You didn't post those sorts of ideas in this topic. *shrugs* Besides I was just throwing out what I thought might happen. I'm not so sure why you feel the need to get so huffy about it.
If others think the same or similar ideas than I am happy and hereby retract my huffy statements.
I think I am very long winded and like to elaborate on *any* ideas about Talisman. I would love to be able to discuss all ideas about an expansion that integrates the various regions or other sets.
Previously someone or two has indicated that FFG is not likely to do this, because so many people may not purchase or use all the sets.
So an integrated expansion set would not work for those folks.
But as the thread indicates, "what next" I would like to think that FFG would have to do something along these lines.
Another thought or idea would be (after the 4th) would be small sets that have more of a scenario, a mystery or quest that either fits into the main board concepts, or possibly "is at home" with a corner.
Examples: "Mystery of the Witch Tree" (since there is line about this in one of the Warlock Quests) . Since it revolves around the main board, vis a vis the Cursed Glade, this set 'should' be used with the Blood Moon set. What is the mystery? Well in Talisman tradition, it could be a different variable in each game. An evil presence to be conquered by Good characters. A Talisman hidden in the branches, but so is something else… A beautiful and powerful Good Witch trapped by her evil counterpart. Free her for some reward. The Enchantress, or the Mystic now require the special fruit of the tree before they grant their usual gift, or to achieve some new special gift or ability. Maybe there are Dragon Eggs buried beneath it and the Witch Tree will give them extra gifts if you can't stop them from being born.
Of course the proper set would have other cards or characters that figure into this. A Witchy Gardener (he can also grow other helpful things?)
As far as a mystery/scenario for another corner: The Forgotten Prisoner. The King has a brother or cousin, who *almost* inherited the throne. But now this person sits in the Dungeon Cell, alone and forgotten. Variables: was he put there because he's evil? Did he try to usurp the throne? Or… is he the rightful King and the one in the Castle is the usurper. So many variables with that!
As with the Witch Tree, or any such idea, they would have to have some reason to make them important enough to delay the Crown, or the reward for solving, also advantages your quest to the Crown.
By the way I like the other Horror ideas that have been mentioned, I always liked zombies and what not showing up in D and D, back in the day.
