Has anyone heard anything RE: the next corner expansion? I've been harboring a desperate hope that another corner-board will be released in time for Xmas. Anyone got any dirt on this?

Did you want my The Highland expansion? That's a corner thingy, but I have to warn you, it doesn't add much to the game other than a couple of new characters and a region that nobody seems to go to.

No idea but I want to start a rumour that it will either be "The City" or a large "Woodland".

I had this problem as well but then I measured the board + expansions, went to the carpenter and said "please make a wooden plate of these measures" and the problem was solved

Then I went to a builder and said please build me a room that will fit this table I had made for the Talisman board.

And then you said please don't make a Sci-fi Timescape Expansion for Talisman, as it doesn't belong in the Fantasy Realm lol

Honestly, they probably won't. Didn't I hear about a standalone game based off of Talisman but set in the WH40K universe? They will make that instead, and someone will come up with rules to use it as an expansion for Talisman.

Actually, it looked rather likely that it will be usable as a Talisman expansion as is out of the box, while still being a standalone game.

Very odd seing as its the best place to go in the early game for cheap items and things to fight that are reasonable.

As far as I know, FFG is still planning on releasing more expansions at some point in the future. With John Goodenough no longer at FFG, there might be a delay as they move the project to someone else.

If there is any chance of something being published by this X-mas, FFG will probably say something about it at GenCon. Look for notes from people who go to Mr. Petersen's Flightplan Report there. If you know someone going, or going yourself, ask about it at the Flightplan Report.

I actually like the Timescape Expansion (to 1st/2nd Edition).

I've never actually played it, as I got into Talisman with Revised 4th. It's just my understanding that Timescape is much loathed.

As there are rumors about an FFG 40K Talisman game, there will probably be rules for combining these games.

For Talisman 4th, I'd prefer a game without SciFi meeple

Most people I know banned timescape from 2nd edition because the characters weren't even remotely fair.
