Although I've really enjoyed 2nd edition in the few games I've played, several of my friends in my core gaming group do not. This is due to concerns about balance (which is unjustified, imo), play style (too much pressure to race to victory), and the speed of progression compared to 1E. Valid concerns, but ones I don't share. I want to play this damn game!
Over the next couple of days I'm going to try running a solo game with the actions of the overlord determined algorithmically on a per quest basis. Interruption OL cards will be modified, and the top cards of the deck (number undetermined) will be played automatically.
I'm letting you all know about this as I go through, because there are bound to be imbalanced algorithms I make, or better ways to go about doing things. There will also be problems that arise. Comments and suggestions (or your own attempts to run though this) could make it better. Eventually we might be able to make an entire single player unofficial rule book!
Let me know if you're interested. First blood starts tomorrow!
