An optimist would say that it might be an actual manuscript for one of those published items...  :)

I have seen other M.A.R.Barker stuff in manuscript or pre-pub form.  That could be one of them.

IIRC the published version of Mitlányal was released by Carl Brodt in 2004 @ DunDraCon; details @ Tita's House of Games | Tékumel Items

The entry at that link says:

Mitlányal

...and numerous corrections to the prior text-only version.


I'd guess that the text-only version is what aia bought.

Tekumel has had this sort of underground publishing effort for several years, via Carl Brodt, so I'm not surprised that there was a text-only version available before.  The question is, of course, if it's more valuable than the more-professionally published version? :D

Older would be cooler for me.

Professional does not equal better in my mind.

Then again, my mind is a strange place to most.   :x

I'd have to dig out my copy to be sure but I think the book has 6 plot lines in it as well for potential adventures to be built on.  If its the one I am thinking, a lot of them seemed pretty standard like there's this sword and ... and its stuck in some stone ...

I picked up a copy about 2 years ago for $10.  I think they range in the $10-$20 region mainly because not too many people search for it - although I can't remember what Frank's copy sold for.

I picked one up in the lot with some Arduin stuff last summer.  Sure would have like the City one though :)  Nice win.

Interesting, those have blue maps that look similar to TSR maps. Did any other publishers use blue ink maps like those?
