I've run a couple of open-ended homebrew mashup D&D-based games for my kids in past years, but we're all kind of hankering for something more contained and standard — planning on starting a new campaign with this baby next week and excited! pic.twitter.com/A5cw2EMqrS

be running this for just two PCs and likely an NPC or two as party members – anyone who’s run it have tips? higher start level? Check out the Sidekick rules in Tasha's Cauldron of Everything. Easy answer is give your PCs each an NPC animal pet that fights alongside them! A CR 1/2 wolf or something equivalent is perfect. (Maybe a bit odd for the city setting, but eyy it's fantasy)

I'm using a soldier (CR 1/2) and probably a spy (CR 1/2) using the sidekick rules for my 2-player game. We've had one session so far and it's gone well! The soldier will be a paladin type (Warrior with some heal-y substitutions) and the spy a Spellcaster (sorcerer-like).
