Today I posted a small interview that John Goodenough (Talisman Revised 4th Edition designer) agreed to do for Talisman Island. It covers some interesting ground regarding the revision and the reasons behind some of the changes, including those being discussed on these forums.
I hope you enjoy it!
Cheers for now
John Goodenough has agreed to carry out a follow up feature to the interview in the form of a "20 Questions" article, and this time the questions will be from forum users!
What you need to do is simply post the question you would like to have answered in this thread and I will forward the 20 most interesting onto John for inclusion in the article on Talisman Island!
There are a few ground rules which will have to be kept to, namely -
All questions must be asked via this thread. The only exception to this will be if people wish to remain anonymous (for whatever reason) and want to email the question directly to me and I will post it in this thread. Please do not try to email John directly as anyone doing so will not have that question answered.
If you wish to email me then please do so at this address -
There will be no names used in the article, but the thread will be linked back to if people want to see how the mind of a Talisman fan REALLY works!
Before you pose your question it would be an idea to have read through all of the articles so far on the Talisman minisite and the interview on Talisman Island to see if it hasn't already been covered. It wouldn't hurt to have a look through the rulebook either.
Questions can be about Talisman, game design in general or virtually anything. A good example would be about fate - How fate works has been covered in a couple of articles, but you could perhaps ask about how fate values are calculated for characters.... just an idea. Try to make your question as interesting as possible - questions about John's favourite colour are not likely to be asked, but if we only get 19 questions posted then I might just have to use it!
Questions must be asked by the end of Sunday 13th of January. I know we are dealing with a lot of time zones here, so I will take the timestamp from the forum post. Anything posted later will not be considered, so if you are emailing a question to me, make sure I have it in plenty of time so that I can post it to the thread.
