Rediscover Talisman as it recovers from the Apocalypse – The Cataclysm now available

April 17th, 2016

The Cataclysm expansion for Talisman is now available from Fantasy Flight Games.

In The Cataclysm, the realm of Talisman as you once knew it has disappeared. A new center board opens up a mysterious and transformed space full of possibilities and perils. Once fiery, the Inner Region has been frozen over. The Black Knight has abandoned his Castle and now seeks the Crown of Command. The old stone Sentinel that guarded the Middle Region has fallen, and a demon has taken its place, inhabiting the crumbling ruins of its predecessor’s body. And as people return to the realm, it continues to change. You and your fellow travelers may participate in Rebuilding a town or road. You may even begin to transform, if you acquire a Mutation Spell.

Amid all the change, Traces of the past are ubiquitous. Some are material, like Salvage or a Rusty Boomstick.  Others are less so: sometimes an Astral Spirit of someone slain in the apocalypse may appear, momentarily resurrecting a Stranger who has long wandered in silence and death. Through an Astral Rift created by cosmic energies lingering from the apocalypse, a Place from the past may randomly return in a new site.

The Cataclysm expansion arrives for Talisman

December 16th, 2015

Fantasy Flight Games is proud to announce The Cataclysm, an expansion for Talisman that takes place one generation after a terrible apocalypse has devastated the land.

The Cataclysm brings to life a realm that is built upon, but utterly unlike, the Talisman of old. A new game board replaces that of the base game, with every space from the Fields to the Valley of Fire altered by the apocalypse and its aftermath. Remnants of former civilization are scattered everywhere from the Desert to the Graveyard. Much of the former population either died or fled, and only now are people returning to establish permanent settlements. Five more characters enter the quest for the Crown of Command alongside those, like the Elf, who sought it before, and four new alternative endings reinvent that quest for these post-apocalyptic times.
