    I'll join the Apiarist bandwagon. It still sounds like a lot of fun.

    I say they where Archivists. His father kept the record of the town. His older brother now has to do pick up the family tradition because his younger brother is in the watch and unavailable.

    Smith, because it's the only trade which involves hitting things with hammers. Hopefully it will give a bonus to hitting people with hammers. If it doesn't, I am disappoint.

    Why do the parents have to be so lame? Can't we have a warrior tradition in our household mousehold?

    Apiarists are not lame! For example, Neil Gaiman is an apiarist, and not lame. (It's his birthday).

    Apiarist is the most badass profession. Think of Bees not as bees, but Sugar Producing Attack Wolves.

    That attack in the Tens of thousands.

    I guess on a mouse-scale, beekeeping is more like farming flying honey-dogs with stingers. Do we get to control them?

    You could make a test to anger or placate them yes. You probarly won't run arround with a complete beehive straped to your back.

    But i guess Apiarist wins.

    (by the way. I think you can only come from a trademouse background because of balance reasons. Every MG character has a few craft skills and is able to produce equipment and other usefull things for the mission. This is a deliberate decision to encourage creativity and building stuff. The rules for crafting are also pretty good)


    Next STEP!

    With whom did you apprentice for the Guard? What was that mouse’s trade?

    "A young mouse seeking to join the Guard applies in either the spring or fall. They meet with a guardmouse in charge of new recruits and are welcomed into Lockhaven. These raw recruits are then distributed among the various tradesmice in Lockhaven to act as assistants, laborers and apprentices. For their first two seasons of service, they are apprenticed to these senior artisans. In this capacity, they help see to the material needs of the Guard."

    The list is the same as for parents

    Apiarist Carpenter Archivist Cartographer Armorer Glazier Baker Harvester Brewer Insectrist
    Miller Potter Smith Stonemason Weaver


    More bees? Maybe some background making armor or maps? Learning in the library in Lockhaven? Working on the insect training? Maybe getting fat, making bread?

    And now we must choose between them...or any of the others, I guess, but that doesn't really seem like the direction we're going in.

    I think I'll reserve judgement until one has a strong lead.

    Armorer, let's give this young mouse something that's actually militarily relevant so he's not constantly dependent on his insect minions.

    Cartographer it is. It's useful, it makes sense for a mouse with a good memory (which I still want to put forward), and it provides an excuse to be in a high place with attack-bees.

    Archivist. Always pick up the lore skills, no matter the system. More knowledge is always better in an RPG, even if it's burning San points.

    He spent years of his life as a smith, a trade to which he took quite well. His trade became lucrative for a handful of years before joining the guard.

    My RPG group is currently playing Mouse Guard. It's really fun, and super easy to DM.

    I vote we go on to the next step!

    Smith it is!

    Next step *cue dramatic music*

    What did your mentor stress in training?

    Basically after he spend two seasons as an aprentice a young Guardmouse becomes a Tenderpaw and is paired with a mentor for 1-2 years. The mentor is in charge of training the young mouse in the skills of the guard.
    We can choose twice from a list of the PATROL SKILLS (the skills most often rolled in the game). These are things that our mentor really did stress in our training.
    The list:

    Fighter
    Instructor
    Healer
    Pathfinder
    Hunter
    Scout
    Survivalist
    Weather Watcher


    Everyone should give an A vote and a B vote for the first and second choice.
    One thing can be voted for twice.
