Playing D&D with your kids is getting easier & easier! Hooray! Jeff & Sarah Moore just played with their 3&5 yr old coolest kiddos last week using RPGkids from Newbie DM, Enrique Bertran newbiedm.com. I was hanging out with Sarah Moore gamerchickshow.com and the kids this week during spring break and she showed me campaign.
It's pretty awesome. Way better than Heroes of Hesiod (Sorry WOTC!) It's a full adventure with hand drawn color tokens. I really like Enrique's artwork it's comic booky snd D&D all rolled together. Very cool. Tokens are what caught my eye as they were sitting on Sarah's dining room table still. They look a lot like Jared Von Hinman's work headinjurytheater.com, a supercool artist we met at Gencon with Shelly Mazzanoble. last year (there I have offically dropped all my geek connections in one article – classy)
So I am about to download RPG kids and try it out with Shane, like I said it looks great. Indigo & Jensen Moore had a great time playing. It is geared for the younger kids rather than 6 and up like the WOTC kids campaign we tried last year. I must say I am a little disappointed in Wizards slow uptake on the kids RPG front. This is not a difficult task. Why are they not trying just a little harder? I want to support them because D&D is my main RPG, but until they put out something quality like RPGkids (thank you Newbie DM) I'm going to have to support other folks in their endeavors.
P.S. As long as GENCON gives us the space for an event...we'll be having a forum/panel for 2nd Generation gamers & Newbie DM interested in hanging out with us for said event! Cool huh?!?
