Last Sunday I played an RPG for the first time with my son (5). We played Hero Kids by Hero Forge Games.
He was excited and had a lot of fun. We played with minimized rules (Hero Kids uses only some D6) and he was the only player.He chose the strong kid with the axe as a character and named him Axel the Brave, with me playing Axel’s friend, Magnus the Healer, as a NSC. Axel and Magnus went to search for a missing priest, descended into a damp cave, defeated the spiders there, solved the challenge of a bear ghost and finally saved the priest from some skeleton swordsmen and a dragon.
It took about 35 minutes of play and we had a lot of fun. Next Sunday there is again the time for adventures!
