Last night we held the inaugral Junior D&D night, six under 9's doing a simple dungeon hack, break down the door - kill the monster - steal the treasure. I think it is fair to say that the boys enjoyed it more than the girls, but, the boys are all a little older than the girls so that a difference.
Anyway, our brave heroes went out to investigate a ruined castle where Goblin raiders were thought to be hiding out, they got in, killed everything and stole all the treasure, result ! On the rules side, the children seemed to be coping quite well, although with the general level of chaos going on around the table it was difficult to tell at times.
The adult section will be resuming D&D soon, with a slightly modified 3e game. I had to admit to the group last night that I seem to have lost/thrown out the folder that contained all my notes on the game world, but not to worry, we'll just make it up as we go along again.
