    Looks great, hoping to get it printed out properly later this week, just done it on paper for now for a play through with my son. So can you persuade nomad games to include this in the digital edition in the future, probably not but it would be a nice idea

    Awesome! Well done!
     
    Two quick things, just noticed on pg. 3 of the Realms Untravelled rules that a reference to the Border Region is made when it should say Shadow Region. Also, the Stacking the Adventure Deck rules only mentions using 36 Nether cards total. Since it is part of the Realms Untravelled, shouldn't it suggest to use all 52 cards (a 16/36 split)?

    Okay. I've managed to get the files formatted and uploaded, and hopefully there aren't any glaring errors to be seen!

    I hope people enjoy the expansions, and just to mention that if you could take a look at the links at the bottom of the page, I'd appreciate it!
    No pressure, but I wanted to point them out!

    One of the disadvantages of delays when making expansions, is that sometimes the interest wanes a little.
    One of the advantages of delays when making expansions, is that you get to polish everything and sometimes end up with cool bonuses like a whole new expansion in addition to the original plan.
    Another advantage is that you also get a bit of time to work on other outstanding bits and pieces. Like these...

    I've gone for a "combo Elf/Dwarf" vibe with the Border cards, along with a "Dwarves trying really hard to tart up something, but all they can do is angles" vibe with the Forge cards.
    I hope people like them.

    I look at it in a similar light to what Bludgeon mentioned, the events that caused the Cataclysm wrecked the lands substantially, but not completely. The Harbinger apocalypse, on the other hand, will literally destroy everything...no rebuilding from that.

    Just a little mention to say that I'll be making a small blog post tomorrow (which will hopefully be the last before release!) with a bit of an update with the aforementioned Realms Collection (name to be updated probably).
    The idea has changed a little since I last posted, but I believe it is for the better!
    I've decided not to rejig the rules for all of the "realms" expansions into a larger sheet format, and this mini expansion will come with rules sheets as a normal PoD product would.
    Consequently, I will not be making a box, as the rules cards will not fit in one (and it's a bit of overkill when it would likely just sit empty on a shelf anyway.
    The expansion has grown legs however, and rather than just the three endings and bonus rules, there will be an additional 32 cards to add to the "realms" expansion in varying numbers.
    After the initial plan, I thought it would be cool to make some of the cards that did not make it into the earlier two expansions available and decided on boosting the expansions to 48 cards each to match The Lost Realms.
    However, this would leave unused space on the sheets, so I decided to up all of the expansions to 52 cards each, so there will be 16 Nether cards for The Nether Realm, 12 cards for The Deep Realms (6 Tunnel and 6 Bridge) and 4 new Border cards for The Lost Realms.
    These are a mixture of existing and new cards, and should add a bit of value to the original expansions.
    So, fingers crossed that the outstanding artwork for the Forge items is not far away (it's being done physically, rather than digitally, so is taking a mite longer than expected). The Border template has not really happened, so I will probably end up using an adapted Forge template. 
    All I have to do is update the templates, add the missing art, add a bit of a credits page to the "collection" expansion rules and decide on a final name for the extras expansion and there we go.
    I hope the waiting will have been worth it!

    I no longer play without cataclysm board, ever.
    So yes, if I want to use the harbinger, it goes with the cataclysm.
    It's the second apocalypse or something whatever.

    Just a quick question regarding the current Forge deck template. It had been noted that a couple of bits were not "standard", so I tweaked the expansion icon area and the encounter number area.
     
    Better?

    Fancy getting hold of a printed version of The Lost Realms Community Expansion for Talisman when it's released?

     

              

     

    A copy of The Lost Realms, and the Polish translation for Talisman Magia i Miecz (Zapomniane Krainy) are currently being auctioned off for the Polish Charity - WOŚP that helps make life a bit more bearable for kids and older people in hospital.

    Rather than keeping Trails on the spaces indefinitely I agree that it is probably best to leave them there until they have been encountered (as in rolled on).
     
    I've added the following to the Trail card entry, but I've had to lose the picture example, though it's no big loss as I think everyone is now familiar with what constitutes a keyword!
     
    Trails remain on the space they were drawn until they have been encountered, after which they are shuffled back into the Border deck along with any other cards on the space.
     
    Also, I've changed the paragraphs in the rules relating to the regions -
     
    Together the two Realms form the long-forgotten Border Region, and can also be considered part of an adjacent Region, as detailed on page 5.
     
    and
     
    For the purposes of discarding Path cards only, the Iron Peaks is classed as being part of both the Highland Region and the Border Region, and the Greenwood Spires is classed as being part of both the Woodland Region and the Border Region.
     
    Clear enough?

    A little bit of news to keep people keen for the moment.
     
    In addition to the 6 new cards for the expansion, I've been playing about with a little something that (I hope) will add a bit of an interesting bonus to user of the Realms expansions.
     
    Back during the development of the Nether Realm, is was floated that some rules were included to use the Nether deck in a normal game of Talisman, and not being dependant on the use of Alternative Endings. Because of the space required in the rules for "repeated" items, like Endings, it was not possible however, as the budget at the time could not stretch to a third rulesheet. Something I'm glad happened in the Deep Realms!
     
    So, I'm considering rejigging the Nether Realm rulesheets to include the optional rules.
     
    Also, whilst Deep Realms was in progress, there was an Alternative Ending to be included, but again, due to space constraints it was left out. I've since rethemed it (very slightly), and will be making it available for download, along with a completely pointless bit of nonsense that I've come up with.
     
    Given that the PoD expansions came in plastic "clam shell" packaging, I thought it would be nice to design a box for the expansions to go in. If only for your shelf!
     
    So... the plan is, that when the Lost Realms is made available (no ETA as yet) there will be an small additional download to bulk out the other Realms expansions.
     
    (I hope that made sense...)
