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.

The Guréks of Tléku Miriyá

Snippet from "Swords and Glory" map


The city of Tléku Miriyá is situated on the south-eastern border of Yán Kór shared with Saá Allaqí, at the western end of the Jánnu range and overlooked by the mighty Borodún Head. (The maps on the Tekumel site erroneously show it as part of Saá Allaqí.)

Lord Zhú Kriyór, the clan leader of Tléku Miriyá, is an enthusiastic supporter of Baron Áld and has raised two guréks in support of his cause.
