So now that The Firelands is available and quite a few people have it, what is the next expansion? And when will the next expansion be released? For those that do not have Firelands yet....read this review, you can not put it more eloquently. Bottom line, you need this expansion.
Each year they have released at least 1 expansion since the game was released as Revised 4th edition. Very early last year we had The City and late in the year The Nether Realm expansion POD. With the corner expansions they have been true to Talisman 3rd Edition by releasing the same corner expansions thus far. However, they have strung us along in a longer (and more costly) fashion by releasing each expansion with only one corner rather than the thrifty and expeditious 2 corner expansion boxes in 3rd edition. With 4th edition though, we have been blessed with much better artwork and all these wondrous small expansions. Yes, we did get the wacky Dragon expansion in this edition but house-rules can help it be playable. So when we lay out our boards on our VERY LARGE table and look at it in all it's splendor we have one glaring thing missing.....A fourth corner.
So what is next? I believe they are going to hold true and keep it simple....a Forest Expansion. I really like some of the ideas that have been mentioned on this thread though. The Sea Expansion is well worth exploring (I am surprised there is not one on Talisman Island yet). The Nekropolis is great idea and looks nice. We really need some anti-magic users; Magic wielders seem to control the fate of the game. Ranged rules? Yes, please. There probably is not much hope but I wanted a High Elf since I always play High Elves in Warhammer Fantasy Battle and usually use the Dragon Rider in Talisman 3rd Edition.
Are they going to utilize the POD expansions more? Could we get another release this year in this manner? I hope so!
So if it is the Forest, how will they make this one unique?. What characters are we missing? What mechanics, if any, need added? When will it be released? Q4 this year?
If they decided to go off the rails and make something that was not the forest, what would it be? They have alternated between Big and Small expansions thus far so the next one should be corner 4...but could it be something else?
