Choose Your Own Mouse-Venture

One of the most appealing qualities of the Mouse Guard comic is the level of detail author David Petersen gives his medieval mouse society. The lush and intricate world of the Guard is a perfect setting for adventuring, and a board game and RPG are already in the works. Petersen recently posted one of his sketching exercises for different playable mice characters on his website - each one of these little guys is packed with character, and seeing them all together in one page is a bit overwhelming. After the jump I've picked out a select few, in an attempt to guess which caste they might fit into...

Fashion Forward Mouse

Emperor's Royal Guard Mouse

Rice Paddy Mouse
