Hello, again.

Does anyone here know the name of the font used for the cover title of Empire of the Petal Throne?

Thanks!

Hello, Tekumelani. I am reaching out to potential playtesters of my upcoming DCC - Empire of the Petal Throne funnel "Ride the Rising Tide of Darkness", which will premiere at U-Con this November. I will run a Hangouts-based playtest on Monday, October 17. If you're curious about Tekumel, or even a grizzled veteran, this is the right event for you.

Event description:
"Ride the Rising Tide of Darkness"
Each year in the benighted city of Purdimal, priests of the Supreme Principle of Change celebrate the high holy day of The Rising Tide of Darkness by offering living sacrifices to their dark deity Hru’u. Deep within the Underworld, persons of low or no clan are released from imprisonment to suffer their grisly fates. Most serve to feed the demons of the dark, but the handful who, by chance or wit, survive until daybreak are deemed by the temple priests blessed by the Dispenser of Calamities. Offered education and status by the priests, these lucky souls can rise high within the Empire.

+George Harnish This DCC EPT thing will probably extend over time, so I suspect there will be additional opportunities.

Do references to divination exist in the source material? A cursory examination of the Sourcebook revealed nothing.

A few months back someone posted a Tsolyani astrology wheel here, taken from one of the old magazine articles. 
(Here's the article linked in that post: http://www.tekumel.com/eoasw6_03.html )

Does anyone know how to get in touch with the Tekumel Foundation? I have tried messaging +Victor Raymond through G+ but he hasn't got the message yet.

Our recent play by post group seemed to enjoy the rules. As a GM I found them to be a pleasant change from d20 based resolution. It is the first system I've played using a 2d10 resolution system and I think it was a unique experience from d20 based. It made me want to absolutely play it again as a welcome diversion from the linear result of a d20.

+Jeff Dee  - For the Kurt Hills Atlas, are you dispatching international orders via USPS or a courier service? I've provided my usual Post Office Box address but couriers can't deliver to it.

Stephen, you might try posting your question as a comment on the Kickstarter page. Other backers might be interested in the answer too, and I'm sure Jeff responds there more rapidly than here.

New month, new generator. This time a statue generator.
For a specific Tékumel customization feel free to contact me, so we can make something up.

Have fun!

More on U-Con: I’m delighted to report that we now have 5 GMs running a total of 10 Tekumel events at U-Con, and event registration is still open! Victor Raymond, President of the Tekumel Foundation, will be running old-school Empire of the Petal Throne games, and the other GMS will run Bethorm and 3 other systems as well.

Event registration has been extended for a few more days! It’s not too late to submit events! Run 6 hours of games (board games, rpgs, minis) and save $$ on admission.

Pre-registration will open later next week, I’ll announce it here.

U-Con is November 11-13 in southeast Michigan. The venue is the Eagle Crest Marriott in Ypsilanti - a discounted room rate is available.

The Tekumel Track at U-Con continues again this year! So far we have 6 events, all rpg sessions, from 4 GMs, each using a different system. We’re covered from Friday evening through the end of the Con Sunday evening. We need more games! In the last few years, we have had enough player demand to fill more than one game at a time. Please submit your event by this Thursday, the 15th, to be included in pre-registration. If that’s too soon, submit your games when you can and come anyway. There will be players available. Pasted below is a message from U-Con with links and more details. They have an impressive group of Guests of Honor this year - too many to list, just follow the link below.
Questions? Ask me!

Are there any good lists of nonhuman names? I need a few Pe Choi, Shen, and Tinaliya names to get the gist of making new ones.

We still have room for more events for the Tekumel Track at Con of the North in Minneapolis in February 17-19 2017.

You have until Sunday night (August 21st) to submit a title, description, number of players, rule system, audience (Everyone, Teen (PG-13), Mature (R)), and time preferences.

We have enough events now that several slots have two events.

So far, we have a Introduction to Tekumel seminar, two miniatures events, and nine RPG events. The rules run the gamut from Bethorm to The Petal Hack to Heirs to the Lost World to Fate to d6 (Star Wars) to homebrew games.

So submit your events to me and get ready for some fun!

Recently acquired an original EPT set from the original owner. 2nd or 3rd printing. Complete except dice (the page insert that's now on the back of the box was only in the 1st edition box).
