4 Foreign Language Tal Books Acquired

Today I went to check the mail and what did I see? Lo and behold! Not one foreign language book in waiting, but three! Tis sent by SMS himself, a gift unto me, to do with whatever I please. Though it brings tears to my eyes and places a frown upon my face, I will take a razor blade to these rare beauties, and scan them with haste. Now our Library is but one book away from being complete. Is anybody willing to donate $10 via PayPal, so that we can finally achieve this feat?

What is the $10 for, you ask? This, of course. I will be personally scanning these books as soon as time permits. They are in amazing shape and soon they will live forever in the digital world. These surely come from SMS’s personal collection and this scanning would not be possible without him, so please make sure you give him thanks on Facebook, Google+, Yahoo Mailing List, or in the comments section below. I tip my hat to you, good sir. Thank you so very much.

EDIT: Timothy Hidalgo has donated $10.83 so that I could purchase Die Flora und Fauna von Talislanta. A true Talislanta fan and samaritan, timothy has helped us achieve quite the milestone. More on that to come!

Talislanta Guida del Viaggiatore
Talislanta Traveler’s Guide

Awaiting Scanning
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

Awaiting Scanning
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.
