Too bad  :(

I like your games system, but I almost never play it, because of lack of interest in my aera. So I focus on solo gaming almost exclusively.


By the way, I don't know how is evolving gamign community, but if people is getting older and older, solo gaming will become more popular I bet. Getting older make finding players more difficult (no one in my friends or relative plays minis anymore).

While I understand your dilemma, solo rules are something I have experimented with writing, and not found ay real success or satisfaction with.  I may take a stab again at some point, but not right now.

Almost need to come up with an "Enemy action deck". A series of random actions the enemies can do (Attack, Run, Special Action like take hostage, set off bomb, surrender...)
Looking for a set of rules that adaptable for different genres.

Just wanted to update folks that I have started working in earnest on SuperSystem 3rd ed, revised for a POD/PDF release in early 2014.  

The rules will remain largely the same, but I have incorporated all known errata, and added a few extra bits here and there.  We'll do a new layout, and I am commissioning a new cover.  Do folks have a preference on size/binding?  I have not looked into all of the Lulu/Drivethru RPG options, but I think digest-sized and standard, 8.5" x 11" sizes are both options.  If we do a smaller size, we could also offer hardcovers, I am guessing.

What do folks find has the most utility around the table?  

Thanks for any feedback!

I have the PDF.

I might buy the rules just to sweeten the pot when I sell my 25+ mm supers (or to justify buying 15 mm Supers) so I will be looking for the announcement this is a "go."

Gracias,

Glenn

The PDF is pretty good, not sure where you are but I really like how Uncle Mike spiral bound his Strange Aeons book and the paper quality was nice.....it may be pretty cool to get it designed like a comic book or graphic novel....a hardcopy would be nice.

I like hardcovers myself. Small digest ones are also handy.

Sundayhero, I am not promising anything definite, but this morning I have dusted off some of my previous failed attempts at Solo rules, and I am gaining some traction on them.  So this could happen for SuperSystem 3rd ed., Revised.  

I will need a play-tester, and I am conscripting you if these rules get to a point where they will need testing--hope you don't mind!   ;)

Anyway, I will tinker with them some more on and off today and try to keep you updated.  Significant hurdles remain, but we shall see.  And at this point, they will just be for SuperSystem.  I cannot write a set that unifies all of the disparate Goalsystem mechanics.  But they should be adaptable, I think.  

More as I write it!

Hey, Sundayhero, PM me when you get a chance and I will share you on a Google doc that has the SoloSystem rules as they stand right now.

Thanks!
