Playtesting Darkness Neath Rivenshore

Thanks everyone for your feedback around the idea of having a somewhat 'mature' ending for the next Hero Kids adventure: Darkness Neath Rivenshore.

Based on your feedback, I've included the option of having alternate 'rescue' or 'ghost' paths through the adventure:

"This Hero Kids adventure includes two possible endings, one for younger kids, and another for more mature players:
•  Emon is rescued and reunited with his parents
•  Emon is a ghost who died in the well long ago

In the ‘rescue’ ending, the heroes find Emon hiding in the final room, and reunite him with his parents.  In the ‘ghost’ ending, the heroes find Emon’s bones, and take them to the cemetery to bury alongside his family."

In other news; Violet, Dash and I have been playtesting the adventure, and everything's looking great!  Stay tuned!

Adventures with Challenging Themes?

Hero Kids people. Help me out. I've been writing a new Hero Kids adventure, where the heroes rescue another child who's trapped down a well.

However, I had a quandary last night: I'm not sure that all parents will be cool with the story tilt at the end of the adventure. Basically, the child is revealed to be a ghost who died in the well hundreds of years ago, and in the end the heroes lay the ghost to rest and reunite it with its parents.

What do you all think?

What do you think of this kind of content for Hero Kids?

Should I switch it to a straightforward rescue mission?
