##Turn
When requested, mouse on turn rolls 1d6s (up to 3 times) and may call action for every roll higher than 1 (and equal or higher than previous roll on this turn). Othrewise its turn ends. 
While calling action related to its division, mouse can re-roll a die and apply second result.

###Battle
Mouse and target roll a die and substract from result a point for every trouble they suffer.
Loser gets new trouble set by GM (even already owned).

Mouse throws a dice less for every trouble it suffers from. If mouse doesn't have a die to throw with, it cannot continue its mission and has to rest.

Author Comments (if any)

Although this game is strongly inspired by Mouse Guard (by theme), it comes with its own push-your-luck dice mechanics and easy to understand system of troubles. That make For the Colony an ideal introductory system for children or people untouched by roleplaying games. Save your friends! Work together! Get the cheese! For the Colony!
