An Amusing Description of Tekumel

At my playtest of my new Tekumel rules, +George Hammond quoted a very amusing description of Tekumel from someone who had just read EPT. It's from a discussion on RPG.Net about bizarre settings.

"Jesus...this is so eccentric, personal, trippy, bizarre, jagged, beautiful, crude, and imaginative. It's Edgar Rice Burroughs meets 1960's psychedellic culture meets Imperial China meets the Aztecs in a dark alley behind a brothel in Tangiers, where they bump into a drunken Tolkien and violently sodomize him on a pile of garbage while he begs them not to stop. I can fucking smell the hash smoke coming through the screen of my monitor." 
         -- Richard R.

I just thought I'd share that with everyone.
