I feel there's a pretty high probability that you've seen a movie where talking rodents, probably mice, go on an adventure or some some type of mystery or solve some type of huge problem. It's a rather ubiquitous genre. With Rodent Rangers, you don't have to just watch that happen on your TV screen. You can bring it to your tabletops and become the rodent you were always meant to be. The game is up on Kickstarter now.
From the campaign:
Do you have fond memories of watching cartoons about talking mice going on grand adventures right under the noses of oblivious humans? Have you ever wanted to join that tiny world and emulate your favorite mousey characters?
The Rodent Rangers RPG is your chance to do just that! In this family-friendly tabletop game, you and your friends or family take on the roles of mice (or other small critters) living in the modern human world. Your characters are field agents of an international organization of problem-solvers called the Rodent Rangers, and you'll be sent out on adventures to help those in need.
Rodent Rangers is set in the modern world, with mice (and other small critters) living right under the noses of oblivious humans. While humans continue under the delusion that theirs is the only civilization, mice live happily in the walls, basements and sewers of human cities, furnishing themselves with the scavenged scraps of the humans' materials and tech.
The organization known as the Rodent Rangers is headquartered in the basement of the American Red Cross building in Washington, D.C. From there, teams of agents with a variety of skill sets are sent all over the globe on missions to help others, whether by rescuing lost or stranded civilians, bringing supplies to disaster sites, recovering stolen relics, or unraveling mysteries.
Like most tabletop RPGs, Rodent Rangers is a game of collaborative storytelling in which players get to play the protagonists of the story, and roll dice to determine the outcomes of risky or uncertain actions. Your attributes and skills combine to determine a pool of dice to roll, and if enough dice roll a 4 or higher, then your action succeeds. With clever decisions, a bit of luck, and a lot of courage, your mice will overcome obstacles and save the day!
The campaign is up and running now. It's set to go for another 28 days.
