New Adventure - Yuletide Journey

A new Christmas-themed Hero Kids adventure is now available:

The Yuletide Journey adventure takes place in the days before Rivenshore's annual midwinter Yuletide feast.   But the village has not heard from the festival's annual guest, Odin, who is the protector of the Brecken Vale.   The kids set out on a journey to Odin's home in the northern mountains, and along the way they meet new friends, overcome dangerous challenges, and face fearsome enemies.

•  Adventure with six encounters and two new maps
•  Includes two new elf heroes; Woodswalker and Druid
•  Includes a new monster, the Ettin Brute, as well as the Dire Wolf and Wolf

Playtesting Yuletide Journey with the kids

Just did a playtest of the new Christmas-themed Hero Kids adventure: Yuletide Journey.   Violet took two heroes through the adventure and Dash insisted on coming along. But he's way too young, and wandered off half way through before he did any real damage...

In keeping with the normal polytheistic and pagan setting of Hero Kids, this adventure presents kids with Christmas as a midwinter Yuletide festival, and Santa is taken back to his pagan roots as Odin (who delivers presents for kids who leave out food for Sleipnir, his eight-legged horse).

This adventure is relatively light on combat encounters (there are two), focusing more on role-playing and adventuring.   But it does include two new elf heroes (who will be part of the upcoming Hero Cards III expansion), two new pieces of equipment, and a new monster, the Ettin Brute.
