 I finally got word back from Mephisto about the characters!

<snip>

The problems with the Magician Apprentice are an interesting take on the
character's ability. Indeed it is not intended that the character casts
the same spell over and over again. To remove a spell directly from the
game would be also problematic as this ability could be used
aggressively to get rid of certain spells forever. Therefore there are
two solutions.
1. When the Magician Apprentice casts a spell, instead of putting it on
the discard pile it is put below the other cards.
2. The character has to alternate between between drawing from the
discard pile or the spell deck.
The second solution contradicts the card, so I would favor solution 1.
The idea of the ability was just to give this character somewhat more
freedom in learning spells.

Regarding the Black Witch: This was just an error, the starting location
should be the Deep Forest.

<snip>

Best regards
Bjoern

 

I'm going to go with solution one, it's more in the intended spirit of the character.

 

 

Apprentice Mage's "fix" for information.

Perhaps rather than place it at the bottom of the Spell Pile, you could shuffle them into the Spell Pile instead. But then again, that is a change to the intended character...

Hello!

I´m new to the forums, I hope my english won´t be too much of a problem...

I regularly visit the Talisman-forums to read about news, rule questions and about the newest expansions, of course. Right now I don´t have a regular gaming group, so I don´t get the chance to play very often. But in the last couple of weeks, I tried to refresh my memory considering some of the more... subtle rules-questions.

I own the Mephisto-characters myself and I have to agree, while there are some cool ideas and concepts, they seem to be broken, especially when you add the expansions and compare the Mephisto-characters to newer (maybe too powerful ?) ones. (I don´t know if I like the introduction of even more powerful warrior-types like the dragon slayer and the minotaur, and isn´t a character like the fire wizard superior to the "classic" wizard... I don´t have much experience playing "spell-circlers", on the other side.)

But I write in this forums because last night, I tried to experiment a little bit with the Mephisto-characters. I especially changed the satan´s servant abilities without changing it´s "concept", if you know what I mean. I would like to share some ideas with you (It´s probably still kinda broken, maybe you can give me a clue, considering that you have more experience with the game). Is it ok to post my own ideas for the character (just text) in this forums, or is there a problem considering that the character is "semi-official" ?

I´ll wait for the answer and see, if anyone is interested (there seems to be some anger about these characters, especially in the last posts, so maybe you really just want get rid of them... ?)

btw, I really enjoyed the alternate takes on the charakters by Elliot, for example the "goblin bonemaster" or the black witch´s ability to cross the Storm River.

Hey Gondu,

You can make a new topic in the homebrew section, and post the text from your mephisto characters there.

greetings,

Velhart

Some ffg/mephisto characters are pretty good with the new expansions, especially with the dragon expansion.

 

I think that the Martyress has the most deadly ability in the game, if she is used with the Highland and dragon expansion.

If she combine arnkell with her ability, she could end the game within 2 hours. (just focus on getting arnkell, go to tower, and kill the dragon king in one shot!

 

Illusionistess has become a better character, since sacred pool came out, and she don;t have to fear for enemies inside the dragon tower.

However, she can't hide for the endboss, so she should have decent statistics, to  beat that dragon king from his throne!

 

Juggler can fool those dragons in battle with his playing balls, to grab all those nice goodies, unless it's a dragon who cannot be evaded.. Maybe he stumble upon the psyonic wand someday..

Ok Jon, will see what I can do for you!

Ell.

Hi Ell,

I have tried to search the forum to see if you have already accomplished Jon's task and i haven't found it.

Have you made an original translation yet?

 

Thanks,

Amit.

Hi Natstar,

 

These characters are only available in German versions.

 

We have translate the characters into english on this forum.

 

I think you can still buy the original characters cards from Mephisto and FFG, on the Mephisto site.

You can find the Mephisto site here

The cards are included in Mephisto Magazine 48

There are no officially released versions of these in English. Those that you find around the place are either direct translations (more or less) or fan creations based on the artwork/name.

So why there's such a difference between the version Ell posted and the version you had posted (a little bit before he did)?

As I said, some are direct translations (where possible) and others are home brew.

Ell does not like some abilities from Mephisto

 He has change them himself.

My version is translated from the official german text.

However, i have change a ability from the Apprentice magician, because it´s too powerful.
