Countdown to U-Con: The Tekumel Factor

If you are reading this, it will be presumed that you have some interest in gaming.  I suppose that if you read this blog specifically you have an interest in old school gaming.  That being the case, if you live remotely close to Detroit, you should be coming to U-Con.  As if there wasn't enough old school gaming goodness with the Labyrinth Lord, Mutant Future, Castles & Crusades, Swords & Wizardry White Box and Stars Without Number, we also have a massive Tekumel track.  The track is featuring games, a meet & greet and a presentation on M.A.R. Barker.  If you happen to be a Tekumel fan, this should not be missed!
