I played ept a couple of times.
Didn't like it.

Missed the survey.

I fondly recall playing EPT back in the late 70s/early 80s, with these funky fold-out plastic maps and a rulebook with the strangest creatures and languages we'd ever seen. Sadly, none of the good DMs in our circle seemed to really get into this world, and my personal impression was that the books were far too sketchy to give DMs or players a very clear idea of what MAR Barker had in mind for such campaigns.

Amazing seminal work, though, and far less "derivative" than nearly anything available at the time.

Still going strong amidst its loyal and dedicated cultists, errr… followers.
