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.


Candies, chocolates, and sweets of all varieties fill the gleaming glass jars that line the walls of Macavity's. Spigots drop a selection into the plastic containers kids collect as they come in the door. Displays of larger confections—some of them more art than food—cover kid-height tables throughout the store. The owner Godfrey Macavity himself is a great lover of cats, and usually has a kitty treat or two for any who stop by the store.

Beep-Bop is an albino squirrel. He's got his little white ears in every nut-hole and his pale paws in every shady bit of business in the city. He can be a pretty nervous fellow, but he's been practicing martial arts drills and that seems to be settling him down a bit. He's a gifted translator of several human languages, and he can be a very valuable resource for magical kitties who are looking for information.

The players' kitties aren't the only ones with Magical Powers. Usually magical kitties help each other, but sometimes they conflict when the needs of their humans are at odds. This magical kitty's human is a witch up to no good, but the loyal kitty is determined to help anyway.
