Folklore: The Affliction
We’re getting to the final days of manufacturing, and our pledge manager is closing May 10th. If you have not completed your pledge by then, we won’t be able to send you your pledge, and that would be a tragedy. Please if you have not completed your pledge by now, go to https://gbg.pledgemanager.com/projects/folklore-the-affliction-2nd-printing/participate/ to finalize your pledge before then!
Other updates on Folklore: Here are the proofs we received this week!
Champions of Hara
Production is underway, and the first proofs are looking great! The box has been upgraded to fit a deluxe card organizer. It’s even sized to hold all the expansion cards! We couldn’t not be more excited without the quality of the components. Check out this photo album to take a peek at our first sample box!
Also as a reminder…it’s coming sooooon!
Live on Kickstarter May 15th!
Posthuman Saga is a tactical-survival adventure, rich in story, set in the mutant-infested post-apocalyptic world of Posthuman. You play as a rookie in the Fortress’ militia, sent out beyond the defensive perimeter to prove your worth on missions to the outposts in the muta
nt-infested Wilds. Posthuman Saga features streamlined mechanics that force tough choices on every level: from the puzzle of the modular terrain tiles at the map level to the attrition management involved in keeping characters alive and free from mutations, through tactical, card-based combat. Players can always take time to recuperate, but they risk losing their reputation if the other players get ahead – and the Fortress will only keep those indispensable few within the safety of its walls…
