This is an adventure for Mausritter that uses the tension-fueled mechanics from the Breathless system by Fari RPGs. The system has been modified to work within Mausritter and the result makes this a unique and exciting adventure.

The notorious wētā gang, the Night Creepers, has raided Scarecrow Stand! Residents are fleeing and the players find themselves quickly ushered into the underground mole tunnels to escort the mayor to safety. A group of wētā are in hot pursuit and players must protect the mayor at all costs.

Unfortunately, the maps of the mole tunnels have been lost and no one knows the way out. Players must find their way through and escort the mayor to safety on the other side. If they stop for too long the wētā will catch up to them and they will be overrun. The wētā are merciless and will not be lenient. Will players find their way through and escape in time? Or will they become victims of the violent wētā?

How can you use this?

Underground Escape is set in the Kiwi Acres campaign setting for Mausritter and works best when used in that context in hex #1 on the map. You can alternatively use this as a one-shot adventure in your own games or plug it into an existing campaign.

The adventure includes:

  • Convenient home printing options in two pamphlet formats: A5 or tri-fold
  • Unique mechanics for a fast-paced adventure
  • Interesting encounters and complications
  • 16 new conditions
  • An NPC to escort through the adventure
  • Integration with the wider world of the Kiwi Acres hexcrawl

A note for the GM:

As Underground Escape takes place in the Kiwi Acres hexcrawl, it references some items, creatures and tables that are available as part of the Kiwi Acres package. If you are not using Kiwi Acres, the standard Mausritter tables should suffice. Creature details are also included in the freely available New Zealand Bestiary.
