Continuing the discussion from Shameless self-promotion (RPG department):
With anthropomorphised animals mentioned in a sentence with the word “classics”, my mind would have run to Aesop’s Fables. But I don’t suppose that sort of thing is roleplayable: too short and punchy.
I wonder whether such matter as Richard Jefferies’ Wood Magic, Kenneth Graham’s The Wind in the Willows, and Rudyard Kipling’s Thy Servant, A Dog are roleplaying possibilities — the first and last of those probably don’t qualify as “furries”.
Are animals other than furries roleplayable? One time a few years ago I had an idea for an RP solo adventure [link removed] in which the PC was to be the Labrador assistance dog of a murder victim, but I could never figure it out satisfactorily or find a keen player.
Has anyone experience of playing Bunnies & Burrows or Mouse Guard that they would like to report on?
