Tiny Horsies is a pen-and-paper RPG for parents and children that allows you to create horsie characters and live exciting adventures. You can be a Unicorn, a Pegasus, a Terra, or a Pegacorn. Wield magic, soar through the air, kick butt, charm others, talk to animals, or use a wide range of other talents in order to solve problems. Character creation is simple and even small children can create a character in a few minutes.
The system is easy to pick up and play. No need to memorize tons of rules and a little coaching is all that’s needed for small children to play and enjoy the game. The game encourages personal interaction, imagination, and story-telling.
The book includes an introduction to RPGs, a guide for the Game Director, character creation rules, explanation of mechanics, a magic section, a guide for the Game Master, and an adventure to get you started.
Note: The book is available in print through Amazon.com and CreateSpace.com and as a Watermarked PDF through DriveThruRPG
What readers are saying:
“My daughter was really excited about the game. She wanted to keep playing, and her enthusiasm was exactly what I was hoping from her first time playing a RPG. Now I need to design tomorrow night’s adventure!”
“Only one of my kids is playing a tiny horsie … One is playing a wolfie and the other is playing a sentient telekinetic floating manatee.”
“The oversize serif fonts are perfect for younger readers so as not to intimidate them but not so large as to distract or annoy older readers.”
“All of this (the book design elements), in combination with the clean layout, made the game an easy read for my 7-, 9-, and 11-year-old children the first time through.”
“For parents and kids alike new to roleplaying games, you get a small, easy-to-read book that contains all you need to quickly jump into the hobby of roleplaying, including a large number of tips for new players including a section for how to play online.
