Beast Hunters

Note: We have released an optional 1.5 patch for Beast Hunters. You can see a list of changes and read all of Beast Hunters' rules in the 1.5 System Reference Document.

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.

Beast Hunters is a roleplaying game that uses innovative mechanics for social, mental and physical conflicts. Through the power of your creativity, you have an unlimited array of actions and maneuvers at your disposal. The game includes many unique beasts with custom tattoo designs, adventure seeds, detailed advice for how to play and run the game, and more.

Beast Hunters features core rules focused on two-player groups and expanded rules for more players to join the Hunt.

"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."
