The Mouse Guard world clearly has ducks, but the RPG doesn't include them. What stats should a Duck have in Mouse Guard?

Dave Petersen has illustrated mice interacting with ducks in Mouse Guard. Heck, Kenzie's character sheet even has the “Duck-wise” skill. Yet there is no mention of ducks in the “Denizens of the Mouse Territories” chapter.

I hope we don't have to wait for the Water Fowl splatbook to know the answer to:

  • What is the rating for Duck Nature?
  • What are the aspects of Duck Nature?
  • What weapons, if any, do Ducks have?

To tide our group over until there's an official answer, I've used:

  • Duck Nature: 6 (Flying, Eating Stuff, Swimming)
  • Duck Weapons: none

Eff official, that looks great to me. – Judd Sep 4 '10 at 19:27
Works for me. Looks about right. – aramis Sep 4 '10 at 21:12
Think you should tick your own answer here. – Iain M Norman Sep 5 '10 at 14:21

Your own answer looks fine, though you might give them a beak weapon, depending on what you were using them for. Luke didn't include any rules for mice riding animals in the RPG, even the rabbits they're shown riding at the end of the Winter chapter, partially because those comics hadn't come out yet when the RPG was published.

Since the Goose doesn't have a beak weapon, I don't think the Duck gets one :-) – bignose Sep 5 '10 at 23:39
