Do I have any idea what this “really” is?  No.  Does it matter?  No.  Some images just leap out at you - they belong on Tékumel regardless.

Going to Arisia!
Hey there, Tekumel fans - I will be at Arisia 2013 in Boston, MA next weekend. Are there any Tekumel fans who would like to get together and game, gab or just hand out practicing their Tsolyani? I am arriving Thursday evening and leaving Monday night, so the weekend is open - except for that rather large SF convention. :)
