I'm working on a supplement for Strixhaven where the players take the roles of counselors at a magical summer camp. I wanted to list some potential tie-ins to other products, specifically where child NPCs from other published scenarios could be introduced as campers. I'm aware of a few somewhat notable young NPCs from published products (such as the Cassalanter Twins and the Urchins from Waterdeep: Dragon Heist, or Arabelle and the Martikov sons from Curse of Strahd), but I'd like to list as many tie-ins to published products as possible.

Can anyone add any significant child NPCs (roughly 8-14 years old, or the approximate racial equivalent) from published D&D 5e adventures?

I'd need to limit it to titles that can be referenced in DMs Guild products, which limits it to the Forgotten Realms, Ravenloft, Eberron, Ravnica, Theros, and Arcavios (Strixhaven).

    \$\begingroup\$ Given that elves age physically at the same speed as humans but aren't considered adults until age 100, I think there's some room for comedic misunderstandings of "children's summer camp". \$\endgroup\$ Jun 8, 2022 at 19:45
