Tiny solo adventure

Post Mon Feb 15, 2021 8:18 am

Heya everyone,

I made a really tiny pamphlet adventure a few weeks ago kinda based on how I like to play Basic Fantasy modules using solo oracles. Basic Fantasy is precious to me, so I thought it might be fun to share here on the forums. Maybe someone else who enjoys playing solo can use it as well.

Cheerio,

John

This looks very interesting. I'll play this with my brother. I know that a player can DM and play solo adventures, but I've never heard of this technique with the random, cryptic table answers.
May I ask how you created this document? Did you make this in Microsoft Word or Libreoffice Writer and export it as a PDF? I'd like to make my own adventures in the future.
Also, there are some white boxes at the bottom of the second page, in the PDF file. Are those unicode characters?

Heya Mythos, thanks a bunch! I often play with my son like this. I have fun playing GM-less for sure :) I whipped up a trifold template for A4 in Affinity publisher and exported to pdf. The boxes are from the Affinity glyph browser.
Cheerio!

Thanks for sharing this! I have yet to run a pamphlet adventure but I have always been so intrigued by the format and layout of these I love just reading and collecting them lol.

I just printed it off and hope to run this solo, and play through it blind without reading it ahead of time. I might record my play through and post it on my little YouTube channel lol I'll post back here if/when done. Thanks again.
