Posted on May 22, 2017 by Flames

Today, is pleased to host a special preview from Monarchies of Mau, an upcoming game published by Pugsteady and Onyx Path Publishing. Monarchies of Mau uses a customized version of the 5th Edition rules from the world’s most popular fantasy RPG. It’s been redesigned for streamlined play, with an emphasis on cooperation and action over competition and violence. Creating heroic and cunning cats is easy, and there are a variety of callings and noble houses that give focus to a cat’s role in society and in the adventuring party.

The Monarchies of Mau Kickstarter has already funded, and all backers will receive a copy of Monarchies of Mau Early Access. It’s a playable version of Monarchies of Mau that has over a third of the material you can expect in the final book.
