    A Ballerdino Halloweeno (Guilds & Goblins #3)

    A Ballerdino Halloweeno (Guilds & Goblins #3)

    The Whatventurers (thanks Sam E. for the name suggestions) are back to save their friends from a strange song that seems to be luring them into the mist!

    Lessons include: failure can be part of the fun, especially when you’re playing a game with friends; taking time to feel sad can be very healing, and get you ready to feel happy and/or goofy again before you know it.

    What if ballerinas met with dinosaurs? (Guilds & Goblins #2)

    Zachimedes, Lowlandra, and Scullen Bones are back, trying to free their people from the accursed Trumpet of Travel. But when an enchanted caterwaul draws the players into a spooky mist, they’re going to need all their wits to survive! May the dice be with them!

    Lessons include: playing the blame game can often distract your from the real problem; it’s okay to give friends and family a little space when they’re processing big feelings.
