Warlord Games Adds Solo Player Rules For Warlords Of Erehwon Because 2020

As isolation has become the theme of 2020, more and more multiplayer games have adapted their single-player rules to help us deal with the time alone. Warlords of Erehwon players will be glad to know the tabletop fantasy miniature wargame is joining that list. Warlord Games recently posted the solo-player rules to its website, along with the scenario Tomb Robber of Erehwon.

In the announcement post, Warlord states the Tomb Robbers scenario is a “dungeon crawler” game, and came about due to the continued lockdown brought on by the COVID-19 pandemic. Warlord also said the scenario is a simple affair that can be played solo or co-op, thanks to its use of pre-programmed enemies. However, also due to current circumstances, the developer stated the scenario is “horribly under play-tested”, and that you should “fiddle with the hero and monster values as you see fit.” Oh, and the solo rules are available to download for free.

The Tomb Robbers of Erehwon solo-player scenario is a 25-page PDF designed to be used with the Samurai miniature line for Warlords of Erehwon. WoE has six sets in this line that are recommended for the scenario: Samurai Heroes, Ninjas, Sohei Warrior Monks with naginata, Onna-bugeisha with longbows, Bandits & Brigands, and Tengu. And since it’s a tomb-robbing scenario, Warlord further recommends using the Skeleton Warriors and Orc Warband miniature sets as tomb-raiding fodder.

To make use of the solo-player Tomb Robbers scenario, you’ll need to know the basic rules for Warlords of Erehwon, of course. Then it’s just a matter of adapting the gameplay turns as follows:

1. Add new tile section2. Generate monsters3. Heroes move4. Monsters move5. Special actions

In true tabletop roleplaying game fashion, the scenario also comes with 16 color playing (map) tiles you can print out and use as encounter tiles for your game. A standard single-play run of the Tomb Robbers scenario is designed to end after seven turns, “or when all the heroes have left the tunnels or are dead.” However, by randomizing both the drawing and the placing of the encounter tiles, the scenario can easily be turned into a campaign for a variety of player heroes and enemy creatures.
