The endless struggle between the spirits of light and the forces of darkness is escalating. Mighty heroes are called to choose their alignment and fight to prove themselves worthy, for Judgement Day approaches...and war between the heavens and the abyss is about to begin.
Fantasy Flight Games is pleased to announce the upcoming release of The Sacred Pool! This latest expansion for the classic board game Talisman brings new excitement and tension to your quest for the Crown of Command.
Four new playable characters join the race for power, and never-before-seen Alternate Ending cards ensure ample replayability. Meanwhile, Stable cards bring you useful equestrian followers, and Quest Reward cards give new incentives to complete the perilous Warlock Quests! In addition, The Sacred Pool presents new reasons to watch your character’s alignment.
The inclusion of Neutral Alignment cards allow you to follow new paths in Talisman and possibly receive greater rewards...if you choose the right side.
The Sacred Pool introduces a number of optional variant rules that can be combined individually or as a whole to your Talisman games. If you would prefer a new, versatile end game, then simply include the Alternate Ending cards.
One of the most exciting new additions that The Sacred Pool brings to Talisman are the Quest Reward cards. Previous expansions presented more ways to receive a variety of quests, however until now the ultimate reward for doing quests did not offer any reason to continue questing more than once in a single game. Quest Reward cards provide tempting new motivations to undertake the Warlock Quests, giving players new powers and treasures.
In addition, The Sacred Pool presents new reasons to watch your character’s alignment. The inclusion of Neutral Alignment cards allow you to follow new paths in Talisman and possibly receive greater rewards...if you choose the right side.
The Sacred Pool comes with 4 new characters, 72 new Adventure cards, 16 new Spell cards, 24 Quest Reward cards, and much more! Don’t be the last one to reach the Crown of Command and glimpse into the sacred waters to see if you are worthy of power...
Check back often as we reveal more information on The Sacred Pool!
Talisman is a classic board game of adventuring through the lands in search of the powerful Crown of Command. Take control of one of 14 different characters from a powerful Troll to a magical Druid, and enter a beloved world of fantasy adventure!
I hope they include a few more dungeon and highland cards to have more alignment focused cards in those regions!
I also hope they include more alignment cards because 4 isnt enough for a full game!
Another Talisan expansion so soon. Sweet! Well done FFG :)
Great news! I can not wait. FFG speed up! Adding Stable cards introduce City as a next expansion. But what about dark and light fate? Do we have to wait until next small expansion?
I guess it will come in October (6 month after the last expansion)
Well, I guess now we will have something to do while we wait for those Forest and City expansions... I am intrigued about the whole alignment thing, though. Might end up as an interesting game mechanic indeed.
This has a lot of potential: ideas about horses and neutral alignment have floated around house rules forever! Woohoo!
Oh yea......when when when.
I really enjoy the mini expansions as well as the board expansions. I can hardly wait.
looks good...although I dont think this will top The Reaper expansion as my favorite mini expansion...
