In Mail Mouse you play a mouse who has given up their trade to become a courier delivering packages to settlements. You're not a brave knight, you're just a postman (or a very low ranked guard), but there's still much danger in delivering a parcel.

The setting of Mail Mouse is anthropomorphic medieval mice. I usually run games as if they're occurring in the Mouse Guard universe - but as well as the guard there's also a postal service. It's a bit like a cute and furry version of the videogame Death Stranding.

Mail Mouse was designed for play-by-post, so the rules and structure are geared towards episodic play with a focus on narrative as opposed to tactics.

These rules are currently in development, hence they're exceptionally brief. Post a comment or visit the Discord if you would like any clarification.

Rules Branching

Version 1.9 simplifies the rules a lot, removing a lot of features that didn't impact play or proved a chore for play by post. I haven't fully tested these changes so I'm leaving both 1.7 and 1.9 available. But I recommend 1.9 as it's a much simpler game to play.
