Tékumel maps

Index to Swords & Glory Vol. 1

HOG reproduction

Because Swords and Glory, Vol. 1, lacks an index, Thomas Thompson wrote such an index, which has proved to be an indispensable guide to navigating through the worldbook. This reproduction of the original index is good only for the original Gamescience workbook or for the Tita’s House of Games reproduction of the worldbook, and not for the Different Worlds reprints.

Swords & Glory Character Sheets

To supplement the use of the Swords and Glory rules for role-playing. Five 8-page booklets with a staple in each on special harder-than-normal paper.

A Jakállan Intrigue

Tita’s House of Games, from the Tékumel Games original

An adventure module set in the opulent palaces and villas of Jakálla where player characters must face scheming nobility, deadly assassins, and shadowy spies. Mark Pettigrew, the author, recommends the adventure for 3-5 characters of intermediate level (3rd to 6th levels).

A Jakállan Intrigue (Missing Text)

The original printing of A Jakállan Intrigue contained a printing error, i.e. the description of Event 4: The Battle was missing. Here is a copy of the missing text from A Jakéllan Intrigue. This text may be downloaded free or purchased for 25 cents plus a self-addressed envelope.
