Heavy Metal Thunder Mouse
by Jeff P. [Verified Purchaser] Date Added: 06/13/2019 22:13:49

Getcher mota runnin' (LOUD GUITAR) Head out on da highway (LOUD GUITAR) Lookin for adventcha (LOUD GUITAR) 'N whateva comes my way-ay-ay....

Yes, this is a review for Heavy Metal Thunder Mouse, the roleplaying game where you play a mouse biker in a mouse gang and do mouse motorcycle stuff. And it's BRILLIANT!!! Picture "The Mouse and the Motorcycle" meets "Sons of Anarchy" and you're really, really close to understanding what this game is about.

The game itself uses lightly modified Fate rules. It's completely self-contained, though, so you don't need a copy of Fate Core or any other gaming books. All you need is the Heavy Metal Thunder Mouse rule book and you're set to play.

Fate does use specialized dice: six-siders with two blank sides, two '+' sides, and two '-' sides. You can approximate this with normal six-siders where a 1-2 = blank, a 3-4 = '+.' and a 5-6 = '-,' or some such convention, but honestly, it's a lot more fun using Fate dice, which are inexpensive and available at most game shops.

This would be an excellent game for beginning roleplayers, especially beginning roleplayers of the adolescent or pre-teen variety. Nothing in the game setting is so inherently adult that it couldn't be run 'as is' for just about any group of bright kids.

On the other hand, the idea of mice biker gangs carousing, being up to no good, getting into brawls, and running from the law is also delicious enough to keep even the crustiest and most jaded grognards in your gaming group entertained.

BORN TO BE MI-I-I-I-ICE.... BORN TO BE MIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIICE....

Racing along at a breakneck pace to reach the rumble or outpace the cat thats hot on your tail is a thrill thats well covered in this amazing world book. If you have ever loved shows like the Rescue Rangers or just want something less intense (thou not nessacerily) than Sons of Anarchy then this is the book for you and a worthy addition to any FATE library.
