I'm curious, in general what are the run-times for most of your encounters. I've started DMing for a group of kids that fluctuate players and am looking for encounters that can me easily finished within 2 hour time-frames. Would these work? I want the kids to feel like they've completed things at the end of the 2 hours and kids who miss a session don't feel totally lost.

The adventures generally take from 60-120 minutes, depending on the number of players. Certainly the shorter adventures (Basement O Rats, Escape From the Ghost Pirates, and The Wizard's Tower) will fit into your timeframe.

on page 11 the sentence "You rummage among his clothes and find a large bunch of keys." is printed twice. imho it should not be in the conclusion part?

I purchased the Ghost Pirate adventure, and the board set up asks for skeleton archers and pirates, but my PDF only came with the ships Captain, both versions of him.

Hi Michael,

The pirate monster cards and stand-ups are included in the core rules pack.

I came to ask this question. But I see it's been answered. I thought I had printed everything already for this adventure, but I guess not. Possibly update the pdf's referring to that? Or include them? That way it's easier for future users. Just a thought. Love the work you have done with the fantasy series so far.

Hi Leif,

The Escape from the Ghost Pirates adventure has this note at the start of the adventure:

"This adventure requires a copy of the Hero Kids RPG to play. The core game and this adventure include:
• Hero Cards for each player
• Monster Cards for the unique monsters in this adventure (ghost pirate captain) and the standard Hero Kids monsters (pirates and skeletons)"

I saw that, but just thought they would be included. No worries. I used some pirates from my boys toy collection. (kind of like the little green army men we played with when younger, but they were red). They enjoyed it greatly. And I said they were Ghosts not Skeletons. Every time they were KO'd, there belongings dropped to the floor and there body disappeared.

Original electronic
Scanned image
These products were created by scanning an original printed edition. Most older books are in scanned image format because original digital layout files never existed or were no longer available from the publisher.

For PDF download editions, each page has been run through Optical Character Recognition (OCR) software to attempt to decipher the printed text. The result of this OCR process is placed invisibly behind the picture of each scanned page, to allow for text searching. However, any text in a given book set on a graphical background or in handwritten fonts would most likely not be picked up by the OCR software, and is therefore not searchable. Also, a few larger books may be resampled to fit into the system, and may not have this searchable text background.

For printed books, we have performed high-resolution scans of an original hardcopy of the book. We essentially digitally re-master the book. Unfortunately, the resulting quality of these books is not as high. It's the problem of making a copy of a copy. The text is fine for reading, but illustration work starts to run dark, pixellating and/or losing shades of grey. Moiré patterns may develop in photos. We mark clearly which print titles come from scanned image books so that you can make an informed purchase decision about the quality of what you will receive.
Original electronic format
These ebooks were created from the original electronic layout files, and therefore are fully text searchable. Also, their file size tends to be smaller than scanned image books. Most newer books are in the original electronic format. Both download and print editions of such books should be high quality.
