Once the Aysle products are out at the end of the Kickstarter, post any questions here!

I don't know if I missed this in the books, but is it still canon that Tolwyn returned from the dead by possessing the comatose body of Wendy Miller? Also, I'm noticing that some of the "once a cosm" aspects of the books are missing, like the "Free Zone" and any sort of NPCs that could potentially replace Uthorion. Is that intentional?

Pretty confident this isn't canon anymore. I wouldn't want to spoiler anything for you, but if you're reading through all the previews released today you'll find out more about how she returned this time. ;)

The section on Drakacanus (Aysle SB P100) mentions some of the Dark Crown's potential replacements for Uthorion.

Yeah I just now got to that part of the mega-adventure. It's a damn shame too, I actually really liked that subplot. Ahh well, I'm already ignoring every time Tolwyn and Pella get called "friends", what's one more thing to change from the canon! :lol:

Tolwyn did not return from the dead through Wendy Miller.

As for the free zone, we might select one later that we won’t touch.

Not a true question, but after reading through the book, and making comments to my wife, I felt I needed to share her response. "OK, so when can we attach the Levitator to the Landship? We need a party boat. Get the DJ from the Living Land to "bring the beats" and its how all knights need to travel."

Actual question for verification. When a knight disconnects with a magical weapon that the current cosm supports (Say a long sword in Core earth), does the knight just lose the magical bonus or does the whole item phase out?

Hey Folks,

I only super fast skimmed the Aysle DC missons, but I didn't come across a Nile Talisman (ala Light's out Kali Station, Food for Thoth and....the LL one about the bluespines). The question is this, did I miss it? If not will there be more official appearances of the Talismans or this something that has been seeded but we should feel free to run with on our own now?

Thanks!

The whole item does.

Gotcha, thanks! I just double checked John's adventure in this book (fun read, btw) and I don't see a talisman there. Does he read the boards? Just wondering if he plans to pick them back up or if he's moved on from them (before I start hatching my plans).
