Hero Kids Role-Playing Game

Hero Kids is a role-playing game like Dungeons & Dragons, but the rules have been simplified and the violence has been toned down for children ages 6+.

It has a simple combat and adventuring system which avoids the complex math of full-blown systems. The combat and adventuring mechanics in Hero Kids are based on six-sided dice, so you don’t need to find any unusual dice to play!

We meet on the 2nd Saturday of every month at 10am.
