Vitacernis - New Risograph Edition + PDF

In the center of a peaceful grove of the forest lies a large, perennially red-leafed maple: The Vitacernis. A mouse community thrives in the treetops of the surrounding grove, its citizens friendly if a little eccentric. They revere the grand tree and believe that the sacred red sap it produces has divine curative powers.

When the red sap stops flowing and the Viscount's son falls ill, brave mice are secretly sent inside the tree to find any sap that remains. Inside they find the ruins of an ancient settlement tangled in its roots, meet a rat necromancer and the results of his experiments, and learn the secrets of the mysterious maple and its life-giving sap.

The Vitacernis is an 8x5" 20-page risograph-printed zine for the Mausritter RPG containing:

  • Ruby Grove - A mouse settlement with 16 locations and 20+ NPCs to meet
  • 4 major NPCs with backgrounds, behaviors, and open-ended plot hooks
  • An adventure that sees the PCs delving inside the tree, uncovering ancient ruins, meeting its new inhabitants, and discovering the strange tree’s origins
  • A 14 entry bestiary, 2 new spells and conditions, and a 40+ entry treasure table containing some treasure unique to the setting
  • A separate cut-out item sheet containing the new conditions, spells, and a selection of 11 detailed items
  • A set of tools for GMs to integrate Ruby Grove and The Vitacernis into an existing campaign including: a table of both local and hexcrawl-level rumors, a table of location/NPC features to easily plug in alternates from an existing campaign, and aftermath prompts to guide what happens in the world following the adventure

    If you request an item to be returned (excluding damaged or incorrect items) then you will be responsible for the return shipping fee. 


    Only orders that contain items that are in stock at the time of ordering will be combined, when possible. 


    Essentially it is the same as above. We adore all of you and strive to give you the best possible customer experience possible but inventory tracking not only for us but for our vendors and partners makes this almost impossible to do now. 


    Pre-order dates are subject to change. We get as frustrated as you do when things come up but this happens from time to time. Sometimes circumstances beyond our control will create delays. We try to communicate via social media and our weekly newsletter to keep everyone as up to date as possible. 

    All items in an order containing pre-orders will ship with the pre-order item once it is in stock. If you would like the other items earlier, please place a seperate order from the one containing the pre-order. 

    We cannot combine pre-orders with existing orders nor combine new orders with existing pre-orders. 

    Pre-orders will be exempt from any type of general sale.
