Legends say all magic in the land comes from an enchanted stream that flows from the tallest mountain. Atop the tallest peaks, the magical waters are at their most pure and potent, and the banks are littered with precious gems. But one must beware, for within the Highland dwells the feared Eagle King, guardian of the source of magic. Intruders and fortune-seekers will receive no mercy, for he has not forgotten that jewels stolen from him now adorn the Crown of Command itself!
Talisman: The Highland adds a new Region to the game for heroes to explore. A custom-fitted map board and over 100 new cards bring this mountainous realm vividly to life, while six brand-new characters, each represented with a superbly detailed plastic miniature, offer fantastic new playing experiences. Climb as high as you dare, and lay claim to the unimaginable wealth that awaits atop the tallest peak in the world of Talisman!

A new set of gem "trinket" cards as alternative or additional ones to what is found in the Highlands deck. These do not require waiting to reach the City's Alchemist in order to spend them, though you can gain their full value there just the same. However, you can spend these just like gold/currency, but with some limitation. A Highlands card back is included should you wish to use them in addition to those in the deck. You will need standard card sleeves in order to use them as additions or replacements.
