Great news!

 

On the box I can see a lot of female characters so we can suspect the return of girl-power in the next expansion

Also the Harpy is the second Monster with craft (after a demon that teleported us to the Plain of Peril)!

Black Elf from Dungeon was Craft 3 Enemy-Monster. And wasn't Cerberus a Monster as well?

I did remind myself the Cerberus just after I posted it though I completely forgot about Dark Elf. You're right! It's fourth Monster with Craft then.

You can see the board and 2 of the minis in the advertisement on the front-page of BGG(right-side of screen for me).  Looks like the board is the same size as the Dungeon...in other words HUGE!!!

Guessing the board will have another LoD-like path available to the Crown of Command.

Looking at the character art, Valkyrie? Spock ? Little flyer is Fairy?

I can't see it. Can you copy-paste it here?

That little green character looks like a fairy, or maybe a pixy

The Guy on the left looks like a elf.. ( but he has a wand..?

Maybe that the character in de middle is a Valkyrie? I really hope so...

Can I see a skeleton there...?

 

Lack of female characters in Talisman so the more the better...

I hope that the Highland expansion box has a inlay for many adventure cards...

But i am afraid that it will be the same as the inlay from the dungeon expansion..

 Probably right on the "Other path to CoC" bit, but I'm ok with that.  I do wonder if it'll be another place to power level your characters, like Dungeon?

Also...  6 characters this time.  Is that to make up for the 4 that came with Frostmarch?  Keep the avg. characters per expansion at 5?

Given the name of the expansion, and looking at the figures on the ad on BGG, I think it's safe to assume that at least one of the new characters will be the Highlander!

No, if that were the case he'd be the only character in this set. THERE CAN BE ONLY ONE!

Sorry, bad joke.
