The cover of Michtim RPG shows several Michtims.

Cute Heroes with Special Powers

Michtims are easily mistaken for hamsters at first glance, yet they have access to magic, technology and nature's allies. They are in constant struggle with human's plans to take down their sacred Immergrummel woods. Nevertheless, they also know how to have a good time, because bakery festivals are an important part of their culture.

Easy to Learn / Fun to Tinker with

The core rules are taught in steps. The game is playable with just the basic rules (that are also reproduced on the character sheet for your convenience). If the Michtims grow experienced enough, the game master will introduce Callings and Gear to offer more complexity. Players are able to create new material, based on the existing framework or change the fiction aspect of established content.

Personality as Core Mechanic

Michtims are very emotional. Their abilities are directly based on five emotions. Anger is used to attack foes, while Love allows the Michtim to tend the wounds of friends. Joy provides mobility and perception, while Fear is used to hide or evade attacks. Grief, on the other hand, allows the Michtim to weep to reduce incoming damage.

A Blend of Magic, Tech and Nature

Michtims rely on these three things. There are several magical Callings that provide for spellcasting in the fiction, like the Sorcerer or Witch. Technology is also a viable path to power for Machinists and Cybertooths. All Michtims have the ability to speak with animals, so Nature is a strong ally to all Michtims. Players can take any Calling and change its meaning in the fiction, by providing new themes for existing mechanics.

100% Indie / 100% Inclusive

The art, game design, graphic design and writing were all created by Georg Mir, and are thus guided by a single vision: to create a game that will be a welcoming place to all kinds of people, no matter their gender, sexual orientation or ethnic background.

Premium Color Hardcover

The game is available as premium color hardcover from DriveThruRPG/RPGNow. The paper is of high quality and quite robust, and the colors are very rich. The game is tightly packed with content, while being slim enough to carry it around with ease. If you buy the hardcover book, you will receive the PDF for free, so you can instantly check out the game while waiting for the delivery.

Dedicated Gaming Materials

The game offers dedicated gaming materials that provide helpful rule information to all players. The character sheet has all the basic actions on it, while the Calling rules are provided in a card-based format, so players will only need to keep their relevant rules. As added benefit this means you can freely check out most of the game rules by downloading these free products from the store.

The inner layout of Michtim has a lot of whitespace.

The MachinistMichtim 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.Apollonia Stahlfaust

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.

You can also use the Flash Preview to look inside the book, from cover to back! Hope you like what you see. 

Be sure to check out the Character Sheet too! It has all the basic action rules on it, for ease of reference. You will find a free copy of the Calling Cards too. These will come in handy once you acquire your first Callings (like Frostpaw, Witch or Bard), because they offer all the rules on small cheat cards.

Format

Scanned image
These products were created by scanning an original printed edition. Most older books are in scanned image format because original digital layout files never existed or were no longer available from the publisher.

For PDF download editions, each page has been run through Optical Character Recognition (OCR) software to attempt to decipher the printed text. The result of this OCR process is placed invisibly behind the picture of each scanned page, to allow for text searching. However, any text in a given book set on a graphical background or in handwritten fonts would most likely not be picked up by the OCR software, and is therefore not searchable. Also, a few larger books may be resampled to fit into the system, and may not have this searchable text background.

For printed books, we have performed high-resolution scans of an original hardcopy of the book. We essentially digitally re-master the book. Unfortunately, the resulting quality of these books is not as high. It's the problem of making a copy of a copy. The text is fine for reading, but illustration work starts to run dark, pixellating and/or losing shades of grey. Moiré patterns may develop in photos. We mark clearly which print titles come from scanned image books so that you can make an informed purchase decision about the quality of what you will receive.
Original electronic format
These ebooks were created from the original electronic layout files, and therefore are fully text searchable. Also, their file size tends to be smaller than scanned image books. Most newer books are in the original electronic format. Both download and print editions of such books should be high quality.
