Danger lurks around every corner. Witches hide in the forest, waiting for children to stray from the path. Hyper-intelligent raccoons threaten to take over the planet. Children move to a new school where nobody wants to be their friend. The humans can't save themselves! They don't even notice the danger!

It's a good thing they have magical kitties.

How to Play

When your kitty tries to do something tricky or dangerous, you will be asked to make a check. Your game master (GM) will tell you which attribute—Cute, Cunning, or Fierce—is that one you will roll for. (Don't remember what the attributes do? Read Creating Your Kitty!) The number you have in that Attribute is the number of dice you start with. This is called your dice pool.  If your kitty is using a Talent, you can add an additional die to your dice pool. If your kitty is using a Magical Power, you can add two more dice to your dice pool, but you can only do this once per scene. You may also get a die for a success bonus, or lose a die for each injury you have. If your total dice in a pool is zero, you can't roll the dice.

The difficulty of the check ranges from 3 to 6. The higher the number, the tougher the check. 

Once you have all of your dice and know the difficulty, it's time to roll your dice. Roll them all at once. Each die that gets a number equal to or higher than the difficulty counts as a success. If you rolled no successes, your kitty fails at the task. If it at least one die was a success, your kitty Succeeds. The more successes you roll, the better your kitty does!

Making your kitty is like making up a character in a story. You decide what he or she looks like, what they like to do or don't like to do, and their personality. Part of creating your kitty is also assigning certain numbers used in the game's rules.

First you have to decide on your kitty's name. This could be a name their human uses, or another name that magical kitties call them, or both.  Then decide what your kitty looks like. Think about different colors and cat breeds.


This is really three different school buildings on one campus, including an elementary, junior high, and high school. Most of the kids in River City attend school here from the time they enter kindergarten until they graduate. The exceptions are those who live on the far side of the river, who go to Lawnwood Elementary before coming to Meadowlands Junior High. This creates cliques among the junior high and high school students. And cliques have a way of aggravating the problems kids have at school.

Preeti is a highly intelligent and knowledgeable woman. She is well-read and well-informed on a wide range of subjects. She's also a bit absent-minded, as her mind is always racing ahead to the next thing. Her colleagues and patrons of the library often comment that her thoughts seem to be going faster than her words, leading her to have moments of hesitation or short silences when she's trying to express herself. However, once she starts talking about her favorite subjects, her knowledge and passion are evident. She's a dedicated professional, who takes her role as head librarian very seriously and is determined to make the library a vital and important resource for the community. She has a warm and welcoming smile that makes people feel at ease, and it breaks her heart to see a sad person in her library.

The triceratops is one of the most well-known dinosaurs, with a large bony frill or cover and three horns: one over each eye, and another right above the nose. These horns are used for both defense and just for showing off, like the antlers of modern animals.
