Your family is starving and only a miracle can save you. Set on a journey to the land of the Gods to find the legendary Sampo, a treasure of endless riches and nourishment. Please the Gods is an atmospheric old school fantasy roleplaying game, inspired by shamanistic Finnish mythology and tabletop classics such as Hero Quest.

Old-school dice combat – Swap, destroy and manipulate enemy dice in this modern twist of classic dice combat.

Flexible skill tree – Overcome your enemies with clever use of your combat skills: Hunting, Survival, Lore and Companion dog.

Encounter mythical creatures and monsters – Vanquish Finnish mythology’s infamous monsters such as the shapeshifting Water Hag and the Netherworld’s Restless Dead.

Survive the unforgiving Nordic wilderness – Hunt, fish and forage to gather the strength to survive in the harsh Finnish nature.

Earn the favour of the Gods – perform quests for ancient pagan Gods: Ahti, the elusive God of the Depths, Tapio, the gentle God of Forests and Nyyrikki, the fierce Goddess of Hunt.
