Monday, January 5, 2015 is back in business!

Peaceful Mandalan
Turns out it was a simple issue, easily rectified.

I really must preach the book of Talislanta more often. I forget how much I have loved this game over the years. Simple rules (one chart handles all actions), 100+ Playable Archetypes with dozens of original races (No ELVES!) set in a post-apocalyptic fantasy world directly inspired by Jack Vance's Dying Earth. It completely blew my mind as a teenager and was my gateway into the weird and gothic realms of Moorcock, Howard, Leiber, Ashton Smith, Burroughs, Wolfe and more!

The author and creator of the game, Stephan Michael Sechi has graciously allowed all of the works (almost all, a few books have not been scanned yet) to be turned into free PDFs. So, if you're a fan of esoteric rpgs, or are looking for something new to spice up your game, then you owe it to yourself to check these out.

And I'm not saying this just because I was lucky enough to write one of the official adventures.

NOTE: I have literally only just discovered this gallery. It contains dozens of images that were only in the French Edition. They illustrate the different archetypes and give an incredible example of the diversity of playable races in the game.
