Running a Tékumel campaign? We want to know!

Are you running a Tékumel campaign right now?  The Tékumel Foundation wants to know!  We’re interested in doing a better job connecting Tékumel fans with Tékumel games – and that’s where you come in.  We would like to know about your current Tékumel campaigns, so we can share it with the rest of the gaming community – and provide some rewards for people who are running games.  Just send us the following information:

  • How often do you meet (e.g. every Thursday night)?
  • Where do you meet?
  • The number of gamers in your Tékumel campaign
  • What’s currently going on in your Tékumel campaign
  • Contact information for you, including name, address, phone and email
  • Anything else you would like to share about your branch on the Tree of Time!

We’ll review the submissions we get and then share the info with other Tékumel fans after the turn of the year  – we’re working right now on the best way to do that (if you have ideas, let us know that, as well).  Thanks!

Website Changes Coming!

The Tékumel Foundation is in the process of revising the language on the Foundation website regarding submissions of new material to the Foundation.  We want to do a better job of letting people know how to present their proposals for Board approval – and that means more clarity on the website.  We expect to have new guidelines available sometime after the turn of the year, so you might want to wait before submitting anything new for Board consideration.

In other news, we are getting close to finishing the reprint of the original Empire of the Petal Throne rules.  The new edition will have color art on the cover, introductions by Gary Gygax and Dave Arneson (of Captain Hárchar fame), a black and white map of the city of Jakálla, all four original reference sheets, and a citizenship document for the Empire of the Petal Throne!  We’re also hard at work on getting Flamesong and Lords of Tsámra released, as well.

It’s that time of year again – the Tékumel Foundation is planning on having a presence at the following conventions in 2017:

We’re interested in other gaming and science fiction conventions, so if you have ideas on where Tékumel fans could be found, please let us know – if we can fit it in, we’ll be there!  We also want to support anyone running Tékumel games at these or other conventions with events prizes and freebies, so please contact us with your event plans.

Where are you going to play Tékumel in 2017?  Inquiring minds want to know!
