A Scanning Project Update

Hello, hello! After some networking with the community on Facebook, I was able to locate and connect two wonderful people who will be donating and scanning the Tales of Talislanta. I don’t have a date for release as there are still plenty of variables in play, but I’m crossing my fingers in hopes of a February release. We still need several Talislanta books before our library is complete, however what remains is pretty darn rare.

If anybody owns a copy of one of these books and would consider allowing it to be scanned, please Contact Us. The books remaining are:

Talislanta Guida del Viaggiatore
Talislanta Traveler’s Guide
There was only one book published for the Italian version, the Talislanta Guida del Viaggiatore by a company called 3d6. It was based off the 3e Talislanta rules by Wizards of the Coast. Marques recently posted a link for the archived Talislanta in Italiano website and using that, and eBay Italy, as a reference, I was able to deduce it was based off the 3e Talislanta rules. The Italian website has links to several of the old Talislanta websites that were based off the 3e rules. Also, the Italian website was last updated in 1998, which predates the release of 4e Talislanta by Shooting Iron Design.

Die Chroniken von Talislanta
The Chronicles of Talislanta
Die Chroniken von Talislanta was the last German Talislanta book published, and it was published by Fantasywelt Verlag in 1992. This was just prior to the release of the third edition of Talislanta, The Talislanta Guidebook by Wizards of the Coast. Although this book was translated well, there seemed to be a few printing errors concerning some of the images.
