“In recent months, the once-peaceful town of Summerford and its surrounding farms have had to deal with fierce monsters, greedy bandits, and other unsavory intruders. There is more work than the local adventurers can manage, so it falls to the next generation of heroes to pick up the slack.

Many feel these whippersnappers aren’t yet ready for the life of an adventurer, but they’re brave and resourceful, and they have been trained well by their parents. Besides, there is nobody else—the guards have other problems to deal with, chasing rumors of an evil villain hiding somewhere in town, and the rest of the townsfolk are far too timid to visit dragons or talk to ogres.

You are young adventurers, trained by your parents in the skills of the trade, yet still children in the eyes of most. But your town needs you, and you are determined to make your parents proud!”

Tales of the Little Adventurers is a kid-friendly standalone scenario for the Tricube Tales system and is usable as a micro-setting, but it is also a fully self-contained one-page RPG in its own right. You can print it on a single sheet of paper: The first page includes everything you need to play, while an optional second page expands the adventure generator with examples and twistsThe PDF uses layers for ease of printing.

If you'd like to learn more about the evil villain the guards of Summerford are investigating, check out Horrible Henchmen!

Is there any benefit for having a concept?

Looks like it only prevents from losing dice when attempting something out of their area of comfort but otherwise, a fighter and a bard fight more or less the same.

You lose a die for challenges that fall completely outside the scope of your concept. This wouldn't generally apply to regular combat, as that's a pretty essential ability for adventurers in a fantasy setting. But for example, if the bard wanted to use a ballista on the town walls to drive away a dragon, I'd probably say they'd lose a die, as bards don't usually learn how to operate siege weapons. Likewise, if the warrior wanted to embolden the townsfolk with a rousing ballad, I might say they lose a die.

Fair answer.

Just asking because if introducing someone totally new to Ttrpg the what can and what can't the characters do easily might feel a bit alien. I tried to make a short list of class capacities but realised I was overthinking the concept.

Very cool little game, though.

Thanks, I'm glad you like it!

I think it's best not to overthink the concepts, it's really just a broad umbrella that replaces the need for individual skills. It's intended for situations where the GM can confidently say "Your character is no good at this sort of challenge" -- a heavily armored knight sneaking past a sentry? A druid trying to pick a lock? A barbarian attempting to translate an arcane text? In most situations the players won't lose a die, it's really just for special cases where you (as the GM) feel the player is attempting something completely outside their character's capabilities.

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.
