Hi,

I'm really curious about this game but I'm not into art that gives me terrifying nightmares (there's enough horror in real life, thank you). I had actually gotten Talisman 3rd Edition but all the skulls and demonic images freaked me out and I sold it right away. There's not much on the Geek in terms of pics of the cards, but the card for altar-ego and the other nasty (in that one pic) are about at my limit for that kind of stuff in my house. Does it get any more scary/gory than that? If it's just those two I can probably handle it.

Thanks

There are a couple of vampire lords, a few demons, a succubus, an incubus, and a couple more ghost variants (I think a Wight.) There are quite a few undead and demons, as there are weapon effects that harm only those types.

The demons are the typical big beefy guys with red eyes and ram's horns.

I can't think of any gore. But I do think there are some skull faces on the demons. One of the magic items is a skull.

Perhaps I'm a bad judge of how shocking the images are, however. (Brief glance around the living room.) Yep, bad judge. The artwork strikes me as roughly similar in style to Talisman 3rd, but without the obsession that game's artist had with putting skulls on EVERYTHING.

Moo,
Frank

I'd say less risque than Blue Moon, less realistic than Runebound, less focus on occult/death than many games.

These images are pretty representative and they are larger than lifesize on my screen.

I've played Prophecy with kids (7 & up) with no qualms and I usually have qualms about that sort of stuff. If you are OK with Hunting Party, you will be fine with Prophecy.

I should point out that the succubus has topless nudity. It's the only card that has any but since you are sensitive to demonic images does nude women also cause problems? Not sure if you have kids.
