Talisman: The Cataclysm
Product code: AC9759
Decades ago an apocalypse destroyed the world, wrecking its cities,
ravaging the land, and devastating the population. Now, after more than
a generation, a new age dawns with The Cataclysm, an expansion for
Talisman Revised 4th Edition. People are returning to establish
settlements, nature is evolving in bizarre, unprecendented ways, and
traces of the former civilization can be found everywhere. This is a
time of chaos and possibility, of challenges and heroism.
The Cataclysm introduces a new center board that opens up a reinvented,
post-apocalyptic realm for your exploration. Those brave enough to
inhabit this world are brought to life in the Denizens deck, while the
Remnants deck fills spaces with lost treasures, broken artifacts, and
the lingering after-effects of the apocalypse. Five more characters now
seek the Crown of Command, including the Black Knight who once menaced
the Middle Region, and four alternative endings shape your quests in
this ever-changing world.
Some of the Characters who first sought the Crown of Command may
undertake that quest again in this altered, post-apocalyptic world.
Competing with them in The Cataclysm are five others who have never
sought it before. Some of them have long inhabited the realm. For
instance, the Black Knight has abandoned his castle in the Middle Region
to claim greater power. He now rides through Talisman, forcing the other
Characters he meets to give him gold or else he’ll take one of their
lives. The Mutant has also lived in this realm her whole life, and also
remained there through its darkest times, but she is no longer the human
that she once was. Magical energies that flared and fluctuated during
the apocalypse infected her body so thoroughly that her form, Strength,
Craft, and fate have continually changed.
Others have no memories of what it was like before the apocalypse. The
Scavenger grew up during the decades that followed and learned how to
survive by staying in motion and collecting whatever Objects she could
find. The most valuable ones she stashes away so that they cannot be
stolen. Youngest of all is the Arcane Scion , born during the outburst
of magical energies that transformed the Mutant. Unlike the Mutant, who
cannot fully control her mutations, the Arcane Scion has harnessed those
energies, using them to wield Magic Objects and cast Spells.
