  • [Realms of Pugmire] Squeaks in the Deep

    Public playtests for Squeaks in the Deep – book about mices, rats and dungeons – have started. On Onyx Path Twitch, Eddy is running test adventure, in week or two it should be on as YouTube video. EDIT: Playtest is here on Youtube now!

    In few weeks there should be Kickstater for the supplement. Here is what we know about Squeaks book from Twitch:
    • Squeaks in the Deep will be crossover supplement, like Pirates of Pugmire was. You still will need Pugmire or Monarchies of Mau corebook to use it.
    • There are 6 new Callings – 3 for Mice, 3 for Rats.
    • Rodents – mice and rats – have PSIONIC POWERS! 😮 They cover them before cats and dogs, but can use them.
    • When Rodent use psionic power, it’s comes with Tell – weird thing happening around it - glowy eyes, fur standing on end, an odd scent or breeze, etc.
    • Many Rodents become scientists, working for Cult of Labo Tor. However, Labo Torists are not liked in Rodents culture – they are like Frankenstine Doctor to normal scientists of academia, that rest of Rodents are. Also, Rodents are typical as small crafts masters, like seamstress.
    • Rodents have Whisper, instead of Bond or Mystery, for dogs and cats, respectively.
    • Rodents are MAXIMUM the size of Chihuahua or Pomeranians - that is, they are 'Halflings' and 'Dwarves' of Realms of Pugmire. 😉
    • In rodent culture, "shiny" actually means knowledge, due to the writings of Man describing the smartest people as "brilliant” or "illuminated". Getting “shiny” may got you Fortune points.
    • Rodents create ‘migration communities’ in other races kingdoms, like Chinatowns in USA.
    • Next Squeaks playtest adventure will be on Onyx Path Con in June.

      Sorry, but that's inaccurate. Mice are on average about the size of a small dog. Rats are on average a little shorter than the average cat (such as on the cover of Monarchies of Mau). So, there can be dogs (and even cats) smaller than rats. Sorry for the confusion!

        Whole lotta new information on Squeaks in the Deep from Pathcast about book!!! ❤🐭❤ ( Link here - https://www.podbean.com/media/share/pb-nh9ri-1022430 )
        • Inside Extended info about Cult of Labo Tor!
        New Callings

        Mouse

        • Psychics – Psionic focused, but more emotional side, more healing - and body horror
        • Rascals – Very cavalry, Three Musketeers-like, more charming than sneaks. Based on Reepicheep from Chronicles of Narnia. Very Sea Hawk from She-Ra.
        • Tricksters – Traditional rouge mouses. But more witty,
        Rats

        • Analysts – Scientific, very into psionics. Very Entrapta from She-Ra.
        • Strategists – Cunning tacticians. Schemers and plotters. D&D analogue are Warlords.
        • Ruffians – More brawler like rats.
        Backgrounds

        • You CANNOT take Noble Background – as there are no any Rodent Nobles. ( Side note: Rodents society is very socialist, on general. 😉 There can be 9 Rat Kings at the same time – but no Nobles. 😛 )
        • Deep Dwellers – You live literally under Monarchies or Pugmire.
        • Field Rodents – Living in ‘wild’.
        • Refugees – Fled to Monarchies of Pugmire from against violence. Often disillusioned.
        Underneath

        • Underground 'kingdom', analogue to Underdark, but in Realms of Pugmire. Made from network of tunnels and caves stretching out from Pugmire, through Fearful Forest, up to ends of Monarchies. In Monarchies of Mau book there is mentioned about Korat training ground underground, for example. On general, cats and dogs are more likely to go across Fearful Frost than by Underneath, just because it’s so dangerous, unreliable and wild.
        • Underneath shape and layout is constantly chaging ( It’s Eddy’s take on MegaDungeons ) Some changes are cause Rodents are building or rebuilding. Part is cause monsters are building and rebuilding. And part is the walls are changing on their own – no one knows why.
        • Dungeon Set Pieces – for this book are prepared mini-dungeons with prepared maps for specific theme you can put where you want them, to the Underneath’s ‘MegaDungeon’ Examples: Cult of Labo Tor hideout, cave with couple of encounters, Rodents villages.
        • Between Set Pieces are Tunnels creating Underneath – and they have specific written Tunnels Encounters, that can be Random from tables, any you can put as you like. And between them are villages in Underneath.
        • Enemies – Book is showing new monsters to Realms of Pugmire world that are genuine creepy.
        • Cinematic Actions – Characters can change environment, exterior, setting, just to add variety to dungeons.
        • 4 Adventures – 3 smaller Adventures and 1 Bigger Adventure, with start in both Pugmire and Monarchies. 😎

          Again, that's inaccurate. What was said was that unlike Pirates of Pugmire which had three smaller adventures, Squeaks in the Deep will have one bigger adventure, along with lots of smaller encounters for Guides to mix and match. I highly encourage folks to check out the episode themselves to learn more!

                    Kickstarter is delayed because of problems with Kickstarter platform itself. We do not know how long...

                          So with Rodents in this book, are “Badgers” the only canonical uplifted species group not to get player character coverage?

                            From my information - yes, only 'Badgers' from canon are left then. However, we got rumors on ideas of devs team to make Bunnies or Bats in other books - so we clearly have more than enough material.


                            Myself, I would love to see whole one book on Unseen ( maybe with more Things from Age of Man ) and another one, solely dedicated to Fearful Forest ( and probably War of Cats and Dogs, as it was main theater of this War). Unseen is what makes Realms of Pugmire unique setting amongst of 'animal RPGs' - and Fearful Forest is one of central locations of setting, somehow always showing up in my campaigns, one way or another.
