Remember my kid-friendly character sheets I was working on a while ago? Tonight the boy and I played a quick adventure I whipped up and it worked great. His post-game report to mom:
"Mom, Pathfinder is awesome but it’s also tiring."
He played a ninja Rogue named Bombs and journeyed with me, a wizard named Snakebite. He was really good at investigating footprints and exploring streams and rivers looking for clues to who stole the farmer’s turkeys (nasty kobolds did it, zomg!).
Fun side effect: the game sneaks in math all the time too so it was kinda like getting him to do homework without him knowing.
First father/son nerdfest gaming session complete/successful!
