[P]lay intelligent mice who are trained to be investigators/soldiers and get engaged in conspiracies and threats against mouse-kind, which you solve. The game is best expressed in one scene from the comic Mouse Guard where a huge snake threatens the Mouse Guards. One mouse expresses the sentiment that they can't beat this thing. Another says, "It's not what you fight. It's what you fight for." After that, they can beat the thing. Sacrifice will be necessary!
