Adventure is for ALL Ages!
Little Feet is a collection of adventure books for children ages 6-12 and their parents. Each book is composed of three chapters, and each chapter can be run in one or two hours of playing time. This way, play sessions can be run on weeknights between dinner and bed time as well as weekends. It is our hope that Little Feet Adventures will help parents introduce family-friendly, role-playing games to their children with fascinating stories, fun characters, and convenient, play sessions.
Each Little Feet Adventure book is 32 pages of G-rated content, and is beautifully illustrated in full color.
In Little Feet Adventures, the players portray one of the smaller races. Children can play dwarves, gnomes, or halflings. They may also choose from Little Feet original races like the ratatosk who are squirrel people with a penchant for telling tall tales, or the shape-changing, racoon folk, called the tanuki. Their characters will belong to Little Feet, Inc, a group that includes caravan guards, magic-users, and other lovable rogues who work for those who need help in exchange for favors.
The merchant guild from Anchor's Home has called upon Little Feet, Inc. to investigate an unusual set of burglaries. A few businesses have suffered recent thefts which occurred under mysterious circumstances.
Although the items stolen were not very valuable, even the loss of petty baubles has merchants concerned that this may be the beginning of something much bigger. Due to some loose-tongued employees, the incidents have been leaked to the public and the people have nicknamed the criminal, 'Gimcrack Jack'.
Much to the chagrin of the merchants, Gimcrack Jack has become a reoccurring character in a local children's show hosted by the renowned puppet master, Delgar Ashforged. This crafty gnome has taken advantage of the recent publicity from the thefts and turned Gimcrack Jack into a bumbling buffoon who couldn't tell a diamond from a jagged piece of glass.
Gimcrack Jack's fame keeps growing not because of the petty crimes, but because he's the new, favorite marionette among the many Delgar Ashforged has in stock. The puppeteer's patrons are enjoying the show, but how long will it take the real criminal to seek vengeance against Delgar for making them look like a fool, and which merchant will Gimcrack Jack victimize next?
