This book is excellent. Initially I was sceptical about the author's self-DMing system; I thought that the cognitive dissonance entailed in being both a player controlling a character (plus sidekick) and a DM would render the adventuring process joyless and lacking challenge or a genuine sense of adventure. I was wrong. The simple systems sugegsted in this book (including an elegant oracle that answers questions a player may ask a DM) work brilliantly, provided you take things slowly, giving yourself plenty of time to create and develop your character, and imagine scenery, environments, monsters' appearance and behaviour, etc. As Tom Scutt acknowledges, playing published scenarious solo will inevitably lead to you stumbling upon spoilers, but they're no worse than the minor spoilers you see in a movie trailer. I also bought the sequel, DM Yourselves, and used advice in the appendix to steer me through Icewind Dale: Rime of the Frostmaiden, which I'm emjoying immensely. Wonderful stuff!
