  1. I never had a chance to meet him unfortunately, but for some reason I've always had this deep feeling like I have : And that is in Tekumel, one of the most deeply PERSONAL settings in all rpg history. It had a freaking PULSE. I don't think anyone can rightfully say otherwise. Anyhow, I was moved by Chirene's post over here. He says things better then I. http://chirinesworkbench.blogspot.com/2012/03/firu-ba-yekers-gone-and-certainly-not.html
