Gaming Perspectives with Saul and Jolene Episode 145: Solo RPGs

March 28, 2021

     Though Saul and Jolene touched on the subject before Saul thought that a whole episode detailing Solo RPGs would be worth while.  

     With the Pandemic still raging across the world, though there is light at the end of the tunnel, some people are not able to play with their normal group and for one reason or another do not want or cannot play RPGs online.  And they want to still get that RPG feel from a table top game.  

     Enter the Solo RPG experience.  Saul and Jolene discuss how today's solo games are remarkably different from the "Choose Your Own Adventure Books" of years past.  Many of today Solo RPGs implement modern RPG ideas into a Solo rpg experience.  

     Saul and Jolene discuss the vast number of Solo RPGs that are available in print and in PDF format.   So you could literally be playing within minutes.  There are also quite a few Solo RPG version of many popular and obscure regular RPGs.  Some require a core book from a regular rpg, for example Alone From the Loop, needs the core book for Tales from the Loop but other are complete solo rpgs.  

     All the games Saul and Jolene discuss are available from Drivethrurpg.  By the way they do not sponsor our show in any way.
