You know, we’re all new at something at some point. And while you may have a natural talent for something, you’re still going to have to do a lot of learning to be able to become a master at any particular skill… particularly adventuring in a fantasy realm. That tends to take a lot of time and effort in the form of killing various monsters (who hasn’t had to clean out a local tavern’s basement of giant rats?). Well, I don’t know if there’s any basements full of giant rats in Trail of the Apprentice, but I do know that it’s up on Kickstarter now.
Trail of the Apprentice is a set of 5 linked adventures that were written with an eye towards the younger and less-experienced gamers in the room. They have a simplified stat block and easy-to-understand rules for both Pathfinder and 5th Edition that can help newer players feel their way through the game without throwing too much into their lap all at once.
The campaign has already passed its funding goal and is working toward stretch goals with still 22 days left to go.
