In the past I was reluctant to run games in the Talislanta milieu because of one of the very things that makes the game so interesting: Its diversity of non-human character races. I thought it would be difficult for the players to keep all of the different races and creatures straight and I would be constantly having to re-describe every being they encountered in great detail for them to get a grasp on who (or what) they were encountering. So I stuck to more common worlds that were more identifiable.
Have any of you played or run a Talislanta campaign? If so, how did you find it? Did the plethora of races cause much confusion?
