There are reports of a big book of Talislanta art forthcoming, a cool idea for an RPG that was so strongly defined by its art. Can Skyrealms of Jorune be far behind?
In the meantime, the first edition of Talislanta is available for download, so take a look. I never played the system (released at the height of my high school 1E days), but thumbed through it enough that I have a passing familiarity with it, and once witnessed a session at a convention. There were lots of "funny voices" used at that table, I recall, which did little to inspire me to investigate further, though that was probably an idiosyncracy of that particular group rather than the game itself. I hope.
Definitely some cool monsters in there, the kind of stuff you'd expect to see haunting the ruin-filled primal jungles of one of Moorcock's bizaare worlds... Download here.
