Lately I've been thinking about doing some solo or all-player (no GM) rpg gaming and have been looking for things that will make this easier.

This desire was spurred by finally getting around to reading through the Mythic Game Master Emulator (GME). I really liked what I've read and it seems like it might be really the only thing I'd need. I am looking forward to trying it out and seeing first hand how it all fits together.

That said, reading over some of the examples and sessions I've found online I have a feeling there are going to be some things I might want spelled out for me. Mythic relies on players to make inferences about the game world through relatively small leaps in logic. Sometimes (not all the time!) I would rather have these leaps in logic made for me. While I enjoy the "create a story" aspects of rpgs, which Mythic seems to excel at, there is a significant amount of enjoyment that I get from the "explore a new world" aspects. In this sense I am asking that some of the logic necessary to make Mythic work be either already given to me, or given to me in some systematic way (die rolls, card use, lookup tables, etc.).

These thoughts led me to remember the Appendix in the first edition AD&D DM Guide (DMG)... It was filled with tables on random dungeon and wilderness creation, along with tables for random encounters in each. When I was a kid, my friend (the DM) would use the tables to create dungeons on the fly to kill us players in. We had a blast. I still have my old DMG and plan to run a few expirements using it with the GME.

I'm creating this list to keep track of items I've found that could help make solo/GM-less exploration rpging easier. Basically anything with lots of tables and ideas to help flesh out a dungeon, city, world, etc. GM aids, supplements, detailed setting books with lots of lookup tables, anything that might help I'll be adding here.

Although not a strict requirement, I'm hoping to keep the items on this list as system neutral as possible. I would ideally like to use these tools to try a bunch of different rpg systems out.

I'm opening the list up to things others may have used or heard of. I'd love to hear other's experiences if they've done something similar. Please feel free to add.

Putting this list at the top as it is asking a very similar question, though focusing primarily on multiplayer GM-less gaming. Several really great suggestions and ideas here, thank you:

This is what brought about the desire for GM-less gaming. After reading this through, I have no doubt that I could use only this and have some great solo gaming.

The GME relies on the player to make several small leaps of logic in order to make inferences about the game world. By asking Yes/No questions and using what the player already knows is true about the game world (or assumes is true), these leaps of logic help give detail to the world.

More complex questions can also be asked of the system, with responses given as Action/Subject word pairs that the player is left to use logic to interpret. These Action/Subject pairs draw out the player's thoughts on what the answer could possibly be, frequently giving surprising results.

Although this system is very simple (there are a few other moving parts not detailed here), it can generate very detailed stories and random events.

The Appendices. A whole bunch of tables for random generation of dungeons, wilderness areas, castles, cities, loot, NPC parties... Lots of cool tables begging to get used.

Using just the appendices, I'm guessing you could play a fairly detailed roguelike pen-and-paper rpg. Will definitely be trying this out.

UPDATE: added the freely available OSRIC to the list as it has all the tables the DMG has (I think).

I haven't been able to read through this yet, but just flipping through the pages it looks like it could really help out. The intro says it should allow you to create settings, plots, and characters on the fly. I will definitely be giving it a read through as it might be a great tool for quickly building NPCs and settings in a systematic way.

I would really like to try this one out and see what it involves. There aren't many reviews online yet... Need to look into this more.

Would this allow someone to roll up a random NPC with character traits? Is it strictly used to generate new types of monsters?

This is a complete dungeon-crawl style role-playing boardgame hybrid that is available for free from the publisher's website here.

I still haven't got the chance to read over the rules in-depth, but the random dungeon generation and "plot" subsystems look like they might be usable in other rpgs as well. Each scenario has it's own dungeon generation tables.

A two player game that uses a standard deck of cards to simulate story-telling elements coming into play. One player plays the "World" and the other player plays the "Hero". The author has posted a solo variant where the "World" player has been automated. He has several session reports on his site, and it appears the main mechanics are system neutral. Need to look into this more.

I include these setting books (there are two in this set) as they not only had several chapters detailing each area in Greyhawk, but they also had a ton of random encounter tables for each area. This was really nice for answering questions about what kind of NPCs you might encounter in a given area such as knowing how likely troglodytes are encountered versus elves.

Although the books give all stats in OD&D terms, these sections are very brief giving the book a very system neutral feel.

I'd love to find a few setting books with lots of lookup tables. If you're reading this and know of any good ones, please feel free to add them to this list.

Interesting game where you build the pieces to the game world and then play in a randomized version of it. Most of the world generation comes from a deck of special cards. Made a copy of it, but still need to read the rules a bit more. May have to mine this world generation idea...

This RuneQuest book is chock-full of random tables! If you find it cheaply enough it could be useful for randomly determing what kind of shop you've just burst into and who lives there.

There's even a table to determine how much treasure and experience you've gained on a adventure, and whether you survived or not, so you don't need any other tables.

Not highly thought of, Cities might still be useful for you in your solo gaming.

After a quick overview, it looks like the tables in the OSRIC contain everything the 1st ed AD&D DMG Appendices contained (yay!). Including the random dungeon generator and random wilderness generators. Guess I'm a little late to the party...

Reading over reviews, this looks nice. It splits encounters by terrain type (including urban) and has non-NPC encounters for each such as "unusual weather" and "notable occurrences".

One thing to note though: it appears encounters don't consider character level. This doesn't really bug me (set a re-roll threshold on EL), but it might bug some.

Although this is heavily geared towards AD&D (1st ed) and the OSRIC, there are just too many tables not to mention this.

As per a lot of the other entries on this list, the CDD#4: ENCOUNTERS Reference contains random encounter tables for several different types of terrain. Despite the name though, this reference contains a TON of tables that aren't geared towards random encounters: treasure tables, random wilderness generation, settlement/city creation, and even campaign creation.

Interesting to note, this reference contains a lot of the tables from the DMG appendices that aren't in the OSRIC.

It is freely available from the author's website: http://kellri.blogspot.com.

DonJon is one of the best kept RPG secrets on the internet in my opinion. I found this site some time ago and forgot about until today. There is some excellent generated material on here. If you need a random dungeon filled with level specific 'stuff' then this is the place to get it. Simply amazing. This would work so well with World vs. Hero in my opinion.

I have just added this to the Decktet page if it would be useful. It is a totally flexible system for generating character backgrounds quickly and intuitively (once you get used to it you actually don't need the tables). Obviously your choices will be based on and skewed by your gaming world, and it can be as detailed as you choose to make it, but it has two more great advantages it's quick and it's cheap (free - bar the cost of printing).

Saw this didn't have its own entry. It deserves one. I would put this right after the GME in terms of utility.

Very useful for determining more nuanced NPC interactions beyond a simple "reaction table" roll a la D&D.

There is a Revised version now on DriveThruRPG, but from looking them over I'll stick with the previous release. They got it right the first time.

Got this one on RPG DriveThru as a PWYW product.

It's nice & has a lot of content, but it's of the gonzo/weird sword & sorcery/pulp-y/slightly tongue-in-cheek milieu.

So if that's your thing you can probably buy sight unseen, but otherwise you might want to "try before you buy" as it may not be for everyone IMO.
