The suggestion that each player could draw a Warlock Quest Card at the beggining of the game somewhat inspired me.
Originally, this is supposed to make the game even shorter. While I certainly understand this sentiment, I have the exact opposite in mind. This is because the best games of Talisman I had were those taking several hours to complete.
So, at the completion of this quest, the character in question wouldn't be getting a Talisman (these would be only availible through quests from the Warlock, not those generated at the beggining of the game), but 1 Strength, Craft, Life, Fate, Spell or 2 Gold instead.
