Talislanta for FREE

Stephan Secchi, creator and owner of Talislanta (a wonderful game with a comical history of publishing difficulties) has decided to allow all Tal-products to be scanned and made freely available at talislanta.com.

I have loved Tal since it came out in '83 (or thereabouts). It's a game that actually had a recommendation on the book by Jack Vance. Yes: that Jack Vance. It's a wonderfully exotic baroque fantasy setting that manages to avoid being so weird that you don't know what to do with it.

As much as I love it, I do not have absolutely everything ever published for it. But I might soon.

In a day where game companies try to squeeze the gamer for everything he has and then some based upon a business model of endless, useless supplements, this is just something I don't even know how to describe.
