The dark green talisman known as the Talisman of the Forest is the creation of an elder race of elves who lived apart from other races, remaining almost a myth. The wearer of this talisman and all in his company are blessed by the elven magic it contains, blurring their form in forest provinces. A leader wearing the talisman and his followers are able to attack an enemy without warning if in a forest province. Effectively a leader will enter battle as if he had prepared to ambush that turn. This effect is cumulative with any other bonus received.
