  • Re: RPGs for children, I recently listened to an interview on Geekerati with Francis Hogan, creator of Adventure Maximus! He mentioned that he did a lot of research to figure out the types of characters and adventures children actually enjoyed playing as opposed to what people generally think they want to play. (For instance, he noticed that kids either like to play the biggest thing they can play, like a minotaur or “rock guy,” or the smallest, like a pixie that can fly.)
