Relic is "A Game of Heroic Struggle in the Warhammer 40,000 Universe for 2 to 4 Players" that uses the Talisman Game System.
Other quotes mentioned are "Out this Summer" and "Unpainted Busts", which probably means it should be a favourite for a Gen Con release and will use miniatures like those in Chaos in the Old World.
Sometimes I even update my Facebook page for the site!
Let's hope Relic is playable with Talisman. Maybe it's a kind of Timescape.
FFG please give us more information about Relic!
Nice to see the talisman word on the corner of the box.
Maybe we don't get a timescape for talisman, and instead, ffg release a new game that looks like timescape(science fiction) with the talisman mechanic.
But i don't buy it
Timescape fans will be probably happy with this new game
Considering the effort they're putting into Science Fiction settings since 2010 (Ad Astra, Gears of War, Infiltration, Merchant of Venus, Nexus Ops, Rex, Sky Traders), the company could easily change their name into Sci-Fi Flight Games.
This game might be a good idea, if market researches suggest there's an increasing interest for Sci-Fi while Fantasy is losing its appeal. The post LOTR movies era has finished and maybe the general pessimism around the world makes people think about alternative futures (or dystophian presents) rather than just dreaming of another universe.
Not sure if I want another game with the Talisman system in my collection, I will probably spend my money for Talisman expansions and Wiz-War.
A wizard is never too late. Nor is he early. He arrives precisely when he means to.
I'm excited for this BUT I am only going to buy it on one condition: it work with Talisman.
Why? Because why would I want a game that shares the rules with Talisman but is not compatabile AND only allows for up to 4 players. That isn't enough for my player group.

I hope Relic is not just Talisman with different names and pictures for cards. I would like to see a game using the some new mechanics and dimensions to the existing rules. As long as the game is sorta different than I am sold. If the only difference is the tavern is now the 'Space Tavern' and the city is known as the 'Hive City', than to hell with it. Talisman does not need Monopoly-esque versions.
Honor the craft of death.
I only wish that the board will be as big as the Talisman's one.Similar to Timescape but on a bigger scale.With better spaces and characters.Also a different way to move around the board.Time will tell.
I'm hoping it will be compatible with Talisman the way the different Munchkin card games are compatible with each other. They all have different settings and specific mechanics but the goal of the game is always the same and with a set of "crossover" rules you can play all of them together.
I hope it won't be a carbon copy of Talisman but the size and general types of the cards will be the same, Characters will have the same stats, etc.
All there is left is to wait - the hardest challenge of all ;)
Nre'fa-o hunt brothers.
It will probably be compatible.I can't see why not.Relic is the answer for Timescape lovers who wished it as an expansion.Instead it's a game of its own and I think it's better this way.Hopefully without compromising the mixing compatibility.And also a chance for FFG to make another game in the 40k universe.
Any more news on Relic? I was kinda hoping it might have blipped on FFGs news page by now at the very least.
If wishes for the game still count, I'm hoping for 'not Timescape'. I'd like this to be a stand alone game that runs the same rule system as Talisman, but with a completely different board configuration. Sure substitute a sacred chapter relic for the Crown of Command so the game plays the same, but fill the board with 40k locations. No crossover for me, thanks.

I like it!!
Hmm, Could be that the Warhammer 40k topic will draw more of the warhammer 40k fans to the "Talisman" theme since Talisman in its own way is more linked with warhammer fantasy.
Anyway, I love the idea and will be looking forward to more news over the summer!
It's not being marketed as a Talisman expansion, so I'm sure it can be played as a stand-alone game.
Still, it would be great if it could also be combined with Talisman.
I wonder if it has the same card format as the adventure cards.
If it follows the same rules how you must encounter adventure cards, then maybe that people can use those cards with the old timescape board.
It use at least the talisman game system..
