I really enjoy this game, but the official solo variant is beat your high score, only, which is not the style I prefer.
So I've created a variant with 1-3 Bots, which is IMHO more challenging and more fun.
You can integrate the Bots also in a 2-3 player game.

Setup:
Setup as a normal 2 to 4 player game, with exception to the following steps (see Quick Reference on the back of the Rulebook).
- Step 2:
Bots won't get a Character Sheet
- Step 4:
Bots won't get a class card. Skip this step for the bots.
- Step 5:
Bots won't get an Alignment Card.
The Bots draws a Backstory card and a Player Aid Carsds (for scoring at the end), only.
The top colour of the Backstory card, is the Bots player colour.
Draw Backstory cards until each bot has a unique colour (unique to other bots as well to the players).
- Step 6: For the Bots: Put one tracking token on the Backstory card.

Play Sequence:
1. Roll:
If the current Start Player of the round is a bot, roll the dice and place them as usual on the Initiative cards in order.
If there are multiple dice with the same value, place them in order (top to bottom) of the Backstory card of the current Bot. Since yellow dice are not defined on the Backstory card, they are last in order.

2. Dice:
The Bots selects dice in order (top to bottom, yellows dice last) of their Backstory card, which will create a pair of that colour. If it is not possible to create a pair, just select the dice in order (top to bottom, yellows dice last) of their Backstory card. If there are multiple dice with the same colour, select the dice on the lowest Initiative card (see example below).
If the Bot take a yellow dice, it will receive 2 gold as normal.
The Bot takes the Initiative card, too and will take any gold on it, if available.

3. Market:
The Bot will pick a Market card in this order
- Traits
- Armor
- Skill or Weapons

If multiple cards of the same type are present, the bot will pick left most card.

4. Cleanup
No changes


Final Scoring:
Score for real players as normal plus each 8 gold each player has at the end of the game add one additional Reputation Star (like in the Solo Rules).
Score the Bots:
a) Add one Reputation Star for each pair of dice in each colour
b) Add one Reputation Star for each dice in their class colour (top most colour of the Backstory card)
c) Add Reputation Stars for the Backstory card. For each colour on the Backstory card, check if the Bot has at least one pair of dice. If so, it is a match for resolving the Reputation Stars on the Backstory card. A pair of yellow dice won't count.
d) Add one Reputation Star for each Reputation Star on a Trait card. Just count the Stars which are printed on the card.
e) Add Reputation Stars for Armor cards a normal, including extra bonus for their class colour (top most colour of the Backstory card).
f) Count all the remaining cards (Trait cards without a Reputation Star, Weapon cards and Skill card). Add Reputation Stars divided by two rounded down.
g) Add one Reputation Star for each 8 gold.


=======================
Example for picking a dice:
The Bot has the Backstory card "Brawler" with dice order green-red-blue-violet-black-white-(yellow).
The Bot already have 1 green, 2 red, 4 blue, 3 violet and 1 yellow dice selected.
On the Initiative cards are:
1-red 1
2-blue 3
3-yellow 3
4-violet 5
5-black 6

The bot checks if there are dice in colours present, for which it has odd numbers of dice selected. Here: green - violet - yellow
So it will take the violet dice to complete a pair of this colour.

=======================
Example of final scoring:
The Bot has the Backstory card "Brawler" with dice order green-red-blue-violet-black-white-(yellow).
The Bot has collected 3 green, 2 red, 4 blue, 3 violet, 1 black, 2 white and 3 yellow dice selected.
The Bot already has collected 15 gold.
The Bot has collected the following cards:
Trait cards:
Cunning - 1 Star
Dedicated - 2 Stars
Honest - 3 Stars
Focused - 2 Stars
Famous

Armor:
Mystic Cloak
Leather Gloves
Mystic Robes

Weapons:
Longsword
Longbow

Skills:
Negotiate
Concentrate

a) 7 Reputation Stars for Pairs: 1 green + 1 red + 2 blue + 1 violet + 0 black + 1 white + 1 yellow
b) 3 Reputation Stars for Class Colour Dice: 3 green
c) 3 Reputation Stars for the Backstory card: 1 green + 1 red + 1 blue + 1 violet + 0 black + 1 white = 5 matches
d) 8 Reputation Stars for Trait cards: Cunning - 1 Star, Dedicated - 2 Stars ,Honest - 3 Stars, Focused - 2 Stars
e) 5 Reputation Stars for Armor cards: 3 for Mystic Cloak and Mystic Robes + 1 for Green Class Dice + 1 for Leather Gloves
f) 2 Reputation Stars for remaining cards: Famous + Longsword + Longbow + Negotiate + Concentrate = 5 cards
g) 1 Reputation Star for gold: 15 gold
Total: 29 Reputation Stars
