Guided Approach to Intermediate and Advanced Coding + ICD-10-CM/PCs Coding uWow just Wow This is probably the best written RPG I ve come across Everything about this book is just amazing The mechanics are interesting but don t get in the way of game play The setting isnlike anything I ve played before either The artwork pacing and layout of the book are eually *GREAT AND MAKE JUST READING THE BOOK A PLEASURE * and make just reading the book a pleasure can t wait to start playing itIt also Makes Me Really Want To Read The Comic Books Upon me really want to read the comic books Understanding Yandere Lovers upon the RPG is based I m starting to really get into the different characters presented in the book and want to know about their world I really enjoyed the Mouse Guard comics and was so looking forward to reading the RPG book thinking that perhaps it was something I could try in my gaming group I have played many RPGs but I have never tried the Burning Wheel system which Mouse Guard is supposed to be a light version of and I found the system to beite intriguing While I won t go into depth about the system there are many reviews available from several sources on the web I did like the concept as a story telling system with a lot of emphasis on hitting the main key moments of an adventuremission and not dealing with the filler that happens in between I think this system will do great to help both the GM and players create a fabulous story but is dependent on having a group of participants that want to and enjoy role playing and contributing to a story otherwise it will just become a series of dice rolls for checks which is all some players want and won t do any justice to the system and the potential it seems to have I m still a little nsure about the implementation of the split GMlayer turns and I think this will be a hurdle for
Most GMs And Players GMs and players of how traditional RPGs are structured but I do think that with some practice it could prove to be a rewarding experience Hopefully I ll be able to try this out in the future as a break for my Dark Heresy campaign to see how it goes If you like fantasy role playing games it s hard to go wrong with Luke Crane s Burning Wheel system and Mouse Guard presents the system in it s most refined version yet Above and beyond the fact you get to play kick ass mice struggling to survive against the elements weasels and each other the game is based on David Petersen s most excellent graphic novels of the same name this is a truly niue and engaging rules system where the player s get to contribute nearly as much to the story as the Game Master the mechanics are simple yet comprehensive and the character creation process is nearly a game in itselfFor those seeking other Burning Wheel products check out wwwburningwheelcom where you can get the scoop on the entire line of Burning Wheel Fantasy RPG products as well as Burning Empires the award winning space opera game set in Christopher Moeller s Iron Empires graphic novels setting If I was a fan of the comic I ve never seen it I might give this five stars I didn t really buy this rpg for the game world I bought it because I had read that it was a simple introduction Luke Crane s game design He has rabid fans and many people consider his Burning Wheel game the best roleplaying game ever designed Mouse Guard is a simpler version of the Burning Wheel systemSo as long as I was at Guardian Games shelling out the big bucks to get on the waiting list for Space Hulk I picked Brothers up a copy of Mouse GuardWow I can see what makes people crazy for this The mechanics of the game demand real roleplaying on the part of the players They encourage things likesing your character s trait such as Fearless against yourself As in I m so fearless I m going to race across the raging river not even trying to keep myself from being swept away Which gives you a bigger chance of being swept away And that s a good thing in this game You get rewarded for making things harder on yourself by playing true to your character s persona To really stand things on their head the Games Master GM only runs the adventure for the first have of the game session Then he turns it over to the Player Characters PCs who get to drive the story repair the damage done to them by the GM pick fights and finish player goals they didn t complete during the GM s turn.

The times you The Little Bit Naughty Book of Wild Sex Positions used your own personality traits to hurt yourself during the GM turn the things you get to do in the Player s TurnYou also get rewarded for roleplaying your characters core beliefs and instincts Cool stuffThere is a lot of player involvement in the action and story telling This is as a far cry from a game focused only on combat minmaxing as I ve ever seen in playable gameMouse Guard won t be for everyone If you want hard and fast non negotiable rules to test yourself against this is not your game Often table discussion is reuired Does everyone agree that my mouse sse of fearless really can harm my chances of crossing the river safelyIf games like Nobilis are based on GM Fiat Mouse Guard has a lot of Group Fiat The GM can lay the law down now and again but for the most part everyone gets a sayOh and you re a mouse Not everyone will like that I read a bunch of the Redwall books when my son was a lad and it reminds me of that world You are a tiny mouse not a man sized mouse Tree roots are big obstacles Owls are ten times your size You grab your sword and defend the mouse territories It s not what you fight It s *What You Fight For * you fight for I need to explain why I gave this book 4 stars instead of 5 Really I want to rate it 45 but that s not an option I love the Mouse Guard Leaders Eat Last universe and I love the art of the comics but this book is about the Roleplaying game so that s what I m rating here As for the book itself if you can find a copy of the the physical version I highly recommend picking itp it s very high La muralla verde uality and the art in it is beautiful If not the PDF version isite nice as wellThe Mouse Guard RPG is actually based The New Competition upon the Burning Wheel system which I h An elaborate elegantly constructed game I m not the target audience for this as I haven t played tabletop roleplaying games since I was in high school but I enjoyed the Mouse Guard comics and had heard enough about thenderlying gaming system to be intriguedIt fits together well showing a strong defined sense of what it considers gaming should be Dice and rolls factor in but the primary impetus here seems to be playing to character the rules even go so far to encourage you to sabotage yourself to stay in character Frankly it was a little overwhelming although it would probably *become clear through play I rarely had a good sens Luke Crane s *clear through play I rarely had a good sens Luke Crane s is a brilliant contribution to the art of role playing that nonetheless manages to not feel like a completely worthwhile game Perhaps I need someone to run this for me but my initial impression is that it reads far better than it plays and that any GM that plays it will improvise with the rules and largely ignore a vast amount of the text that tells you how to play the game Indeed this is a rules light engine that probably doesn t need nearly as much text telling you how to play as it has but I can only assume that the abundance of how to play advice was based either on the assumption that the players would be rather young and new to role playing games or else the author s assumption that he had to Domestic Slavery Considered as a Scriptural Institution by Francis Wayland and Richard Fuller unlearn the habits of any experienced player to play his gameI suppose the later might be true but I m left very skeptical that following the guidelines exactly as written even results in the game that the rules describe much less that it results in a good game or the best way tose the rules I tend to be very skeptical of rules that look like they were written in their entirety and sprung whole and ard from the forehead of their designer rather than rules that look like they evolved through play over several iterations into a final form that had been tested by fire and honed by experience These rules look
very much like they were written before they were play tested andmuch like they were written before they were play tested and if ever actually testedIf you are familiar with Luke Crane s designs there will be a lot that is familiar here There is a character burner for creating characters that seems to have no interest in balance There is a Mini Habits for Weight Loss: Stop Dieting. Form New Habits. Change Your Lifestyle Without Suffering. unusual and perhapsnnecessary tactical step of playing out moves blindly during combat and a lot of finicky modifiers that seem out of place in a rules light narrative focused system Exactly how much interest this step really adds E Master takes on the roles of the weather animals and the wilderness all trying to thwart the fearless mice Designed by Origins Award winning game designer Luke Crane for beginners and veterans alike the game comes complete with three sample patrols. M not sure but it seems rather less interesting and well balanced than rock paper scissors defending yourself has an absolute trump but attacking the enemy does not have a trump etc and most characters will have little choice how they should or ought to play to play optimally because of the way stats work And the blind sets mean that there is little in the way of planning because
You Can T React To Anything He S Alsocan t react to anything He s also a of low myth GMing and spontaneous improvised play which I find be Children of the New World uestionable advice at best Is improvised theater really likely to be better than one which has a script In the same fashion is entirely improvised RPing really better than play which has some degree of structure Player agency is great and all but without real sweat placed into a setting players are likely to find they have all the agency of someone in rowboat in an empty ocean you can go anywhere you want but there is no where to go I would love to be able to get by with less prep and I think there is value in giving the players freedom to explore their own narratives but even that involves labor to really facilitateAll those complaints aside the fact that Crane is looking at the bones of an RPG in entirely new ways and thinking about them in entirely new ways is a great service to the community I mnconvinced that Crane makes great games or even that he runs great games but I need no convincing that knowledge of and exposure to these new ideas is of great aid to any GM regardless of the system or setting that they are running I highly recommend every GM that takes their craft seriously read this book and perhaps give the rules a spin for a few hours with a set of players that likes low melodrama and theatrical play The illustrations are pretty and it does a good job detailing the world and system Some aspects of the system are very good it seems built toward collaborative storytelling and allowing the players to have a big say in the direction the game goes I would have likely rated it higher if it didn t seem to assume a great deal of familiarity with the Mouse Guard comics Granted that s their primary audience but the examples given aren t as accessible to those who have only a passing familiarity with the comics themselves so it might be hard to get players to read it and give it a try A streamlined version of Luke Crane s Burning Wheel RPG in the setting of David Petersen s Mouse Guard comics I only ran one session of it so far but I like it compared to DD the game I played immediately prior Mouse Guard is structured much less focused on combat interactive and above all character driven I hope to play of it soonPerhaps the book s greatest weakness is that it does not always succeed at communicating how the game is to be played Certain key pieces of advice the No Weasels rule the suggestion that the GM specify what skills to The Oswald Reflection use in overcoming obstacles are easy to misinterpret and I was only able to make sense of them after spending some time reading comments on the publishers forums Part of the difficulty here is that Mouse Guard is a game that s meant to be played in a particular wayite different from a traditional RPGInstead of saying anything let me link to two reviews I agree with one by game designer Dan Maruschak and one at shutupandsitdowncom David Peterson s art of course makes this an attractive product but the text inside is surprisingly eye opening as well A lot of RPG fans talk about how they d like roleplaying to be central to their games but can never find a way to make system mechanics actually encourage it Luke Crane has bridged that gap and MG is a much less daunting and focused introduction to his style gaming than the multi volume Burning Wheel books The only potential problem with this product is the setting itself Mice with swords is cute and all and surprisingly well suited to gaming but the number of people who are apt to want to play it longterm or at all is probably relatively small The rules are so well integrated into the setting however that porting it to any other gameworld would be something of a job And Burning Wheel is ndeniably complicatedSoMouse Guard Excellent rules fun setting but limited.
