Panthan’s traveling Jetan set by Morningstar Hall on Etsy.

Jetan, or Martian chess, is played all over Barsoom, and small travel-sized chess sets like this one are carried by many panthans — wandering warriors who owe their allegiance to none — on their journeys.

This handmade and lovingly weathered traveling chess set comes complete with all 40 playing pieces and a canvas playing board.  It all fits securely inside the lightweight wood traveling case, and closes tight with a leather thong and bone bead clasp.

If you want to know who made it, where it came from, and how it came to Earth, hit up the Etsy listing for the full story.
