So, I’ve recently bought a physical copy of the Sentinel Comics RPG Core Rulebook. I’m yet to actually play, but I am fairly certain that the first Book* that I will participate in I will be Moderating, and my sister will be the only player. I’m also fairly certain that she will want to play only one Hero.
I know that the SCRPG was designed mainly with Hero Teams of 3+ in mind, but that it can also accommodate solo Heroes. So, I’m mainly here to ask for advice on running a Game with only a single Hero. What do y’all recommend doing differently? Any helpful tips or tricks?
More specifically, I’ve noticed that creating Scenes might prove somewhat problemsome and limited. Moderate Difficulty Scenes, for example, can only contain 1 Moderate Difficulty Scene Element, or 2 Easy Difficulty ones. This means that (in Moderate Scenes) Villains and Environments will always be the only Elements in their Scenes, and I’m not really sure how an Environment-only Scene would play out. (Or a Challenge-only Scene, for that matter.)
Also, since = 1, a single or Minion is a whole Moderate or Difficult Scene Element, respectively, but so is a whole Villain without or with Upgrades, respectively, which seems a bit wonky.
Anyway, any thoughts or advice are appreciated.
