Before starting our game I have read through these forums and compiled a huge list of tweaks and house rules to make the game work for solo. However, when we started finally playing (Theft of the Moon initially) the only house r...

Player knowledge of adversaries

Hi all, I have been around the forums for some time, but so far I have been only taking advantage of the excellent Palantir! I have recently started playing TOR with my wife following the many good suggestions on this forum on how to run a solo campaign. It works much better than I would have though...
