    Dungeon Crawler Jack got a reaction from 0beron in The Cataclysm new expansion is announced   
    I agree with your wife's perspective, buddy, Harbinger played with the Omens Dynamic and him scooting around the regions is a big exercise in 'Get Rekt'. I could only tolerate him as an expansion by making him a stranger card that replaces all cards drawn with harbinger deck cards, added to all decks at a ratio I worked out (which meant printing a lot of homebrew cards). The Omens I just don't play, they break the game (meaning about a quarter of harbinger deck has to be placed aside). Worst Expansion ever.
    My plans for Cataclysm is to reintroduce the Omens as a trigger for replacing the main board and wipe all cards from it once it hits. But I haven't yet seen everything in the pack and don't know when my pre-order's coming. So my mods are gonna have to wait until I see the playing experience untampered with.

    I love that idea, FFG should make that card or something similar in the future.

    Ok, I just played the Merchant and he lasted 4 turns.... no joke, a 4 turn death.

    He gained the Deathstalker as a follower and then lost a fight with the CLOCKWORK CABINET

    The CLOCKWORK CABINET - This man was killed by FURNITURE at the start of his adventure. This is HUMILIATING

    Finally got mine on the 4th, believe them bad reviews you hear about FRP.

    Still got a problem with the Possessed, on the face of it reasonably powerful, but the wording of his life gaining abilities is 'replenish' in both cases, his life value being 5 meaning he's stuck at a max strength value of 5 - Whole game. If games drag on, and we level up to OP stats, he's at a massive disadvantage. And he only starts at craft 2, so it'll take ages to level that up.

    To even make his abilities make sense I have to custom him to allow him to gain strength trophies as well and trade them in, then add his strength to his life value for his attack roll in battle.

    That's a really mean enemy, that Venomous Dragon. Glad we have not met him (yet).
     
     
    Not sure if it would've made a difference in your case, but you might have read the card wrong - you only lose the 2 additional lives if you are defeated.

    Back "on topic" - got another one, though this one happened long ago so I don't really have that many details anymore.
     
    The game had been in progress for quite some time.
    I was playing as the Cleric and doing okay-ish.
     
    However, that soon changed for the worse as I drew the False Prophet. (You can't use fate.)
     
    I then proceeded to not be able to land on the city (to get rid of him) for a long time,
    got turned into a toad by a copied spell, had all my fate stolen
    and met an enemy I could not beat that took 2 of my 3 remaining lives.
     
    During another characters turn, a plague finished me off.
     
    That's what you call a heavy hit by fate.

    I'm guessing that means that you are not a fan of using the Dragon expansion in such a way where after you pass through the Valley of Fire then you have to ascend the Dragon Tower?

    I don't remember which character I was playing.  It doesn't matter.  This was a six-person game.  I was the fifth player to take a turn.
     
    On the fourth player's turn, someone landed the Reaper on him.  He rolled a 5 and moved it to me.
     
    I rolled a 1.  I spent a fate.  I rolled a 1 again.
     
    I was killed without ever taking a turn.
     
    I started a new character and went on to "win" the game, but everyone kept reminding me that I was the first to die, so I didn't really win.

    Once upon a game of Talisman, there were rumors of a Sacred Pool throughout the land.
    Brave adventurers began their journey, as did the Chivalric Knight.
     
    On his first turn, he went to the Hidden Valley and got ambushed by a Swamp Siren and another
    (Craft 6) Spirit. Needless to say, he had no chance of winning.
     
    Unfortunately, the Swamp Siren keeps you on her space if you lose, so that you have to engage her again.
    After 4 turns, there was no Chivalric Knight any more.
    A cursing spirit still haunts the place where he met his demise until this day.

    Sure, I think everyone agrees that a strong character is not the a guarantee for victory but that's not what defines a strong (OP) character. 
    A strong character has an advantageous starting point and The Alchemist certainly fits that description..
     
    On my list (back on topic):
    Alchemist
    Prophetess
     
    I don't have much fun at all playing these characters. Winning feels like "meh.." since I can't really attribute the win to my gaming, feels more like I won due to the unbalanced character.

  24. Like

    Madcap
    Start: Hidden Valley
    Alignment: Neutral*

    2 Strength
    3 Craft
    4 Life
    3 Fate
     
    Abilities:
    You begin the game with one spell.
     
    --------------------------------------------
     
    You may not change your alignment, you always remain neutral.

    --------------------------------------------
     
    When you are about to engage a character in battle roll one die:
    1-2) Their alignment changes to evil
    3-4) Their alignment changes to neutral
    5-6) Their alignment changes to good

    If that character's new alignment prevents use of any objects or followers these are all dropped before the battle.

    --------------------------------------------
     
    You may ignore any alignment-dependent places or cards and choose the result you wish. You may acquire objects and followers regardless of what alignment the card specifies, when you acquire objects or followers requiring contradictory alignments, you need not discard any objects or followers.
     
    --------------------------------------------
     
    You may only visit the Chapel and the Graveyard as a Neutral character.

    I think this guy is pretty balanced now, he's maybe going to find the start of the game tough, but as he builds up objects and followers he's going to be very intimidating, and of course he's not restricted from carrying anything ever. With his alignment changer ability, he's a worry for other characters he can encounter as he might force them to drop a few cards they may be relying on.
