Marmosets & Meerkats


Mammal 50: Meerkat Manners

Mammal 50: Meerkat Manners

<<First     <Previous

A lookout is important whenever you spend time camped in the wilderness. Someone needs to keep watch to make sure the group isn't ambushed by enemies or monsters. Usually a character with high perception skills is a sensible choice. But this can be rendered moot by finding a good vantage point - so make sure to take full advantage of anything suitable in the area.

In the real world of the Marmosets & Meerkats universe, of course, David Attenborough's The Life of Mammals doesn't exist. That's the premise of this entire comic, after all. But most of the other things we know and love (such as the eternal struggle for existence) do, albeit modified by the lack of The Life of Mammals:


GM: Dawn on the African savannah. A group of meerkats ventures out warily to greet the day.
Meerkat 2: Great. We're going to get attacked by eagles again. Or jackals.
Meerkat 1: We'll post a lookout.
Meerkat 5: Who?
Meerkat 6: It doesn't matter who. We're meerkats. We're all specialised as scouts.
Meerkat 4: Okay, simples. No need to compare the meerkats.
GM: And so these small carnivorous mammals go about the business of protecting themselves from danger.
Meerkat 3: Right, I need some better elevation.
David Attenborough: Oy! Get off!
Meerkat 3: Hey, if you're going to insert yourself as a GMPC, you can at least make yourself useful.
