Foreign Editions

As Marques already reported here, the Italian and German versions of Talislanta are available for us to add the website if we can get our hands on a copy and scan it. Unfortunately, the French version of Talislanta is still currently under license and we are unable to add any of this line to the Talislanta Library. I’ve been doing some research on the Italian and German versions because I am fascinated by the idea that one of my favorite games is being represented in a foreign language. Armed with Google Translate and Yahoo! Babel Fish, I have discovered the following information about the foreign editions of Talislanta and would like to share it with other Talislanta fans.

Talislanta Guida del Viaggiatore
Currently Being Scanned By: Marques
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.

The German version of Talislanta is based off the 2e Talislanta rules, and three books were published for the German line. Spielerhandbuch und Leitfaden für den Spielleiter (Second Edition) is the first book and corresponds directly to English version of the 2e rules, the Talislanta Handbook and Campaign Guide (Second Edition). It was published in 1991 by a German company called Fantasywelt Verlag.
Talislanta Die Flora und Fauna

Talislanta Die Flora und Fauna is the second book published in the German Talislanta game line. It was also published in 1991 by Fantasywelt Verlag. This book directly corresponds to the English book A Naturalist’s Guide to Talislanta.
