There are some interesting mechanical connections between Everway and OTE especially both games' lean and narrativist character designs and point-based power systems. And you don't need to buy the book to explore the system. This year, Atlas Games published the WARP system as an OGL system! You can find links to the WARP system OGL SRD here.
I remember a con report back in the day - I believe it was by Tweet and not Stolze but I might be wrong - about a linked series of three convention scenarios featuring Everway's evil schemer dragon Alurax. The first took place in Everway, the second took place in Tweet's Ars Magica setting, and the third took place in OTE. It sounded really fun!
The closest I ever got to running OTE was running an Ars Magica-Vampire: the Dark Ages fusion game that was set on Al Amarja! I placed the island in the Baleric Isles. I decided that in the Middle Ages it was known as Al-Majar. A crazy schemer wizard was building a second Noah's Ark there and planned to flood the world to rid it of vampires! I remember the PCs surprise when the wizard kept on fighting ever after they beheaded him... they don't make evil schemers that way anywhere else than in Al Amarja!
