Description Edit | History

Game description from the publisher:

In Mice and Mystics players take on the roles of those still loyal to the king – but to escape the clutches of Vanestra, they have been turned into mice! Play as cunning field mice who must race through a castle now twenty times larger than before. The castle would be a dangerous place with Vanestra's minions in control, but now countless other terrors also await heroes who are but the size of figs. Play as nimble Prince Collin and fence your way past your foes, or try Nez Bellows, the burly smith. Confound your foes as the wizened old mouse Maginos, or protect your companions as Tilda, the castle's former healer. Every player will have a vital role in the quest to warn the king, and it will take careful planning to find Vanestra's weakness and defeat her.

Mice and Mystics is a cooperative adventure game in which the players work together to save an imperiled kingdom. They will face countless adversaries such as rats, cockroaches, and spiders, and of course the greatest of all horrors: the castle's housecat, Brodie. Mice and Mystics is a boldly innovative game that thrusts players into an ever-changing, interactive environment, and features a rich storyline that the players help create as they play the game. The Cheese System allows players to hoard the crumbs of precious cheese they find on their journey, and use it to bolster their mice with grandiose new abilities and overcome seemingly insurmountable odds.

Mice and Mystics will provide any group of friends with an unforgettable adventure they will be talking about for years to come – assuming they can all squeak by...

7 Malcom und Melphina (German)
This is the current Version (V2) of Malcom and Melphina - in German language. Comments and critique are still very welcome! Malcom ist ein junger Pirat - so weit nichts Außergewöhnliches. Aber er bringt seinen eigenen HAUSDRACHEN mit - Melphina! (Das Wortspiel funktioniert auf Deutsch einfach besser...) Im .pdf findest Du alles, was Du benötigst, um Malcom und seine treue Drachin in Deinen Abenteuern zu verwenden. (Malcom passt großartig in eine Maus und Mystik-Gruppe, die das verlorene Kapitel "Ghost of Andon castle" gespielt hat; Ich stelle mir vor, dass die Mäuse ihn vom dortigen Piratenschiff befreit haben) Melphinas Bild hat DeviantArt user CharReed gezeichnet, Malcoms Bild kommt von DeviantArt user drosera-sundews. Beide haben ihr Einverständnis gegeben, dass ich...

34 Christmas of Skeezix - A Fan "Advent"ure
Cos v4 (Storybook: Introduction, Prologue, Chapter 1, Chapter 2, Chapter 3, Chapter 4, Chapter 5, and Credit + Print files) (Note: as a result of time lack, playtesting and formatting of the newest stuff is not as good as the other parts) (Note: As Chapter 5 is very long, we recommend splitting the session up in two if nessecary) Christmas is about family, and family is a good excuse to play games. I hope that with this fan expansion families can gather around the table, just enjoying a small adventure. As this is an advent calendar, each chapter is intended for a certain date: Chapter one is intended for the 1st Sunday of advent. Chapter two is intended for the 2nd Sunday of advent. Chapter three is intended for the 3rd Sunday of advent. Chapter four is intended for the 4th Sunday...
