Mouse Guard Year 1: Summer

Hail all those who are able. Any mouse can, any mouse will, but the Guard will prevail.

Heroes fall, heroes break, heroes bleed.
They shed bitter tears, pull themselves up, not to concede.
Often are they waylaid and frequent they mourn.
Heroes are rarely made and even more seldom born.
Not till after they die, do mice sing of their tale.
A job, a duty, a thankless obligation not to fail.
Still many a mouse think only the name is required.
What becomes of them? They either quit or expired.

- A Heroes' Warning, by the Scribe Roibin

Two patrols of mice venture forth to guard the territories in year 1148. They are the Mouse Guard, heroes in name and deed. Were it not for the guard, mouse society could never exist. Under our brave paws, we will keep everymouse safe, from all manner of harm. No matter what.
