A RPG “for younger people”? Yes, but not only…

Mouse Guard Roleplaying Game is a roleplaying game for 10 years old and more (for “mild violence”). I had the opportunity to have a good look at the book (a volume of roughly 20.6 x 20.6 x 2.8 cm), and the first thing to say is that the author does not take people for fools. A system that is not too complex, a very detailed universe, several visions of roleplaying games (tales like in Petites Sorcières as Dril explained, rpg like for older people, …), everything you need to prepare a campaign, …

I find the idea of a multi public game very appealing. If a majority of roleplaying gamers I know were born with or not long befor the rpg, a generation is now comming that saw / sees dad and mum playing, who wants to do the same soon, but for whom discovering Lovecraft, Moorcock or such authors is still a bit early…

Here is the Editor’s pitch

Join the Mouse Guard and defend the Mouse Territories against predators and dangers, in this roleplaying game for the Mouse Guard comic book series! The game is intended for all ages and levels of game-playing experience by award-winning game designer Luke Crane and is based on a simplified version of his Burning Wheel rules system (also used for the Origins Award winning RPG of 2007, Burning Empires).

Includes art and extensive background material on the Mouse Territories specially prepared by Mouse Guard creator David Petersen.
