The Roleplaying Challenge Game
of Blood, Tattoos and the Hunt

You are an elite warrior who stalks the monstrosities
that threaten your tribe and savage your land.
With every tattoo inked in the blood of the beasts,
you claim more power.
With every kill, you prepare to face stronger foes.
Only the most skilled and
most cunning Beast Hunters survive.
Will you?

Also: check out the wiki for the next edition.

Set your wits and weapons against the deadliest of beasts. Challenge them, kill them, and use their blood in the ink of the tattoos commemorating your victory and in so doing, claim a portion of their power.

"The book is gorgeous and the artwork strongly evokes the tribal mood Beast Hunters strives for, but at the same time this game is perfectly suited to other genre with little modification."
