Savage Tekumel
For some unknown reason Tekumel's system was ripped from "normal" space and became trapped in it's own pocket universe. This destroyed all that had been established on the world. The survivors slowly struggled back to civilization. Unfortunately all the easily exploitable resources had already been removed. The technology that had existed before was lost to the survivors.

However, a new resource was discovered. Maybe because of the stress of the pocket universe, maybe for another reason. People found that a new, apparently unlimited, power source was available. Energy from "Between the Planes" could be drawn from and used for many purposes. At the same time other planes of existence were discovered. Not only could devices be created to use this new power, but the mind could also be trained to channel it. Powerful beings from these planes have even been contacted. There are some beings so powerful that they are now worshiped as Gods.

Tens of thousands of years have passed and the world has progressed to a mostly stable condition. There are still wars and conflicts, but most progress has ground to a halt.

Players will arrive in the southern part of the empire of Tsolyanu. Tsolyanu is the current dominant empire in this part of the world. It's neighbors are restless and Yan Kor, to the north, is moving troops towards the border.

Even within the empire there are conflicts. Wars provide opportunities for Clans to stand out and be recognized. Even the lowest Clan can gain recognition and increase it's standing in the empire. Inter clan competition, while not usually open attacks, can be bitter and vicious. In these times taking risks can gain great rewards or great failures. As a member of a clan, it's fate effects you. It is wise for all members to perform well and guard the clan from being discredited or causing failure.
