Enter the age where our ancestors truly feared the night, where Manors, Castles, Forests and Graveyards loom over the countryside waiting to be infested with those ancient evils that man has long since forgotten. Enter the age where folklore was a thing that was told in secret as a means of survival and not just a tale to keep frightened children from sleeping in their beds. Launching this October on Kickstarter from Twin Fire Productions, LLC.

This is Folklore, an adventure board game like you’ve never seen before with over 5 years of development. Play one of 6 characters in a 1-4 player game that requires no game master. It is set in our own past, where characters acquire Lore as they face and defeat the malign and supernatural forces known as Afflictions. Explore the countryside amidst winding mountain passes and overgrown trails…down the halls of opulent manors and ancient castles and through dark and deep places, you are on a quest to uncover the Lore which binds the evils to our world and lets them pass unchallenged. You play one whose destiny is linked to hunting down those things which brought terror to our people, those things which led them to change their culture, spread salt on their doorsteps and hang garlic in their windowsills. Folklore: the Affliction is a highly immersive board game of epic scale and expandability. Multi-layer Character development and player interaction spearheads this collaborative ongoing adventure in a quest to drive the darkness back into the hell from which it came.

Adventuring

Travel the countryside of the old world. Move from towns and farms to objective locations in your hunt for Lore and your quest for liberation of the people from the plagues that haunt them. Gather up your Lore to acquire abilities and to power artifacts long forgotten. Travel to places in search of clues and combat your enemies in a struggle for the safety of man. Move into adventure locations and use your miniature to traverse the boards to explore, uncover mystery and stake a sleeping vampire in its coffin!

Storylines

Intense story telling and combat action that pits you against your most frightening foes with strategy building both on and off the battlefield , resource management, power consumption and item creation that makes Folklore: the Affliction an experience you wont forget. You’ve never seen it like this…you’ve never played it like this—with top notch story design, attention to detail, art that brings you into the adventure and into your character. We haven’t spared any expense over the past 5 years on design and playtesting to bring you the game we always wanted to play. This is a game made by lifelong gamers who love the best of RPGs and adventure board games as well as strategy and player interaction.
