The Tekumel Sourcebook Is Back!

It's an exciting week in Kickstarters and releases! A piece of work that I have wanted for a long time (in an affordable format) has been re-released. That's right, you probably already know about it. The Tekumel Foundation has re-released  The Tekumel Sourcebook, Swords & Glory Vol. 1 in PDF and POD! AND it's only $29.95 for a hardcover. That's a good price for a hardcover game book these days. Not to mention that price is only $10.00 higher than the PDF. Need a PDF AND hard copy at the table? Only $5.00 to add the PDF to the bundle. Not half bad for such a great piece of gaming history.
From the The Tekumel Foundation
The Tekumel Sourcebook, Swords & Glory Vol. 1, is now available in PDF, hardcover and softcover printings from DriveThruRPG.com!  This edition is a reprint of the original Gamescience edition, with the following changes and additions:
  • The original full-color box cover art has been reproduced on the cover, instead of the blue single-color cover
  • Notes about the Gamescience and later editions have been added on the frontispiece page
  • A new index and glossary have been added
  • The original back cover art has been reproduced on the new back cover (see below)
The Foundation will be releasing the maps from the Swords & Glory, Vol. 1 boxed set in the near future, to go along with the re-release of The Tekumel Sourcebook.  The original maps from Empire of the Petal Throne may be used in conjunction with The Tekumel Sourcebook.  You may purchase the print version of the Sourcebook along with the PDF as a DriveThruRPG bundle (nb: you may need to log in to view the Sourcebook).
