Talislanta is a fantasy roleplaying game and game-setting that was first published back in 1986.
Unlike most RPGs from the 1980s, the Talislanta milieu was not based on traditional Western mythology. It didn't have the usual Tolkien-esque trappings of games like D&D; in fact, ads for the game proudly proclaimed, "No Elves".
Inspired by the fantasy novels of Jack Vance, H.P. Lovecraft's The Dreamlands of Unknown Kadath, and Michael Moorcock's Elric novels, Talislanta is set in a strange world of twin suns and seven moons practically overflowing with exotic peoples, places, and creatures.
