E is for the Empire of the Petal Throne

The Empire of the Petal Throne, often abbreviated as EPT, is a role-playing game created by Professor MAR Barker way back in the early nineteen seventies of the millennium just past. It was published by TSR a little after Dungeons and Dragons. Tékumel is the planet on which the game takes place. Tsolyánu is the proper name for the Empire of the Petal Throne, a vast empire larger than modern day Europe that is ruled over by a God-King. The box cover is shown above. It depicts the city of Béy Sü, the capital of the Empire. My previous posts on Béy Sü can be found here...

  1. I didn't get to play D&D much, or for very long--but I really enjoyed it. Seems like everything is online today. Pity. I think people miss out on the energy and excitement that comes with gathering around a table and embarking on a quest, where you're sharing snacks and trading quips.

    Kudos to you for keeping these games alive!
