A traveling peddler reaches a wayside inn just ahead of hungry wolves, and finds every room shared by as many weary travelers as will fit, every table in the taproom claimed as a bed. Save for the haunted attic. Too cold and wet to survive a night in the stables or out in the forest, he braves the attic, and hears whispers in his dreams. Whispers that drive him to seek out the dead, and avenge them.
Whispers that will be part of his probably short life henceforth, as the skull floating at his shoulder talks on…
About the Setting
Enter an age where our ancestors truly feared the night, when folklore was a thing told in secret to aid survival and not just tales to keep frightened children from sleeping in their beds. Folklore is a setting steeped in fear, myth and superstition, a backdrop for dark and exciting adventure. Hunt or be hunted by creatures of antiquity and legend, both mortal and supernatural. Search dangerous locales and peruse forgotten lore.
Discover the Afflictions that even now sink their claws into the heart of the land. Folklore: the Affliction uses the mythology of our own past as the antagonist. The heroes of our stories must face the Afflictions that are rising from the darkness.
The Ed Greenwood Group, in collaboration with Greenbrier Games and Twin Fire Productions, is proud to present the exclusive fiction based on the wildly popular board game, available only from TEGG! Would you like to know more about Folklore: The Affliction? Click here to go to the TEGG website!
