The Garden of the Weeping Snows - Briefing

* * * * * * * * * *

The world of Tekumel is a world unlike our own. Decaying technology,
powerful magic, alien races, stifling temperatures and a parthenon of
interventionist gods. A world where steel is rare and horses unknown.
A mighty nation bestrides this world - Tsolyanu, the Empire of the Petal
Throne - beset by enemies without and within.

You, and your five companions, are summoned to Tekumel by the Sorceror
Ruvadis. You are free to explore or to leave as you wish, once you have
performed the, oh most slight of favours for Ruvadis. The favour? Just
to retrieve an item long borrowed by the ancient Necromancer Nyelmu, the
tormented prisoner of the Palace of Frost in the Garden of the Weeping
