    Friend of Rats

    So, human, you have betrayed your species, brought unspeakable agony upon those who loved and trusted you, and literally sold your grandma to a horde of chitterling little carnivorous maniacs? We are grateful. You will not be viciously bitten until nothing but gnawed bones and the wobbly bits remain. What else could a human possibly ask for

    A mention in the thanks section, the bigger the donation the bigger the thanks will be... literally.

    Raised by Rats

    You are a curious rat, aren’t you? Come sit by this nice rotting carcass and let me tell you about the adventures of my youth. It all started in a mountain made of garbage, ah, such glorious sights...

    Teach the Rats

    Remarkably, you have survived the whacking of whelphood and are now ready to embark on a great war of liberation. Your first mission is to teach ignorant rats the truth of Ee-Ee. You will do this by whacking them on the head with this book. It’s quite heavy, so try not to whack them too hard. It helps to tell them you’re not going to whack them, just a friendly suggestion.

    All previous perks plus a hardcopy of the Core Rulebook. Shipment might entail additional fees.

    Feed the Rats

    You’re ready to go forth and steal us something tasty. Just remember, everyone outside wants to kill you, so keep your eyes open. And take this screen. It will protect you... presumably. Back already? That’s not food, that’s a person’s head. No no, don’t run away, you’ve done very well, my young friend. We are very proud.

    All previous perks plus a BC screen. The BC Screen includes an epic rat party facing an epic foe on the player end and quick ref charts on the BC end.

    Fight for Rats

    We feel that your talents are wasted on foraging missions. It’s time you took a command position and led our pack into true victory, not just fine dining! Wait! Before you leave, you should probably take this. It’s a map of what the world is supposed to look like. What? You want a map of how the world really looks like? Don’t be absurd, the world is all wrong, why would we want to map that?

    All previous perks plus a full-color poster-sized map of the world of RATS!

    Treated by Rats

    So you lost several limbs fighting the great patriotic war. That’s no reason to get all morose and miserable, is it now? We sort of hoped that you would regrow your lost limbs (rats can do that, right?), but instead you grew tentacles, wings, vines and other strange things. Look, you have some foreign guests. They claim they are not here to vivisect you.

    All previous perks plus an exclusive hardcopy expansion booklet with additional mutations and enhancements.

    Scariest of Rats

    Wow, it seems we sort of over-healed you. You’re now one of the most twisted freaks our species has ever produced. Oh well, while you’re at it, you might as well learn a thing or two about mutations. You know what they say – if you can’t be a good example, at least try to be a horrifying, nauseating warning.

    All previous perks. Also, your character will be drawn on a handmade character sheet by one of our artists and incorporated into the book as one of the iconic NPCs.

    Champion of Rats

    The very mention of your name sends humans fleeing. You are a legend among our kind! Everyone wants to be like you, they even want your mutations and mutilations! One can safely say you are the progenitor of a new subculture. Tell us what to do, we’ll follow. Billions will marvel at your achievements.

    All previous perks. Also, your rat culture will be included in the book. The author and artists will work closely with you to make your ratty vision of society come true.
