RPG (Role Playing Game) Club

This semester we will explore the world of Mouse Guard.

 Mouse Guard RPG is based on the Mouse Guard comic books by David Petersen – he co-authored the game. You don’t need to know the comics to play; you simply need to be able to imagine life as a mouse. Imagine how monstrous a raccoon must be when frogs are twice your size. Imagine hiding under a maple leaf. Imagine two inches of snow covering your furry little body. Imagine the natural world rendered bigger, more wondrous, more dangerous. So grab your weapons, fluff up your fur, tweak your whiskers, and tap into your anxieties about owls, weasels, and raccoons. You’re about to undertake great and perilous deeds for the sake of all mousekind

~it’s not what you fight, it’s what you fight for.
