Urchins of Shadelport

Found this pic looking for Trump. Next book i'm working on will be a relaxing best of my d100 NPC tables. So a few on my to do list sitting around a while. Faerie book will be next public release in about 2 weeks ish.

So more adulting this week and a cthulhu game on monday.
A bunch of posts on my to do list but anything goes this month.
Possibly some mutants and beastmen (beastmen are more work)
Both mutants and beastmen could get a book.
Possibly do a post on my homebrew character rules up to the class bit shortly too

Iv'e done a few evil kid tables before but this more of a needy street orphan table. I've started players as orphans several games even did a character funnel of all urchins so could be used sometime.
Most are between 7 and 12 6+d6 years old.
All are parentless and wild, living in squats.
All fear the city child catchers who sell them to sweatshops or prettiest ones to orphanages
