The Legion of the Lord of Red Devastation!


The Red D's


The Lady Deq Dimani

All sculpted by John Winter, 

The basic trooper poses are 99% done for the Legion of the Lord of Red Devastation - or as I like to call them, the "Red D's".

I have sent this image off to the Tekumel Foundation for approval.

Also shown is the Lady Deq Dimani, nearing completion. She is a general in the Yan Koryani order of battle, leading two Gureks from her Island of Vridu.

Still to come: the Warrior-Priests of Vimuhla, who act as officers for the Red D's, and the legion's Kerdu: the General Karin Missum.

The Spice Must Flow!


...or, more importantly, the mail must!

Last week Canada Post and the Union reached at least a temporary settlement (I believe 1 year) while management studies why it pays its female workers less than the males. (Rural deliveries are paid at a lower rate than urban, and are predominately female, so a bit of spin there but then I am generally opposed to Canada Post's management so there you go.) The bottom line is the mail is flowing again without any likely disruptions for hopefully the next year at least. Yay!

Unknown Artist!


Does anyone know this artist?

I don't recall ever seeing this art before and I think it's great! But how old is it? Who is the artist, and does he have any more Tekumel art?!

Grrr...I hate being sick! *sniff*



Apologies to all for being non-responsive or slow to emails or messages, but I am celebrating the one week anniversary of my first big cold of the year. :-(

Phlegm production exceeds all expectations but have yet to find a use for the stuff except perhaps in the moat of a medieval castle.

I actually tried going into work on Wednesday for a half-day but had to go home after only a couple of hours.

Tekumel Gaming @ Cold Wars 2016





Some Naval Inspiration from the collection of Mike Lung.

This coming weekend is Cold Wars, an HMGS-E wargame convention held in Lancaster, PA. Unfortunately I cannot make it this year. This is especially disappointing as there are going to be at least two Tekumel themed games!

Bill Acheson is putting on the next instalment of his "Panic in Pan Chaka" game. This is a skirmish adventure game using his "Tekumel by Gaslight" - you guessed it, a tweak of the popular Gaslight rules. IIRC, this is in a Saturday morning slot but check the PEL to make sure.

Saturday evening, in the Open Gaming Area (also used for the Flea Market), Steve Braun is putting on another Tekumel Naval game. Apparently he has been tinkering with the Dark Passage rules I tried out at Fall In last year. 

There has even been talk of some larger land battles for Tekumel, perhaps using the Crusader Ancients rules. But this might not be until Historicon. Sadly, I'll probably miss that as well this year.
