  • What Is a Solo 5e Adventure?

    A solo 5e adventure is a single-person interactive story that uses the game mechanics of Dungeons & Dragons: 5th Edition to play through a story as the hero.

    - Play your own 5e character made however you usually make one. The story is crafted so that all characters can succeed - or fail.

    - Take your own path through an interactive story where your decisions have consequences.

    - Fight monsters, cast spells, and find treasure
    within an original story.

    - Make progress with loot and experience that you keep in a regular tabletop game.

    The experience allows players to be a lone hero solving problems and overcoming challenges without a DM or party.

    However, each solo adventure more than a single-player game. Each story is designed to work with existing D&D 5e games as either a downtime activity between sessions or a way to add flavor to a new character prior to their appearance.

  • How the Game Works

    As you take your journey through The Wolves of Langston, you will have a chance to do all the things you probably love about TTRPGs, including rolling dice and choosing your own path through the adventure.


    - Interact with NPCs and your environment

    - Use your skills and abilities to overcome challenges

    - Cast spells, use magic items, and activate your class features

    - Fight monsters and other evil-doers


    All this works by following on-page prompts within the story and applying off-the-page effects to improve your character's chances of success. 


    The game mechanics will be familiar to anyone playing D&D 5e. From skill checks and saving throws to attack rolls and spell damage, everything about The Wolves of Langston is designed to give you the same thrill as a session at DM's table but whenever you want to play.

    Plus, re-play the adventure to explore different options. Every choice you make in this solo adventure has some kind of consequence, so take each new character down their own path.

Love it.

As a forever DM, it was an intriguing 1 shot adventure to go through.

My only wish was if there was a way to up the difficulty. It seemed a bit easy except for 1 fight.

The Wolves of Langston

For a brand new town setting and a short to medium length scenario I was really impressed. I found myself quickly immersed in the story and hungry to pursue answers to the towns mysteries. I played a lvl 2 character and found it to be a good compromise between being a bit more durable but not so overpowered that the encounters were too easy. I completed the story in around 4 ish hours and tried to stretch out the sessions over a few days but like a good book I reached a point where I could not wait to find out what was going to happens next so my sessions became longer in the end😀 For a long term player of d&d but sadly with not much opportunities to play these days I found this solo quest very fun and engaging I can’t recommend enough .
Can’t wait for the next installment - the secret of oki island - I have since backed!

Wolves of Langston - PDF review - Loved it!

This was my first solo D&D adventure and I loved it! This adventure was reminiscent of the choose-your-own-adventure books I loved as a kid but allowed me to decide who my adventurer would (using a D&D 5e character).

With no idea where the adventure would take me, I set off as a level 1 wizard and enjoyed the path I took. I enjoyed the NPCs, who all had a strong depth of character. I enjoyed the mystery and loved the red herrings.

If I were to give any criticism, it's that the adventure gives a LOT of inspiration (to the point where you could probably get inspiration on almost every roll). If you're new to D&D and aren't entirely sure what to do with your character, I'd take advantage of the points of inspiration you get to get advantage on your attack rolls, saving throws, or ability checks a lot (easy mode). Otherwise, I'd ignore them and give yourself more of a challenge (normal mode).

A fine detective story

I enjoyed this adventure during some late evenings on a family holiday. I played an optimised Echo Knight from the "d4" YouTube channel and the combat was too easy in this regard - but the detective case kept me motivated.

For future products, I suggest scaling enemies (i.e. stats are player level based), so that one can play all the solos from obvious Mimic in a row.

Marvelous Adventure, I yearn for more

I played as a Gnome Fighter from an abandoned campaign, it was alarming at times how easily my character fit into this world and story. I absolutely loved the story, characters (Roi is my favorite!) and even the villain was fantastic. I loved the combat as it was simple for me to manage (though a certain undead creature took me longer to fight than I care to admit) I was truly baffled trying to solve this mystery at first and once the pieces fell together I was 80% sure I was right, and I was! It ended on a cliffhanger though, and I'm dying to continue this adventure, PLEASE WRITE A SEQUEL ADVENTURE!!!!
