Concrete Cow!

Hi to all in the UK, this is just a quick note to let you all know that I’ll be down at Concrete Cow for some pre-viva relaxation and gaming. I’m looking forward to meeting more Tekumel fans in person. For those of you who might not have seen the notices, here’s a link: http://www.ukroleplayers.com/forum/viewtopic.php?f=98&t=16458

Postscript for the Naqsái Adventure

Clarification and closure from Joe Zottola I have been asked to clarify a couple of things. This is a write-up of an event from the game last night. Kherókh was a Shén played by me (Joe Zottola), Hékpa was an NPC Shén that Joe later also played. The Tlakotáni, Davé was a character belonging to […]

Journey to the Naqsái Lands

6 Hasanpór 2372 At breakfast I met Mridék and Chatán, who looked a bit haggard. Chatán said that he heard that that the land to the south is desolate and filled with Hokún. I told him my concern for Vakúlaz and that he was still missing. I also mentioned that in all the time we’ve […]

Journey to the Naqsái Lands

5 Hasanpór 2372 We woke around noon. There were plenty of aching heads, but soon the musicians began gathering again. Mridék spent the day trying, unsuccessfully, to find the local harbourmaster’s office. I decided that I wanted to trade for some of the local clothes, a couple of their clay pots and one of their […]

Journey to the Naqsái Lands

4 Hasanpór 2372 The shore was nothing but desert sand and rocks. Up in the crow’s nest, the crew can see that the land is flat, extending many tsán back from the shore. Occasionally people come to the beach to see us. They were dressed the same as desert-folk in long dun-coloured robes. The weather […]

Journey to the Naqsái Lands

2 Hasanpór 2372 The New Year begins. There was little celebration over the Intercalary Days, certainly nothing like the celebrations in Tsolyánu. I am a little disappointed, but will make up for it when we reach land. Today the coast turned towards the south after following a rocky headland. Mridék called a meeting to decide […]

Journey to the Naqsái Lands

Ikáner An island was sighted off the starboard. Actually it was more of a rock than an island. Tékuna was worried and warned us that these rocks often turn out to be gigantic beasts. Vakúlaz took us closer and we saw that his was not only an island, but that it had shipwrecked survivors. We […]

Journey to the Naqsái Lands

30 Dohála 2371 Just as dawn was breaking we saw a low dome-shape floating in the sea. It appeared to be a little over two dháiba at the highest point and was a glittering brown colour. Even from this distance we could see the immense thing was rolling over. It stopped when it looked at […]

Journey to the Naqsái Lands

29 Dohála 2371 Mridék asked me to look at a box of medicines and herbs that one of the marines bought. The box was made of leather sewn at the sides with a close-fitting lid. I didn’t recognise many of the herbs and medicinals since some were dried, some were ground to a powder, and […]
