Dagger: A Toolkit for Fantasy Gaming with Kids


Dagger for Kids is a simple, fast and fantastic tool for classic gaming with Kids!  

By Jimm Johnson with Haldo Bramwise

DAGGER is a simple, fast and fantastic tool for fantasy gaming. DAGGER is designed to introduce kids 5 years and over to classic-style fantasy role-playing. It is compatible or easily adaptable to most traditional fantasy role-playing game systems. It is played with one adult acting as the Referee and from 2 to 10 kids playing the parts of adventuring heroes.

Dagger for Kids uses  common, core mechanics found in most old-school fantasy role-playing games. However, these core mechanics are reduced to only the most basic elements necessary for play. This effectively simplifies the game so that players as young as 5 years can easily grasp the basic concepts. The rules presented here are supplementary (i.e. they are not all-encompassing) and it is assumed that the Referee already possesses a general knowledge of some form of classic fantasy role-playing. Any aspect of play not covered in these rules should be handled by the Referee, “filling in the gaps” as necessary with his own rulings, or rules from another classic fantasy system. This is a practice that is expected and encouraged. 

Here is a Dad telling about using the game with his kids.

I want to find more adventures to use for the kids. I am not to great at Making things up as we go. Where might I find more that fit this rule system?

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.
