I'm playing through a campaign game in which I play solo, but instead of using the provided bots, I use a system I sometimes apply in other games.

I "play" each of the two nonplayer sides every time they get a chance to act. I choose one card (or one particular play) and designate that Choice 1. I then pick a different card for Choice 2, and a third card for Choice 3.

Then I roll a die. On a 1-3, I implement Choice 1. On a 4-5, I implement Choice 2. On a 6, I implement Choice 3. This gives me a chance to play the nonplayer as best as I can while still leaving room for the system to surprise me. The "Choice 3" is intended as a wild idea--something unlikely to happen. Choice 2 is reasonable but not what I would consider primary.

I'll let y'all know if it works well.
