Mouse Guard 2nd Ed. Actual Play Series – 1d4Con 2017 Playtest

This was recorded right before 1d4Con 2017. This is the Playtest of the Scenario James ran at the convention. He recruited David and Marian to play and Marian brought Derek along with her.

**Note** – Mouse Guard is a front heavy system in terms of mechanical crunchiness. This games was a learning exercise and it not played 100% correctly according to the book.

The recorded game itself has a running time of about 2 hours and 30 minutes after the long pauses had been removed. Then we discuss things that we noticed or questioned about the game for about 15 minutes afterwards.

Here is the cast:

GM – James Winfield

Kenzie – David Havelka
Saxon – Marian McBrine
Lieam – Derek Guder

If you are following the Vampire V20 game, it is on hiatus until after the major convention season. It should start back up in September or October. In the meantime, we are planning to release a couple of other one-shot APs of various systems until then.
