Set in the world of iconic quest game Talisman, Pegasus Spiele announced plans for the RPG in 2018 as part of a licensing agreement with Games Workshop (see “Pegasus Spiele Licenses World of 'Talisman'”). The Talisman Adventures RPG core book includes everything necessary for players and game masters, including an immersive tutorial adventure.
Like the board game, the RPG features evil wizards, imps, witches, knights standing on bridges, dragons, werewolves and more. Players take roles as humans, elves, sprites, ghouls or trolls traveling The Realm, fighting evil and collecting Talismans. The game system requires three six-sided dice. One those three dice is christened the Kismet Dice, which influences a player’s Fate, and if a 1 or 6 is rolled on the Kismet Die, there will be additional impacts on the player’s result.
The game is for 3 or more players, ages 14 and up, and plays in 90 minutes or more. The 244-page hardcover has an MSRP of $29.99. A limited edition core book will also be available, but details were not released at this time.
