So im new to rpgs, ive played like one or two, but that's mostly it. Unfortunately, I don't know of any other people who like to role play, so im looking for a solitaire/solo rpg to play. Heres some things I want: (BTW i know im being incredibly specific, it doesn't have to have all these, this is just what im looking for)
-Is a fantasy setting, or can be.
-Can be played solo
-Allows me to control multiple characters (Like a group)
-Has random content in it, or is capable of using it
-And has few rules
Ok, just let me know if you can think of anything close to what I want. The only thing ive ever found after many google searches is the Mythic rpg gm emulator. However, the book is pretty long, and im attempting to just wrap my head around it after the third readthrough. Thanks so much!

Any of the Dungeons and Dragons board games series.

Dungeons & Dragons: The Legend of Drizzt Board Game
Dungeons & Dragons: Castle Ravenloft Board Game
Dungeons & Dragons: Wrath of Ashardalon Board Game

I have Drizzt and enjoy playing it solo with 2 characters.

Runebound (Second Edition) has everything you are after and more. There are tons of expansions that allow you to customize the game and keep it from getting stale.

If you can do PnP, you might like the revisioning of Citadel of Blood by Todd Sanders, which meets your requirements spot on. And if you don't, then eBay (and there are a couple in the marketplace) is your friend.

This, though sadly the base game and many of the expansions are getting harder to find.

There are a bunch in the market place and I just got into the game less than two months ago and have managed to find everything that had been released.

Pathfinder Adventure Card Game: Rise of the Runelords – Base Set

I'm probably missing something, as it hasn't already been suggested... Perhaps others don't consider it a role playing game, but I find it fits.

Do you actually want a boardgame, or an RPG? The fact you mention Mythic suggests an RPG....

However if you want a boardgame, check out Mice and Mystics - it's far better than the D&D series of games.

If you want an actual RPG then you're better off heading to RPGgeek

Ancient Odysseys: Treasure Awaits! would probably work, you can get the PDF pretty cheap.

Has a solo dungeon to run through, plus a book on creating random dungeons. Very light on rules, though it's primarily a dungeon crawl. Might be what you need to start with though.

Mythic isn't all that hard, you can use it with any RPG system. In fact it tends to work better with rules light systems, so maybe try that afterwards as a step up.

Another option is of course Tunnels & Trolls. I'm not sure about random creation, although that would probably be fairly easy to do, but there are a ton of solo adventures you can play, and they are generally pretty cheap.

Similarly, Bean! The D2 RPG (Second Edition) might work for you.
