Song of the Petal Throne

Posted by & filed under BLATHER, Collection Stats, Song of Blades, Tékumel, Theirs.

It’s my ongoing mission to make every figure in my collection from every game in my collection playable in Song of Blades and Heroes and Mutants and Death Ray Guns.

Here I take on Empire of the Petal Throne.

I got my rules here. I’ve looked them over a number of times and find them fascinating.

Despite the fact I’ve never played EPT, I wrote my Song-of conversion doc because I’ve got a dozen or so of these bad boys:


Those aren’t mine. That sweet paint was done by shadowking; you can find more of his four-plexes here.

And you can go and buy some for yourself here (scroll down about two thirds).

Before I could write a tight conversion doc I had to clean up a couple of minor inconsistencies in the basic character creation process. Find that bit of correction here.

And here is the conversion doc in all its Ever-Glorious, well, glory: Song_of_the_Petal_Throne01

P.S.: If you’re looking for some ongoing Tékumel coolness check out The Excellent Travelling Volume.

P.P.S.: Interestingly enough I just got around to reading the latest issue of Heavy Metal — #275 — which I picked up at Rx (love those guys!) last Wednesday.


I was drawn to it by “Cyberpunk meets Magic Realism” — two of my favourite genres of decades past — and the cover illo, both of which say Tékumel to me.

[EDIT: By way of a final test I ran the Patrons from Issue No. 1 of The Excellent Travelling Volume through Song of the Petal Throne. They turned out very well indeed.]
