Folklore: The Affliction is getting another expansion called “The Fall of the Spire after surpassing it’s Kickstarter goal! This marks the second expansion following the release of “Dark Tales”. The expansion is to come with several new characters and yes of course, more stories.
For those of you out there that do not know what this game is, Think Dungeons and Dragons having a love child with Talisman 4th Edition Revised. I would not say that this games pushes the lines of Grimdark fantasy but there is a tone to the game that is darker than your average fantasy RPG. I am super excited that this game is getting a new expansion so let’s take a look at what is all coming along with this new release.
This game will come with 4 new characters: The Gentleman, the Huntress, The Viper maiden, and the Warlord. The game will also come with 6 new stories.
If you ever wanted to play a game like dungeons and dragons but as not have someone slave over being a dungeon master and really experience a story that is unknown to everyone, this is the game to do it. The game based off of the kickstarter arrival date is slated for December 2020. This is a long way off but for players that are just now hearing of this game, it gives everyone the opportunity to play through the large amount of content that this game already has as well as the expansion that already exists. Perhaps going through the story as a different character is something worth doing after this announcement.
So have you heard of Folklore before today? Do you think that a game like this works well as a board game? Comment below and let me know.
