    Its actually very hard to obtain functional tailsmans from various Taoist lineages given they are firstly generally kept 'secret' as much as possible while those you may find around shown outwardly are quite 'low level' at best. Depending on what they are, they can also come with features such a capability to deactivate themselves when 'revealed'.

    I know this is an old thread, but figured I'd see if anyone was still interested. Are you looking for existing, pre-made talismans, or do you want to make your own? I find that drawing talismans in the traditional manner helps me practice calligraphy, but I am not very skilled with written Chinese (especially fu, or mystical writing.) So, sometimes I'll write the bulk of the petition in English using more traditional tools/altar/ceremony/etc. and it seems to work pretty well, provided that I have properly charged and empowered what needs to be and the symbolism/intent is there.
