Through a veil of mist…

There will be a new Talislanta book coming out!

Tentatively called Talislanta: Savage Land, the book will deal with Talislanta’s historical past – the time period just after the Great Disaster. Gone are the sky-cities, the nations ruled by magic. Now only might and survival rule the lives of the inhabitants of the Savage Land of Talislanta.

SMS is directing the show, of course, and John Harper has been signed on to handle system intricacies. The new book will still use the Action Table, but one goal is to simplify the system as much as possible. A writing team is still being assembled, but Mark Williams and Doug Bramlett are already on-board. All new art will be commissioned for T:SL and the goal is to produce the final book(s) in full color. Adam Black is going to be part of the art team with more artists to follow.

In the not too distant future, the writing team will be taking some ideas from Tal fans. Yes, that means you!

More updates as T:SL develops!

    This is just all around terrific news. More Tal in any form is great news.

    Now, where’s my Talislanta game that plays like Skyrim? :)

    Definitely sounds fantastic. Can’t wait to see what comes of this.

    I have history notes leftover from a proposed Quan sourcebook from the old Shootingiron days, so I guess what I am saying is that I’d really like to see that area of the content flushed out!

    I also highly recommend watching the BBC ‘Lost Kingdoms of Africa’ series as a source of ideas.
