Michtim is a tumultuous adventure of small, furry heroes struggling against the depredations of humanity. The Michtims live in a giant tree kingdom, hidden in the Immergrummelwoods by the magical powers of the Veil. The Veil is powered by the folk rites of humanity, like putting a saucer of milk outside for the fae. But humanity's belief is dwindling, substituted by greed and callousness. Michtims cannot tolerate this, and will go to lengths to sabotage animal factories and intervene with the long-legs' plans to raze the woods, just to build another shopping center.
Michtims have an elaborate culture, centered around three noble houses. Each of those houses has different values, called Virtues. While Haus Barsik promotes Conservancy, Haus Grauling seeks Civilisation and its trappings, and Haus Turnaya follows Charity to craft a strong society.
Michtim heroes are a diverse lot. Their Personality has a direct influence on their abilities. Angry Michtims are fierce fighters, while caring heroes are healing their gang members. These basic abilities are further enhanced by twelve Callings; magical or technical archetypes that refine the core game mechancis. Sorcerers can sacrifice dice to affect targets at range, while Cooks can set aside dice to create food power-ups. Best of all, every Calling works with every combination of Personality traits.
The game features unique and novel rules that are both easy to remember (and part of the character sheet as well), but offers tactical depth to those that are willing to combine Callings, utilize Gear and develop personal Ultimate maneuvers.
Designer's Note: The setting also takes a strong stance on the notion of equality. Whether you're female, male or intersex; whatever type of love you might live, Michtim culture is a happy place without sexism, racism, trans- or homophobia.
