Has the author never heard of Tékumel, then? Only product to ever feature a language of its own my bucket of Cougies.


Those who can, don't. Those who should not, do.

thank you for link nn was interesting read to perspective
Mayfair Games did not give sufficient thought to the the well-rounded world design needed to support a classic legacy product like Judge's Guild "City State" setting. They hired me to expand the concept and develop content for it after they had already painted themselves into a corner in terms of game design decisions encapsulated in their foundation boxed set/GM product.

I wonder if she knows what happened that the line was ended short of what was planned or were sales that bad?
