Hello,
Firu Ba Yeker is ill.

Professor Barker has for decades created Tekumel and written under the scribe pen name above. He is now, in real life bed ridden. Having spoken to him today, I am here to advise you all that he has needed hip surgery for years, his eyes are failing and he can no longer read or write much.
When I read his last book, this phrase caught my eye, "A death of kings spreads a sea of silence across the land. Those who live must now depart..."
So it is with Tekumel. There will be no more guiding hand, and none have the means to prevent this.
I will be writing a novel in a 'tekumel like' world, as Professor Barker has told me, to avoid any inconsistencies. As for the rest of the information published in snippets over the years as sourcebooks and rules, I feel that the only suggestion that I can offer is to ask the good Professor if it can be passed to a well established company with a huge record of successes. I think that you all know that Wizards of the Coast may be the place.
Nothing for me, nothing for anyone who wishes control over the product, simply a means to ensure the legacy of the World of Tekumel carries on.
Say what you think here, pass this on to others, let the world know that this is occurring. Do what you can or must, see if you can help the Professon, see if you can help the world, whatever your skein of destiny.
-thank you-

I am very saddened to read about the Professors status as of the last post.

I greatly value all of the World of Tekumel products that I have been lucky to accumulate over the years - and I hope that those who have also appreciated this unique creation will also seek to ensure that it is somehow preserved, just as another well-known Proffesor of Linguistics Works (Initials JRR ...) have also been preserved and presented again in many new mediums.

At 48 years of age - I have gathered "The Olde Gaming Group" of Veteran RP Gamers together again - and WE all delve deep into 'Phil's" World again this Sunday evening.

Like a Master Class work of art - I hope that MAR Barker's World of Tekumel is archived and preserved for future readers (as within this Forum and Site) to appreciate and marvel at.

I would love to hear from any of Phil's old Tekumel gaming group as well.

I am unaware of Firu Ba Yeker's current status, and I hope that the he is in a place of care and comfort whereever he may be.

I'm rather curious if there is any new news on this, since the moderated group is pretty much dead it seems.

I haven't seen anything public. I think the best places to ask are the moderated group (still) and info@tekumelfoundation.org
