I've played Talisman since I was a kd in the '80s and purchased the new 4eR edition in January, followed several weeks ago by Sacred Pool and the Reaper. The rest of the expansions are on the way when Bloodmoon is released. In other words, I love Talisman.
As I haven't played in quite some time (and when I was little, I often played solo), and as there are some new elements in the game, I have a couple of questions. They are likely easier ones and probably have been answered before but I have not seen them on here since I've been lurking this year.
The assassin, he can essentially assassinate anything correct? Either something that is face up alread, or a character, or a card that he draws on that turn? I believe I'm reading that correctly from the FAQ put out by FFG. Now, I believe, if I'm correct, that he can only use this ability on battle and NOT on psycic combat, correct? He could not assassinate a demon. Can ya'll clear that up for me?
Second, there is a follower (I think) that allowed one of my opponents last night to draw an extra card from the adventure deck. Can he do that if he is unable to draw a card? For example, he lands on a space with one or multiple face-up cards. Can he then draw one since it allows him to draw more than he normally could? In my opinion, he shouldn't be able to draw since he implies you draw an extra WHEN YOU CAN draw…..but he was drawing like crazy.
Lastly, and perhaps the easiest, the Portal of Power. When you calculate the strength or craft that you need to roll less than or equal to, is that your actual ability on your character (plus those you have gained during the game) ONLY or can you also count any items or follower bonuses that you have?
Thanks! I'm sure I'll think of other things. There are just sooooooo many different elements to this epic game. I look forward to contributing to this site.
