High & Dry, the introductory adventure for Bethorm: the Plane of Tekumel RPG, is coming soon as a PDF through RPGNow and DriveThruRPG. It’s 15 pages long, containing 9 illustrations (including a color cover) and 3 color maps! Here’s a preview of the cover art:
We were interviewed in January at ChupacabraCon by Gamer’s Tavern. Topics include Cavemaster, Bethorm and more! Click here to listen.
This simple kit allows you to build as many straight, 10”-long Sákbe Road sections as you desire. Great for 28mm tabletop adventures on Tékumel! The kit also includes optional ramps (for getting onto or off of the Sákbe Road), and stairways for climbing up and down its levels. As an added bonus, we’ve included a copy of our popular “Foam Core Crafts for Beginners”!
We’re bringing three finished Sákbe Road sections to OwlCon in Houston this weekend. They’ll feature prominently in our Béthorm events!
Here’s a photo of the prototype of our upcoming Sákbe road model. You’ll print out an 8-piece pattern, and use it to cut out the parts from a standard foamcore sheet. The whole process takes about half an hour. In the final version the pattern pieces with have a full-color texture – so you’ll glue them to the foamcore before cutting them out. The result is wonderfully sturdy, and looks great on the tabletop!
And here’s a finished example! The pattern pieces are printed in color on standard 8 1/2″ x 11″ paper, then glued to black foamcore before cutting. We’re very pleased with the results! Next we need to write up the instructions, and submit the final product to the Tekumel Foundation for approval. The kit should be available for download from RPGNow within a month.
Four more underworld creature paper minis (an add-on from the Kickstarter project) are now available to the general public! Find them in the “Shop” tab at the top of this page!
