Children's Crusade

Watermarked PDF
Suggested Price $0.99

As many stories and movies tell us, the solving of mysteries, foiling of evil plots, or rescuing of the abducted is much too serious of a matter to be left up to adults. And they wouldn't believe you anyway, so it’s up to you and your chums to go out and make things right.

This game is intended for players of any experience – from novices to experienced.  The game-mastering portion is especially light and more suited to an experienced game-runner. 

The game is built out for low-level play, and includes a mini-adventure, although any appropriately scaled low-level adventure can be used.

I think you could really give Hero Kids, a well-done system in its own right, a real run for its money with Children's Crusade. Do you have plans to expand to other genres? During the Golden Age of comics. several street-level heroes were 9-12-year-old kids. Most wore masks, but some didn't.

Sorry I never responded to this - I don't get notifications of reviews/comments. The comparison to Hero Kids is appreciated - I understand it's a great ruleset.
I originally wrote this as a '200 word RPG' entry and then rounded it out as a 'complete' ruleset (for whatever that's worth). As to moving to other genres, I hadn't originally considered it, but I could see easily porting it to a Dickensian scenario, or even out to cyberpunk or post-apoc street gangs and waifs... Something to consider, thanks!

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.
