Harvesters is hot off the press and ready to go - this is a great way to try rpgs with your children.

Begin an epic journey in the rugged boots of the most unlikely heroes. Enter the world of the Harvesters where badgers, rabbits, squirrels, and otters launch into adventures of epic wonder. Here the smallest of creatures take on the roles of the greatest heroes: knights, druids, clerics, rogues, wizards, and fighters. Together they tackle the greatest of adventures, from rescuing the princess to find a lost treasure. Harvesters is a game for the child in all of us!

Harvesters is a role playing game designed for play by the whole family. Using the wildly popular and easy to use Castles & Crusades® Siege Engine, players choose any one of the listed animals to play, in any of the classes provided, and with them begin a long journey of adventure. Designed for children ages 6 and up, Harvesters is the perfect game to bring everyone together. Children delight in taking on the roles of their favorite animals and parents find the role of Castle Keeper easy and fun!

The adventure begins in the sleepy little town of Wheat Hollow where magic and mischief are always afoot. Old Farmer Thiseltdown’s farm has been burgled by something and whatever it is haunts the environs of Wheat Hollow. Plunge into the wilderness to face down the villains who alone are bringing terror to the goodly creatures of Wheat Hollow

Harvesters provides all the rules you’ll need to get started, it comes complete with 8 full color maps, and a Cover by Jim Holloway (dice are sold separately).

Harvesters is its own game (based on Castles & Crusades and the Siege Engine), or you could combine this with regular Castles & Crusades (or even Myths & Monserts he, he, he) to play a a campaign in its own right - along the lines of the Chronicles of Narnia.
