I've read it more times than I could count and I've spent as much time in Professor Barker's imagination as on the planet Earth. EPT is the most perfect example of the proliferating story threads that Damien Walter describes as one of the chief joys of reading a roleplaying game (http://www.theguardian.com/books/book...). I'm not religious, but if I was this would be my Bible.

The best old school D&D world ever written. Still playable and people still use it. The background is exotic, imaginative and well detailed.

The first edition was my introduction to role playing.
