UNIgames Publishes Béthorm: the Plane of Tékumel RPG

Bethorm cover UNIgames is pleased to announce the release of the PDF edition of Béthorm: the Plane of Tékumel RPG!

Produced under an agreement with the Tékumel Foundation, Béthorm revives the first complete tabletop RPG setting ever published, in TSR Hobbies’ Empire of the Petal Throne RPG (1975).

Far in the future, humans and their alien allies conquer and terraform the lush planet Tékumel. A disaster casts Tékumel’s star system into a pocket dimension. Cut off from Humanspace, civilizations rise and fall as the descendants revert to savagery – while also mastering the forces of magic which operate in Tékumel’s new universe. Become a member of a secret society within your temple, or a sorcerer mastering ancient spells. Be a diplomat engaged in foreign intrigue, a wealthy bravo seeking adventure, a scholar studying secrets of the ancient past… Tékumel offers a whole world of exotic adventures!

Béthorm: the Plane of Tékumel RPG features over 100 illustrations.
