From a dank mausoleum deep in the Graveyard, an unholy being rises from her grave. In life, she was wealthy and powerful... but in her greed she made a pact with dark forces; she won eternal life, but now must stalk the night as an abomination of nature, preying on the living.
She is hunted by the good people of the land, made to hide like an animal from the weapons of angry peasants. But not for long... for she has left the safety of her tomb to seek the power of the Crown of Command, and if she acquires it, she will gorge herself on the blood of the living for all time!
The Highland, a new expansion for Talisman, is heading your way this spring. With it comes a custom-fitted map board and over 100 new cards, along with six brand-new characters, each represented by a superbly detailed plastic playing piece! We saw the first of these characters, the Alchemist, two weeks ago. Today, let’s take a look at the evil Vampiress.

A powerful and seductive undead entity cursed with the need to prowl the night, the Vampiress can feed on the recently deceased of the Graveyard, healing her life by one. And if her victim isn’t quite dead yet... well, she can deal with that too. She can tempt followers away from their masters, and either keep them for herself or make a light snack of them!
Join us next time for another glimpse at this exciting expansion to Talisman!
Talisman is a classic board game of adventuring in which journeys through the lands in search of the powerful Crown of Command. Take control of one of several different characters from a powerful Troll to a magical Druid, and enter a beloved world of fantasy adventure!
Hmm, she's not bad.
The miniature will probably look like the character card. Basically it's Elvira; mistress of the dark with peroxided hair.
What does the miniature look like?
She is a very interesting character, I cannot wait to purchase this expansion and giver her a try. Wow that sounds bad :-)
I like! It'll be interesting to see how she does. I like how she starts as a 3/3
She's a bit like the Dark Elf from 2nd edition but with the follower stealing and graveyard healing ability as well. A pretty good character and not crazily overpowered like the Warlock from Frostmarch. Looking forward to this expansion.
I like the abilities from the Vampiress :D
Here we finally have a character that easily can get rid of those damn bothersome followers that sometimes show up ^^
