This looks exciting!

Quick Question -
Is there a ruleset comparison that can be done here?
is it D20 like D&D?
% based like Runequest?
D6 like ShadowRune?

Thanks in advance

It's a D6 system. 3d6 are rolled, added together, and compared to a difficulty number. (a bonus die can be added in certain instances, in which case the PC gets to choose 3 dice of his/her choice and discard one) One of the 3 dice is called the kismet die and is a different colour. It's still added to the other two dice, but additionally if it comes up as a 1 or a 6 it generates "Fate". A roll of one generates a point of dark fate, which the GM can spend to activate NPC special abilities etc. and a roll of 6 generates light fate which the PC can spend on similar boons (either immediately, or saved up for later encounters). There are degrees of success on tests as opposed to binary pass/fail, and rolling doubles or triples while meeting or exceeding the difficulty number can generate greater successes. That's all I've read so far, but looks good.

Well in the same way any fantasy game does. I don’t have a lot of love for swingy d20 based games such as D&D, so this looks fun. And it captures the spirit of the board game very well.

It was a bit expansive, but the pdf doesn't seem to be correct as there is missing art from the 7th page onwards?

Was?

You must be British: "... a bit expensive,..."

It's a placeholder. It's not meant for everyone to just buy.

Been in the works for about a year and a half now. Pegasus already released a modular Talisman board game for kids, and have a re-release (with some new modules too) of the FFG version of the regular Talisman, and there's a Talisman card game coming from them, too.

Format

Scanned image
These products were created by scanning an original printed edition. Most older books are in scanned image format because original digital layout files never existed or were no longer available from the publisher.

For PDF download editions, each page has been run through Optical Character Recognition (OCR) software to attempt to decipher the printed text. The result of this OCR process is placed invisibly behind the picture of each scanned page, to allow for text searching. However, any text in a given book set on a graphical background or in handwritten fonts would most likely not be picked up by the OCR software, and is therefore not searchable. Also, a few larger books may be resampled to fit into the system, and may not have this searchable text background.

For printed books, we have performed high-resolution scans of an original hardcopy of the book. We essentially digitally re-master the book. Unfortunately, the resulting quality of these books is not as high. It's the problem of making a copy of a copy. The text is fine for reading, but illustration work starts to run dark, pixellating and/or losing shades of grey. Moiré patterns may develop in photos. We mark clearly which print titles come from scanned image books so that you can make an informed purchase decision about the quality of what you will receive.
Original electronic format
These ebooks were created from the original electronic layout files, and therefore are fully text searchable. Also, their file size tends to be smaller than scanned image books. Most newer books are in the original electronic format. Both download and print editions of such books should be high quality.
