Talisman Legendary Tales

The first of four new games based on the Talisman universe to be released by Pegasus Spiele, Talisman Legendary Tales is described as a children's cooperative adventure game.

The remaining three games, an expandable card game, a role-playing game and a dice game will follow, most likely in 2019.

Many centuries ago, legendary smiths forged the Crown of Command, a magical artefact of immense power. Whoever wears the Crown of Command will hold power over all of the land.

Decades ago, a powerful wizard sealed the Crown of Command behind the Portal of Power to prevent evil forces from obtaining it. Only those who possess one of the legendary Talismans may pass through this Portal to reach the Crown.

Over the years five of the Talismans have disappeared. Enemy forces now seek to find them in order to seize the Crown of Command for themselves. Brave Heroes that you are, you have banded together to go on a quest to retrieve all five Talismans - and thereby stop the evil power behind these enemy forces from ruling the world.

This task won’t be easy as finding each Talisman is an epic adventure in itself. However, if you work together using everyone’s abilities and helping one another when you can, you will surely succeed.

The players must work together as an adventure party to recover the 5 legendary Talismans that have been lost. During each adventure the party will endeavour to recover one of the lost Talismans. The adventures must be played in order. You may repeat adventures and you may play one or more adventures in a game session.

Over the course of this story you will travel across a wondrous land and will have exciting adventures in which you must make important decisions and defend yourself against cruel Enemies.

As an adventure party, you will succeed in each adventure once you have completed the final task and have recovered the Talisman. Be careful; you have only a limited amount of time!

I'm not sure what universe the designers live in, but Talisman is already basically a children's game as it is.

Two phrases I have a hard time squaring with Talisman are "cooperative" and "limited amount of time".

Looks like Michael has another kid's game to add to his list.

Talisman was originally designed for older kids. Too much reading necessary to label it a "Children's Game."

Seems like it's going to be different from Talisman? It's kind of surprising that GW licensed this to other publisher.

Weirdly, it’s designed by the dudes that made Die Kutschfahrt zur Teufelsburg. Michael Palm also did that pretty dumb Dark Eye adventure card game Aventuria.

Could be neat.

Pegasus Spiele did the German edition of Talisman, and was the distributor for the English Edition in Europe, so the license isn’t so surprising.

I'm sure it could be good, but Talisman is a garbage license (not necessarily garbage game YMMV). I mean, you think Terrinoth is generic...

It has nostalgia value and the timing is right. Talisman is celebrating it's 35th anniversary, which means people who played it when they were young have kids that are the right age for this new game.
