Fantasy Flight Games announces that Talisman: The City is now available.
The City, the newest expansion for Talisman, is now available at your local retailer and our webstore! Venture into the dangerous streets and allies of this bustling metropolis, bring in bounties to get gold from the powerful guilds, and buy all manner of special items to give your characters the edge they need to win the day. The City features a supplementary game board, that fits against the main Talisman board and is entered through the City space. Beware, high walls cannot protect you from threats from within, and there are plenty of dangers brewing in the streets of the City.
Danger Awaits in the Big City
Many adventurers come to the City looking to make their fortune and take advantage of all the wonders of civilization have to offer. A new deck of city-themed Adventure cards reveal the danger that lurks just beneath the surface of the City as well as the rewards of this thriving economy.
Exciting adventures wait around every corner in the hustle and bustle of the City. Avoid the sorcerous scorn of a Grumpy Wizard, and stay on the good side of the Night Guard. Hire a Sellsword to watch your back as you fend off overgrown vermin like a Giant Rat. Trading Day lets players trade with each other no matter where they are, and making friends with an Urchin can help you navigate the City’s streets.
Of Guilds and Gold
All of this lively activity is centered around the commerce of the City, and the commerce of the City is centered around the powerful guilds. These three guilds wield their economic might to control the flow of money and the development of the City. Members of these guilds tend to stay out of everyday affairs personally, but their influence can be felt when perusing the Wanted List of available bounties at the City Gates.
If the guilds want creatures or characters tracked down and taken care of, then they’ll have a Wanted Poster displayed featuring the unlucky target. Depending on what bounty he has decided to pick up, a player can defeat a certain type of enemy for extra gold. Perhaps a local inventor has been creating mayhem with his Constructs. Defeat a Clockwork Dragon and turn in the trophy for seven gold. If the Assassin’s Guild is tired of all the do-gooders in town there may be a Wanted Poster for any character with Good alignment. Take out a fellow player with that alignment, and you can roll a die and gain to result in gold for your troubles. Bounties and the influence of the guild are explained in greater depth in our preview.
