Did you know Sonic had a gamebook series from 1993-'96? Gamebooks were like like TTRPs only made for one player, had a very simple character sheet where a six-sided die was all thats needed and the GM was the book itself.

So I made my own TTRP thats more of an adaption of the book that blends traditional TTRP elements and modern Sonic gameplay into something simple and easy accessable to play.

Keep in mind that there is no "leveling". Character progression is decided on the player and the GM but all players have a standard set of strengths, weaknesses and abilities that mix-and-match us to our various challenges. This allows the RP to be more story driven than being under powered for situations while still presenting challenges when needed.

Also know that these rules are still WIP. Unlike usual TTRPGs I made them extremely simple just like they were in the gamebooks but still extremey flexible. If there is still inbalances or flaws that will upset gameplay then we can work it out.

Still given I'm perhaps the only Sonic fan on Ponyville.us /rp/ and still waiting for my SOnic gamebooks to arrive in the mail I doubt this RP will flourish much.

I'll admit filling out a balanced stat sheet with the point system I implimented is a bit hassle (Normally Mystic is a speed-type) given making a stat with all six makes it useless.
I wonder how the gamebook dealt with such a problem? Perhaps I can fix it with that.

Anyway I think I got a more stable stat sheet making system. It's not perfect but it'll do.

OK so no one signed up yet. Can't really be surprised given I know I'm perhaps the only Sonic fan here.

But ironically I see it as a good thing no one signed up because the Sonic Adventure Gamebook I've been waiting for arrived. I once had this book ages a go and vaguely remembered how to play it. Turns out I've been wrong on how it's played and able to correct the gameplay in mind for this here RP.

I've also resorted my characetr stat-sheet given it makes more sense to have more points on a stat than less.

Name: Mystic Monkey
Gender:
Class: Speed
Statistics:
       Speed: A (6)
       Power: E (2)
       Jump: D (3)
       Technique: C (4)
       Charisma: D (3)
       Wisdom: C (4)
       Perception: E (2)
       Luck: B (5)
Skills: En garde, Dodge/Defend (Speed) & Climb (Technique)
Backstory: Hailing from the Forest Zone from some anglic land, Mystic Monkey is a nowhere man who goes to various places and helps out where he can to be the hero he always wanted to be.
Inventory: Sword, Custom Shoes

Also while not a TTRP Adventure Guidebook, I may use this gamebook as a guidebook for this RP.
