MAGICAL ADVENTURES!

Kids_on_Brooms_Publicity_10.png

Kids on Brooms is a collaborative role-playing game about taking on the life of a witch or wizard at a magical school you all attend that uses the “Powered by Kids on Bikes” system, first used in the award wininng Kids on Bikes. Written and created by celebrated game designers Jonathan Gilmour (Dead of WinterKids on Bikes), Doug Levandowski (Gothic Doctor, Kids on Bikes), & Spenser Starke (Icarus, Alice is Missing) with the evocative art of Heather Vaughan (Beneath Nexus, Kids on Bikes), Kids on Brooms is a rules-light storytelling system that takes you on magical adventures.

Kids on Bikes is NOT required to play Kids on Brooms.

The Adventures of Kids on Brooms take place in magical schools filled with mystery, danger, and fantastical things like: 

  • Wielding wands, riding brooms, brewing potions, and casting powerful spells
  • Facing down mythical beasts and searching for school secrets

  • Making sure you hand your homework in on time

Kids on Brooms takes characters to their own magical schools, in a fantasy world where anything and everything *could* happen.

Kids on Brooms is a 96 page, rules-light, narrative-first storytelling game using the "Powered by Kids on Bikes" system meaning that many players will feel right at home. Despite the added layers of fantasy this remains a game in which you can jump right into the action and start playing RIGHT NOW!

Using familiar stats like GRIT, CHARM, FIGHT, FLIGHT, BRAINS and BRAWN, you’ll jump into the action. Each skill is represented by a polyhedral die based on your character’s competence. More sides = better chance of success.

That being said, even low stats always have a chance of success, as any max result EXPLODES leading to an additional re-roll contributing to the results. Lower sided dice mean bigger chances of explosions!

I just bought this a few days back, and it is my first few steps into the Kids on XYZ RPG system. I like it. There are some topics in which the author gets pretty heavy-handed, and the comments by the other purchasers are valid. But it looks like a fairly rules-light system, and leverages the players fairly heavily as part of the story-telling team (instead of relying heavily on the GM). I was in the market for something that could do a "Harry Potter" type RPG, and I think that this does it well enough.

It blows my mind that after two other books that they could still not bother themselves with better examples of the rules, and more of them. It’s annoying to have to keep rereading Sections to figure what they are talking about, and how it’s supposed to be used in play (take character advancement for example). I find the lack of newbie friendly writing annoying and pretentious. The basics of the rules seem easy, but the details seem to be poorly explained.

This game could use fillable character sheets and class schedules, especially for online play. Also, a DM screen or a cheat sheet would be great. There are so many charts, I am constantly flipping back and forth in the book.

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.
