In the last decade and a half peculiar children have been born. No one can say exactly what’s causing their birth, but their existence is undeniable. Many peculiar children are abandoned by their families. Others are forced to hide their peculiarity lest they be discovered and suffer the same fate, or worse. So far, each peculiarity is unique.

?Peculiar Children ?is a game inspired by Miss Peregrine's Home for Peculiar Children?, a novel and photograph collection by Ransom Riggs. In it, you take on the role of children with peculiarities; supernatural abilities that make you distinct from other human beings. Peculiar children are rarely safe. Their abilities make them targets. You might be hunted by pseudo-scientists keen to experiment upon you, private agencies who would manipulate you for power or wealth, or ignorant mobs who see you as other.

Despite their youth, peculiar children often have to find solutions on their own. When other peculiars go missing, the police ignore it. When supernatural events occur, peculiars are blamed. Getting past these problems is just another day in the life of a peculiar child.

This game is based on the Year Zero Engine and uses a pool of d8s as it’s resolution mechanic, augmented by a d6 whenever a child’s peculiarity comes into play. Furthermore, children can bank peculiar points when they succeed, which can be spent to use their peculiarities in ways that don’t require the rolling of dice.

SoulMuppet uses shipping partners in the UK and USA to provide shipping that's versatile and cost effective. We've focused on working with indie people within the games industry who understand our products, and providing shipping that lets as many customers as possible pay customs fees and duties upfront to avoid hassles at the border.

Our US shipping operation is a single person working part-time and our UK operation is part of a shared service with other games companies. Both are small and are businesses we hope we can help grow alongside us. This means we absolutely cannot ship and process items like a giant online business with multiple fulfilment centres, and nor do we aspire to. We're focused on paying the people we work with a fair wage and treating them as people.

United Kingdom Delivery

We send UK packages 1st class untracked, although larger and heavier packages may be sent tracked. The rates we charge on the store are for untracked. Typically this means a 2-4 day turnaround from you ordering your books to delivery. This is subject to delays related to Royal Mail services such as strikes or seasonal volumes. On occasion, large volumes of Kickstarter fulfilment at our warehouse can delay store orders.

United States Delivery

We send US orders via USPS media mail where possible. Turnaround times in our US warehouse vary significantly as it is a shared service that does a lot of Kickstarter fulfilment. Most orders will be processed within 48 hours, but processing can take up to 7 working days.

Most orders are sent via USPS media mail, but where items are not suitable for media mail we'll choose the most appropriate service for the order based on its contents.

EU Delivery

We send EU packages tracked and where available via services that include duty paid in advance. This is reflected in what you pay on the store. For Kickstarter fulfilment products, this relies upon you picking the correct country variant and paying the correct amount. All our packages are sent with duty paid, either as books or at standard rate for non-books items. We are not able to take responsibility for decisions made by customs agencies in destination countries if they decide additional charges are needed.

Duty paid in advance services have a limit of £200. If your order goes over this value you will be responsible for dealing with the cost of duties and customs on arrival.

Rest of World Delivery

We set up shipping rates for countries not covered above on an individual basis. If you find the store shows everything as out of stock or you are unable to complete checkout because of your address, please contact us and we'll investigate options for setting up shipping to your country.

We send orders to countries not covered above using tracked services that are the most reliable available to us. This is often expensive, but costs less then resending packages multiple times.
