Original Talisman designer self-releases follow-up after 26 years

So this is interesting: Bob Harris, who designed Talisman for Games Workshop in 1983, has published a short-run limited edition of Mythgardia, a new fantasy adventure game that, at first glance, both does and doesn’t remind one of Talisman. It is self-published and seems to straddle the line between handmade prototype and “real” product (although it is professionally printed), but for bragging rights and a first glimpse at the evolution of a classic, who cares? Small editions like this one from legendary designers generally get scarfed up at Essen or something, never to be seen again; here’s a rare chance to buy one online (for a bit less than collector’s prices).
