Or one kid goblin who was being accidentally left behind during a winter pilgrimage. Home alone DF sounds like fun.

That is awesome! Of course, you'd have to stack the deck a little. "Goblin-kin are as diverse as dwarves, elves, humans, and other adventurer races – an individual could have almost any trait!" Kevin the Goblin would surely have less ST, more IQ, Magic Resistance (an important part of Plot Armor in fantasy), and Ridiculous Luck, plus epic Stealth and a good Traps skill. Big bonus if he can defeat the party non-lethally.

Also important for Kevin is a great Scrounging skill and apparently a very busy house to loot and pillage, or Gizmo + Serendipity to keep finding exactly what he needs.
Also Fearlessness, Callous, and possibly Bully (seriously, he does some cruel stuff).

Hmmm. Ka-Vahn of the Mad-at-all-stars clan vs. two human intruders...

Great adventure idea!

I think you actually want to make the lone kid a Hell Gnome, though. "Clever makers of locks, traps, and Evil Runes for dungeons" – right there in the book.

And then you get to call the adventure "Gnome Alone".

You must.

(So. What issue of Pyramid will we see it in? : )

(Speaking of Pyramid: Has its monthly themes ever included "Humor" – nonsensical adventures, jokey magic items, IOU content, etc.? Is that something anyone would want, or would it cause a mass exodus of readers? [Me, I'd like it, but I have no standards.])
