  1. Thank you! I haven't been able to find anywhere yet that will print the Character and Alternate Ending cards yet, so I ended up printing them at home on plain white cardstock. It isn't perfect, but good enough to act as a placeholder until I find a better solution. If you find anything suitable, please let us know! 👍
  2. Has anyone tried to re-pose/modify the mini for Jedi Luke? It kind of bugs me that his artwork pose is much more dynamic than the mini itself.

    Board but with symbols

    Hi Bludgeon, this work in incredible and I was hoping to create a double-sided neoprene mat (via Deepcut Studios) by using the main board and Cataclysm boards for each side. Do you have the high-res artwork that you're willing to share/PM/point me in the right direction? Or could you let me know how you came about getting it? Corner boards and Dragon Inner Regions also welcome! 😊 If they are PSD files that's fine, as I have Photoshop and don't mind editing the Polish text to English (unless you've already done it?). Either way, any help is very much appreciated.
  4. I'm surprised to hear you weren't happy with the cards. I've had 3 orders this year from Make Playing Cards and aside from them being a shade darker, I've been really happy with each one. Also sorry to hear you were disappointed with the boards, they do look very good in the photos.
  5. Wow! The quality on those looks incredible. I’d love to see them in more detail once you have your hands on them. The artwork looks so fluid on the boards too, very professional.
  6. When you process an order there is a little checkbox (can't remember at which stage) that asks that the work isn't copyrighted to anyone else etc. You just need to ensure that you've checked that box. As you're printing with personal use in mind, you shouldn't have any issues.

    Alternate Ending - Demons and Dragons

    I see where you're coming from. I added the clarification to avoid the "so can I capture this regular dragon?" question. Although rule 3 does seem to cover that base - I'll consider removing rule 4. I've not seen this before, why the * (asterisk)? Agreed, I'll change that. Thanks! I've found that our group end up being a little overpowered at the 3-hour mark (if we don't battle each other much) and the regular endings were getting a little stale. I wanted something challenging without being over the top, but something that people could work towards from the beginning. It puts players under pressure to seek out the D&D cards, knowing they need to defeat them to win the game, while also knowing they could lose and spawn another card (which would potentially remove a useful card from the board). The mechanic for drawing cards whenever a player loses a life came about due to wanting to try a new way of drawing cards for players to encounter. Then I thought about linking this to an alternate ending without them being regular Adventure cards, so that they didn't get lost in the 400+ card Adventure deck I have. Finally, the reason I wanted to "discard any other cards there" when a D&D card is placed, was purely to keep the board fresh. Sometimes Talisman can get boring when the same cards stay on the board for the whole game and block potential spaces to draw something new and exciting.
  8. Hi everyone, I've created an alternate ending that focusses on summoning enemies (by losing a life), capturing (by killing the enemy) and delivering (reaching the Crown of Command with 'x' amount of enemies). On paper I think this is a challenging win condition designed for the more experienced player, however I would appreciate input on what I've created so far, along with observations of any glaring errors or balance issues. I don't tend to play with the corner boards, so this ending has been designed with the standard board in mind. Link to Demon and Dragon enemy cards: https://ibb.co/album/m96kVa
  9. Now you've said it, the card backs seem so simple now... thank you! ? Input would be really appreciated on the endings, as things that sounded fun in theory, might end up being complete trash on the table. My intention for these endings was for them to be played without any of the corner boards and using the regular main board.
  10. That’s correct, the dragons are to go with the Dragon Hunt ending. I’ll edit to make the post clearer. I just used the Grilipus card back as I’m not sure how to import custom backs into Strange Eons and not very familiar with creating custom backs in general. Thank you for the suggested image though, I love it! When I get more cards printed (stable/spells/quests) I may end up reprinting the Dragon Lords anyway, as I don’t yet know how balanced that ending or those enemies are yet. Likewise with the other endings, none are tested and I’m very open to any opinions on balance or gameplay issues that I may have overlooked.
  11. Ok. So I’ve tried to upload all the images again, but this time from a different source. Has this helped at all? Can people see the images?

    Talisman: The Hungry Forest

    The theme here is fantastic. I love the flower mechanic, very well thought out!

    Talisman: The Clockwork City

    I think the concept is fantastic. For some reason when I read “moving city”, Howl’s Moving Castle came to mind. I think the card front does complement the back and fits thematically with your vision. Im sure you’re already aware, but if you’re looking for clockwork artwork, check out the Dwemer stuff from The Elder Scrolls Legends card game. I can find you a link if you need it.

    my stuff just arrived! :D

    Bludgeon, as per usual... very good work! Your dedication on expanding this game that we all love is fantastic, which in turn inspired me to do the same. I’ve only expanded on Adventure cards (200+ of them!) which I detailed in my own thread and I’m very happy with the results. However I’ve also been working on my own alt endings and more steeds/spells/quests to add more variety. I haven’t dived into creating more characters yet, but that’s on the to-do list. Anyway... I just wanted to say how good your work is and that I really enjoy seeing your content. P.S. I’m totally stealing your wound cards, such an amazing idea! ?
  15. I don't have much luck trying to link from Dropbox... I've tried another source, can you see them now?
