Empire of the Petal Throne in hardcover and softcover – available now from DriveThruRPG.  Order yours today!

The new hardcover and softcover editions of Empire of the Petal Throne arrived and are available now at DriveThruRPG.com! Here’s a link: http://www.drivethrurpg.com/product/2060/Empire-of-the-Petal-Throne?it=1. Both the hardcover and softcover versions have the following:

  • The full text of the original TSR edition of Empire of the Petal Throne as published in a boxed set in 1975
  • Errata for the original TSR edition
  • A Citizenship Document and translation
  • A map of Jakálla – The City Half As Old As the World
  • A B&W map of the Five Empires
  • Reference Charts from the original TSR boxed set

All of this for $19.95 for the softcover and $24.95 for the hardcover version.  The Foundation has also updated the PDF version of the rules; this is still a picture scan of the rules, but it is precisely the same as the text included with the print-on-demand edition.  We intend to make a text-searchable version available free to customers who have bought the PDF, as we move ahead with other projects.

Here is what some advance reviewers have to say about Empire of the Petal Throne:

“Empire of the Petal Throne provides a wealth of information for a beginning referee to work with. Where the players can go, what to do when they get there, and who they will interact with are quite well fleshed out with just the basic book.” – Storm Bringer

“If you are looking for something different in your old school gaming, I can give this a thumbs up.” – Slappy Squirrel / Hagen Kirk

October 16th is the day!

The Tékumel Foundation is preparing to release the reprint of Empire of the Petal Throne on Monday, October 16th, 2017.  We’re all very excited about this, as it is the culmination of a lot of work on the part of a lot of people.  Some additional notes about the new release:

  • The Foundation is going to produce print-on-demand maps to provide reprints of the stunning maps included in the original boxed set.  We’re hoping to be able to release the maps of the City of Jakálla and the Eastern and Western maps of the Five Empires in the near future.
  • We will also be updating the PDF version when we release the print-on-demand edition, to a version matching the print-on-demand edition.  This will still be a picture PDF; the text-searchable version is in the works.
  • The ebook for Professor Barker’s second novel, Flamesong, is the next project on our list – more news on that as it develops!
