Mouse Guard is an RPG which is based on a comic book series of the same name. The game focuses on a patrol of guard mice who's job it is to defend the territories, keep the peace and deliver mail. The game has novel mechanics and solves some key problems of RPGs, or rather it embraces behavior that some think of as dysfunctional.
We discuss with the designer Luke Crane his design process and design goals. Most of the discussion focuses many game elements (mechanical and advice) that Mouse Guard has, but other games lack.
