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

  2. “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”

    Will these be included in the PDF as well, or are they only in the printed book?

    I’ve been playing RPGs since “the little white box” came out from TSR. That puts over forty years in my gaming career! M.A.R. Barkers’s World of Tekumel was one of the very first games I played in and ran. I am very grateful to the Foundation for trying to reproduce and reprint this fantastic world! I just wish they would do a newer edition in larger print! I also would like the Foundation to think about trying to get another company to do brand new editions. I have many connections with Steve Jackson Games if the Foundation is interested in following up on this. You do not want to know how much I would enjoy seeing “GURPS Tekumel! Just bought the softcovers – will buy the hardcovers once finances permit. Tekumel has been “the forgotten RPG” for far too long! If the Foundation does any more with this immersive fantasy realm, I want to buy it!
