D&D Solo Adventure: Tables Of Doom - 5E Solo Adventuring


5e Solo Gamebooks presents Tables Of Doom, a new kind of solo adventuring system, containing 2 exciting solo quests! Unlike our previously published gamebooks (Death Knight’s Squire and Tyrant of Zhentil Keep), this system relies on dice rolls and tables (hence the name) to randomly generate monsters, traps, clues, encounters, secret doors, loot… all the good stuff. The final BBEG encounters (and some of the other encounters) are managed through gamebook style entries, but everything else (rooms, monsters, traps, secret doors, loot etc etc) is randomly generated, meaning that even if you play the same quest multiple times, every attempt will result in a different quest. Tables Of Doom is the first in a planned series of adventures using this system.  

Tables Of Doom contains two short solo quests: “Shadows Gather”, and “Brain Dead.” The quests are designed to be relatively short, 2 hours max for each, and both take place on the Dragon Coast of Faerun. They could be played after “Death Knight’s Squire” or before “Tyrant of Zhentil Keep,” or as stand-alones. DMs could use these quests to give their players something to do between sessions, or to level up prior to a session. We've been told that our solo adventures have also been used to playtest homebrew classes.


"This was hands down the best no-DM adventure I have seen." Arch G.

"Very unique module and well worth the price for me." Allen D.

The adventures in "Tables Of Doom" are designed for Level 2 characters, with the next volume aimed at Level 4 (our gamebooks “Tyrant of Zhentil Keep” and “Citadel of the Raven” [due April 2018] have level 3 covered). We’ve received a lot of requests for higher-level adventures, but the eventual plan is to work our way up to them, providing a linear progression from level 2 to level 20.

Just like our gamebooks “The Death Knight’s Squire” and “Tyrant of Zhentil Keep,” this pdf contains active links to navigate you between entries. 

So if you are ready for a new type of solo adventure where nothing is certain and death is just around the corner, pick up “Tables Of Doom” right now!

Hi, im still unsure if i read entries starting from 1 and then proceed just further, as long as there are no jump according to text, or if i read entries based on map number. A bit confusing

Hi Patrik
Did you read through the introduction, which contains detailed instructions for how to play through the module?

Well yes. Im just confused. I read entry 1, rolled for a room. Happened to be empty. Do i then proceed to entry 2 and read and roll a room or do i just roll a room?

Wow, completely empty? Well then, the next phase is choose your exit from that location and roll on the location table, following the play sequence to progress you through the game.

Hi. I'm confused too. Do the room numbers match the text entries, or should I move to the next entry that reads something such as, "as you descend...?" For example I resolved some stuff about an orb in entry 5. Should I go to entry 6 next? Thanks, G

Rules Edition(s)
Original electronic
Scanned image
These products were created by scanning an original printed edition. Most older books are in scanned image format because original digital layout files never existed or were no longer available from the publisher.

For PDF download editions, each page has been run through Optical Character Recognition (OCR) software to attempt to decipher the printed text. The result of this OCR process is placed invisibly behind the picture of each scanned page, to allow for text searching. However, any text in a given book set on a graphical background or in handwritten fonts would most likely not be picked up by the OCR software, and is therefore not searchable. Also, a few larger books may be resampled to fit into the system, and may not have this searchable text background.

For printed books, we have performed high-resolution scans of an original hardcopy of the book. We essentially digitally re-master the book. Unfortunately, the resulting quality of these books is not as high. It's the problem of making a copy of a copy. The text is fine for reading, but illustration work starts to run dark, pixellating and/or losing shades of grey. Moiré patterns may develop in photos. We mark clearly which print titles come from scanned image books so that you can make an informed purchase decision about the quality of what you will receive.
Original electronic format
These ebooks were created from the original electronic layout files, and therefore are fully text searchable. Also, their file size tends to be smaller than scanned image books. Most newer books are in the original electronic format. Both download and print editions of such books should be high quality.
