A downloadable game

This is an enhanced version of so1um 0.6 by Matt Jackson, a solo-rpg system geared to fast play with lightweight and elegant rules, which combines D6 and clichés.

While Matt Jackson's version 0.6 is perfectly playable as is, I added a bunch of random generation tables, the new oracle system Recluse by Graven Utterance and players aids with a 108 clichés list and about 60 monsters and encounters.

This is not a new game but simply an augmented experience.

Have you looked at So1um Expanded Edition by Carsten Rossner?
I like what you've collected here & the Bestiary is nice. My only issue with the Graven Utterance oracle is the doubles = Twist. Rolling doubles doesn't answer my question. It's just a preference thing but that's why I don't use it though I do use a 2d6 method.


This looks interesting. I was not aware of Matt's version but he was cool enough to playtest Osseous, my first stab at writing "a system", using Ray Otus' solo rules.

Looking forward to playing around with this one.

Otus did a great job to streamline the concept of Mythic GME, but I prefer the more easy approach of Tiny Solitary Soldiers, but also a little bit of crunch of the Recluse oracle (since FU oracle used by TSS has a boring distribution). It’s a pure matter of taste, I guess. Let me know the results of your play session when it is done!


I've enjoyed using Tiny Solitary myself but did need to jazz it up a little. I only discovered Recluse today after look into So1um. I'll certainly let you know how I get on. 👍
