Just in time for Halloween, the Swords & Glory Vol. 2 – Tékumel Players Handbook is now available, in PDF, softcover and hardcover versions.  The Players Handbook adds a wealth of information about Tékumel beyond what was revealed in Swords & Glory Vol. 1 – Tékumel Source Book.  It provides all of the information to generate characters for Swords & Glory, including warriors, priests, lay-priests, spies, officials, and more. A complete listing of spells and spell descriptions for mages of all temples  is also provided.  This is a reprint of the original Gamescience edition of the Tékumel Player’s Handbook, published in 1984 as a boxed set with additional material as Swords & Glory, Volume 2. The cover is a newly restored reproduction of the original box cover art, and has never been seen before! The new printing includes the character record sheet, errata for early printings, and the combat and sorcery summaries included with the original boxed set.

In addition to the Players Handbook itself, there are a number of associated products:

Best of all, this release is part of a sale in honor of Prof. Barker’s birthday; print products and connected items and being sold at a discount through the end of November – a great opportunity to buy material to share with other gamers interested in the world of Tékumel.
