Magician, which in paperback became 2 books: Magician: Apprentice and 
Magician: Master. Someone put together a list of 75 correspondences 
between the Feist world beyond the Rift and Tekumel. The story I heard was 
that Feist was playing in a campaign, loved it, and asked the GM if he could 
have permission to write novels set in the campaign. Unfortunately, the GM 
neglected to tell him that it was a D&D/EPT crossover campaign, and that 
EPT was a copyrighted setting. But that's just hearsay. Feist denies that 
there is any connection between the two.

BTW, Feist worked at Midkemia, before becoming a novelist. They used the 
D&D world from the above campaign as the basis for all their products.
