewers. As soon as they enter the sewers, Raven, who knows one spell, sees some runes on the wall. She studies them and figures out the words they represent. When she says those words, the runes change to a map of the sewers. Raven memorizes the map and they continue onward. Next, Rack the raccoon finds a glowing magical sword of light. When he picks it up, it changes to its true identity, a magical sword of chaos. It is stuck to Rack's hand. After this frustrating encounter, they encounter an area of wild magic. Raven tries to master it, but instead, it takes her spell away. The next thing that they find is a friendly fungoid (see attached image) moving dirt. They help him for five minutes and then continue on. A friendly rat greets them, but the sword of chaos lunges at it and gives it a mortal wound. They run further into the sewers in terror. To get into the library, Rack uses his strength to push the grate up. Inside, they find themselves surrounded by raccoons who have felt the presence of the sword of chaos. They challenge Rack's authority, but he convinces them to follow him. Rack now has his own cult and they leave the library through the high open window. So, near the magic book is Raven and fox and otter. They open the magic book, but nothing happens. When they all touch it at the same time, they are sucked into the magic book and are transformed." "Mommy, what are they transformed into?" "Becky, that is another story for another night." - - The game system I used to play this was QuestDoc6. This system has ten pages and uses a six-sided die. It is designed for solo play and includes an oracle and keywords. I did create a list of 26 possible keyword/encounters and pulled the adventure randomly from it. This was a fun challenge! Give this a try!

This has potential, but I feel that the 6 aptitude scores feel... too weak.

Guaranteed, I know why the creator has done that, but I feel that the 6 scores would at the very least be platable if there are 2 or 3 free points to spend.

Nevertheless, this is an interesting game wiht great flexibility and freedom. Good job!

Thank you so much for the review. My intention was to make beginning characters be mediocre or have significant strengths offset by weaknesses. I find that solo roleplaying plays better with a fair bit of failure. Admittedly, though, I think I went a bit overboard. Definitely something I will have to test and potentially update. Thank you for sharing your feeeback!

For the past few days, I have soloed my way through Skitter Shot (2018) and Skitter Crash (2019) (Starfinder). They are fun, connected, free RPG Day items. They are designed for a Dungeon Master and several players. You are playing skittermanders which encounter a messed up ship (think cruise ship) and then get stranded on a dangerous planet (see attached image). The system that I used to solo this, and play it, is SpaceDoc6 (free/pay what you want at DriveThruRPG). It is a full solo RPG condensed into a 12 page PDF. You generate a character by determining 6 Aptitude Scores. A variety of Tables and Keyword Generators will decide where your journey takes you, who you encounter, and what obstacles you face. This is a rules light RPG that only requires one d6 to play. But, I used the two modules for the adventures. I also used the four characters that are included. My characters did encounter space pirates in the first adventure. My crew managed to damage their ship and the pirates took off to hide and repair their ship. In the second adventure, the space pirates are back for revenge. On the planet, the messed up quantum reality spanner leads them to an environmental hazard. Soon after this, they encounter a scientist grappling with a gator in the water. My skittermander took a shot attempting to kill the gator. Instead, he shoots the scientist in the head. Oops! They hide the body and then try to find civilization. It took some time, conversations, battles, and quick thinking, but they did manage to get back into space. Give it a try!
