Jon on his Twitter revealed few details regarding new expansion for Talisman - Frostmarch. It will be small expansion just like Reaper, containing:

- 4 new characters
- 84 Adventure cards
- 20 Spells
- 24 Warlock Quests
- 3 Alternative Endings

 

It will be released in autumn this year. As a reminder, image featured Freeze spell, which we weren't able to see in Dungeon:

Alternative endings, please let there be Horrible Black Void!

Please, please, please, please, please...

(Horrible Black Void as it was, not some sissified version of it, though if the Raiders are anything to go by )

Ugh, I hope not. Timescape is one expansion I'll never miss.

In my humble opinion Horrible Black Void is really stupid and unfair alternative ending ;)

And for me, along with Toad, it personifies all that Talisman is and should be about !

Beside that I have "Talisman: The Adventure" from second hand and Horrible Black Void card had a footprint from a maddened player on its back side ;)

We suffer a lack of players. There are usually only two of us playing and we play "Talisman Bloodbath" mode. Horrible Black Void would mean end of game then. Game in which worse player would win.

Fortunately I don't really expect Horrible Black Void as one of the alternative endings in Frostmarch. 33% chance to lose by reaching Crown od Command is too much.

You mean 16.7% chance, since Black Void was one of six endings (?). We kept the others and trashed the Black Void after one game.  It is not what Talisman is about.

But so far, Frostmarch as a "supplement" expansion could add some freshness to the game.

Horrible Black Void was just proof that Talisman is crazy, wacky fun without regard for human (or dwarf or elf...) life and anything can happen .

I've just posted some pictures of the Frostmarch display from the FFG booth today on Talisman Island. I will be posting the full sized pictures later on in a gallery, but I think you will be able to make out enough detail to be going on with!

What are the characters? My eyes are killing me trying to peer at the names.

This is fantastic !!  

The Ice queen returns and she is on the cover of the box !  The box is awesome !

When i saw the box, i was thinking that it was the mountain board but i realised that it is a small expansion. Not bad.

I wonder what the Ice queen will do. (Maybe a lot of cards that turn you into a toad? haha

Do we get finally  some very dangerous cards?

And we get 3 ending cards too !

+84 adventure cards for the main board?

-----------

Thank you FFG for making a  awesome box of the Ice Queen

Now i look forward to it's contents.

Okay, so Necromancer, Warlock and Ogre Chieftain are pictured in the cards shown. Looking the mini, the fourth looks like Gnome/Halfling/Leprechaun.

Hmm... some things I was able to read:

 

Warlock begin the game with 2 spells, at the beginning of his turn, he can get that many spells as his Craft allows him, and after finishing Warlock quest, instead of Talisman he can take other cards (probably Objects from discard pile).

Ogre can evade Enemy - Monsters, unless he really want to attack them.

Necromancer begin the game with 2 spells, and can choose battle or psychic combat.

 

New Alternative cards are:

Crown and Sceptre
Warlock Quests
*something blue*

Alternative Endings are visible at the begining of the match. Example is Warlock Quests, due to it evcery Character begins the game with 4 random Warlock Quests. Used Warlcok cards can back to the game (Reaper says that they never won't back).

One of new Warlock is "Deliver 2 Objects.

I'm betting Leprechaun on that fourth character.  Would love to see a bit more of those alternative endings, as they are obviously not played the way the old ones were.

Excellent! They have finally added the Necromancer! I love the ghoul and his undeniably necromantic flair, but its good to have an old favourite back!

Any info on when it will all be released?
