ⓘ The Chronicles of Talislanta

In 1982 Stephan Michael Sechi, Steven Cordovano and Vernie Taylor formed the company Bard Games to produce their own Dungeons & Dragons supplements. In 1986, due to personal and financial disagreements that arose after the publication of The Atlantis Trilogy, Sechi sold his shares in Bard Games to Cordovano and left, to begin work on another role-playing game system and its supplements. When Cordovano decided that he did not want to run Bard Games and sold it back to Sechi, Sechi had the opportunity to publish his new game, Talislanta.

After publication of the rules in The Talislantan Handbook in 1987, Sechi also published three supplements: The Chronicles of Talislanta, A Naturalists Guide to Talislanta, and Talislanta Sorcerers Guide.

                                     

1. Contents

The Chronicles of Talislanta is an 88-page perfect-bound softcover book with illustrations by P.D. Breeding-Black that is an introduction to the continent of Talislanta, the countries and kingdoms and their people. The content is presented as the recollections of the wizard Tamerlin.

                                     

2. Reception

In the July-August 1989 edition of Space Gamer Vol. II No. 1, Craig Sheeley enjoyed the details of the various cultures and races that inhabit the continent, saying, "More attention is given to the beings that inhabit each area, since the real uniqueness of Talislanta lies in the diverse people - at present count, over 70 sentient races or man-like species inhabit the continent."

In the March 1989 edition of Dragon Issue #143, Jim Bambra called Tamerlins accounts of his journeys "lively and informative." Bambra concluded, The Chronicles of Talislanta is not a collection of entries to be dutifully plowed through in order to learn about this fabulous land. Instead, it’s fun to read and very colorful."
