Yesterday I soloed my way through The Jade Hare for Basic D&D (9 pages, three to four hour adventure). It is designed for a Dungeon Master and several players. I used Paul's The Dungeon Oracle to solo it because I had played through it almost two years ago. I used five low level characters to play through it. Instead of Basic, I used Encounter Critical which is free/pay what you want at DriveThru RPG. This system was designed as a joke, it is a bit of a mess, but it works. The most exciting adventure scene was halfway into it when a crazy dice roll triggered a tricky trap. My rogue was poisoned and had to be dragged through the dungeon. The most interesting scene was when the Oracle told me "important armies" in the dining area. I interpreted this as - on the large dining room table, a diorama has been set up showing terrain, landmarks, and groups of figures/something is being planned/a clue to the next adventure. So, this first adventure was completed and the rogue recovered. Good luck!

EC: (Purposely) Hillariously bad, and somehow so perfect! Whether or not you plan to play it, there are tear jerking lines in every page of this book. So read it! (And play it!)

Treasures of a Slaver Kingdom: A hysterical text adventure game that I cannot recommend highly enough. I danced around playing this for far too long, and once I finally got around to it, I could not believe what I was missing.

Speaking as an unbiased observer of the role-playing game scene, Encounter Critical is objectively the best RPG.

All you other game designers can go do something else. Your task is done.
