Has anyone tried playing Relic as a substitute for the Timescape expansion to the old 2nd ed. of Talisman? Would it work? Is there a way to use part of the Relic board, or cards, in this way, or is it just too different of a game to be able to use it like this? I'm thinking of buying Relic to try to use in in conjunction with Talisman, but if it's impossible, I won't bother. Any thoughts?

It would be easy enough to shoehorn Relic into a game of Talisman, but the scale of the game would undoubtedly increase playing time as it is a full-sized board rather than something akin to a region board.
It would be possible to use the decks along with a smaller version of the board, perhaps even a copy of the original Timescape with a few changes.
I'd be interested in seeing more ideas on this subject.

I have never played the Timescape expansion but I have Talisman and Relic, and rather than shoehorn Relic into Talisman, I feel that Talisman should imitate its younger brother and have some craft/strength threat icons on the board.
I know that Talisman is loved (and I like it a lot) and when I play it now that I play Relic more often, my friends and I muse about what Talisman 5th edition would look like.
Presumably, creating craft/strength threat icons would not be "terribly hard" (I say this in inverted comas because I know that TalismanIsland has in fact designed for Talisman, and I get the feeling it is very hard work).
