In a serious bid to increase my “Old School Cred”, I’ve joined a classic 1975 Empire of the Petal Throne campaign being run by Grognardia’s James Maliszewski.
Ok, that’s just a bit of hyperbole about the whole Old School Cred, but the rest is true. I’ve started playing an EPT campaign being run by James along with a cool crew, most of whom seem to know a bit more about the setting than I do. But it is great learning it as we go.
One of the cooler aspects is that James is currently producing and selling an EPT ‘zine (The Excellent Travelling Volume, issues 1 & 2 on the left) and the second issue gives rough details of the city where our game is being held along with a wonderful city map by Simon Forster.
But the one thing missing from my Tekumel experience was a decent character sheet. And my quests for one on the internet met with terrible failure. In the end I threw together this sheet in a couple of hours, and I kind of hate it. It lacks what I feel is one of the most important elements of a sheet (the character sketch), and it is far more utilitarian than pretty. But it will do for now.
So, if you find yourself looking for a quick and dirty Empire of the Petal Throne sheet, feel free to download, edit, remix and mess around with this one. It is yours for the taking.
