New Tekumel Art For A New Blog

Juan Ochoa has done this wonderful illustration for my forthcoming Fate of Tekumel blog. We'll be building out the blog over the next couple of weeks, as a prelude to a larger project. We hope you like his illustration!

The inquisitive creature in the foreground is one of the quick-moving reptilian Feshenga. To its right is a patch of the toxic Food of the Ssu, some of the indigenous vegetation of Tekumel from the times before terraforming. It's always trouble when you see Food of the Ssu. And it's double trouble when a Feshenga sees you first!

We think Juan's art is quite evocative of the mysteries and dangers of Tekumel, where humans are most decidedly NOT at the top of the food chain!
