I’ve been dabbling with Vaesen by Free League Publishing for a bit now.
It’s nice investigative driven RPG set in an alternative Nordic 19th century, along with an expansion which covers Ireland and Britain during the same time period.
So as a forever DM, I was pleased to see a set of rules for solo play has been released.
It utilities a series of random tables to drive the story and encounters, making use of both dice and standard playing cards.
It was the later, the playing cards which I found rather cumbersome in use, so to that end I knocked up a simple web-page to simplify that part of the process.
You’ll still need the solo-rules, but image below (showing a sample card) takes you to web-page.
Pressing “Deal Card” will deal a new card from the deck of 52, creating and shuffling a new card deck as required.
Pressing “NPC State” will deal two cards, which are used to determine an NPC state to the players.
