You play a member of the Mouse Guard, a mouse in fact. You are a protector, a guide, a herald for danger, a paladin for all mouse kind, strong in will and swift in action. But the world is a terribly dangerous place for mice. Mouse Guard uses a light version of the Burning Wheel rules.
The food stores at Pebblestone were ruined by flooding and the people there are starving. A Guard Patrol was dispatched to guard the food on its way to Pebblestone but neither the food nor the Patrol made it there. Now it is in the thick of Winter and Gwendolyn has asked for volunteers for another Patrol to search out the other Patrol and to get the food to Pebblestone safely. The winds of Winter blow icy cold. Will you accept the challenge?
