Hello there

If you cast your mind back a while, you might remember a small competition to come up with effects for three pieces of art kindly shared by Felicia Cano for the Talisman plug-in for Strange Eons.

For the next stage of the tool, I added Dragon content, but the Dragon decks were slightly different and ended up as a new template, rather than part of the standard Adventure-type cards.

So, I asked a certain Jeremy McHugh, who is the artist behind the original 14 adventurers from the Talisman core set, and he kindly agreed that I might use his personal piece - Dragon Feeder - for the project!!

You can see the rest of Jeremy's creations over on his portfolio site, his blog and DeviantArt page. It's always good to see his warm-up pieces!

Anyway, if you want to have a go at creating the effects of the card, and have your name put into the next version of the Talisman plug-in, just send me a message with your card details and effects and I will see about judging them over the next few weeks.

There may even be a prize of a set of Talisman bonus cards, Doppleganger and Instructor for the entry that is chosen!!

Please note that this will also be posted on Talisman Island, and likely over on BGG too, but you guys can have a little head start.

This is perfect timing. I'm actually working on a Toad King deck in the style of the dragon decks. This makes me wonder if you could build in an option for using different art for card backs, in case one is making a new deck set, and color options for the borders on the card front, as I was planing on other "End Game" NPC decks.

Changing colours would be possible with a bit of work, and some fresh templates. I might see about making some "generic, non-official" templates that would be easier to work with, but it certainly won't be in the near future.

Just changed the scheme to orange (Shamouti) as it looks a bit nicer. Having an extra Grilipus card would also mean I needed to find an extra Varthrax and Cadorus example!!

PS - One entry already!

I've had a few more entries and have just put the announcement on Talisman Island, so there should be a few more coming.

I have decided that the closing date will be at some point on the 26th July, so you have a little while left to come up with something!

 I suppose that the "Stranger" designation of this card is fixed?

I can't see why it couldn't be an Event or Place instead, but Jon will give you the definitive answer!

As it says on the card itself -

Feel free to change the card title and type if you wish.

After much deliberation and a great deal of time trying all of the entries out in Strange Eons, I have decided on a winner for the Dragon Deck Example Competition! 

The winning entry is from Bogusz Ostrowski, also known as "Nefarious" about the forums, with his simple take on the subject matter. His entry was set to use the larger image version of the template, but I jazzed the text up a little and think it looks great with the smaller version of the artwork.

Many thanks go to Jeremy McHugh, for allowing me to use his artwork in the Strange Eons extension, and if you are off to Gen Con in Indianapolis next week go and say hello to him (and buy things!)

I am updating the current extension with the new text for the card, and have added in Lycanthrope cards, "Ability" Overlays, new style Character tokens and made a couple of other tweaks. It should be available to download during the coming week. I'll make a small post on the front page when it is done.

Really nice card and a worthy winner. I think it catches the essence of Talisman both in mechanisms and story.

A really nice card overall, and offers something new within T's simple game mechanics.
