That has the ring of truth to it. I bet you're right. I thought it might be a space in the Woodland, but its probably a card to be encountered.

We need more previews to fuel more speculation ;)

I already have 2 questions about this expansion.
1st: The totem bear is an animal, but it uses craft. So what about the Ministrel? Will he be able to charm it, because we can read that the animal adds its strength during battle, but what if it doesn't have strength?
2nd: after encountering it, the toad king moves 3 spaces counterclockwise... Isn't it a bit stupid? Let's say I encounter it, and I become a toad for 3 turns. I will be able to move to its space again, and to gain a strength or (and? I forget) a craft.

1.) I don't think he can charm it. A quick houserule says roll against the craft to charm and use it's craft in psychic combat.

 

2.) That is pretty much the point. Turn into toad, survive three turns of hopping back to him, earn your cones. I like how it works. You can even land on him again and rinse/repeat. Just remember this, most toads will hop back and forth each turn, while this guy encourages you to try and endure whatever trouble is three spaces between you nd him. He's a well designed card.

No charming.

Can you move counterclockwise? ;-)

Agree with Granville on the Toad stuff; the point is to make you consider 'toad-chasing' as a way of leveling up or a reward for having it happen at all.

 

On the Minstrel and the Totem Bear, I tent to think there are limits, almost, to every power, so this is it for Minstrel. His power works over mundane animals, not magical or enhanced types. The evasion of Dragons is a bonus, he can't charm them really but they will leave him alone.

Nice page layout, although I miss the old school look already ;P

Oh, wait... nevermind! I've just found an "Old Site" button ^^;

I don't believe you will be inclined to move and tag all archive posts will you? I wouldn't but then again I'm a lazy male donkey ;)

Anyway, it looks slick, it looks modern, it's easier to navigate (always a plus). Good work :)

 

Edit:

"Home" button apparently directs to the wrong catalog (http://www.talismanisland.com/wp/)

Oops... Thanks for the catch. I'll change the link now (thought I'd got them all!)

 

I actually was considering reposting all of the old news, but it will take a little time.

 

Glad you like it!

Oh Puck - what a mischievous little fellow! That's two new ways so far then to be turned into a toad  :unsure:

I guess this rules our oberon and Titania being the other two characters.

 

1.) Ranger

2.) Satyr

3.) Totem Warrior

4.) Treant-loooking guy

5.) Spider (or Star?) Looking Gal.

I think I am glad to know that Oberon, et al, are not playable characters.  Kinda big reputation to uphold, but on the other hand . . .

 

All three of these strangers seem to be more inclined to the dark side. Its not an incorrect view of Oberon and his 'court'. Most fairy tales of old are about the fairies playing tricks or not playing very nice with humans, so as I said, not incorrect view.

 

Looking forward to more news.

I wouldn't be into the idea of having named characters introduced to the game.  That would be just as bad as bringing in Timescape characters.  Leave the named heroes for games like Descent.  Talisman is all about archetypes.

Wouldn't be the first time. The legendary dragon slayer St. George is a card in the Dragon expansion.
