(Kickstarter) Talislanta: The Savage Land

It's a moment of happiness, the Talislanta - The Savage Land Kickstarter has launched!
Talislanta: the Savage Land is a prequel to the original Talislanta game. It takes place just a short time after The Great Disaster, which the inhabitants of this era refer to as The Fall.

This period is like a nightmarish version of our own Dark Ages. All knowledge of spell-casting has been lost; maps are nearly non-existent, and much of the world is unknown. Most of those who survived The Fall are illiterate, and governed by superstition.

There are no nations, city states, or even laws. In their place, tribes of warriors, nomads, slavers, and refugees struggle to survive in a hostile wasteland, torn by centuries of warfare and a malevolent magical maelstrom known as the Gyre.

This is the world in which Talislanta: the Savage Land (TSL) takes place.

he world of TSL is dangerous and largely unexplored. Anything the inhabitants pre-Fall knew of the world is of little value now. The landscape has shifted. The great nations were sundered. Civilization itself has shattered.

This new vision of Talislanta is a world awaiting your discovery!
The only thing I'm questioning is the three different rulebooks offered:
  • TSL - "Classic" Talislanta Rules
  • 5E - Not 5th Edition Tal, rather 5th Edition D&D
  • d6 Open -  as in the old West End System
...although all three books are available as pdfs.
