I made these as sample home brew characters to use with Timescape but never ended up playing much with neither the expansion nor those characters.
I stopped making these mainly because I was working on the unhollow. Lately I have been busy building a board game collection and put Talisman aside for a while. Got Puerto Rico, The Castle of Burgundy, Race for the Galaxy, and other games made by different publishers (some by FFG and others).
Talisman will still remain one of my gateway fantasy board games due to its simplicity and ever-changing gameplay experience. I can honestly say that I have some long boring games but also had some awesomely fun ones too.
