Just finished the 2nd quest in Solo Skirmish... and I am convinced that this is the best solo product so far.  The way that each location is broken up into an Exploration, Combat, and Hero phase is genius!  By the second location of the first quest, the events of the exploration phase were weaving together to form an actual narrative.  This narrative made the combat phase meaningful and not just some random battle... The whole experience felt less like solo play by entry number and more like DMing using story seeds...  I can’t wait for the next installment of this story. - Elias Luna

5e Solo Gamebooks presents Solo Skirmish: The Cult of Mol'goroz, the first in a new series of solo campaigns. The Cult of Mol'goroz is a five-quest solo campaign that takes place over 15 different locations, with accompanying battle maps and location tables, and will take PCs from level 1 to level 6. This is for the type of player who likes a bit of quick combat-based solo action, with each quest taking about 30-90 minutes, depending on dice rolls. In the Solo Skirmish system, an in-game AI acts as DM and controls the action, with the player (running 2 PCs) or players (running 1 PC each) responding. There are also adjustments for a party of 4. Solo Skirmish sits on top of standard 5e rules, comprising four phases of play and taking place over three locations per quest. For example, the first quest "A Devilish Dilemma" has three locations: Town Outskirts, Ruined Temple, and Dungeon Catacombs. Each of these has its own battle map and location table. 

The four phases are: 

  • Location Phase (roll on location table)

  • Encounter Phase (roll for a combat encounter)

  • Hero Phase (Each PC takes two actions from a list of possible actions)

  • Threat Phase (Threat score advances by one and triggers an event)

The emphasis is on fast-paced action and combat, with rapid leveling, much like a tactical board game. Roleplay only extends so far as the players controlling characters and making decisions for them. However, with the range of possible outcomes from rolling on the thirteen included location tables, and the numerous random encounters and item table rolls, every playthrough of this campaign will be different from the last. Even more so when you take into account the wide variety of different PCs that you can run through this campaign. A range of sidekicks is also included, which you can meet through location tables, or through recruiting when in settlements. 

A fantastic unique twist on classic D&D that will keep the dice rolling and the levels flowing while you battle and travel through a very satisfying quest. - Christopher Logue

Solo Skirmish reimagines 5e rules to balance a fast-paced arcade feel with a compact, but complete story linked to Paul Bimler’s other 5e Solo Adventure books. It’s a thrilling ride. - David La Boon

Fast-paced, intriguing, and challenging, these solo skirmishes are perfect if you do not have time for a full game but still want a story/experience with depth. Also very fun for 2 players! - Jessica Laurent

If the words solo, skirmish and D&D tickle your fancy, you don't want to miss this!

- Fitzgerald Limisella

Much of Solo Skirmish is theatre of the mind, which means it is perfect for a quick, compact game requiring practically no set-up time (beyond creating your PCs). There are elements of standard multichoice solo adventures, as well as a simple, boardgame-inspired system that provides RP-light, quick, and tactical solo quests.

In addition to being a great solo campaign, it is also a great resource for DMs. Contained within is a plethora of ideas relating to random encounters, banes, boons, events, and other miscellaneous occurrences for you to insert into your own quests. 

So pick up this intriguing new product and give yourself a very different D&D experience!

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.
