R.I.P., M.A.R. Barker, creator of Tekumel

One of my favorite alternate D&D campaign / worlds. And an ok novel. I liked alot of his stuff, too bad time claims all. Except the immortals!

A noted language scholar (sometimes called "the forgotten Tolkein"), Barker created his own ruleset based on his own created world and the game mechanics from D&D. Published in August 1974 as Empire of the Petal Throne.
