Tekumel

The Empire of The Petal Throne is a role-playing game system created by Professor M.A.R. Barker[?]. It was developed to provide a more "realistic" alternative to the Tolkien-flavored RPGs which arose from Dungeons & Dragons/Chainmail miniatures (wargaming) rules.

Tekumel is the game world, based on India, Middle Eastern, Egyptian and Meso-American mythology, rather than the overused European mythologies. Huge empires with medieval levels of technology vie with each other with magic, large standing legions, and ancient technological devices.
