It's certainly legendary enough if only for its publishing weirdness...
I'd buy a Tékumel sourcebook for Legend (including a bestiary and Gazeteers for all of the Five Empires) in a heartbeat! I've been waiting for a set of playable rules for Prof. Barker's setting for years. The original Empire of the Petal Throne
was fun, but the setting has evolved beyond the scope of the rules. While the setting book remains THE bible for all things Tékumelyani, Swords & Glory
was waaaaay too crunchy. Adventures on Tékumel
(aka Gardisyal) had too many holes, and I could never wrap my head around GoO's rules.
Please! Please, oh please with a priestess of Dlamélish on top!
