# On RPGs
I purchased the Tunnels & Trolls original 1975 rule-book reprint and the Adventurers Compendium as pdf files. The deci
sion was made because of solitaire play. In addition, many solo adventure pdfs are available for free. Played solo, it's a cros
s between RPG and choose your own adventure. You can also play T&T with other people as a straight up RPG.
I played my first solo adventure tonight after creating a character (an elf rogue). T&T only uses d6's, I used the rolldice scr
ipt I found on the net to simulate these. It was enjoyable, but I need to learn the combat system. That part made me feel a
little lost (I've never played RPGs before). I feel confident that the algorithm could be scripted to feed off the roll dice sc
ript, but it seems to me that may lessen enjoyment... I should likely buy some dice.
