Greenbrier Games is rapidly approaching the end of their funding campaign for the fantasy board game Folklore: The Affliction. Having already passed a quarter of a million dollars in pledges, the miniatures based title only has three days left but there’s still time to get on board. Folklore screams “EPIC!” with over 150 minis available and supporters can snag the core set (including 70 figures) with a minimum pledge of $95.00.
Plus, even if you don’t play the board game itself, those are some mighty sweet looking minis!
About Folklore: The Affliction:
Folklore the Affliction is a dark fantasy role playing board game for 1-5 players that does not require a game master. Adventure in a land steeped in fear, myth and superstition. Hunt or be hunted by creatures of antiquity and legend. Explore dangerous locales to find clues to the sources of evil sinking claws into the heart of the land, and decimating the populace. Defend the weak from the scourge of witchcraft and the demonic, the taint of lycanthropy and vampirism. Advance through highly immersive stories of epic scale with multi-layer character development in an on-going quest to drive the darkness back into the hell from which it came.
Players choose their story, which contain chapters that provide convenient stopping points for controlling session lengths. Stories escalate in difficulty as the characters unearth lore to defeat ancient evils known as Afflictions and drive them back into the hell from which they came. Your party of 1-5 characters travel together, explore the world map, and encounter some surprises along the way! Search corridors and catacombs, solve puzzles, earn gear, set traps, avoid snares, gain companions, learn abilities, and more!
