Fight some Gnomes! Barter with a Harpy! Fix a Robot! I don't want to say too much else 'cause it's pretty short. If you've never played a gamebook, they're like Choose Your Own Adventure books where sometimes you roll dice. Normally they're longer than this, a good way to get a feel for them is Project Aon, which offers a digital version of the Lone Wolf series.
This started as a doodle I did during Lunch Supervision at work. I put the art together pretty quickly. It was mostly an experiment to see if you could make an interesting series of decisions in a pocketmod. I'm pretty happy with the high roll to fight, low roll to skill system, with each class getting a die. I might mess around with more of these in the future.
Print it up and fold it like how you do with pocket mods. The rest of the instructions are in the zine.

I should gain Sphere, encount harpy.
For the Bandit: Does "6s explode" mean if I roll a 6, I can choose to make my roll either 6(*explosionCount)+1d6 or a new 1d6?
