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.]
