Look, we don't all have the luxury of having a regular gaming group.  :buck2:

She posts quite often in the Lone Wolf Roleplaying Group G+

Thanks for that link bbmike.

I have been considering on a solo RPG just to do some narrative writing, so I frequent the G+ group. There's some great ideas too.

Or his deserts are small,

To win or lose it all.”  - James Graham 1st Marquess of Montrose

Here is some stuff I recommend, most of it relates to playing with a single player or limited prep:
Scarlet Heroes This is an original D&D style sword & sorcery Oriental Adventures style RPG. High quality, and it has many supplements for hex crawling and the like. It's designed to be played one-on-one, though you can also play Red Tide if you want to use multiple characters without all the bonuses for solo heroes.

Mythic takes some work to use but it's a pretty good random event/plotline system. Rules-wise it's just like the original Marvel Superheroes, but can be integrated with pretty much any RPG system.

There are a couple of solo-play (no GM) AD&D-esque Oriental Adventures-styled adventures that were high quality and a lot of fun, but I can't remember the names of them and have too many PDFs to locate them.
