For the soloers!

Your amazing YouTube channel brought me here and although your videos are very in-depth (so some of the book was repetitive for me) this book is a brilliant companion and really makes the solo gaming experience far smoother! Thank you and don't hesitate to collect this gem of a book.

Great book

A great book it's not just a set of tables it gives you all sorts of ideas on how to expand your narrative and run Solo games. Highley recommended.

Solo rpg? This is a must!

Read it twice already! ( once in digital, once in hardback). This will be the go to book for solo players! This will be the book that people refer back to in years to come as the "Solo roleplayers Bible". A real must have. Well done with this Deborah. Really well written and very inspirational. I will be using all these ideas going forward


I can't fault the author so apologies to her but to Modiphious the size of the book is not worth 26 pounds plus the p&p. Even if a limited print run. Very disappointed. I know it's a niche market but as a RPG book fan I can't recommend this book based on its price.

Hi Julian, print costs have increased by 30% this spring, so we're absorbing some of that rather than pass on to customers, all prices across the industry are going up due to world events, but also so we can pay creators, and staff better. The book will be available in stores so people don't need to pay the shipping from us


If you’re familiar with the Geek Gamers YouTube channel then this book will be of interest. There is a lot of content to be sure. I don’t have the time to delve into a group rpg so this book is a god send.
Excellent quality hardback book with lovely illustrations throughout. What I’ve come to expect from Modiphius tbh, a very nicely packaged book. If you have the five parsecs book it’s exactly the same format. Hoping the five leagues one will be the same size as they will look nice together on a bookshelf.
