Question Playing T2k 2nd edition V2.2 with one player and one GM

Is it possible? Has anyone done it? How did it go? How would you go about running and playing a game like this? All I have so far is to make some Characters to fill out the Unit. I hope you all can help me.

It can be done and was done by my GM on a few occasions back when we played in the 80's but we used the original rules back then. Specifically it was used when one character got separated from the group and he ran individual one on one until that character got back to the group.

And have run into that situation with other games too - was in an AD&D campaign where we took on the wrong monster and only one guy survived. Was run as an individual survivor campaign until he got back to a town and then we started the group again with new rolled up characters that he "recruited".

Certainly it can be done.

I would have the player design 1 or 2 other characters. If his primary ones gets badly wounded, he can take over one of thee others, which (having created them) should partially feel like "his."

The player just needs to be careful about what he chooses to take on to fight as opposed to evading.

Consider that for every groups of 6-8 with a couple vehicles evading the destruction of the 5th Inf in Poland there are are probably 10 groups of 2-3 on foot...

(Your mileage may vary, and you may well be elsewhere in the world.)

I completely agree about the small groups that would have gotten away - after all that is where many of us got our replacements if we had characters get killed - i..e the loner we picked up in Krakow (who replaced someone we lost in a firefight getting there as we did the Black Madonna first) - or the two "POW escapees we picked up near Warsaw (again to replace lost original characters)

having a one or two man party (where one person is a character and the other a GM controlled NPC who the player controls during combat) could definitely make for an interesting campaign - and if you get more players you just have your guy (or woman) join up with them - i.e. you have been on your own for weeks and go into town to find a LAV-25 and four 5th Division soldiers manning it who havent seen anyone else for weeks

For some time, I've wanted to try using v2 rules (Merc included) for an espionage game, perhaps in Krakow, perhaps in the Cold War. Spy games seem a natural for one player game.
