This PDF booklet details one ‘mega-hex’ of map (133 x 120 km) located around Katalal – the default starting place for Bethorm RPG characters. It includes descriptions of many local sites, providing a wealth of adventure hooks for any new Bethorm campaign! Usable with any Tekumel-based game.
Now that the game is out, our focus switches to supporting Béthorm with utilities and content. We’ve just added a new “Free Downloads” tab to the web site, where we plan to post at least one new freebie each week – at least until we run out of ideas! First up is a Tsolyani calendar, to help Béthorm GMs keep track of campaign time. It also references the Tsolyani celebrations and festivals from Prof. Barker’s Tekumel Sourcebook. There’s a printable PDF version of the calendar, as well as an Excel version for keeping track on your computer. Otulengba!
