I grew up playing the second edition of Talisman. I recently purchased the revised fourth edition, which my wife and I have been playing quite a bit. She absolutely loves the game (as do I, of course), so today I purchased all six expansion packs.
But as I have been researching the revised fourth edition I've noticed that there are a number of characters that used to be in the game that are no longer. For example, what happened to the Barbarian, Centaur, Halfling, Inquisitor, Leprechaun, Martial Artist, Philosopher, Pilgrim, Saracen (not P.C. anymore, I'm sure), Soldier, Spy, Witch Doctor, Woodsman, and Zulu? Why didn't these characters make the cut into the various expansions? Or have I just been overlooking them?
I looked at this collection of photos to find character information.
