One distinction Talislanta has had for many years is the elegance of its magic system. Tal fans will be pleased to see that not only have we kept this system largely intact but we have dened it in d20 terms, again, bringing the OGL and d20 STL to Talislanta and not vice versa. Along with Core Rulebook I from Wizards of the Coast, this book is all you will need to begin adventuring in the fantastic and dangerous world of Talislanta. Again, experienced Talislanta fans will notice decidedly fewer character types than they may be familiar with from previous editions. No need to worry, if your favorite race or class didnt make it into this book, then it most certainly will appear in one of the number of other books and supplements we have planned for Talislanta. In particular, due to space restrictions, only a handful of creatures and monsters are presented in this book.

Sa

Older fans of Talislanta will recognize many of the same rules as previous editions of the game but will also notice that some of the sacred cows of Talislanta are gone. Archetypes for example are absent from this edition in favor of the more standard class and level system familiar to many gamers. That said, the classes, races, skills and feats of Talislanta have been carefully crafted around the world of Talislanta and thus are custom made for the Talislanta player.

This edition of Talislanta was designed under the Open Game License and d20 System Trademark License by Wizards of the Coast. As such, players familiar with other d20 games should nd the concepts and ideas presented within readily identiable. Great effort was made by the game designers to t the d20 system around Talislanta and not vice-versa. Talislanta has a long and respected history in the RPG industry and great care was taken not to mess with the core of the world to force it into a game system for which is was not designed.

That said, players wanting more monsters should look for the Talislanta Menagerie from Morrigan Press in the coming months (early 2005). For spellcasting players, the Codex Magicus will be an invaluable tool, fully detailing Talislantan magic and containing many new magical character classes. In addition, several regional guides are also forthcoming These will go into much greater detail of the various locales found on Talislanta. Finally, for those looking for a more detailed overview of the continent of Talislanta, pick up a copy of the Chronicles of Talislanta (revised & annotated). Written by the renowned wizard Tamerlin, the Chronicles detail his travels around the continent and contain much more detail then we could squeeze into the world guide chapter of this book. We hope you enjoy this new edition of Talislanta and have hours of fun playing in this unique world in the annals of roleplaying games.
