The 'Fighting Fantasy' and 'Lone Wolf' books are mostly successful because the limits of the characters are known by the writer. In this same vein, I will be proposing a system for solos that will offer some pre-fabricated characters, as well as rules for creation that will keep characters within the limit for what the adventure is designed for the best playing experience.
So - here is a character sheet I designed for a 6x9 page. Let me know what you think
Some of the restrictions on character creation I am thinking of are:
- Restrict Types to only Warrior and Rogue
- Restrict Kindred to only Human, Elf, or Dwarf
- When playing an Elf or a Dwarf, there will be some additional rules to restrict some of kin modifiers from getting to high (set a maximum value)
- Only carry 3 weapons during the adventure - this is more so a function of the small character sheet
