Founder of an Empire

News is coming through that Professor M.A.R. Barker, the man behind Tekumel, has passed away. EPT was the second RPG I owned, after GDW's venerable Traveller. It was a fantastic blend of Jack Vance, Clark Ashton Smith, a RPG that did not use J.R.R. Tolkien as inspiration.

A wonderful creation.

Addendum: Forbes has an obituary up.
