Development Update ('Tis the season of giving)
We've been extremely busy here at the Nomad office and thought it would be a good time to give you all an update on all of the various goings on.

Gold Pack Gifts
We want to say a big thank you to owners of the Gold pack, by giving you all an extra 3 copies of Talisman: Digital Edition which you can give away as gifts to your family and friends this Thanksgiving and Christmas. These extra copies of the game will automatically appear in your Steam inventory next week. This applies to everyone who has bought the Gold pack in the past and from now on.

The Highland
The next expansion, The Highland, is well underway and is expected to be released in January. I'll be posting previews of the new cards, characters and board in this forum as I did with the Dungeon expansion so look out for those soon!

Cross-Platform Multiplayer
Now that the Dungeon has been released on PC, Android and iOS, we'll be hard at work making those platforms able to play against each other in online games. We plan to roll this out next month, but we're also moving offices next month too which may impact development a little.

New Characters
We have three new characters on the horizon -
Shape Shifter, one of the most interesting characters so far from a strategic aspect. I'll make a separate thread about this new character soon.
And, making their long-awaited return from the 2nd Edition expansions - Ninja and Pirate!
The Ninja and the Pirate will be given away for FREE in the next few weeks and I'll be previewing them before they're available.

Mac Version
The Mac version is almost ready for release! We're looking for volunteers to beta test it so please reply to this discussion if you're interested. I'll invite you into a Steam group and provide instructions there about how to install it.

Achievements
Many of you have requested more achievements so we're going to be adding lots more in the next few weeks. More information soon!

Hello - I would love to beta test the Mac version. I have the season pass through Steam (and also own it on IOS with all dlc to date). I'm still figuring my way around the game, but it is my one of my favorites, and now that I just got a MacBook Air for my business, it will be great to have on Mac - thanks!

Hi there!
I already requested to be added to the beta testing team with an e-mail some time ago.
Renewing the request here as well.
Keep up the good work!

P.S. I own the gold pack and a MacBook Pro mid2010

Does this only apply to Gold Pack owners or do Season Pass holders get this too? I bought the 4-pack for myself and some friends and then bought myself the season pass right along with it. I've since bought 3 more friends copies of them game including a lot of dlc for all of them. Would be interested to know if us season pass holders could get these copies too.

I'm up for helping test the Mac version, and I was also wondering the same thing as Culgan: is it just Gold Pack or does it also include Season Pass holders?

Hmm isnt the Gold Pack the Seasonpass?

I don't have the season pass but I think I have the gold edition. I bought the game back in Early Access and it came with the prologue game.

I jumped on the Android DE as soon as it dropped. Will there a season pass of sorts for that coming or a "complete game purchase" option? Not too excited about having to buy everything over again but I am very psyched for the cross platform play. Will it be like Smallworld 2 and Ticket to Ride and we'll have to create a Nomad account?

Good on you Nomads for getting into the spirit of the season! Cheers to all of you and your families, and thanks for all the hard work cranking out more content!

Now, the Ninja and Pirate. I'm curious how these will be modified to fit into modern Talisman.

The Ninja I'd imagine will still have his no Follower restriction, be able to Evade all Faceup Enemies, and still deduct his Craft from opponents Attack Scores in Battle when initiating the Battle. The ability to not Encounter a space but still draw a card is weird, probably easier to just allow him to choose not to Encounter any space only, and ignore the bit about still drawing cards since that violates how Encounter sequences in 4th Ed. work in a rather fundamental way. Probably reasonable to give him lowish Fate, like 2 or so.

The Pirate is pretty terrible in 2nd Ed. +1 when rolling in the Tavern is ok, and making a Raft without an Axe is ok, but neither is great. Pillaging Gold spent at Healers and Doctors is ok, but very unreliable if no one spends Gold on those spaces. Capturing Strangers is where the character has some potential, but in its original form, is nearly pointless. Just grabbing a Stranger, packing them around for no benefit for awhile, then dropping them on a space just isn't very useful. The best idea I have for this ability would be to be able to choose a result or wish that is on the Stranger card when freeing them, ignoring alignment restrictions. This would be interesting, especially if you got rid of the 2nd Ed. restriction of it not working on certain Strangers (ie Witch). Probably a nice Fate value, around 4 or 5 would be appropriate.

Just my 2 cents, looking forward to seeing how they have been retooled for the updated game environment! :BlueTalisman:

No it's different. The Gold Pack includes Talisman Prologue, Talisman Digital Edition and the Season pass.

Since I and many others bought the 4-pack we were unable to buy the Gold Pack (as we already owned the game), so I and probably many others picked up the season pass.

Having bought the 4-pack, 3 individual copies of the game, the season pass for myself and buying almost all of the dlc for all 6 of my friends that I bought the game for, it'd be a real shame to miss out on getting those 3 free copies of the game just because I didn't make the specific purchase of the Gold Pack when I've bought all the content within that pack several times over.
