    Hi buddy it was a 2nd edition rule (although I'm not saying that isn't a rule in 3rd )
     
    I was thinking about playing buy those rules a few games ago...but then by the latter part of the game I was in the dungeon with horse, warhorse and mule with loads of objects and utilising the horse's roll 2 dice for movement ability; having a grand old time in there...and i thought.....screw that rule right up its arse!!! hahahahaha

    Can we get some kind of "Voracious Dog" card in the ________ realms expansion? To think of it, Talisman has everything except for a dog cards.
     
    Phantom hound and Faithful hound are the only two I can think of.
     
    "Voracious Hound." Follower.
     
    The Voracious Hound chews up one of your items at random, then becomes a follower. At any time you may feed it one of your items for +3 Strength.
     
          another use for water bottles.

    chemical22 reacted to jackyboy in Painting your Figures - Advise please   
    Well I've finally had time to sit down with a friend and spend a night learning from him how to paint a figure! I can tell you it was fun and a great learning curve for me. My friend had plenty of paints so we had a good set of colours to choose from and get the right mix for base - highlight - inks etc
     
    Here is my first attempt at painting a figure, a cheap orc from em4 miniatures
     

     
    Mine is the figure on the left, my friend did the one on the right as he guided me through all the stages. It most certainly isn't amazing but I am soo much more impressed with it than I ever thought I would be :D

    I'll give it a whirl.  I've heard good things about their customer service.  I'll be sure to include my smug dog after her meal...

    Here is my email.  I'll let you know how it goes.

    Hi,

    I’m an active member in the forum community for Talisman and I thought I would give this request a whirl, because I’ve been told about what great customer service Fantasy Flight has.

    Let me explain...

    On a very dark day last week in Canada, a travesty occurred.  

    We began with what appeared to be a typical massive 6 player, 6 hour game of Talisman.   Most expansions were on the board and the drinks were pouring and the friendly insults were flying.   The lowly Merchant was amassing a fortune in gold… buying his way to swift victory, only to be defeated by the Conjurer right at the end by a ping to the head by the Crown of Command.   I lost that game…. but that is not the travesty.

    We packed up for the night, telling tall tales of the adventure just passed - when two lonely cards slipped away and made their way onto the cold floor.  Admittedly, my otherwise keen 1 AM vision was poor - so there the cards rested until daybreak.

    In the morning I awoke to my wife’s echoing shouts…. “Did you leave something out last night?!!”

    Startled, I ran down as fast as my feet could carry me.   I glanced on the couch and saw it.  I nearly shed a tear…

    There sitting on the couch, were the tattered remnants of a Bog Terrain Card and the Shattered Worlds 6th omen.  Just feet away, was the smug jackle-like smile of our beloved dog, Princess Leia.

    I mourned.

    I’ve attached proof of this horrible Event.  It appears the Harbinger visited us that night.

    While I understand it is not your policy to replace damaged goods after purchase, I thought I would try to see if the makers would see mercy on my soul and replace the missing cards, so that once again, I will be able to love my dog without endlessly recounting this tragic night. 
     
    Again - it is one Bog Terrain and the Shattered World 6th Omen.

    I appreciate your consideration and I hope to hear from you   Regardless, I look forward to years more of enjoyment from your outstanding products!

    I'd still try and contact FFG and see if they can help.

    I know they now say that they can't help with components that were damaged after purchase, but they have done in the past.
    It's worth a shot for the comedy value of attaching that photo to the claim. There's no denying that it is a genuine case!

    Shattered World Omens 1-5 are taking it pretty hard.  Omen 7 couldn't care less since the world is over anyways.  He's always been the black sheep of the family.

    To me, it's all about what creates the most fun.  That is the purpose of the game.

    Oddly, it is quite fun having a second dice off vs two tied players - anticipation builds, especially if you continue to roll ties.
     
    Now if only I could get my wife to play...

    Thank you, Cruan and chemical22.
     
    Cruan, I really like your point about 4-player games. That makes sense.
     
    chemical, hubby likes your response, lol.
     
    We'll probably just re-roll, since people seem legitimately divided on the semantics here.

    Well, good or bad, both sides can admit that it is the least liked. That is reason enough to keep it last on the agenda. Why take the gamble when the other expansions are a sure thing?

    chemical22 reacted to Artaterxes in The Harbinger is coming - New expansion announced!   
    Don't forget that when you land on the Harbinger himself, you can send him to any space in any Region. If you summon the Harbinger while deep in the Highland, it might be too inconvenient to run to the Outer Region. However, you can land on the Harbinger to send him away to the Region of your choice. Likewise, if you are not using any corners and the Harbinger is harassing you in the Outer Region, you can send the Harbinger to the Middle Region if you land on him. This also makes the game more competitive, as when someone is near the Harbinger, they can send him to your Region, even if you are on opposite corners of the land. Landing on the Harbinger is an important strategy!
     
    The Harbinger expansion at first was something I thought I would only play once in a while. Because the Harbinger can chase you and force you to draw from his deck, I thought it would take away from the exploration of other decks. But I found the opposite was true. I found that I was exploring Regions I normally would not, such as entering the Woodland when normally I would stay in the Outer Region. The Harbinger expansion actually caused greater exploration than before! Combined with the amount of strategy and competition it offers, in addition to the four possible end of world scenarios, it's something that I think I will always play with! It's a real game changer.

    Me and a friend also had our butts kicked.
    We used the Armageddon Omen deck and it got to a point where my character got killed, and we were on the last omen.
    We agreed that my friend would be the winner rather than carrying on.
     
    I reckon players would have a better chance if other regions, and/or the Dragon expansion, were used.

    Played it this weekend for the first time... our entire group got smoked by the Harbringer with the first 4-6 rounds.   3 Events in a row...  between the omens and the events, we all lost 3 lives in 3 turns.  Ouch.
