Jahtima is a lightweight TTRPG for hunting monsters in Early Medieval Northern Europe.


About the Game:

This is a game of landscapes and creatures, set in the late Iron Age of the far North of Europe in a mystical place called Põhjala. This is an age where humanity is struggling to separate itself from nature through the rise of agriculture and early industry. The humans of this era are terrorised by beasts, manifestations of the natural world itself that are fighting back against this taming of the wilderness by humanity. In this game you play as human hunters, attempting to protect your community and survive in this harsh world.

This game describes the four main stages of the hunt each with its own unique mechanics.

  • Starting with Divination, the stage of ritual and offerings used to connect with the gods and glean what may be to come.

  • Tracking where your hunters traverse the vast landscape seeking tracks, signs, or trails of the beast they follow.

  • Stalking where your prey is in sight and you must move carefully and cautiously before you engage.

  • And the final stage is, Striking where hunters confront their prey, engaging them face to face.

    Only orders that contain items that are in stock at the time of ordering will be combined, when possible. 


    Essentially it is the same as above. We adore all of you and strive to give you the best possible customer experience possible but inventory tracking not only for us but for our vendors and partners makes this almost impossible to do now. 


    Pre-order dates are subject to change. We get as frustrated as you do when things come up but this happens from time to time. Sometimes circumstances beyond our control will create delays. We try to communicate via social media and our weekly newsletter to keep everyone as up to date as possible. 

    All items in an order containing pre-orders will ship with the pre-order item once it is in stock. If you would like the other items earlier, please place a seperate order from the one containing the pre-order. 

    We cannot combine pre-orders with existing orders nor combine new orders with existing pre-orders. 

    Pre-orders will be exempt from any type of general sale.
