Probably mostly old news here....but FFG just sent a press release for TALISMAN: THE DUNGEON and INNSMOUTH HORROR...they're slated for a May release. The RTL Overlord figures are also on the docket.

Anyway, official word:

The ancient door crumbles to splinters as your cleated boot kicks away rotting wood and your swordclears thick cobwebs from your path. Your torch throws darting shadows on damp stone walls revealing the Dungeon ahead!

Do you have the courage to plunge into the darkness and confront its perils? Legends say that in the deepest pits of this abyss, the Lord of Darkness stands watch over a vast treasure that even includes a portal that leads to the renowned Crown of Command!

Talisman: The Dungeon adds a new Region to the game for heroes to explore. A custom-fitted map board and over 100 new cards bring this subterranean realm vividly to life. Five brand-new characters – the formidable Gladiator, noble Amazon, dashing Swashbuckler, enigmatic Gypsy, and sagacious Philosopher– are each brought to life with a superbly detailed plastic miniature, and offer fantastic new playing experiences.

Brave untold dangers, and discover what lies in the darkness beneath the world of Talisman!

TALISMAN: THE DUNGEON retails for $39.95 and is apparently made in China. Just counting the days until TIMESCAPE is announced.

[i]Of all the cities found in H.P. Lovecraft’s vision of Massachusetts, perhaps none is quite so deadly as the small fishing village of Innsmouth. Decrepit and dying, Innsmouth is being consumed from within by an ancient pact once made to save the town. The investigators will find every hand turned against them as they explore its rotting docks and fetid beaches. In the end, perhaps the only way to save Innsmouth is by destroying it along with the terrible creatures that haunt its waters near Devil Reef.

Innsmouth Horror introduces several new game concepts to the Arkham Horror board game, including Personal Stories unique to each investigator as well as the Innsmouth Look. The town of Innsmouth is hostile to the investigators, and they may well find themselves thrown in jail and fed to a Shoggoth while they search the town for evidence to call in the Feds. However, leaving Innsmouth to fester is a bad idea, since the Deep Ones will gather and rise, bringing with them the Ancient One. Innsmouth Horror also adds 16 new investigators, eight new Ancient Ones, two new Heralds, Epic Battle cards for the new Ancient Ones, over 30 new monster markers, plenty of new encounters, and an expansion board featuring the town of Innsmouth. Over all, this expansion adds over 300 new cards to the base game. [/i]

300 MORE CARDS?!  Agh, this is madness!  Personal stories, huh? Sounds familiar...fifty bucks retail. Why not...the big expasions are the good ones.

Anyway, looks like two cool expansions to look for in May.
