Verlad's Gauntlet - Hero Kids Solo/Co-Op One-Page Adventure


Instead of being GM, use this solo/co-op adventure to join as a hero with the kids. Like all the One-Page Adventures, this allows 1-3 heroes to explore a dungeon using Hero Kids combat rules with scripted monster turns. 

The Gauntlet is the final exam at Verlad's Training Academy. Whether his students come out KO'd or victorious, the old wizard calculates semester grades based on the gold they are carrying when it's over.

This One-Page Adventure is simplified so players can more easily learn the scripted monster activation rules. The main differences are:

  • Rooms, Monsters and Treasures for the 6 encounters are not random.
  • All stats for the goblins you’ll face will be found here, not in other Hero Kids books.
  • Heroes can’t flee before all Monsters are KO’d.
  • Heroes can’t return to previously cleared rooms.
  • Gold is a score keeping mechanism, so players can compare their progress from game to game.
A copy of the Hero Kids Fantasy RPG and knowledge of that game's combat rules is required to play.

Rule System(s)
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.
