2015 In Review


Thank you, everyone, for supporting these voyages as they doubled in production. I like to thank several people for this:

  • Zach Best of Conjecture Games, who made what is perhaps my favorite Engine of the bunch, the Conjectural Roleplaying GM Emulator, as well as some neat drivers, one of which I use on a constant basis.
  • Tana Pigeon of Word Mill Games, who made the Mythic GM Emulator, which is what helped kickstart my solo roleplaying voyages.
  • Kenneth Norris of Solo Roleplayer, who made the Fate Solo Engine, as well as the Guide to Playing Alone, which are always great sources of advice.
  • Sophia Brandt of Dieheart, who made the Tiny Universal Engine and whose blog is worth a good read.
  • James D’Amato of the Oneshot Podcast, whose… well, Oneshot Podcast is also worth checking out. Oh, and also thanks for the boost in traffic.
  • The Lone Wolf Roleplaying group, who I settled into their community with ease.
  • Everyone who has made an RPG, engine, and/or driver that I had featured in the past year on Solo RPG Voyages. Yes, that includes Jack Cactus.
  • And you, for reading this blog and supporting me throughout the year.

The last time I made a post like this, someone by the name of Overthrow requested that I posted more. I tend to think that’s how I resolved to do a nearly-weekly schedule of content. To ensure that there’s more content.

Or perhaps it was my resolve to play games that interested me or games I had collecting dust that I would want to play badly. Whatever the case, here’s to 2016, and hopefully many more to go.

Now if you excuse me, I’m gonna go fight off some rats in a robot made from love. Oh, and here’s the link to WordPress’ stuff. Here’s an excerpt:

The concert hall at the Sydney Opera House holds 2,700 people. This blog was viewed about 12,000 times in 2015. If it were a concert at Sydney Opera House, it would take about 4 sold-out performances for that many people to see it.

[SGAM 2015] Let’s Play Braunstein! Part 4 – Four Is Death

Alright, let’s go back to the Braunstein. When we last left them off, Skyla and Drake are gonna fight, while the DJ and the Assassin have gotten to the bottom of the assassination… But they’re not saying anything. Well, time for us to settle this conflict once and for all. As we noted back in Part 1, Skyla’s forces are a bit crippled. Continue reading

Tips for a Solo Campaign

For the last month of the year, I decided to release a list of tips regarding making a solo campaign. Not as in-depth as, say, The Solo Roleplayer’s tips on making solo campaigns a la EPIC, but these might help you think more about playing in campaigns.

We all want to do it at some point. Some of us already have. If you’re a solo roleplayer, chances are, you wanted to one day play a campaign solo. However, there’s a bit more bookkeeping to endure. I actually did a small campaign at one point and in this post, I will show you what I did and what I could have done during that campaign that might make that bookkeeping easier.

Note: This post is made with Mythic in mind. Continue reading
