Askin for suggestion: the simplest medieval fantasy rpg system for childre Anonymous 17/04/11(Tue)01:37 No. 120704

As per title.
I wanted to introduce a group of 6 to 8 yo kids to classic medieval fantasy rpg, but I need a system that is very, very rule-light.
Pathfinder Beginner Box is already far over the top, I'd like something that gives them a minimum of customization and just requires them to add simple bonuses to their rolls.
Any suggestion?
And of course, if anyone knows of any system that is not only rule-light, but specifically designed for children, that would be even better.

From what I can see (don't have time to check thoroughly, atm), Hero Kids is closer to my personal tastes.
It isn't free like First Fable, though.
Any idea if Hero Kids was ever shared in the (now buried) request thread? Got any link to it?

The BESM game Big Ears, Small Mouse, its Tristat and pretty straightforward.

Also, Faery's Tale Deluxe. Again, only 3 character stats, but different system than BESM.

Honestly, I've found that children 10 and under seem to enjoy making a story up as much as any other part of an rpg. This makes Storycubes a serious contender as an intro to roleplaying of any type.

Admittedly, from about the age of 10 or 11, depending on the child, the rules and numbers can become quite enjoyable. At least they did for me.

Hero Kids is fantastic, Ive got little ones and Im an elemetary school teacher, its absolutely appropriate for kids in the age range your asking about. But dont pirate it, its a small indie made game, the creator has awesome customer service attitude and you even get a half off coupon for a POD version. Obviously not a critic of copping free files and all. But not from decent small scale creators that already sell an inexpensive product thats by far a solid value for the money.

Dungeon Squad. 2 pages of rules and free.

All Outta Bubblegum or Honey Heist could work, both are simple systems. I have run Honey Heist and it can easily be modified for almost any thing.

Golden Sky Stories:
Kickstarter delivered long ago, now on sale on drivethrurpg.
Original peculiar system, focused on story rather than XPs, looks pretty cute and is made mainly for children. Never played it, but looks like it could fit OP's needs.
