Squeaks in the Deep RPG Sourcebook Up On Kickstarter

Up on the surface, you might think that mice and rats are just mere pests. But deep underground, we enter their realm where we're the ones that are the pests. That's what you'll explore in Squeaks in the Deep, a new sourcebook for Pugmire and Monarchies of Mau that's up on Kickstarter now.

From the campaign:

Rats and mice live in the margins of the empires of dogs and cats, with homes that connect to the Underneath — a vast collection of warrens, tunnels, caves, and other hidden places. It is a dangerous place full of unexplained phenomena and terrifying creatures. But it is also full of wonders of ages past and the thrill of discovery. For the rodents believe Man was part of something called Science, a way to learn power through study, observation, and experimentation. Perhaps through the exploration of the Underneath, they can rediscover what Man has left behind. It’s time to listen to the squeaks in the deep.


Squeaks in the Deep is a chronicle sourcebook for both Pugmire and Monarchies of Mau. It’s usable with either game, or as part of a joint experience. Some highlights include:

  • Two new species for players to portray: rats and mice
  • Six new rodent callings
  • Psionic rules
  • Information on the Underneath, as well as a variety of new enemies
  • “Confluence of Cults,” an adventure featuring the Underneath with both Pugmire and Monarchies starting points

Squeaks in the Deep offers a new, bold canvas for your Pugmire and Monarchies of Mau games: the Underneath. This vast world of natural caverns, abandoned tunnels, and forgotten facilities offer enticing adventures to draw in heroes of all kinds. The Underneath holds treasures long lost by Man. It also holds unusual creatures with evolved intelligence like dogs and cats, but who changed in unexpected ways. For all the ways the surface world tried to reclaim what Man left behind, the Underneath twists and turns away from the expected for those who map the depths.

The campaign's up and over its funding goal with 29 days left to go.
