It's Good To Be the King!

The learned and powerful might not labor, but they do work. Low-Tech Companion 1: Philosophers and Kings takes a look at the "technologies" they need to do their jobs at TL0-4. With it, you can:

  • Take charge by choosing your political system and learning what abilities you need to stay on top.
  • Wow the masses with temples, palaces, and monuments raised using the included construction rules.
  • Get the gods on your side through offerings, ceremonies, and altered states of consciousness.
  • Have bards sing your praises, helped by the detailed information on Musical Instrument specialties.
  • Bring enlightenment by making practical use of medical, scientific, and mathematical skills.
  • Spread your teachings with the expanded guidelines for tutelage, drills, and learning.
  • Chronicle your exploits, assisted by the rules for scripts, shorthands, and copying books.

Whether you're a GM designing a campaign setting or the player of one of the privileged few, Low-Tech Companion 1: Philosophers and Kings puts power in your hands.

Low-Tech Companion 1: Philosophers and Kings is a supplement to GURPS Low-Tech. The information on the world of the mind would be useful in any historical setting featuring rulers, priests, or philosophers.
