In Honor and Memory of Professor M.A.R. Barker (1929-2012)
This blog will discuss roleplaying games, but especially Tekumel. Tekumel is a fantasy world, described in Empire of the Petal Throne, as well as novels, such as 'The Man of Gold'.
For more information on Tekumel, see the Official Tekumel website, as well as my Tekumel website on Weird Realm..
Out of curiosity, why a percentile system? More granularity?
Sometimes you feel like a nut. My two favorite early systems were C&S and EPT, both percentile systems. Interestingly, I never played RQ, so that's not an influence. Unlike 3d6, everyone knows what the odds are.
That sounds like a neat idea. Will spellcasters have a percentage chance to successfully cast a spell?
Yes, spells are skills, and they both use the same table. The chance goes up as they gain experience.
I'm really interested in how this turns out. I've been fooling with a percentile old school game too.
