  1. On the other hand, if you think in terms of flavor, it would make sense that he charged and became exhausted, and therefore could not encounter the rest of the space. So, I could see this work either way. If his turn does end immediately, then I think they chose poor wording.
  2. I cannot tell who is being ironic and who isn't, but this issue came up during a game I played yesterday. My understanding was this: If the Highlander charges, he will still encounter the rest of the space (craft enemies, objects, etc.) Otherwise he would not be following the instruction to miss his next turn. Therefore, I do not believe the "turn ends immediately" rules apply to the Highlander's charging ability. An official clarification would be nice, though.

    My first custom character

    Mr. Brogger said: To be honest, I prefer classic fantasy characters, but he is for sure fun He may fit better into a Timescape expansion. Not that I hope for a Timescape Expansion. I like his abilities and he seems very balanced too - Good job Admittedly he is intended primarily as a joke character to spring on my friends. I also prefer classic fantasy characters most of the time. I should point out that his third ability is supposed to work as a response to an attacker. So it should read "When a character attacks you, you may use inviso-belt..." Not sure if that is how you perceived it, or how it might swing the balance. Thank you very much for the comments!
  4. Talisman has been getting a lot of play at home lately. So much that I began taking an interest in these forums, as well as other games by FFG. Even more recently I've been exploring both the official and home brew histories of Talisman. Long story short, I'm a noob in the community. But I love Talisman, and I have a creation of my own (sort of) to share. I respect that Talisman is all about generic fantasy characters, but I'm just having fun with this. So without further ado, here is a tribute to my favourite superhero turned talk show host, Space Ghost. Hey at least he's a ghost. Comments/criticism welcome. Also, if this forum has a preferred method for image linking/posting, please let me know.

    3 Questions

    Thank you for the help, Dam! I guess I missed that thread... and pg. 10... and the rules section... actually, after I posted the questions, I silently cursed myself for not being in the rules forum. I was up past my bed time and not on the ball. My apologies!

    3 Questions

    1. Winged Boots let you cross the river on a die roll of 6 for movement. If you are rolling 2 movement dice (with Riding Horse) can you use the boots if a. 6 is rolled on one of the dice, or b. the total of the 2 dice is 6? 2. The space dividers in the outer region don't line up with the ones in the middle region. Where do you "draw the line" (so to speak) when crossing the river? Can you cross to any space that is technically across from the space you are on, even if only slightly so? 3. Which direction is "clockwise" in the dungeon?

    Visual Character Database?

    Great, thank you!

    Visual Character Database?

    Is there one single resource that contains scans of all of the official Talisman characters ever printed?

    Favorite Horror Genre TV Shows

    I don't typically watch horror for the scare factor. Occaisionally an episode or movie will creep me out. With that said, I'm often more entertained by dark and/or subtle humour or just bizzare scenarios. I think Hammer House of Horror from the eighties is pretty entertaining. I am also an X-Files fan, but after season six, I lose interest. My girlfriend and I are currently on season four of Buffy. I thought that was going to be a guilty pleasure, but I am actually pretty fond of the campy nature of it. I thought Masters of Horror had a few really good episodes. One of my favourite series was Twin Peaks, but I guess it isn't really considered to be horror. Ironically, I found it to be creepier than anything I've mentioned above. There is some decent horror anime out there. I liked Vampire Princess Miyu. Ultimately I think TV is pretty much crap, so I guess we take what we can get.

    Noob question about wounds and timing.

    Thanks! I'm really enjoying this game.
  11. OK, everything I read makes the answer seem fairly obvious, but I just want to be 100% clear. A wounded character (without toughness) is destroyed immediately, and therefore does not contribute any icons or skill points to the remaining struggles and skill check. This also means that wound tokens are really only used when a character has toughness. Am I understanding this correctly?

    Resolving a Story / Thomas F. Malone

    OK, I understand now. Thank you all for the help.
  13. Hi, I am new to CoC, and I am loving it so far. Anyway I couldn't find an answer in the rules, faq, or postings, so here is my question. Is the active player considered to be the one who is resolving the story, or are both players or no players actually resolving it? This seems important when considering Thomas F. Malone's ability which is: Response: After resolving a story to which Thomas F. Malone is committed, choose and destroy an opponent's Villainous or Cultist character that was committed to that story. Since only the controller of the card can use the ability, the wording makes it sound as if the controller is the one resolving the story. This leads me to believe that you can only use this particular ability if you are the active player. Am I correct, or can this character's ability be played on any player's turn? Thank you.

    Domain Cards

    Hi, I'm hoping to find someone who is willing to sell me a couple sets of the Domain Cards from the CoC CCG. I play the LCG and have no interest in other cards from the CCG. I would like to obtain at least 2 triptychs, but I am not really picky about which ones. I do, however, care about the condition they are in. Thank you.

    What is sold out?

    From what I can tell, the hardest ones to find in stock are: Madness and Horror: * Call of Cthulhu LCG: Mountains of Madness Asylum Pack * Call of Cthulhu LCG: Ancient Horrors Asylum Pack Summons of the Deep: * Call of Cthulhu LCG: Spawn of the Sleeper Asylum pack * Call of Cthulhu LCG: The Horror Beneath the Surface Asylum Pack * Call of Cthulhu LCG: The Antediluvian Dream Asylum Pack With that being said, you can probably obtain most of them by shopping at a variety of online stores and ebay. Or if you are lucky, your local store may have something. I am actually new to this game (and the FFG forums), so there may be better advice out there, but I thought I would try to help.
