Has anyone tried this game?, im trying it for 2 reasons the last months ive run a campign for 1 player ( a grand mother of 65 year old), and the one to one aproach of this game could be great for me, tired os adjusting encounters, now im trying the solo rules based on Mythic GM Emulator, and is great. For now im going to a trip of a week, i would try the one to one aproach in 2 weeks.
I Know that really doesnt need rules for that type of game but tools are welcome for me.
This is my current ruleset, adjusted with some things as always! I am playing with my 2 boys, 8 & 10, and it rocks. It is written to allow you to run a solo PC through an OS module and give them a chance. The PCs are glass cannons, basically. So they can;t just wade in and win, negotiation and retreat are still required options. However there really is no adjustments to be made, I am running my boys through some Frog God stuff, notoriously lethal. I feel I can do that with 2 Scarlet Heroes PCs and not be accused of child abuse!
SO I cannot recommend this more highly, there is a free trial set of rules, give it a go.

I'd also like to commend Scarlet Heroes for its excellent schedule performance. I pledged on the Kickstarter for this in mid-January, and received all materials by the end of March. I've supported six Kickstarters to date, going as far back as early 2012, and this is the only one that has delivered so far.
Is there a link for this? I'm not sure that I've seen Scarlet Heroes.

My link skill is 0%, but I know this is available through RPGNow/DriveThru RPG. From Kevin Crawford, of Stars without Number fame. Scarlet Heroes is an OSR style system for playing sword & sorcery adventures with a small number of players--including just one GM and one player. I'm still at the early impressions phase, but so far, it looks very nice to me.
