        I guess it makes sense that friendless losers who have to resort to solo TRPGs would think TRPGs have the same appeal as vidya.

          You must be very unimaginative to think that, also solo isn't necessarily mutually exclusive to traditional ttrpgs. I can see a lot of use in employing solo procedure to generate and test scenarios.

                My friends, which I've done several times to great success. Having 3-4 more sets of eyes looking at your system can expose problems you didn't know were there and give you new ideas you didn't know you needed in the system.
                >Also generating scenarios through procedure is a fun in itself
                It's incredibly dull and creatively bankrupt. It's literally just rolling on tables and that shit is boring as hell and done 1000x better by video games. If you want to play table rolling simulator, go play a video game so those of us with actual social skills can enjoy a SOCIAL HOBBY like TTRPGs together without you misanthropes.
                >drives your ideas towards not immediately apparent directions.
                Except not immediately apparent =/= good. It's far better to have multiple people giving feedback in real time. I speak from experience, but you wouldn't know anything about that since you live in a whiteroom because everyone hates your guts.

                Sure, but independent of other mechanics and the actual chaos of a real game being run with multiple people all doing different shit they're utterly useless for determining how a game is balanced unless it's some dogshit ruleslite garbage where everything is roll die compare to target with no actual meat on the bones.

                To get a true experience and understand all the moving parts at once rather than theorycrafting in a whiteroom. You can make all the calculations you want, but unless that shit works in actual play with actual players and actual mechanics you're wasting your time.

    The chaos factor system is neat if you want the narrative progression to have that "what will happen next?" quality that's lost when you have too much control. The random event and table stuff is useful too. Everything else feels like a rule put in for people who are completely aimless and those who have no understanding of tension.

    Why do you homosexuals even pretend that the structure of an RPG even works when you're alone.
    A dungeon crawl boardgame works alone since it turns into a complex puzzle. Videogames work alone because they were structured by the developers.

    But playing an RPG by yourself makes zero sense. There no true challenge, no possible surprise or discovery, no true interaction. You decide at every moment if there is five goblins or ten. What is even the point compared to literally any other activity you could do yourself, it's utterly meaningless.

      >no true challenge
      rpg challenges boil down to die rolls
      >no possible surprise or discovery
      Mythic GME does generate random events. Also fate questions are a way in which you learn new information. If you knew how Mythic GME worked, you'd know how wrong you are. Because each scene of your game can possibly be forced by the system to be a random event, the game can go into unexpected directions. Fate questions also mess around with the facts of the setting, further introducing random and unexpected details.

        >rpg challenges boil down to die rolls
        Only if you reduce it down to absurdity, the context of those roles and the decisions behind them form the true base of the game.
        >Mythic GME does generate random events. Also fate questions are a way in which you learn new information.
        Yes everyone uses random event tables when playing RPGs but there are clear limitations to them. Like repetition or having to bend reality to make it fit.
        And it still robs the true enjoyment of cooperative play and the surprise it brings when someone does something you never could have expected or changes the flow of the entire game through their decisions outside of your control.

          Except when the guy rolling a couple of words on a random table by himself does more improvised storytelling than the GM who has a table full of players but starts crying and shitting the second they diverge from his railroad.

          You obviously have never played a solo game, (or even have a clue as to what they actually are,) if you think you can't be surprised by the outcomes of tables or oracles. Solo roleplaying games use GM Emulators and oracles specifically to change the flow of the game and bring it outside of your control.

          Not everyone plays because they can't find a group. Some people honestly prefer solo play over playing with a group:
          >You can play whenever you want for as long as you want
          >You can play whatever you want. Whatever system, whatever character, whatever setting.
          >You don't have to wait for your turn.
          >You can focus on whichever aspects you prefer in a game. If you just like combat, you can do that. If you just like role playing, you can just focus on that.
          >You can try out things you can't comfortably or easily do in a group.
          >Your game is only limited by your own imagination and capacity for juggling characters, plot-points, and content in your head
          >Your game is largely left untouched by the FotM bullshit that everyone else is talking about in their group games. (Don't like a system, genre, trend, or fad that's currently going on in the tabletop gaming zeitgeist? You never even have to hear about it.)
